Hi!

Is only a curious question...
You have a list of the domains you have let expire so that you can track them after a few months or years?


In my case, yes. :zippermouth:
I have a list of domains that have been in my portfolio and from time to time I analyze if they have had any other sales in namebio or if they are developed.

In the past i was tracking some domains i dropped , but I got stomach pain when I found many are picked by huge domains ! Then i stopped tracking .

.
:xf.cool: Yes this is one of the problems...
but I think it is not bad to know that one of your old domains has been well used. It means that you had chosen a good name, you just didn't know how to keep it long enough or that the price wasn't right.

It is a good basis for fine-tuning but I also understand that it can be frustrating depending on one's personality.

I recently did this job and I found out that people picked up some of my drops from many years ago, when I wasn't doing this seriously yet.

I had just registered these domains because I wanted to develop some projects on my own, which never happened. So I added them domains on SEDO for a while. Nothing else.

I didn't get offers for a year or so, then I dropped them.

Most of the names were .IT for the Italian market, so not much value on them.

But still, I can see some of them are now developed websites for the Italian market or parked for selling by someone that probably caught them when they expired.

For example, I didn't renew EliteFestival.com which now is on sale at Afternic
Party-tickets.com which is also on sale
Or GoSoldOut.com and UniMilano.com which now are developed websites

Yes exactly it can be a bit painful, but on the other hand, it's encouraging.
It means you made a good choice initially, so just get better at evaluating your drops imo
