    Once upon a time, probably 2002 or 3, before I even knew about domaining, I owned and let go of Barnworld.com and TheFirstImpression.com. I had started developing site's with them but moved onto something different. Just didn't renew the domains (that were 100.00/mo to renew) and developed the sites into something else. Definitely wish I had them now!

    There have probably been a few which I would regret. but life is way to short to ponder on what might have been. Any domain I drop, I've probably forgotten about within an hour. I'm more focused on trying to sell the domains I have and generally improving my ratio of quality domains in my portfolio. Not always successfully.

    Weren't those domains registered when NetSol was the only registrar, $79/yr?

    Yes, only I remember something like 99.00/yr...but may have been 79.00/yr. Easy to say don't look back...harder to do. ;)

    I let go several 4Ls (CHIP) which I though were crap before the Chinese CHIP craze.

    I did sell a whole lot, maybe hundreds, of 4L.com cheap here on NP before the price went crazy. I also had about 100 3L.nets which I simply dropped. My timing hasn't been the best :(

    Yes it was. But as I said in my first post. I don't focus on what might have been. I focus more on what I can do right with my current portfolio. (hopefully leaning lessons from the past as well). Although I don't see any parallels with these past blunders, presently. Except trying to reduce my nGTLDs. Which are not excessive relative to my .com portfolio.

    The only one (.com) I really regret is probably a handle I used a lot back in the day on Usenet.

    It has been listed for sale eversince I dropped it and can't really justify spending a couple of K on a novelty name to buy it back.

    In early 200x I owned and sold a domain related to "New World Order", was a perfect term like "Minisry of Love" or something similar ("orwellian"). In 2019 this term makes much more sense... Definitely a mistake.
    :(

    I have had regrets but don't really want to think about bad experiences. At sale at time you justify reasoning We all have names that could have held for more or ruined the enquiry with counter offer or wording. Worrying about what could or should have done with a sale is a lesson to late but unless you know the exact wording of every sale it is hard to learn from this. In many cases keywords would never repeat same sales.
