    What you think about Life Span of business domains ?

    Last months i begin to see the trend of some business owner for rebranding itselfs.

    For me is somebit strange, because as an example, i have customers with 50 email accounts in their own VPS (too much cpu use because they have alreay opened in Outlool / Outlook express)

    Myself have some domains created in 1995 and 1997, and the majority are 2005 of more, then my domain brand / emails are used in at least 5y period.

    If u are or have webhosting customers, how many time is the life span of the domain ? do u see a trend ?

    If can put the country or morel links with the same issue.

    First :for email, i always use Google App, is free (until some number of user) and it work pretty fine.

    About the domain age, is about 3 years. Why 3 years?. Because most "new" business does not last the third year. Only a few number of companies last 3 year, and if last then they mostly will be able to last 10 or 20 years.

    Graphically speaking, it is some sort of inverse bell curve

    After studying expired domain trends it is usually not more than 4-5 years for many small businesses. If you can survive the initial problems, you can always handle the later difficulties.
