Home / Domain Registration / What can I do with my domain name if I donot want to set up a website ?

Registering a domain name does not automatically activate a website that displays when visitors enter your domain name into a Web browser. The domain name must have a hosted website that includes a numeric address, called an IP address, for visitors to access the website using your domain name.

Besides setting up a website, there are a number of things you can do with your domain name once you register it.

  • Sell it — Domain names can be a great investment. If you have registered a domain name that you are not using, maybe someone else can. You can set up a For Sale parked page to let visitors know that it’s available — and don’t forget to include your contact information. See Auctions FAQ for more information. There is a lot of domain name broker such as sedo and godaddy. You can sell your domain name in those kinds of domain brokers. You can find the top domain selling prices at the bottom of the page. One good domain can value dozens of million dollars.
  • Protect your brand online — The more domain names you register, the better. Prevent others from registering a similar domain name to yours. These similar domain names can steal your customers or confuse them. What can you do with all these domain names? Forward them to your main domain name’s website. See Manually Forwarding or Masking Your Domain Name for more information.
  • Hold on to it — Maybe you haven’t decided what to do with your new domain name. Don’t worry — there’s no rush. You can leave it parked with us for the length of your registration. You can hold your .com domain name. It will be more and more expensive. One single NNN.com domain value hundreds of thousands dollars now.
