Unwanted domain names

Hi all,

Recently my first choice domain name became available and I managed to get it.

Now my query is what should i do with my previous domain name? Should i delete the name or just let it expire itself (expiring in few months time)?

Registered thru godaddy.

Thanks guys in advance.

if that domain did not had any content or seo value, you can just let it expire. If you have similar domain names, and a great idea for the first choice domain name, you can point the domain to the primary domain name, such that when your site becomes popular, someone will not steal the similar name.

I guess its your choice on what you want to do with it.

I would advise you to do a redirect from your old domain to the new one if there are traffic coming into the domain. Check the web logs to see if there is any traffic volume.

you may go to check how much your domain name worth and get it to bid before it expired to look for better price to sell rather than let it expired unless the domain name do not have value for the market right now.
