Do you own any domains you aren't using? I have a really old one I keep forgetting to cancel the auto-renew on. it's not costing me too much but I just have no use for it. Do you have any domain names you own that aren't being used?
 
I have a few domains that I own that I’m no longer using. I should get rid of some that I no longer use…
 
the real question for me is out of the 10s of domains i own, which one actually has a server associated with it? 1. this is why i disable all of my auto renewals because i just either don't have the time (that's a lie) or i just lose interest (truth).
 
How do you define "don't use"? I own 4 domains, but none of them is associated with a website at the moment. But I use them for E-Mail and FTP.

That sounds like a definition of not using. :p

I have a couple, but usually let them expire too.
 
I created Sinistra Gaming not realizing someone else had clammed that name on Twitch so I am currently trying to come up with a new brand for my streaming lol but that's the only one I currently have that I don't use? lol
 
Nope, I've only purchased about 2 - 3 domains in my lifetime and used them for their expiration period.
 
I used to have a lot of domains that I was not using, but these days I am using all of the domains I own.

I have one like that... it was registered back in 2003 to use for a motorcycle site, but then changed my mind to target more than Texas for the site. Decided to keep the domain since I had been using it for quite a bit of email and that's what it is still used for 21 years later.
I've got another one that I was going to use to do paid hosting with about a decade ago... but decided I really didn't want those headaches of another job since I was retired.
I keep it around as a catch-all for stuff, mainly setting up server/vps names.

I own over 200 domains. Most of which I don't use. I have auto renew turned off because I like to renew them on a case by case basis. I have unfortunately lost a few domains I purchased for large sums this way though :(
