    How many domains do you own?

    Well I won't post a poll because I'm sure there's a vast difference in the amount of domains owned by people on here.

    I own around 20-25 domains and actively use about 10 (but have plans for the rest ). I had a bad addiction before though and owned close to 150.

    Hi, I own 18 domains, but use only 1, it's a pretty poor ratio, but I lack some development time. Perhaps it is to improve in the future. Nevertheless, an inactive domain is more a cost than anything else, so it's normally hard to maintain 150 of them, that's really a lot. 150 x $8 is $1200 per year and it was like $2500 two years before. Huh.

    I own 12, I think 5 are in use right now, but I hope they are all going to be active within the next 3-4 months. I like to work fast through projects.

    Ya, but the way I always looked at it was that a domain was a risky investment. On most of the names I atleast doubled my money or broke even when it came to selling them. I only let 3 domains expire and all because of forgetting to renew. I also had/have a idea for all of my domains and thus I registered/bought each particular name thinking that I would love to develope it, never got the time for a long while.

    Edit:
    As for the motivation/time to get things developed I know what you mean. I just kept pushing my self though and finally got some of them used and sold off a bunch.

    Man! Some people LOVE domains.

    I own three and two are in service.

    But I'll get more eventually. Peer Pressure!!!

    I only own about 5 or 6 right now. I used to have a lot more, but I sold them all off when I didn't have time to maintain them all.

    Have around 40 right now but I'm selling most of them. Probably keep 10 that I like most.

    You're right, very hard to maintain many domains.

    Regards.

    Maybe put some up for sale in the Domain offers and requests, who knows, I might be interesting in something.
