A domaineer is one who engages in domaineering which is the web-based marketing business of acquiring generic Internet domain names for the purpose of monetizing them through their use primarily as an advertising medium. In essence, the domain names function as virtual Internet billboards with generic domains being highly valued for their revenue generating potential derived by attracting natural Internet traffic hits from organic search engine results. As with traditional advertising, domaineering is part art and part science. Often to be the most effective as advertising tools, keyword rich domain names and their corresponding landing pages must be engineered or optimized to produce maximum revenue which require a domaineer to have considerable knowledge of search engine optimization ( SEO ) practices, marketing psychology and an understanding of the target market audience.
Domaineers generally utilize a firm offering domain parking services to provide the sponsored "feed" of a word or phrase searched for thus creating a mini-directory populated largely by advertisers paying to promote their products and services under a relevant generic keyword domain. Occasionally content is added to develop a functional mini-website.

Domaining is the web-based marketing business of acquiring non-trademarked Internet domain names as intellectual property investments primarily for resale. In domaining, domain parking is optional and any advertising revenue gained would be considered a bonus while awaiting the sale of a domain.
Domaining, aka "flipping domains", is occasionally confused with domaineering which involves acquiring with the intent to monetize non-trademarked Internet domain names for their use primarily as an advertising medium like virtual Internet billboards with generic domain names being highly valued for their revenue generating potential derived from attracting Internet traffic hits.

Domaineers and some of those who advertise online using keywords believe domaineering provides a useful, legal and legitimate Internet marketing service while opponents of domaineering decry the practice as increasing the ubiquitous commercialization of the world wide web.
