    Domain with drops, what does it mean?
    Is it the domain is not renewed by the owner?
    I have dropped many domains earlier, but never found them with drops on the whois record search.

    Have few EMDs .coms with more than 3k searches per month with drops on the whois record page.
    I am kind of in dilemma to renew them. Need some help here.
    Is it worth renewing or not?

    Yeah, that domain not renewed by owner and after 45 days that domain will deleted from registrar. After that someone will register newly.

    If you able to promote them you can renew them.. If you unable to promote them, Just leave them.

    Or Just register and sell to any one with some profit if domain name is worth.

    I hope this correct.. Sorry for my English..

    Thanks

    It means that they were dropped by their previous owners.. Someone in the history of that domain registered and let it expire, 3x times since it says 3 drops.. This may have happened for different reasons.. Lack of money, somebody just forgot.. Many things can happen.

    If i were you i would just look at exact monthly searches and not having any TMs in your domain, those are the two most important things!

    Most important is, are you able to provide value to the new domain? Being drop means nothing if there is still search coming in
