    Hey,


    I'm currently holding 14 domains, but only 4 of them are actual websites with some value. The domains are all at least 2 years old.

    What's the most beneficial thing I can do with the other 10 of my domains, because they are just sitting there doing nothing ?


    Regards,

    Rudes

    If the domains aren't very good or you're not going to develop them, just let them expire. I had this issue last year. I let about 200 domains expire because it was a waste of money. I still keep about 20 that I use for developing websites and I generally keep them because they are good domain names and one day I will use them.

    Domains are something you tend to accrue once you get started with IM. I'd be shocked if most of the long-term members haven't got 20 or 30 domains sitting across various registrars.

    if keeping them registered is costing too much, sell them off - otherwise, I'd go with keytenx's suggestion.

    I pay for 20-30 domains and don't do anything with them. It's a waste of money but every one of them had a brilliant idea that I never followed through with. w00t

    You can try domain parking, but I wouldn't expect much. If the domains still have time on them, give it a shot. Then whatever isn't making money, let expire. I stopped parking domains many years ago because most weren't worth the trouble.

    I like to delete domains if i'm not going to do anything with them.
    It gives you a sense of cleanliness, and doesn't leave any thoughts of "one day i will...." when you really know you never will.

    I usually put them on GD Auctions or Sedo for those with any value, or those I don't want to let expire or never got around to developing.. If someone makes me a good enough offer, then all good, otherwise I renew and will get around to developing eventually

    The way I assuage the income hit is keep $50 in paypal at all times. Once I get an auto-payment for a domain, I leave $1-$5 from each of my revenue payments in paypal until it reaches $50.

    let them rot, i generally use them for blackhat methods so i don't have to worry about getting them banned or anything.

    If they have some value, sell them on e.g. namepros.com or just let them expire.

    as above, use them to test services from here & analyze the links you get with GWMT & majestic. Learn how to replicate those links and your old domains and will pay for themselves many times over.

    or just let them drop - it does feel good sometimes to let go of an old domain.
