My aquisition of domain names is driven by the data revealed in the MLS data and charted in the Market in a minute reports. When I see a community meeting the profile about to exceed 8% mobility, I start getting my pieces in the right position. A domian that aligns with the community plus a message of relevance can easily get 30% click throughs.

@Debbie Gartner , you would be well advised to create an Identity seperate from your existing business. I would suggest curating the great ideas you have shared with so many, and many I'm sure we have no knowledge of, and consider starting a brand. One such accidental super star is Pot Pie Girl. You have what it takes. You have demonstrated you can create a loyal following. Put big G to work and find that girl.

I fully own 3.  I have another website that my franchise owns, but I "rent" at no charge.

I plan on buying another 1 or 2 and point them towards my main domain.

I had to log into my godaddy account to see - I have 90.  I'll always remember the first one I purchased, my last name, denton.org.  It was February 11, 2000, a Thursday night.  I attended an Internet Marketing course that evening, after work, and the Instructor taught us how to register domain names, via Network Solutions.  At that time Network Solutions was the only game in town, and the price was $35.00 per year, two year minimum.  For the past 15 years all my family members have had an email address that matches their first and last name.

William Feela some say ONE is the lonliest number, next to number two.

David Selman seems your domain count falls in like with the norm

Quiz: how many domains must you own to get 'bulk' rates from Godaddy?

Raymond Denton most certainly gets bulk rates with 90 in his existing inventory. Feb 11th, 2000, that is a great story.

Gary Branscombe good domain names are worth something. However, when they blasted away the controls on names, many find a .us or .guru or .natterhorn to be equally effective.

Praful Thakkar unlike so many things real estate folks buy, a domain name can have many lives.

Chuck Willman that's right, it is real property and can be leveraged. My total inventory was much greater than 29 just a few years ago.

Gabe Sanders Ron & Alexandra Seigel Ten, that's a nice round number. Keeps your engagement much more focused.

I have about 75 of them that are real estate related. Most of those are a holdover from my early days when I wasn't quite sure which direction I was going to go with my real estate business. I forward them to my two main sites. I may let some go over time, but for now I am hanging on to them.

I own a couple dozen. Some are for real estate. Some are to use or sell down the road. Yes- domain names are properties that can be transacted- so I keep a few in reserve.
