These are the numbers from my domain name portfolio. People were asking me at NamesCon how many domains I got and I was not exactly sure so I was replying “about 10,000”.
I am using 4 (5 if you count .gr domains) different registrars and a lot more for drop catching, auctions, etc., and I keep separate lists. I hadn’t add these all up for about 2 years now.
So I was curious too to find out how many domains I have and what the percentage of each TLD is. Here it is:
It seems that I have a few more .info than I need. But these are mostly 3 letter domains and 1 word domains like (buy.info, athens.info and portfolio.info). I am expecting for .info to go up in value. If it was a new gtld it would be one of the top 10.
So I don’t have “about 10,000” domains anymore. When I added these up I remembered that for more than a year (early 2014 through summer of 2015) I was pretty aggressive every month when selecting what domains to renew. I was dropping 10-15% of the domains every month.
Here are a few examples of the posts I wrote about my renewal rate and what domains I dropped:
