How many domains do you own?

39 replies
When EMDs were easily rankable I had around 40-60. Since those days I now am focusing on having main sites with plenty of content, I now have about 15-20.
I use to make a site most weeks and just leave it. How many do you have?

    I have around 60, most of them are of 4 letters, I have kept them for selling at higher price, now price of LLLL.com is not too good so it is better to hold them for few years more.

    Around 20 and I have let some go and will let others go this year. I find it difficult to keep up with so many so don't know how others manage unless they are out sourcing.

    I have over 100 but more than half are parked waiting for me to do something with them. I was going to drop a lot of them last year but they are on auto-renew and I didn't get around to changing that. I plan to drop most of the parked ones this time around.

      Why not sell the ones you do not want, bundle them up 10 at a time or what some people do is list the domains and say "first person to PM with a decent offer gets the domain, please PM the domain(s) you want with a price and your email, all transactions via paypal"

      PM me a list, I might take a few off your hands (if they are not crap).

    I'll have less than 15 when they all expire in the next few months.

    around 70 of my own, probably 30 that I actively work on in the space of 7 to 10 days. the other 40 receive some attention over the course of a month. I also have about 150 client websites hosted on my server too.

    i only have 4 right now. I let one expire as I was not doing anything with it. I may also drop another one in the near future. But this will open up room for me to work on what I already have, and also money to register new ones as needed.

    Getting domain names is like an addicition.... You get excited when you think of the possibilities of the new domain name, but quickly it just gets added to the collection on the wall....

    I have about 16... I try not to go domain buying too often without turning them into something. =)

    We used to have 120 built up over the years but only ever concentrated on 10 to 15 maximum.
    We have been dumping domains for the last few years and we are now down to 35.

    I know people that have so many domains, they've forgotten them. (thousands)

    I also know of others that have 1 or 2, and they make anywhere between $800 to $1,000 a day

    Having a lot of domains is wank factor.

    More domains doesn't mean more money. It just means more expenses, and more headaches.

      I owned around 35 for reselling purposes but in the past 6 months I have been gradually letting the deadwood expire. Just hope I don't see any of my expired domains selling for a significant sum (that would kill me)

      Know what you mean here...at one time we tried to manage several hundred domains and it was just more work, not necessary more profit. Over time, a lot of domains just slipped away.

      I would recommend starting with just 10 domains and working out a good system.

      I own close to 400 domains and niche sites and I have sold them off in the last couple of years. The profit is simply amazing.

    I have around 30 domains and almost half of it is .com domain and the other half is country domain . Still looking for sell it with better price or meet potential buyer with the keywords in domain .

    EDM just bring the value of domain down , might think of sell it together with site content and make some easy SEO.

    Right now we have about 160. Have owned up to about 430 at any one time.

    We use domains in a variety of ways. To brand a product or service, to get keyword relevancy in SEO. To force traffic to certain sites. And we create domains that have good value for potential projects and sell them off. So far our best domain sale price is up to $4,500 for a single domain. Most of the ones we've sold have been between $75 and $350.

    Domains can be a lucrative source of income if you can get creative in how you sell them.
