    Are .pw and .cash essentially worthless?

    What is the difference (roughly) in value between .net and .com?

    How many domains does the average domainer own? (It's probably like asking how long is a piece of string, but it's something I'm very curious about).

    Never heard of .pw, but I'd say so for both. Cash has very limited appeal.

    Not sure there is a clear cut answer here.

    You've answered your own question. There are some old polls on the forum like this one:

    But numbers would be well down since Panda and Penguin updates I would've thought. Perhaps start a new one :)

    The school of thought is that a .net has 5% to 10% of the matching .com
    .pw is a cctld for Palau and .cash is a new gtld
    How many domaings? ....... as much as you're willing to speculate on? (the budget)

    the answer for most is " to many "

    i've talked to mannnnnyyyyy domainers face to face and almost all of them are reducing their amount and using the funds to purchase BETTER domains, we all start out buying rubbish, then build up to buying good, then realise the rubbish is dragging us down like a boat towing buckets on ropes.

    there you go, i just saved you 3 years of hell in learning !

    there are many levels of domainers: ( feel free to add some more )
    scoundrals, who bring the industry down
    get rich quick, but should just spend their money on a lotto ticket instead
    true investors, who use knowledge and research constantly
    idiots, people who don't read before they start purchasing.
    developers, who see a vacant block of land and create something on it
    passive incomes, people who know how to manage their portfolios and make money
    entrepreneurs, often they own just one domain and suck the hell out of it then SELL
    small/medium/large businesses ( SML ), that buy domains to protect their IP

    the SML have the cash over the counter to maintain their folios, its just chicken feed compared to what they spend on traditional media each year.

    so your answer is :

    its not how many you own......... its what you do with them !

    100% of zero = zero
