    “I only participated in two domain goldrush’s, .tv in 2000 when Idealab took over, and .us in 2002. I only sold one .tv and finally let the others expire, and I don’t think I sold any .us. I got decent enough names, it’s just .tv and .us were not that desired.”

    I’m a little lost Mark. It shows on your site that you have 627 tv names. Are you saying that you bought all of these names after the initial release and that all the ones that you bought during the release you let drop. Wow thats crazy. So the names that you got way later on were better the ones you got when the registrations began. Am I reading this right or am I confused?

      Yes Todd. All the .tv domains I got in 2000 I dropped. I didn’t get another until a few years ago, I got some of the old ones back and others that are as good or better I think. In 2000 many names that are now regular renewal fees were premium fees like $500 and $1000 per year. And I am even dropping some of the ones I got in the last few years, like I said in another post I am making adjustments based on actual sales and inquiries. And some of those .tv domains I am just listing for friends, they are not all mine, but I have a few hundred.

    I think there are some Gtlds that have potentials and yes it is an exciting time to be in business.

    Market is set to a record high 16K, same sex marriage, domains and of course the Marijuana- all happening in this country.

    Thats Incredible. I didn’t realize that. What name did you have in any extension that you let drop that you kick yourself for not keeping?
