Talk to any marketer and chances are that they’ll have a stash of domain names for projects that may likely never materialize. Talk to the enthusiastic ones and they might have a couple of hundred domains registered at their domain name registrar.
I’ve just renewed another 7 of my current ones for another year at Namecheap, using the coupon codeÂ GOLDDEAL (good for renewals if you have more than 50 domains) which saves you a little under $1 in registration costs.
And I’ve picked up a new one using the Namecheap December 2008 coupon code THREEKINGS, saving about $1 too.
(If you’re looking for great value webhosting, check out Bluehost, which was my first shared webhosting account and I still keep it around, even though I have a dedicated server now).
The next step is to start planning and scheduling time for doing something with the domains. A couple of the partners I’m working with are going into a consolidation phase and weeding down the number of projects each person is working on – no more than 2 major projects – which will go a long way to maintain focus. It’s a great idea in my opinion.
