Well Known Names Drop from .VENTURES

As many are aware, renewal season has just started. While we won’t see actual results for roughly another month, this set of names that dropped out of the .VENTURES zone are intriguing. One could argue that these were potential squatted names, but we will let you decide.

There were a total of 91 names by three or four Registrants. At $60 a pop as listed on name.com, one could argue that it was money well wasted. Lessons learned for this next generation of Registrants.

UPDATE: We noticed many of the names below also dropping from .HOLDINGS too.  It had a total of 85 dropping out of the zone.

Here are the 91 names:
