What does Flip An Icon actually mean and how did this name came about?
. . . .
Flip An Icon originated on two definitions namely: “domain flipping” & “icon”.
The definition of "domain flipping" is: “The process of purchasing a domain name with the intent of quickly selling it at a significantly higher cost.”
This is similar to house flipping, where a home is purchased and fixed up in order to sell for a quick profit. Unlike house flipping however, there is essentially nothing to be done with the domain name in order to increase its value.
For that reason you will read on most of the Flip An Icon landing pages that “premium domain names appreciate in value over time”.
This is no understatement and while it greatly depends on the domain name itself, one’s perception, business model and/or use case, in essence this is true.
Do not let the term "quick" fool you though! We do not recommend hasty decisions and do not assume that the name you are interested in today to be sold in the next couple of days or weeks. But we can of course not guarantee this. However, do keep in mind that domain names will go up in value over time and so will the sale prices.
This now brings us to the next definition; “icon”
Why "icon" you may wonder, because normally you would not associate a domain name with an icon.
Maybe not at first glance and again it comes down to perception. What could be considered an iconic name for one person may be the opposite for someone else. But the fact is that you could make it become an icon and even your iconic brand!
The first definition of icon is; “A very famous person or thing considered as representing a set of beliefs or a way of life.”
The second definition that is also commonly known is; “A small picture or symbol on a computer screen that you point to and click or tab on to give the computer an instruction.”
Or even better; “a sign (such as a word or graphic symbol) whose form suggests its meaning”
While the first definition is what Flip An Icon primarily refers to namely; A very potentially famous domain name considered as representing a set of beliefs, a way of life or a new business.
You can see how the other two definitions closely relate to a digital asset(domain name) and how the domain name is the “sign” (word or words). When you add a logo you would have your (graphic symbol) that will suggest its meaning.
Now that you understand the meaning of Flip An Icon,
I highly recommend that you take a closer look at the available domain names either in our marketplace

And don’t forget to take a closer look at our logo where you will see two forward slashes // that every domain name on the internet consists of.
