Domain branding is also a process of choosing an expired domain name with a view to market it to the highest bidder.

The most famous expired domain names (in some cases, even the live ones) in the world are those names that signify and represent a particular theme or a subject. Many of the most popular names possess a number of significant qualities and attributes like:
