Domain Name Experiment Update

The jury is still out.

A few months ago, I registered a bunch of generic domain names, created a few more random domain names with the Web 2.0 name generator, and hired my 9-year-old daughter to blog about the names.

What have I learned so far?

  • That Heels.com is, by far, the best domain name I’ve ever registered.
  • That keeping track of (not to mention optimizing) several hundred domain names is tricky.
  • That if it costs you $8/year to register a domain name, then you have to make about 2.2 cents/day on the domain name to break even. Or wait for future buyers. Or go into the underpants business.

For now, here’s a (more or less) static page of some of my domain names.
