Which domains (up to 10) do you now regret dropping? please keep it relevant to today's domaining trends, so nothing pre-historical, like: "I dropped car.com back in 1999."

Here are mine:

Some dating back in 2011 / 2012, that I either dropped or sold poorly. Crypto investment exchange (dot com) was one. I think I had "advisors" too. Combinations like this. Normally not a fan of 3 worders, but held for a short while and dropped. I had "bugbear" at one point, first registered in 1996, has its own unusual meaning. Fancy trader (fancy diamonds business), red trader (popular colour, paired with a meaning of bear market trading), owner today wants Low X,XXX. Some regret, but I won't cry too hard

VirtualMetaverse
vMetaverse
Metaverse365
Metaverse247
M-E-T-A-V-E-R-S-E

All .com

I renewed these for around 4 years, then felt 'metaverse' was going nowhere, that all changed quickly with the 'Meta' (Facebook) rebrand and the NFT and crypto space embracing 'the metaverse' now these domains are taken in multiple extensions.

Bullion.xyz and a few other good .XYZ names.

Just because I was stupid enough to forget to renew them. But lesson learned!

I let a domain expire, but someone BIN purchased it on Afternic for $1K. Luckily, the domain was still in redemption stage, so I was able to get it back and sell it. I had to pay the redemption fee but still made a good profit. :xf.wink:

I just repurchased my first domain (20 years and 3000+ domains later). It is the .com of a first nation and not for resale.

Overarching.com - about 25 years ago. Used for a project then dumped it.

This is before realizing what domains would become

Acht.tv 8 in German, was later picked up and sold by another member of the .tv subforum here at Namepros for $10K.

When .xyz launched I was not a big believer not going to Monday morning Quarterback like I saw these big Swetha sales coming, But I did register 3 for the heck of it, Encryption, Cryptography and FantasySports.

Sold way too cheaply, 7599.com, Sayy.com, XEF.com.
