We started developing domain names in the mid-ate 90’s and most of our domain names were development projects or were held for future development projects which were cancelled.
As we accumulated more and more names (thousands of domain names) we realized that developing many of our domains would ever happen! We had people calling and emailing us on a regular basis asking if we would be willing to sell a domain name. Overall we only sold a handful of domains while continuing to purchase keyword rich, brandable names for future projects.
In 2003 we launched namedelivery.com in order to sell domains we were not using or would never have time to develop.
Now, 12 years later we still buy domain names for development however we are more proactive with regard to selling those we are not using at GREAT prices!
