domaining

Also called "domain name speculation," it refers to registering domain names and selling them for profit. One of the more notable transactions was the domain name wallstreet.com, which was registered in 1994 for USD $70 and sold for $1 million in 1999. Some people have registered every common name and name combination they can think of with the hopes of selling them later. Domaining was originally called "cybersquatting;" however, the latter term evolved into something else (see cybersquatting). See domain warehousing and domain parking.
