There are a few companies in the domain name industry that provide financial services.
One of them, Domain Capital, provides financing so you can buy premium domain names with only a fraction of the capital required to make the purchase – as long as you can service the loan.
Domain Capital can also provide cash based on the value of your portfolio to grow your business.
Listen in to learn how these “hard money” types of loans are structured, including over what period and at what annual percentage rate; how a borrower’s credit worthiness factors in; what happens if you default; and what types of domain names can be financed.

It’s rumored but not confirmed that today’s Sherpa sold a five letter, dictionary word domain name that has hundreds of thousands of exact match searches per month, and thousands of companies use this word in their name…but nobody’s been able to confirm the sale or the price.
The domain? Ocean.com.

Think you can only make money in domain name investing if you got into the industry 5, 10 or 20 years ago? Think again.
Today’s guest entered the industry about a year ago and earned enough profit in that time for a down payment on his lakefront home (where he spoke with me for this interview). And he still owns 189 LLLL .com domain names.
But this is no “get-rich-quick scheme.” To the contrary, his first flip was $15 to $45. He then repeated that process more than 100 times as the market increased.
