People register domain names for many reasons.
Sometimes they register a domain name that reflects their company name or the name of a project or product. Maybe they plan to launch a service and then don't find the time to do it. Other times the domain names reflect a "fad" or the "next big thing"
Who really knows?
So what happens when those domains aren't renewed? >They get deleted or dropped - thence this site's name. While some of the domains are probably meaningless strings of letters and numbers others are gems.
The .i.e. namespace, which is the country code top level domain for Ireland, is significantly smaller than .com or .co.uk. With less than 200k domain names currently registered it is still possible to find keyword rich domain names at no premium price
We're currently adding features to the site to help you find nice, memorable domain names for your business or personal projects. Want to see something? Let us know.
