With the pricing available right now for domain names it is fairly easy to get caught up in this addiction. You won't believe how many neat domains are still unregistered, especially two keyword domains both hyphenated and unhyphenated (just talking about .com's).

Now, after gathering some 500 of 'em, WHAT DO I DO WITH THEM? I hardly have the time to keep up with my websites (running 21 right now with freelance help).

Any neat hint as of how and what you do most efficiently with a growing pool?

Hi, My name is BZ and I am addicted to buying domains.

Now, I only have 40 or so, but I do have at least 20 that are waiting on me to build out the websites for them. I find I buy a bunch of pointer domains that are close to my main domain.

BwanaZulia - you're in good shape.

I'd only be concerned if you'd start daydreaming in domains and add a TLD behind every second thought.

Imagine thinking about your workplace.biz because you got a business-related-problem.info and want to find a quick-solution.org to PleaseTheBoss.com.

Now THAT's sick ;-)

Maybe I should start a self help site for those addicted to domain name buying....

Suggested names please.

How about "Names Anonymous"? It got an ironic oxymoron feel to it. :)

Yes, yet another domain addict here. Well, it's not my fault if .uk ones are so darn cheap! Currently, I have 22 domains and I do try to make sites for each of them. I went and bought a couple of reseller accounts at a webhost too, so I can host them for nothing. Which makes the whole addiction thing much worse.

At least, having read this board, I was able to tell my husband that I am not the only one!
