Domain Name Trading

Trading for fun, not profit

Domain names are cheap. So cheap that squatters will put together any words that make sense (or don't) and sit on the dot-com.

Creative people are getting the picture. Many people I know have started buying fun domain names without any specific intentions, just to reserve the name in case a project comes up that needs it.

So I propose a domain trading website where people can post their "haves". If you see something you like, propose a trade. Tell the current owner about the project you have in mind. Offer up some domains of your own, or recognition on the website-to-be. To protect the spirit of the site, monetary transactions are banned.

Paradoxically, I need to find someone with the perfect domain to bake this.

       [calculust], good stuff, and I wish you well in your baking, but most people visiting your site won't have any idea what it is for. Maybe a description page would help?   

       (I'll be adding a domain or two later)
