What is an expired Domain Name?

An expired Domain Name is a Domain Name which was
previously registered but the owner did not re-register it.
If a Domain Name expires, it becomes available for anyone
to register.

Why are Expired Domains so Popular?

One reason is that if the domain name itself has a lot of
link popularity, it will have an established source of
traffic. What this means to you is if you snap up an
Expired Domain with an established source of traffic, you
will have a site with instant traffic.

To prove that expired Domain Names with traffic not o要ly
exist, but exist abundantly, I will show you a site which
sells Traffic from Expired Domains. That's all they do!

The site is:
http://www.adbuytraffic.com and they openly
state o要 their FAQ page where the traffic comes from.

How to Locate Expired Domains

I will show you how to locate Expired Domains for Free. The
money you save can be used for other things such as web
hosting.

But first, just to see how all this works, check out
http://www.bizmint.com. They will charge you a monthly fee
to access their database of Expired Domains.

Now go to
http://www.deleteddomains.com where you can
search for Deleted and Expired Domain Names for FREE.

What Program Enables an Expired Domain Name Search?

The above sites all use some kind of Script which will
search for Expired Domains. These Scripts are usually
written in Perl and will run o要 a UNIX web host which
supports Perl.

There is a couple of ways to get your hands o要 o要e of these
special programs.

1. Go to
http://www.hotscripts.com or
http://www.scriptsearch.com and search for the term
"Expired Domain Name" You will get several results which
contain Free and Fee scripts. Remember to try your own
search terms too.

2. Go to
http://www.scriptlance.com and post a project up
for bid. You will get programmers from all over the world
bidding o要 your project. The beauty about this is that you
can specify exactly what you want your script to do and you
will most likely pay much less for a full featured script.
Plus you will own the rights to the script.

So How Can You Profit from Expired Domains?

In his course, Corey Rudl explains o要e website model that
should interest you right now. The website model goes like
this:

Find a service which somebody is charging money for o要 the
Internet.

Offer a similar service for Free and have no sales messages
on the site in the early days.

Corey goes o要 to explain that after thousands of people
link to your site, you can convert the site into some kind
of profit model by selling ad space, your own product that
you have created or affiliate products etc.

So clearly, the o要es who make the most money from Expired
Domain Names are the o要es at the top of the Pecking-Order.

Will you make the most money by joining an Expired Domain
names affiliate program or will you make more if you have
thousands of Affiliates selling your product or service.

What would you rather do?

Pay 10 bucks a month to access a database of expired
domains or pay 10 bucks a month for web hosting and own the
whole deal?

What if you offered Free Expired Domain Name Search o要 your
site but also offered Domain Name Registrations o要 the
search results page?

To see an example of a regular Free Domain Name Search and
Domain Name Registration business go to
http://www.domainsearch.com.

Conclusion:

Always try to be at the top of the Pecking-Order.

Before you join an affiliate program, consider creating a
similar product or service. Have thousands of affiliates
selling YOUR products and services.

Only sell affiliate products which compliment your own
products but do not compete with them.
