    Be interested to hear how many domains others on here own. I have about 70 and this is enough to manage for me ATM.

    About 10,000 with 8,000 (ish) being .co.uk

    I guess that makes me a domainer.

    Would love to know what your best or favourite one is?

    Same question to Stephen.

    I own about 300 down from 1000 since joining Acorn and hopefully seeing the light.

    Gambia.co.uk is my favourite and one of my first and it is a properly used trading domain.

    I wish had the resources to develop them all as websites but in this economy it is difficult to justify the investment.

    I will be prunning my list down but I keep buying more and catching ones that I would really like to develop, they are all second tier domains not like Edwins generic premium domains but in the last week or so caught:

    SoleTraders.org.uk
    HampshireCleaners.co.uk
    skiz.co.uk
    GolfHandicapCertificate.co.uk
    NewYorkNails.co.uk
    CreateMusic.co.uk
    OfficeMugs.co.uk
    HotelCapeVerde.co.uk
    joti.co.uk
    allsizeposters.co.uk
    OutdoorPrintedBanners.co.uk
    SiteTested.co.uk
    marriage-certificate.co.uk
    thiscarforsale.co.uk
    WOWnails.co.uk
    bellyrings.co.uk
    mofu.co.uk
    GameSpares.co.uk
    Disorganized.co.uk
    TourOperatorSoftware.co.uk
    HotelGatwick.co.uk
    MemorySolutions.co.uk
    TowerDefence.co.uk
    ExcerciseWorks.co.uk
    PawsPhotography.co.uk
    freelanceillustrators.co.uk
    wiro.co.uk
    ExperienceFlorida.co.uk
    FineDinning.co.uk
    BespokeFrames.co.uk​

    But until they are developed they are for sale (as are the 8,000 other .co.uk's) just to keep paying the renewal costs.

    I have about 20, only a handful are really worth anything, the rest I could dump now without too much worry.

    I'm just now getting into catching though, but I will be surprised if I ever have more than 100.

    I own 101 but that's probably about 80 too many. I'm only going to try and keep the ones I'm going to develop.

    The amounts not important its do or will they ever make a return one that does is worth more than many that won’t.... Although most domainers follow that in reverse ;)

    Nothing I can discuss in detail right now, but there IS a long-term plan.

    Stays at around 1000 domains for me , registered about 20 .coms in the last month (very unusual for me) in an area that I'm keen to see if it moves forward.

    I'd love to discuss the subject openly but have my eye on the potential drops from those that picked-up on it a year or two before me

    I'm down to less than 10 now, pretty much deleted all but a couple of .co.uk a few weeks ago. I never really qualified as a domainer! This doesn't mean I won't buy more just means I'll be much more selective.

    I've currently got round 300, mostly co.uks with a few .coms and .org.uks thrown in for good measure. Probably had nearer 500 back in the day, before I realised how quickly two years passes and you've got to cough up the reg fee again... and again...

    Probably about 500. Mostly tied to businesses I run or plan to launch, but maybe 150 or so for sale.

    Around 500 for me too. Most .uks. Not a domainer, Just bought for projects or to prevent others in a niche (when EMD meant something) Will most likely trim down to the decent 100 when I can be bothered!
