Should Domain Forums Have a Marketplace Section for New gTLDs?

I’m quite surprised that at this point, domain forums don’t have a marketplace section for new gTLDs. It would be an important step towards generating reseller market activity, so the fact that there’s no such thing yet is definitely not good at all for the new extensions.

Sedo Introduces New Offer Page

Once you click on that, your browser should open a new window with the offer screen on the page. I looked at a few domain names that are listed for sale on Sedo, and it appears to me that this new offer page is likely only found on domain names that are parked with Sedo. I did not reach out to the company to ask because of the weekend.

Do you question your investment into a new gTLD as a Domainer?

I was just wondering if the investment into the new gTLDs as a Domainer(buying domains in order to flip it for profits) is going to bear results? I have been reading about the new gTLDs a lot. Sometimes, I think that an investment into a good .COM would be 10 times better than buying a new gTLDs. What do you guys think?? Are you completely satisfied while investing in new gTLDs, not as an end user, but as a Domainer?
What is your take on the effect of new gTLDs on the popularity of .COMs?

High New gTLD Registration/Renwal Fees – Let’s Crunch Some Numbers

The average sales price? Let’s be generous and say $3,000, which would once again be a better performance than what dot com offered in 2012-2013. As you can find out by taking a look at this infographic, the mean sales price of a dot com was between $2,000 and $2,500 in 2012-2013. Closer to $2,000.

Verisign to .TV Investors – They’re Back – Premium Renewals Are Back

I have written a few times about all the new gtld premium pricing and wondering if inside Verisign they were saying “WTF”. They took a lot of complaints and criticism for the premium renewal price on domains that were premium names.
