    I had an interesting conversation earlier this week and was asked a question that I didn’t know the answer to…but wish that I did. The question was, as the title of the post already gave away, out of all the .COM domains registered, how many are owned by Domainers/Domain Investors/Speculators?

    There was a blog post in January that took a sample of 100,000 domain names and came to the conclusion that 30% of domains are owned by Domain Investors…but I’m not sure I buy this.

    While I’d love to think that as Domainers we have almost a third of the .COM domains under our control, I think that estimate is way off and the number is likely a whole lot lower.

    That being said, I don’t have the data, nor have I spent any time doing the research required to get the correct answer. So I thought I’d throw it out to the community and my readers to see if someone out there does have something a bit more conclusive.
