    I'm curious to know what you do with extra domain names you have.


    I just renewed quite a few and thought I'd ask.

    Ones I care most about get renewed for years, the others I just let die out.

    I watch them die and wonder why I ever bought them :cry:

    Heh, but no, I just let them go if I'm not using them.

    Thanks Nick.

    I have quite a few coming up in the next 6 months or so. I'm thinking the same thing. A few that I just renewed I'm thinking about selling or letting them expire next year.

    I've never really gotten into buying up domains that seem cool or worth it. I only buy 'em if I'm sure I'll be developing a website with it/them. As such, I never really have "extra" domains. :)

    Same here, have tried selling them but it's almost impossible, not even less than what I bought them for. This usually happens with domains that are for communities or guild/clan related websites. I now only buy ones that I know I'll be using for a while.

    Thanks guys, I bought mine with the intention of using them. One I still want to use. It's perfect for what I want to do with it. Just been to busy to devote to the one project yet. The others I'll probably let die a slow death if I don't use in the next year or so.

    My problems always been I have to many projects running around and not enough time to devote to each to make it into the vision I have.

    Isn't that the truth!

    I have so many domains that I have every intention of using, but I just keep getting drawn into real-life timestealers.

    I see them listed on my account page with my domain name registrar every now and then, and feel guilty that I haven't worked on them yet.
