monetary value of an expired domain by transforming the face of
the domain. Transforming the face of the domain means adding a
premium value to your domains expired. In essence, commercial
meaning of domain flipping is buying domains at very low prices
and later selling them at higher rates to make a neat profit. An
expired domain by itself is of little use unless you have an
absolute gem in your hand. A raw expired domain may fetch as low
as $50 and this may not yield you very good profits. However,
flipped domains are absolute stunners with their abilities to
provide you profits in excess of 200 to 400%!

traffic. However, you may find odd expired domains with lots of
links and traffic attached to them. If you do not have any links
or traffic with your domains, you may wish to accumulate them by
buying commercially available traffic and links or by developing
a content rich web site. If you are using a new web site built
