Other. How much profit the domain earned me vs the time taken to profit from the domain.

When you are renewing any domain name, you must ensure that the keywords used in domain name are trending to that particular year or period. If you take an example videocassets.com CDROM.com these are obselet now. You must research for trending keywords to that particular period.

Its a hard decision to make per usual but heres what usually cross my mind....

Did I register the domain name? if yes -> then my thoughts are ... that I still believe in this domain name as much as I would believe in the next handreg i decided to purchase... so with that I might as well renew...

did I BUY aftermarket... is it worth letting it expire? For instance if the name is a 4 letter domain or something like that no it's not worth letting it expire in which case autorenew.

If i bought the name aftermarket and it cost less then renewals when I originally bought... or it was part of a package or something... then no ill let it go...

lastly ... if it was a hand reg... and it's effect on me didnt age well then ill let it expire... aka if i thought something was super clever or if it was very popular at the time... but the magic wore off or the name sounds dumb to me now.. then obviously cut the slack....
I would act almost the same way!

While at it, i would also consider the number of enquires that would have come and if some other tld of the same keyword has a popular website running and garnering good traffic.
