Last week, I received my renewal notices from GoDaddy for N.Holdings and N.Ventures. These domain names are expensive to renew for another year, but I plan to keep them for the time being. Perhaps I will put them up for sale this year or next, but I think they are worth more than the renewal cost, so I will keep these two names.
I don’t own many other new gTLD domain names (fewer than 10 I think), so my renewal decisions are pretty easy to make. If I owned hundreds of new domain names with thousands of dollars in renewal fees, my decisions would be more complicated.
I am sure people in the domain investment space are thinking about their own renewals, and I am curious about whether you plan to renew the majority of your new gTLD investments.
This is probably not all that cut and dry of a question, so I think it would be helpful for you to share some feedback about why you are making your renewal decision. I also understand that most people do not renew every single domain name, so the question asks about the majority of new gTLD domain names rather than a simple “yes” or “no” question.
