    New to dntrade (obviously). Have about 150 odd domain names. I have finally come to terms that I should let go of my duds which I have. I have sold 3 domains over the last few years all for $2,500 (weird, why that number?). I've had 2 good offers on others that I let go and now regret. Oh well. Here to add my 2 cents and get thoughts from some seasoned domainers.

    Hi topflight
    Did you develop any of the names?
    How many of the 150 are .com ?
    Do you live in Melbourne?

    Melbourne based. No .com names in the list. Always thought I was too late to the party for .com.
    I think I have some decent .com.au names though. To many side businesses to worry about developing names, although that said I actually have 2 being developed by others. They are my 2016 New Years resolution coming to fruition.

    Where do you .com.au resolve?
    The .com party continues although not to Reg
    Rosales are strong, not flipping
    An active dntrade ® member will sell you wrestling dot com for the price of a top first class flight

    Honan, I'm not quite getting all the lingo. :)
    Where do you com.au resolve? Not sure what that means to be honest.
    Rosales are strong? Um ...
    First class flight line? Wow, maybe I'm just showing my age but looking for some guidance here.

    *your not you
    My hunt and pick typing could be improved
    Do all your domains have a web page of some sort?
    Some of the dntrade ® members that I have met do not look a day over 85

    Yeah, the way I see it is that the $7,500 I've had off the 3 sales pays for about 10% of the crappy domains I've registered over the years. Some people learn the hard way.

    Got to be brutal about what you drop I'd say. It might mean dropping 90%.
