Could you clarify the meaning of project domain and sales domain and how they differ?

In my understanding, a project domain pertains to the specific area of expertise or field that a project is focused on. On the other hand, a sales domain refers to the market or industry that a company's products or services are targeted towards.

Regarding your domain name registration, 5gid_com, it could potentially fall under either category depending on the context. However, it's important to consider the availability of similar domain names and potential branding implications before registering a domain.


Domainers created these conventions to avoid offending others.

A project domain is a name that, in the opinion of most people, is not valuable and unlikely to attract high bids. To avoid labeling such domains unsuitable, they are described as "project domains," implying that they have potential for use in a specific project, similar to the example of "" at the launch of Facebook. While this may be true, it does not necessarily mean that the domain cannot be sold; sometimes a buyer's idea could align with the domain and lead to a purchase.

On the other hand, the sale domain name, as you called it, is not just interesting to those looking to use it for a specific project, but also for resellers and a wider audience. These domains are theoretically more in demand and could potentially fetch higher prices.

It's important to note that the value of a domain name is subjective and can vary greatly based on different factors such as market trends, branding potential, and SEO optimization. As with any investment, thorough research and analysis are crucial in making informed decisions regarding domain name acquisition and sales.


I believe the domain name is intended for a specific project, such as building a website and generating revenue from it.

In contrast, a sales domain name is acquired purely for the purpose of reselling it for a profit, i.e. profiting from the difference between the buying and selling prices of the domain.

It's worth noting that both types of domains can potentially be profitable, but the strategy and approach to acquiring and utilizing them may differ. While a project domain may require more time and effort to develop and generate income, it could also have long-term value and potential for growth. On the other hand, a sales domain may provide a quicker return on investment but may also carry more risk and require strategic timing for optimal selling opportunities. Ultimately, the decision to invest in a domain name should be based on careful consideration of various factors, including current market trends, branding potential, and potential revenue streams.
