Looking to get into the whole "Domain buying" game to start sending some link juice to some of my lower competition pages. Just wondering if anyone can give me any tips as to where people are buying expired domains from? A pr2 domain would be nice (Yes I understand that with the lack of PR update I should be checking the domains backlinks), but I would settle for a PR1.

Just looking for some pointers really.

Thanks!

    Go Daddy auctions is a real popular one! - https://auctions.godaddy.com/

    If you're looking for something more IM and affiliate specific, Flippa is a good place to score a slightly established site.

    Look for pr domains in DP forum too.

    However, Godaddy Auction is a big place, you can find some domains which don't have any bid as well.. you just need to give time in searching there..

    You can also check Godaddy close-out section, where domains can be bought for $5/$10 these are those domain names which don't sell in Auction.

    You can purchase PR1-3 domains and the odd PR4 domain for the cost of registration. You can easily find these domains in the closeout section of Expired Domains with PR, Backlinks and more completely FREE.

    You can also use the tool on my site below to find quality high PA/DA domains.

    I'm not an expert in buying expired domains but godaddy auction is the worst place one can think of. People who go to bid there are insane!!! a PR-4 domain might go upto $1000 or even more before the auction closes. lol!!!

    Definitely use expireddomains.net (free) to get a general idea of what dropped domain are out there. That tool aggregates data from a bunch of different places (including GoDaddy).

    But if you're serious about this, I recommend Register Compass. It's an INSANELY thorough tool that finds every domain that's available on the internet. It also provides nifty metrics like TrustFlow, DA/PA etc.

      Surely. I am on the same opinion with Backlinko. Expireddomains.net is a good site to start searching for expired domains from various different sources. I would suggest you to try it out.

    You have various sites like godaddy auctions, namejet, sedo, snapnames and dynadot.

    You can use an intermediate site like Domain Auction Information - DomCop that gets your more data on the domains to help you decide on its value.

    My order of preference is GD, NameJet, SnapNames

    NameJet and Snapnames start higher (59-69) but I've gotten my best quality and PR names at those two. GD has lots of volume and you can get good prices now and then.

    When I am looking to buy a few names I pay for research at FreshDrop.net. It saves a lot of time and is worth the price for me.

      Register compass for me. If you are investing a fair amount of money on expired domains I would highly recommend it.

      When it comes to buying expired domains, I’m not an expert but looks like Godaddy is where most buyers go to. It’s quite a big place where you can easily find domains and because there are lots of choices, you might get confused which ones to buy. The good thing is that you can find there the cheapest domains specifically in the close-out section where you’ll get to buy those that cost between $5 and $10.

      Good PR3 or PR4s can RARELY be found through powershot in that range. The price itself is a total myth. Shucks just the registration fee at Godaddy on an auction is $12 without the bid price.

        I never find anything but pr1 and pr2 domains with prpowershot. Granted, for $12 bucks its whatevs, worth it to try it once in a while when I'm bored.

        Better option...Spend the $50 bucks or whatever it is on Scrapebox. Found several OLD pr4 and pr5 domains free to register with SB. Theres lots to be had. The downside? It's not "automated" in the sense that it will find domains FOR you, you have to be 1 part clever and 1 part do some major boring ass work for a few hours sifting through data to find the gems. But when you do it's pure honey, as in gold.

        SB is running on one of my other machines right now. It ran all night and scrapped 2.3 million URL's for specific criteria and keywords, and is now checking PR on each and every one. In about 8 hours or so when it finishes, I will take all the URL's with pr5 or above, and check all the links coming FROM each url. All broken links will be checked to see if the domain is available, and if it is what it's still active backlink profile is. If it meets my criteria, I register it. That is how I find PR4 and PR5 domains.

        What is important to remember is that these are EXPIRED domains, so they won't currently have ANY PR, but if the pr5 and above links are still active, than they will return to that level on the next toolbar update.

    PR isn't the best metric to go by with or without the update (it can be faked). If you want to get into this then your gonna need to do some serious research and use the right tools. As you said the backlinks profile is what your gonna want to look at and for that you will need to know exactly what good backlink profile's looks like.

    I'd echo the GoDaddy suggestion... they only make you wait a week for the domain to pend... just remember to get creative with the way you're searching - sometimes I feel like it's easier to go after an "aged" domain and hit it with a few PR links while rankings it - this usually accomplishes the same feat (aged, PR domain), it just takes a little longer to wait for the PR update (adjust depending on your end-goal).

    As mentioned previously, PR Powershot & Register Compass are okay options. You definitely want to get your hands on Scrapebox though.

    It's hard enough finding good domains with PR and a decent backlink profile without spending some time and then most likely getting gouged on price. So it may be worth it to look into using SB and Xenu link sleuth and spending the time to find some older expired domains that still have super strong backlink profiles that you can buy for the standard registration fee and will gain actual PR once you get them up and running again.

    A good reference on this can be found here:

    You're going to spend the time looking any way, so get good at looking beyond just the options that are being presented on the surface.

    Don't waste time on godaddy. I would say SnapNames, Snapnames is your best bet. Auction process at Snapnames is pretty fair and straightforward.

    Godaddy auctions are great, good and cheaper domains there. Namecheap is the second choice.

      Please don't confuse people. Namecheap is a good registrar but their auctions are the pits.

    Buying domains is one of the most lucrative businesses.. I am doing it since 2013 and have generated good income.

    As I have spent a lot of time in this business so I have written one post where I talked about precautions before buying expired domains.

      It used to be a good source for domains, but it's gotten too much exposure. And with the surge in people buying PR domains, I think some good ones that used to make it all the way to expireddomains.net now get bought before that point.

      In the past I picked up a few PR3/PR4 domains now and then, but I don't see those any more. Maybe an occasional nice PR1 or PR2, but that's about it.

        Yeah it simply isn't worth it in my opinion. The time searching for these could be better spent elsewhere. It's simply too much effort filtering the fake PRs, the redirected domains and the spammed to death domains

    GOdaddy auctions are a ripoff. Even if you get a "good deal" you still have to pay them to renew the domain etc.
