So, I have registered a few more domain names than I really need. The domain names are usually a result of this:
- I get a good (or bad) idea for a web site project
- I think of good (and bad) domain names for the project
- I register a domain name for the web site
- But, because I already have work, family and a whole bunch of existing projects to attend to, I never get very far with implementing the web site
Then, a year later, the domain name needs to be renewed. One possible action:
A slight hope of continuing the project and some squirreling tendencies makes me renew the domain registration.
Another possible action:
Let the domain name registration expire.
But it does not feel good at all:
No! Not one of my domain names! They are part of the family! If I let them expire they will be bought by someone running a parked domain monetization scheme!
I actually counted to three domains of mine that will expire during the months to come. And then there are a couple of domain names I want to register if they become available… Letting Go Is Never Easy!
Btw, have you tried my Google Apps™ Test service? It checks if a domain name is connected to Google Apps, the Google Apps mail service, Google Sites or Blogger.
