By Fernando Raymond | September 28, 2019
Expired domains are high in demand due to more and more people buying them and investing in expired domain names. I’ve invested in expired domains and bought many good expired domains to date.
What are expired domains?
Domains that are not renewed or dropped by their owners without continuation fall into the category of the expired domain.
There is a time period the expired domains can be renewed by the owners and if they do not do that, the domain is available to be registered and owned by a new person.
There are domain snippers like Saket Wahi and Kasun Sameera who wait for the moment the domains are dropped by their owners without renewal and they grab the opportunities.
Kasun normally registers the expired domains at SeekaHost and stores them as expired domains to resell them later to SEO services providers.
Saket has been in the expired domains buying and selling the business for years now and he is one of the best expired domain experts in the market with an eye to snap up great SEO friendly domains.
Likewise, there are thousands of people who invest in expired domains and get them for their business websites or register and host them with SeekaHost, ready to push when someone pays the fee expected for the domain name.
Why invest in expired domains?
Expired domains are high in demand due to their SEO power. They can help pass on SEO power to a site it is linked with. Thousands of people bought PBN hosting services from SeekaHost to host expired domains and build blogs that can help their SEO services.
Investing in expired domains is comparable to investing in real estate because there’s an equally high in demand and the buyer can build websites on it and sell or rent the websites for SEO services providers or business owners who want to rank their websites high on Google and generate leads.
However, domains may also lose their value if they lose their backlinks and authority.
Check the domain > https://ukbusinesslist.co.uk/ we have just bought recently. We’re building a new WordPress website on it. It already has a hundred of backlinks from many sites which makes it a powerful domain also, it’s a plus advantage for SEO.
Using such domains is one of the best ways to support SEO backlinks.

Which domain should you not invest in?
- Bad history domains
- Penalised domains by Google
- Dropped domains due to legal issues and trademark concerns
- Domains with hyphens. For example, name-you.com instead get nameyou.com
- Bad backlink profile domains
Those are the main aspects to look at when considering investing in expired domains.
Try to look for shorter domain names with you can build a brand on. Those domains are high in demand.
For example, a domain name like clickdo.co.uk is versatile and ideal for many online services and that’s why the person who has registered clickdo.com is asking for a huge sum from me to resell the domain even though I own the ClickDo™ brand name online with the trademark.
Don’t be stupid to invest in domains names/titles that someone has a trademark for, because no one will buy it and you can’t even set up a business on such domains.
The current owner of the clickdo.com domain firmly holds on to it and keeps on renewing it year after year. He’s done so for the last 5 years now thinking that I pay him his asking price. **If you read this, email him or show him this article by checking clickdo.com
