What Are You Doing With Your Best Domain?

I know. You love all the domains in your portfolio. We all love our domains, but there’s always one shining star, one domain that if you were told you had to drop all but one name, that’s the one you would keep. For some of you it might be the domain that hosts your blog or a popular site, for others it might be that one big name they finally bought, or a real gem they’ve had for years.

Of course it’s not fair for me to ask this without answering it myself. I’ll also give three favorites but you can certainly stick to just one! MorganLinton.com happens to be my favorite domain, it’s my first and last name and a daily ritual I truly love. My next favorite would be Summon.com which I sold earlier this year. Third up would be Kayaking.org which I’ve turned it into an online kayaking destination and one of the first sites to offer online kayak booking. We have relationships with kayaking tour operators across the country and have a team of bloggers that are all active kayakers around the world.

I always make sure that my company focuses on our best domains, that’s where I’ve found the most opportunity is. Now it’s your turn, what are you doing with your best domain?

    Hi Morgan,
    Another reason why I love reading your blogs. So true though, we all have “favourites”. Mine is DearDiary.com which is about to go thru it’s third incarnation.

    Kayaking.org is a great site and can only increase in value over time.

    I’m interested in seeing what other domainers have on their Fav List.

    Can I have 2 faves? My favorite domain that I own is visitnashvilletn.com and a close second is colemanlantern.com

    My post probably got flagged, Morgan, could you dig it out and remove this one : )

  • Arbel Arif December 14, 2012, 4:26 pm

    Great Post Morgan 🙂
    My best is “www.Baseball.net” – social network for Baseball lovers.

    Hi Morgan,
    Beside my last name Titean.com which it’s very similar to TITAN my absolute favor is
    DailyTicker Dot Com

    “…there’s always one shining star, one domain that if you were told you had to drop all but one name, that’s the one you would keep” – that is the one I most value, which is not necessarily the most favorite one.

    My favorite turd dotcom….. Someone had to buy it. I use it as my email 🙂

  • Alan Dodd December 14, 2012, 6:09 pm

    I’d find it tough to let go of FatBarmaid.com!

  • Aaron December 14, 2012, 7:30 pm

    I just acquired “Websites.org” I follow Morgans teachings so I can eventually develop it. Thanks Morgan

  • Christian December 14, 2012, 9:21 pm

    I am like you Morgan, my favorite domain is probably my blog at ChristianCalvin.com. My next favorite domain is PatriotAct.com.

    Thanks for the blog and sharing your knowledge.

    Between one of your recent posts, Less Is Often More And You Can’t Do It All Yourself and a project-wthin-a-project, http://dualscreenphones.com has me wondering if I’m not putting too much effort into a minor domain. I wasn going to run it by you! DualScreenPhones.com is definitely the jewel in my dual screen empire of a network of partially developed dual screen device / app / software dot coms with a couple dot orgs thrown in! It’s a niche – for sure! – but I keep feeling like I have this niche covered, like it’s my mission! It’s okay to be niche -y, right? But I am still awake putting final updates in, from bookmarked news and recent news . . . Check out Yotaphone dot com, the most recent dual screen phone launch! Am I crazy? Yes, I am. But isn’t that the fun of the internet, discovering a world-within-a-world?

    Linton, in anticipation of you launching FashionMetric.com, I have am launching Thoggs.com to cater to the fashion industry. Check it out at your earliest convenience. The full site will be ready in early Spring 2013.

    My favorite is one I just acquired – GrowHouse.com! Namejet auction. I live in CO which is leading the way in grow houses and the warehouse next to mine is a 10,000 square foot grow house. It smells like one too. I can see a grow house directory or a ecommerce supply store. Or, just a good investment when we see legalization become more widespread in 10 years. The funny thing is that I have never smoked even once in my life (Marine Corps veteran, etc.).

  • AbdulBasit Makrani December 15, 2012, 10:25 pm

    Very few are developed but most of them are parked.

  • Scott Bender December 16, 2012, 12:38 pm


    Love reading your blog. Great information and helpful stuff you offer.

    I have two favorites:
    GotDrunk.com being developed now

    Best regards,

    My favorite is Repaid.org. Just a personal finance blog, but it’s my favorite.

    @Craig Clark: Growhouse.com – that could be huge with the recent legislation. Nice buy!

  • Ale December 23, 2012, 9:13 am

    My favourite is gift.it I would develop it. Gift.it is a very powerful domain, it can have a magnificent future with all this gift cards, social gifting etc.etc., but too many people are asking to buy it….
