    Im sure there's a few of us with pretty nice portfolio's that I have seen:

    Davinder
    Anshul

    and Im assuming Jeff and Sanjeev must have some quality names as well.

    Heck, throw us all in there - if there are no objections :)

    TBG, Consider putting 3 of the best domains owned next to the individuals names (for voting purposes) - thoughts?

    Thank you Mr. Prakhar for notifying me for this event.
    I would like to nominate my self for the best Indian domainer of 2014.


    I have started domain with $100 investment and 10 domains about 4 years ago. Now I have over 2500 domains in my portfolio with some included domains.


    Up to date I have sold about 6600+ domains for $xxx,xxx


    Highlights of last year


    I have sold 45 domains at GoDaddy premium and Sedo last year for $xx,xxx


    Sold a package of domains for USD 8500 via escrow through my official website.

    Includes
    Coje.com
    RKR.net
    63t.com etc

    I have bought OJX.com, GND.org, TBG.net, LII.net and many other premium domains in 2014. and flipped over 3000 domains.


    As far I am concerned I am the no.1 domain seller at ebay.com

    Thank You

    Domainer of the year award is not just for the sales or the portfolio, I would presume; but for the kind of work they do towards the domaining community as a whole--Advice,Assistance,Sharing of Knowledge etc... On that Front I would like to nominate two:

    1. Mr. Sanjeev of Mitsu for not only providing best registrar services but also being there with friendly advice for pretty much anything related to domaining.
    2. Mr. Jeff of Inforum. I know how thankless running a forum is, experienced it briefly a decade back and never again. If not for Jeff's Inforum we would all not be here, selling,networking, acquiring knowledge, sharing information...etc. I definitely have benefited from this forum.

    I would nominate Mr. Jeff for Inforum.
    The very fact that we are having this conversation today here is because Jeff took the initiative, few years back, of creating the best and only dedicated community towards Indian domain names.
    He has upheld the name of Indian domaining and is the number 1 person who has contributed to the field.
    You people are amazing domainers and I totally agree to it. But when it comes to giving back, I consider that Jeff is a clear winner for his contribution to the community.

    Hence, I recommend Mr. Jeff of INFORUM.

    Although I have put my name in the nominations, (hope it leads to some sales or joint ventures) - I truly feel from this list ... Jeff deserves the very first award.

    Some of the names I own include:

    paisa.in
    venture.in
    rupee.in
    price.in
    team.in
    lakh.in
    leather.in
    carpets.in
    luck.in... and hundreds of other similar names that can be found on premium.in.

    Being able to decline offers in the $xx,xxx range for names is not easy to do, but when you own domains that define entire industries... understanding the long term value and potential of these names, and being able to hold out on potential higher offers down the road is what separates an average domainer from a great domainer.

    Every domain I purchase is with the intention of it being developed or for joint venture, however in the meantime an opportunity comes around for a great offer...I'm all ears!

    Best of luck.
