Your dotcom ratio

What is your dotcom ratio?

I'm at 80% now. As I'm aiming for 95% I'll only keep the very best of my .nets and .orgs.

.Info? Zero.

.Biz? Zero.

.ccTLDs? I'd love some .de names but even the half decent ones are beeing drop caught within a nanosecond.

Maybe the mods can add some options to get it more detailed.

But even without that option we all know you only got top quality stuff. You should sell a lot more though.

I was kidding. Truthfully I don't know why I have such a .netphobia. Probably genetic.

Re: Your dotcom ratio

.netphobia isn't such a bad thing. I prefer to leave the .nets for the natives as well.

I remember when I took that leap. It's a big step. Did you go through the 5 stages of grief as well?

Denial (I really didn't register a .net, did I?)
Anger (why the $%&! did I register a .net!)
Bargaining (can I get a partial registration fee back?)
Depression (I can't even sell them for reg fee on idnforums.com)
Acceptance (I can drop them)

I don't think you are someone that needs to worry about domains only paying for themselves. I had a few .nets once that paid for themselves too, but they just did not gel with the rest of the group so I had to drop them.
