Hi, I am not a game developer but recently I got a pretty good (simple and straight-forward) domain name that can be used for game players/buyers. Anyone knows any low-invested web-sites that are making money by hosting games, user forums or any others game-related services? I want to take some reference, to see if there is any chance for me to make use of this domain name to earn money. Thanks! Martin Lam

Hi Sneftel,

I am not squatting. This name is a pretty nature top-level domain, but it is not a .com, nor a .net.

Sorry, I do not know what is "phat l3wt". Any typing mistake?

I do not want to just to sell a domain. I want to do something with it.

Well the domain name is not bad but so what, it is the quality of the service you offer that will make money, not the domain name. Just running a forum isn't going to earn you anything. To attract serious numbers of people and make money you will need to provide a great service. That will require investment in content and marketing. The alternative is to make a small hobby site and build up slowly but that wont make money until you have built up a good user base.

games.church?

If there ever becomes a .church TLD, that would have to be the ultimate online arcade site. Otherwise I would have to track down the owners and beat them with a bag filled with turnips until they surrender to my greatness.

games.st actually sounds pretty neat, but to make decent use of it, one would need not only cash, but someone with an MBA (and someone else with a cat-o-nine-tails to keep suit boy from screwing around too much).
