    Hello,
    SEMrush
    I'm wondering how long the average domainers, here on DP, has been in the game. Or has at least been a domain name owner.

    Let us know when you got your first domain name, whether you bought it, reg'd it or it was given to you.



    What year did you first become a domain name owner?

    Feel free to share comments and let us know what your first name was, or how many you owned that first year.


    :D

    I bought my first one in 2005, but have acquired several that were registered before 2000 now.
