    Every year during expiry, what percentage of the domain names do you end up renewing?
    Obviously, the numbers would scale as your portfolio size and renewal rate increase.

    95%+.

    There is no substitute for time when it comes to end user sales.

    I renew about 90% of my portfolio each year, mainly because it is a high level dot com portfolio that produces results. It's smaller compared to the thousands of domain names some domainers have but it does well over the long run. Being small but tight for this domainer with a small business has been a successful formula. I hope everyone on this forum does well in this business, which takes years to develop.

    Still trimming some fat from my early days :xf.smile:
    It's around 80% at the moment and I expect an increase next year.

    Feeling sad that there are votes for 0-50%. Hope they find other good ways of monetization.

    If you aren't renewing stuff that long, chances are you've got some questionable domains (not always true, but often)

    Normally 70-80%.

    When I sell more, maybe up to 90%...

    P.s. Many new gTLDs are sold REALLY cheap the first year, but have high renewal fees. Some of those gets dropped. I rarely drop .com's or .org's.

    I'm being ruthless with domain renewals this year. Max 25% .com renewals

    Web3 is making waves off the back of the massive growth in NFT's and it's clear the DWeb is gaining traction. I'll be shifting those saved renewal fee's into .eth domains.

    About 85%. But choosing domains more carefully and using more research to analyze traffic, CPC, etc. so percentage keeps increasing.

    That's a big deal! You must be really holding some good names or super confident about your investment, which is a big thing!
    .GG - I do not have any idea.
    .IO - Isn't it like $30 renewals?

    I think some of these could be extensions like .CO which come very cheap in year 1 but very high in year 2 and so on. The business models in these strategies would differ.

    The business model could be quick flip names kind of business which is less sustainable but produces instant results. Better for newbies I would say, with little capital who want to scale

    I renew around 90% of .COM domains followed by .ORG, .NET, .CO.
    Around 50% of cool popular ccTLDs.
    and 20-25% of new TLDs including .store, .xyz, .online, .top

    had registered few .ooo but renewed zero. crap.
