There are many people/companies that are looking for a specific name for their website or business and they are willing to pay the price for the right name. So, if you put your domain name for sale on a website with domain auctions like or, customers will bid on your domain name and bids can be from a couple of dollars to several millions for rare ones. This can be very profitable.

2. Parking your domain names with advertisements on them:

You can always park your domain name on the service of your choice par changing the name server from at your registrar. Some service allow you to choose some keywords that are related to the topic of your domain name so that they will be able to generate related advertisements.
The generated ads are usually PPC ads (pay per click). You will get paid when people will clickk on those ads. So if your domain name is a good generic domain name or a domain name with a lot of type in traffic you can generate a good revenue by parking it with advertisements.
