Top Topics: How Do You Manage Your Domains?; Where Do You Get Your Domains?...

By James Iles, Aug 3, 2020
  1. In this week's Top Topics, we look at the best methods for managing your domain names, the featured poll asks where you source most of your domain names from - whether that's auctions, hand registrations or by other means, and what's the best way to invest your money now to achieve a $300,000 return on investment in five to ten years from now?

    How Do You Manage Your Domain Names?

    For those who have sizable portfolios, how do you manage your domain names? To keep track of nameservers, expiration dates, and much more for hundreds or thousands of domain names is some feat.

    How would you go about managing such a sizable portfolio? Do you use tools such as excel, or a custom-made database?

    I have 160 TLDs I've had parked for 23 years (industry headings from the yellow pages) and want to make a website for each one with the domain in the url bar (www maltliquor com for instance) for each one. Which hosting company would be the best to go with that would allow me to make a unique page and have my own graphics on each background? I want the pages to be scrollable, as there is a ton of information I want to cover with each domain to give some idea of what similar names have sold for (like many millions of dollar each that are directly comparable) and how to determine what the organic results would be for their company. Some of these domains get massive hits per month without any website attached and they are all 100% virgin, never used or sullied by anyone. I've spent over 20 years looking for someone to broker these for me with no luck, as they keep thinking urls like this sell for hundreds of dollars. Really? Like legalattorneys com? I could make any broker that knew what he was doing a millionaire instantly. Any suggestions would help.
