Time to update one of the greatest educational series about domaining: The magnificent Domain Name Jargon seriesa never-ending thesaurus of terms and trivia related to domaining.

The purpose of Name Jargon is to help (re)define domaining and to clarify misconceptions and eliminate abuse and vague definitions of domain industry terms.

Liquid Domains : The collective reference to domains that can presumably be liquidated as “coinage” during times of financial hardship of their owners.

Often in reference to short .com domains, liquid domains are supposedly easy to convert into hard cash, by pawning them at various domain auction venues, at any given moment.

The mentality behind the alleged ease of reselling “liquid domains” for profit, has led many domain investors to extend their domain portfolios, adding a good amount of ‘XQJ’ letters that are popular in China.

Liquid domains can easily break the bank by overpaying and underselling them; most inexperienced domain flippers can thus lose the shirt off their backs.

Example: “Dude, I bought a dozen numeric .CC domains a thousand a piece, and plan to sell them for thousands to the Chinese. These domains are definitely liquid!”
