I'll admit, sometimes I spend way too much time surfing for available
domain names. It becomes somewhat of a game. Although even when I find
an interesting one, I don't always want to go through the process of
buying and then trying to sell it. Other times, I have a good idea for
a project or business but can't seem to find the right domain name for
both issues. First, you can create an account, describe your business
or potential business and then wait for suggestions from other users. A
$50 deposit is required - if you pick one of the suggested domain names
you pay $50. If you don't pick any of them, you get your money back.
the fun part. You can sign up to be a contributor. Browse people's
needs and make suggestions of available domains. You don't need to
check for availability, PickyDomains will do that for you. But it might
save everyone time if you check it out first. If yours is picked, you
get paid $25 via PayPal. PickyDomains keeps track of your suggested
domains, how many have been reviewed and how many have been chosen. So
it appears that my domain surfing habits could prove to be profitable.
There is one question I don't see addressed on the website: What prevents someone from registering a domain on their own if they see one they like, and avoid paying the fee? I've posed the question to the PickyDomains people and await their response.
