Like I have said in my past blog posts many moons ago and also in my book ‘Domain Power’, do not register purposely mis-spelt domain names. Firstly they have no value, they will not be ranked by Google and they serve no purpose to the end user as websites are searched for by readable keywords.
Furthermore if you do not have a website or landing page seo optimized ready for the end user to take over, what are you actually selling, what value can you add to the domain name.
I am shortly going to be changing my terms and will not longer accept mis-spelt domain names and onlyTLDs and ccTLDs. I believe that GTLDs other than .org .net .info .co will not be ranked by Google and the name of the game is to increase traffic to the said business, so how is Google going to know where to drive traffic to using a domain extension such as dot tv, dot photo etc? Perhaps a company from the UK for example on a small budget for pay per click advertising is not going to want traffic from Tuvalu if they were to register a domain name with .tv on the end of it . These type of ccTLDs have been reimagined in creative ways and dot tv is now commonly used for websites that feature video- or TV-style media and serve no purpose other than to the people of Tuvalu .
Here is a mis-spelt domain which I have been asked to list today: www.cardssystems.com
Remember Domain Brokers are not Miracle Workers. I suggest you read up on SEO to help you understand the fundamentals of how Domain Names and Keywords matter in driving traffic to a business.
As I have been saying until I am blue in the face, in order to create equity one needs to have a landing page that is generating traffic, not only it helps with marketing your domain name it is also going to help the prospective buyer.
View what ‘Rick Schwartz’ said himself on Namepros:

The word Neom is a Name of a planned cross-border city in the Tabuk Province of northwestern Saudi Arabia. It is planned to incorporate smart city technologies and also function as a tourist destination. The site is near the Red Sea and the borders that Saudi Arabia shares with Egypt and Jordan. With this said I have the following Neom related domain names for sale:
Firstly any bonafide web developer should have a contract between the client and themselves outling all their terms. If the client then defaults on his monthly payments then the web developer has the right to keep hold of the domain name untill payment is settled.
The web developer on the other hand should release the domain name when the contract is terminated otherwise he/she could face legal action.
It is all based on trust and it cannot be a verbal agreement (gentlemen’s agreement or hand shake) it has to be a written one signed by both parties. The developer may not trust the client or visa versa, so that it is why it is very important to have a contract in place and should the web developer get run over by a bus as in the ‘Domain Name Wire’ article the contract is evidence that the agreement is in place. I am sure if in case the web developer disappeared off the face off the earth this piece of paper could be used as evidence. One would have to prove that the web developer was not responsive i.e emails or snail mail letters. This could then be presented to the domain registrar for the application to transfer the domain name. I was actually in this situation once where the client refused to sign a contract, he defaulted and he ended up owing me money which he still has not paid me to this day. I actually wrote about it: https://ukdomainbrokers.ukwebsitedesigners.co.uk/2017/09/23/disgruntuled-ex-website-client/
Here is a ‘SAMPLE CONTRACT’ that you could use, feel free to download it and ammend it to your requirements.
To continue with the saga should you allow a web developer to register your domain name I will go into some scenarios and what you can do to get your domains back.
If a Web Devloper Refuses to Transfer
Providing you have not missed any payments and there are no disputes with the web developer you can enforce your contract and go to a solicitor. Sometimes a letter threatening legal action can suffice if the web developer is being difficult.
Your Web Developer Could Go Bust.
Providing you have a contract in place, you can in case it is the web devloper that goes into adminsistration go to the hosting company or go to nominent and show proof of admistration of a hosing provider/web developer and they will be able to sort it out for you.
Know who is the Hosting Company Provider.
If in the case that the web developer goes into administration, the web developer at the beginning of th contract should provide you with the hosting company details. This is part of GDPR and you have the right to know such information.
If you have any disputes with your website designer over the management of your website then you should sit down and discuss this with him or her.
If things have gone wrong to the point of no return.
You should first write a formal letter (not an email) to the web developer and give him her 14 days from the date of your letter to transfer the domain over to you otherwise you will take legal action. You can then contact your solicitor and show him your contract and the copy of the letter and any correspondence you may have from the web developer.
I know Nigeria and Ghana has a bad reputation for scammers and the amount of people I have spoken to today who claimed they were miners is unbelievable not only that they all call theselves Princes.
Anyway when I have do my due diligence, I have noticed they sometimes and I mean the legitimate ones do not have a professional email addresses or websites and its sometimes is hard to recognise the legitimate ones from the fakes.
I have no desire in helping these people as my only goal is the find a seller for my client.
If I was in their shoes and I wanted to show that I was legitimate I would create a digital footprint.
Because of what is involved my client and I insist on Due Diligence Forms to be filled out and my client requires everyone to register on this website www.cryptobankandtrust.co.uk
