Cleaning Out Domain Junk & Renewing Domain Names

Jun 20th

I recently chatted with a friend about domain names. I ended up deleting about a dozen of my domains. I could probably delete another 50 to 80 more and still be fine. It is almost like an addiction buying those things, and they are so hard to let go.

I also renewed some of my domains for many years, which I think is probably a good call, especially since search engines may look at a longer domain registration as a greater commitment and reward it with a greater level of trust. Ever so slightly higher rankings can land a few more customers, and just one good one pays for a decade of domain registration.

Have you renewed your registrations on your best sites and do you find it hard to let go of a domain name?

I've got 150 domains and yeah I find it hard to let go also. If you don't want to hold on to them but think they still have value, resell them at places like namepros.com or dnforum.com.
