Killer Domains: My First eBook is Available Now

Daniel Scocco

My first ebook is getting launched today. It is titled “Killer Domains: Tools & Techniques to Find the Perfect Domain Name.”

If you tried to find some good domain names lately you know how disappointing the experience can be. It feels like all the marketable domains are already gone. And the problem is that the success of your website starts with the domain name.

If you use a structured research process with efficient tools and techniques, however, I am sure that you will be able to find dozens of good domains that are still available, or to find registered domains for sale that will represent an excellent investment.

Here is the table of contents:

  1. Introduction
  2. The 7 Characteristics of Good Domain Names
  3. The Process of Researching Domain Names
  4. Keyword Research
  5. Prefixes and Suffixes
  6. Tools and Resources
  7. Registering and Managing Domain Names

The ebook has 55 pages, 30 of them for the content and 25 with the huge list of prefixes and suffixes (over 400). There is also a link included where you can download an Excel spreadsheet with the prefixes and suffixes to work with them more efficiently.

My experience with domain names

I started developing projects on the Internet more than three years ago, and on that time frame I needed to research and buy dozens of domain names. On the beginning I was not so sure about what I was doing, hence why some of my domains are not that good (DailyBlogTips.com, for instance, has 3 words and is quite long).

Over the time I learned some tricks and became familiar with the best tools around, so the quality of my domains improved as a consequence. Today I have a good portfolio of domains, probably worth over $20,000.

Some of the latest additions to that portfolio are TechCult.com, DailyBits.com and Freaked.com.

Money back guarantee

I am pretty sure that the ebook will be worth the $17 for the buyers. A good two-word domain name sells easily for $100, so even if you manage to find just one domain using the tools and techniques described you already recovered the money. If you end up finding a cool domain for your new website or blog, the ebook will probably be even more valuable to you.

That being said, if after reading and trying to use the described methods you arrive to the conclusion that this is not what you were looking for, just shoot me an email and I will refund your money.

Update: The eBook has been removed from the market because I will be using the information that it contained inside a larger project.

    Great to finally see your ebook live! Congratulations..

  • Daniel Scocco

    I hired a designer to do it.

  • GolfSpy X

    Where do you get the graphics to make the book cover for the E-Book?

  • Daniel Scocco

    You know you can pay with any credit card and you dont even need to have a paypal account though right?

  • Fern

    Fern, sorry but right now only Paypal is available.

    Well, that is too bad. I guess I can’t buy your book then. 🙁

  • Glen Allsopp

    Nice one daniel, I hope all the hard work pays you a tidy sum 🙂

  • Daniel Scocco

    Fern, sorry but right now only Paypal is available.

  • Fern

    Is there a way to purchase the book without using PayPal? I am boycotting them because of their unethical business practices. I have a Google Checkout account…or I could go old school and send you a bank check?

  • Bill

    Sssshhhh! Don’t let all the secrets out. It’s already hard enough to find domains with good commercial potential.

    Seriously though, good luck with the ebook. I’ve always enjoyed visiting your site.

    Congratulations Daniel! I’ll buy it for sure (as soon as I can fund PayPal with some sales of mine. 🙂 (not to worry, just visit me if you are a fiction writer or journalist) … It is a puzzle, matter of names – names matter! Good luck, though I’m certain it will go out well – it is a killer title of a book!

    Congrats on the launch of ebook Daniel. I might buy it soon.

  • Daniel Scocco

    Same comment I left on Problogger:

    Rex, I would say so.

    Especially if you are in the game to make money. Most effective monetization strategies work almost exclusively with people visiting your website.

    Social traffic is hard to be monetized, and the same is true for RSS readers.

    That is why having a good domain is essential.

    I don’t have the data (will look around) but I think we all would be surprised to see the percentage of visitors that still just memorize domain names and type them around.

  • Rex – Shopzilla

    This might be an interesting topic of conversation: Nowadays, with rise of social bookmarking and rss readers and the like, is the domain name really such a high priority? (p.s. I posed this same question on ProBlogger. Interested to see what peeps think.)

  • Daniel Scocco

    @Siddharth, exactly. The problem is to find them.

  • Siddharth

    Congrats on launch of your first ebook Daniel, way to go buddy. I think that a small and easy to remember domain is the key to success. If your shop has a hard address to get may be you can loose a bunch of customers, so a good and easy domain is sure the first step of online success.

  • Daniel Scocco

    @Jeremy, a designer that works with me did that.

    @boostranks, I thought internet marketing folks liked 9’s :).

  • boostranks

    is it just me, or do internet marketing folks like 7’s?

    $7
    $17
    $27
    $37
    $47

    what’s the psychology behind it?

    • Vince

      Hahaha… you should be reading Make Your Price Sell…:) It has a psychological impact to a person where he sees it to be a LOT cheaper than $18 or $19 or $20.

  • Jeremy

    Hey Daniel, I’m going to have to get this. I better check paypal, but I had a quick question. How did you make your image for the ebook? Was it by hand, or photoshop action, or script? If you wouldn’t mind sharing, I think its great.

  • Jummy

    Congratulations, Daniel! I always like reading your site and wish you all the best with sales of this e-book!

  • Daniel Scocco

    Thanks for the nice words Steve!

  • Steve Imparl

    Way to go, Daniel! I, too, have purchased the book and mentioned it on my law firm site/blog.

    It looks great. Best wishes for much success with it. I know it will be huge.

  • Richard

    Talking about coincidence …

    Tonight I am sitting together with my partner to decide on the name of our new website and we both had to come up with 50 names, after 5 minutes with your book I found another 6.

    THANKS!!!

    Richard

  • Daniel Scocco

  • Richard

    you can delete my last remark, I had an issue with Outlook! Email just came in.

    Looking forward to reading the book

    Richard

    Best of luck with it, Daniel, and thanks again for giving me a sneak preview.

    I’ve published a blog post about your ebook, as I’m sure a few of my readers will find it of use.

  • Mohsin

    Great! As a budding domainer, I’d love to read your ebook for some inside scoop on domaining.

    Though, if you could provide a sample chapter to give us a feel of what’s inside, that’d be ultra cool.

  • Buny

    Bought it! Daniel
