    We all have domains in our portfolio that we accumulated as a result of bulk acquisitions, bad decisions, spelling errors, and whatever reason, and we also have some pretty good domains that we're just plain bored of keeping.

    I've bartered domains with a lot of you here and I'm trying to figure out why more people don't do the same. Do you see bartering as a waste of time that could better be spent registering/purchasing/selling domains? What do you with your unwanted domains?

    I usually drop them or give them away for free exchanging with sharing the website or the post.

    Give some away instead of letting them expire. ;)

    Once I decide a domain is no longer viable as a potential sales name or would be a useful name as a
    re-direct to one of our websites, I do three things:

    1. Lower / slash any listed for sale price for the remainder of the time I own the name;

    2. Contact any, if any, previously interested parties in the name and mention the new lowered price;

    3. Remove " auto-renewal " for the domain at the registrar and allow the name to eventually expire.

    Have never considered bartering an unwanted domain.

    I drop them for them to become either auction fodder, or future somewhat gems to be found.
    Not a plan here. If I can't get offers of 'at least' $25-$35 for them, then those interested can go pay $60-$70+ at auction. I do too much research etc., to just 'give them away'.

    I usually do one of these three: Give them away, Let them expire or sell them for a few dollars here on NamePros.
