    I had this esca.pe domain from my pre-bhw era. The little guy is $35 a year and I am not doing much with it.

    I got it cause I thought it would be a cool name for a travel agency or for a clubbing scene site, but the truth is I'm not doing anything with it, so I'm about to drop it.

    What do you think? Should I keep it? What would you do with it?

    Why does the domain cost $35 a year?

    @IntensE, that's exactly how I feel. I love the domain, but have no clue what to do with it. I didn't think about selling it... just to let it expire. I will research a bit on how to sell domains.

    @blazen, that is the price for peruvian top level domains, which I hate cause after joining BHW, I have about 20 domains, which adds up to the tab.

    Hint: Get someone to write a travel blog for you (believe me, many people will do that for free).

    Can you see how to monetize it now? :D

    good names arn't a "cost", they are an investment that can produce better returns then any stock.

    I kick myself everyday over some names i let drop 10 years ago

    @IntensE selling domains in this forum is not allowed... I was only asking what to do with it.

    @LadRak a free writer? That would be cool! Like a backpacker/student with lots of free time? While I find one I can probably buy a few articles from the writers here.

    @blackhatmaster and MegalomaniacMidget thanks for your optimism, but it sounds a bit of a stretch to me. There are domains like car.pe selling for as little as $400 at Sedo. I doubt esca.pe can sell for more than that. Still, it is a ten times earning, so I might give that a try.

    @tsanko yes, anyone can buy a Peruvian domain. There are tons of one-word domains available, specially in English. How do you like workout.pe or exercise.pe? Both available as of today at:

    Code:
    https://www.punto.pe/nic_reg_registrar_dominios.php
    @MegalomaniacMidget would you buy and hold domains? I agree this kind of names could be valuable in 10 years or so... it would be great if the domains earned their registration fees each year.
