FastCompany: If you Own More Than 300 Domain Names You Suffer From Domain Name Addiction
In what seems like an Article published by Domaingang.com, FastCompany.com, just published an article asking “Have You Registered 300 Domain Names?”
“If so, you may be suffering from “domain name addiction”–the tendency to register many URLs without following through on one strong idea, says recovering addict Lea Woodward.”
Ms. Woodward went on to say:
“At one stage I had about 90, which is apparently nothing. A lot of online entrepreneurs have 150, 200, as many as 300 domains registered. Not websites–just domains registered for an idea they had. Imagine how much that costs to renew every year! I’ve whittled mine down to about 18″
Here is part of the interview:
You registered all those .coms?
Yep. And the .orgs and .nets.
Is there a name for this problem?
I call it DNA–domain name addiction.
Did you register that one too?
No. Perhaps I should…
Sorry Ms. Woodward, that one in .com has been registered since 2006. However Domainnameaddictiontreatment.com and domainnameaddicationtreatmentcenter.com are available as of time of publication
