    I am new to this also, but have some 2000 domains. I bought them for an Australian project, but never got it properly of the ground. Anyone interested in learning more about it?

    Greetings

    Chris

    Hi James
    It was a business decision that in retrospect was a little too daring for me. I know not much more about IT past Office :) I am more of an entrepeneur. In answer to your question, they are just "there" some are parked but most are incorporated in the project and don't do much. Wether they attract traffic I don't really know either. I am trying to find solutions, so would be happoy to talk to anyone who has the ability and time to do serious work. But it would probably be a lot easier to do so by email and make more sense. chris@meyer-c.com would reach me.

    Hi Chris - welcome to DNT. Where are you based?

    Bet you're not looking forward to renewal date on those 2000 domains. ;)

    Hi Ned
    I live in Coffs Harbour in NSW. I have renewed these domains for several years now and will so for now, but yes it would be good if I found a better solution thaen just "having" them :)

    G'Day Chris, welcome to the forums. I love Coffs Harbour! Haven't been for around 5 years, but nothing beats a nice banana split at everyone's favourite landmark ;)

    Hi Scott and thank you for the welcome. If you or anyone that you know might be interested in some sort of a venture, don't hesitate to let me know. This goes for anyone else who reads this also of course. Cheers

    Hey Chris!

    Welcome!!

    A starting point might be to share what vertical your domains are in. Few of the more experienced players might be able to help you better that way.

    Another option could be to monetize them by parking with some where like RookMedia. Then slowly develop them by best domain/best performing domain.

    All the best and would love to hear your progress!

    Ben

    Welcome to the forum Chris; I'm new to this forum as well - they seem to be a friendly bunch! :)

    2000 domain names is definitely a good start ;)

    Hi Ben

    What I did and have is a bit long for a forum. But it is no secret of course and I am happy to send you details to an email address, but no parking them is no answer for me...in addition to the 2000 mentioned earlier I a bunch more that are parked and some that are developed too. Cheers Chris

    You're best solution is likely to be trying to sell whatever you can dirt cheap then drop everything that is not sold (likely almost all of them).

    2000 domains is a massive mistake, the only bigger mistake is renewing. Saw your other thread but thought it would be be more appropriate to post here, would not spend time trying to get partners or do anything fancy with them. Nobody with real experience is going to get involved with that. Think of them as a sunk cost and an educational experience is my opinion.

    Hi snoopy
    Unless I have spoken to you before and you know what it is all about, I'd say your view is at the very least uninformed. But thanks anyway. Chris

    Chris,

    If you have 2000 domains that you went and registered and now have no plans for (other than hopefully someone else doing the work for you), then that is a massive mistake. You've given out enough information to see the obvious.

    The biggest mistake you can make now is to keep going down the same path by spending more on renewals.

    Snoopy..."we investigate, you save" wouldn't ring very familiar to you by any chance? Regards Chris

    Explains everything?

    So is it a yellow pages knock off website for mobiles?

    And you want to build 2,000 consumer sites made for mobiles so you can sell advertising?

    No that was not it at all. Unless of course you see any site advertising a business as a knock off of the yellow pages. But rather than writing long explanations here, contact me on chris@meyer-c.com if you are genuinely interested.
