Sold My First New gTLD

Extract: "When I was looking at some .website domains, a name like Tennis which I used to play 12 hours a day at one time in my life, was $3,125, some other sports names from $625 to $3,125. I did not think I would find the type of premium name I was looking for at regular registration fee".

Would you register your ".seo" domain name?

Question asked to domainers: "Hello, I posted about this subject already and many of us know that there will be a Round 2 of the ICANN new gTLD program to start in 2016/2017 (probably later) but I like to ask id SEO agencies would benefit from such domain names and would they buy it for a better identification, for a better use or because...they have to?"

Interesting answers.

The gTLD Food Truck (Sedo)

Extract: "The company partnered with registries for a similar program during dmexco in Cologne last September. Sedo served frozen yogurt with toppings, and the toppings were all named after different TLDs. For example, someone who wants their froyo topped with chocolate sauce and sprinkles might have to order it “with .club and .sexy on top".

How Much Will .APP Sell For Next Week?

Extract: "I can tell you I have personal knowledge of one new gTLD selling for in a private auction for just short of $20M and there has been a lot of speculation of how much .Blog sold for last week in a private auction with guess ranging from around $25 Million to $30 Million. Unlike private auctions, the results of ICANN Last Resort Auctions are public, so we will know exactly the amount paid for .APP, even how many applicants dropped out at certain amounts along the way.".
