When you receive a renewal notice for your Domain Names there are a few questions to ask yourself before letting the domains expire

Will I use this Domain Name again?

Nobody likes to pay for something they are not using. But domain names are different. Domain names are completely unique, it is not a simple thing if you decide you want to use the domain again. Someone probably already have registered the domain name. Recent studies show more than 75% of expired domains are re-registered by someone else. Domain names are not very expensive. Paying the small renewal fee can be a good insurance policy in case you decide to use the domain name in the future

Could It Be Worth Money to Someone Else?

Millions of dollars worth of pre registered domain names are bought and sold each month
According to Wikipedia.org
Whisky.com sold for $3.1 million in 2014
Vodka.com sold for $3.0 million 2006
Candy.com sold for $3.0 million in 2009
Loans.com sold for $3.0 million in 2000
Your domains are probably not worth this much. But before you let your domain expire consider if someone else might want to buy it. Even a couple of hundred of dollars would be a nice plus

You can auction off your domain name or list it for sale on domain marketplaces like Sedo.com and Afternic.com It can take time to sell a domain. so we suggest starting the process of selling those domains before renewed is needed

What if someone else owned it?

This is probably the most important question. You may decide you will never use that domain. Maybe it was a domain you registered just to protect your website, Or maybe it is a domain to show off your new born grand children? You don’t need it now, but how would you feel if someone else owned the domain you used?

People are standing by waiting to snap up domain names that expire

They often use algorithms to determine which domains to re-register when they expire, and this could include a domain that had meaning to you. They will then try to resell the domain and will put ads on the website while they wait to resell it
