Take stock of your top Domains.
On Twitter yesterday, Shane Cultra said he didn’t know why so many people keep their domain portfolio private.
2nd thought. If you are ashamed to publish your top 50 names then essentially you already know that your names aren’t that good. Which is fine unless you operate as a domain investing expert

I asked Shane what his current top 10 domains were, and he has a nice list. I also created my top ten list (all .com):
After coming up with this list within a few minutes, I decided to take stock of my overall portfolio.
I’ve said this before, but my main business is Domain Name Wire. Domain investing is secondary. I also run PodcastGuests.com, which has turned into a nice business.
I roll over my cash from domain sales into domain purchases. I don’t need to throw off excess cash from my portfolio because of my other businesses.
Looking at the market and what I’m buying lately, I’ve been focusing on domains that I can resell for $1k-$5k. I’ve added a couple of hundred domains to my portfolio over the year, but most have been acquired for under $200 on GoDaddy Auctions.
This is probably reflected in my top domain list. My domain investing isn’t focused on blockbuster sales. I’m impressed with people who do that but it’s not how I play the market. So I like my top ten list, but beyond 20 or so domains my portfolio drops off in a hurry.
Beyond my top 10 domains, here are some others I like:
DataMapping – becoming a big business
Leptospirosis – it’s long, but the other day at the vet I was told I need to get this vaccine for my dog
USMCA – I created a simple site on this domain and it gets hundreds of visits per day.
PatentLicensing and PatentMining – I spent time in this business. It’s big.
LeftofCenter – A three word domain that gets lots of purchase inquiries.
PodcastSearch – As you know, I’m big on podcasts.
Heists and CrimeSpree – They have negative connotations but I like them.
ShowMeState – Since I grew up in Missouri.
CivilForfeiture – I bought this because I was frustrated about civil forfeiture. Its days are probably coming to an end now.
HullSpeed – Great brand.
What are your top 10 domains.
