Domain’s are Not Babies, Don’t Renew them Because You Like Them

When most of us domainers began in the business we ran and registered and bought every name we could. Many of these names were not great, and most were worth less the reg fee. Speaking for myself I have many names that I have let drop because they were bad names.

My point in this article is to make sure you are not holding onto the names you registered first just because you like them. Your first domains are not a first born son, they are simply just domains and if they are bad let them drop. In the long run you will save yourself time and money.

If you have any good or bad first names please share them below!

    Just like everyone else I registered some bad domains which I am letting expire. Some of those domains include iStreetRacingVideos.com,CitizenHerald.net, CitizensDaily.net,
    CitizenDailyNews.com
    CitizenDailyNews.net. I registered the citizen domains after reading a report on how much CNN paid for iReport.com. Now I hand register domains and buy in the domain aftermarket. My latest domain is ManagedHostingCompanies.com. Managed Hosting has a high cpc of $30+

    Some of my first names are:

    FileDash.com – File Host
    lolrific.com – Joke Site
    GhostThe.Net – Proxy

    FileDash is my baby, I don’t think I’ll ever drop her.

    I just blogged about $700 worth of renewals I’m dropping. Many were ‘children’ registered in my first year. But I’m having second thoughts and have already rescued one orphan!

    I would whole heartedly support keeping all the domains you like regardless of their past income prodution. Renewal is a small price to pay for a name you like. Your tastes will evolve and if you don’t like it next year, don’t renew. You will ALWAYS regret not keeping a name you like. Keep on Regging!

    I agree with Chip, I own some pretty old domains in my portfolio (regged in 2000) and still like them very much, it’s very unlikely I will let them expire.
