A fellow WA member posted today about how much is your domain worth. Out of curiosity, I punched in a domain name I bought recently for $13.99. It has zero content. The GoDaddy site said the domain name was worth almost $1000.
A couple of questions came to mind.
Is this a realistic dollar amount I could expect to receive if I sold it, which I am not?
Is buying and reselling domain names a good way to make a little extra money?
Any input would be appreciated.

It frustrating when trying to register a domain and you can't because some has it for the sake of having it.

If you get lucky, or are intelligent about how you do it.

My friend registered a domain for his wife. Didn't really do anything with it. Alice's Garden or something like that. He ended up getting $10k for it. Didn't even try to sell it and someone made the offer.

On the other hand, my veterinary web site for my practice has been around about 10 years and gets lots of view and GoDaddy says it's worth about $1k lol.

Yeah, it seems there are no rules online. Throw it out there and see if it sticks. Go figure.

Imagine that, a domain with nothing on it goes for 10k and a website with content and views goes for just 1k 😳😳😳 I guess it depends on the demand for the domain

GoDaddy is giving you the price for the domain name, not the whole website. Alice's Garden dot com or close could very well go for 10K

I have a friend that used to do that, and he made cash, however the domains that he was selling have been up for a while.

Is that called Cyber Squatting?

Not exactly, it's more like being a cyber real estate salesman.

Actually, yes it is called Cyber Squatting no matter how much you dress it up. Its still a possible way of making money, though.
