What’s your go-to search criteria for finding investment-grade expired domain names?

What’s your go-to search criteria for finding investment-grade expired domain names?

I was talking to a friend the other day who has been buying expired domain names a lot longer than me. Before I knew it we were sharing the specific criteria and filters that we used when looking for expired domains, we both had a ton of different one – but each of us had one go-to.

What was funny about our criteria is that we had a pretty big range across our top ten search criteria, but our go-to’s (i.e. the one we used the most) was almost exactly the same. This made me think, I wonder how many other people use similar criteria to find investment-grade expired domains.

At the same time I thought…I haven’t changed my criteria in a while, and neither had my friend, maybe we were getting old and stuck in our ways. So I thought, why not share my go-to filter/criteria for finding expired domains and then open it up to the community to share theirs.

Now I know what you’re thinking. “Wait! Morgan – aren’t you giving away a secret? And why would I share mine with you in that case!”

Eh, that’s overly paranoid IMO. I don’t think we need to keep things like this a secret, honestly here are enough expired domains out there and I’d rather share and learn together than live in a vacuum. So here we go – this is the criteria I filter by when looking at expired domains.

TLD: .COM only

Dashes/Numbers included: No

Domain Age: 5 years or older

Max length: 10 characters

Max bids: 10

Ending in: Less than two days
