    Updated the poll to offer "None" too. I have 2 myself .
    If you have to operate your company behind the scenes or under a fake name, maybe it's time to leave the industry and start something fresh.

    Thanks Mike. Somehow, I doubted the WHT crowd would possibly not own a single domain

    Thanks for the feedback so far; please only include your personal/company domains, not any that you manage for other parties.

    Yep personal and company only. Otherwise it would have been much more.

    Personally around 6-10 domains. I actually only use 1-2 of them and the rest are redirects back to the main site.

    I own two right now one for a portfolio and a game related site which actually gets a reasonable amount of hits even though it was setup in 10 minutes and we have stopped advertising it 2+ months ago.


    My question is, It seems a lot of you have multiple domains. How many of those do you actually use for sites, how many of those do you plan on creating sites off but keep delaying, and how many are for selling to others?

    I used to monetize domains heavily back in the day. auDA swiped them from me, because monetization wasn't allowed back then on .au domains. Elo and behold, it sparked the debate and a few months later they allowed monetization. No refunds, no apologies, no nothing. Not that I really cared because the domains made me a bucket load, thanks Google.

    Now days, I monetize a few and keep up the registrations of about 50-100 but they don't even do .0001% of what monetization used to bring. Gotta actually work and develop them.. doh. How the times have changed.

    I think the better question is, out of all those domains, how many are actually being used?
    Ignore my spelling and grammar.

    Thanks for all your responses to the poll so far. So the majority seems to own between 6 and 10 domains; that's a "safe" and manageable number

    What are you doing with the other one? Remember, if you park it at e.g. Sedo.com that's "use" as well.

    @Acroplex

    Actually, I have registered the domain with my real name (myname.com), and I kept the domain aside to use in future, other 3 domains I'm using for business right now.

    It doesn't have to be a .com - national ccTLDs count as well I can't believe that anyone reading WHT would *not* own a single domain.

    The concept of redirecting is interesting; still, these count as individual domains so please count them as well

    So it seems that the majority own between 2 and 50 domains - that's 72% of the vote.
