    I quickly searched the forum and could not find a thread about income from domaining and that was surprizing. So I am starting a thread.

    Let me know how much do you earn from domaining. This includes income from domain flipping, developing and parking.

    Please try to follow following format.

    Total Income/month in US$
    Domain flipping
    Domain development
    Domain parking

    This may serve as inspiration or distraction for some of us.

    thanks,

    Domain7

    I don't think this is something people like to talk about!

    You'll find the whole range of members here - some are just starting out while others make enough from domaining to live very comfortably.

    Earning a steady income just from domain flipping and parking for .in domains is difficult.

    Interesting question. I think you could get more response if the user who answers it remains anonymous.

    If there is enough interest, I can add in a poll.

    Jeff,

    I have already created a survey with a few Qs, link below. Hope all users will take a minute to answer it. Its fully anonymous. Let me know if I should add/ modify anything.

    Please take this survey -> Income from domaining

    I will leave the survey open till end of May(?) and then publish the results in this thread.

    Cheers.

    It is better to show current results of survey in a link at a bottom.

    Ross,

    Good idea, but "Basic" accounts do not have a feature to share responses. Please let me if know if there is a way to do it.

    Nice survey. Thanks for taking the initiative for setting this up!

    For #3, you should clarify the time period.

    Jeff,

    Thanks for your feedback. I changed the Q to enter the "earning in the last 1yr".

    Regards.

    Thanks everybody (5 domainers!) who took the survey. Please see the results in the attached. As this is a free account, I cannot download the survey, so I took screenshot and attached the results for the 5 questions I asked.
