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.
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.
In what appears to be the best news for domain investors in many years, The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Amazon.com is gearing up to directly challenge Google’s dominance of the online advertising market, developing its own software for placing ads online that could leverage its knowledge of millions of Web shoppers.
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?
Nine new gTLDs will be in the spotlight next week: four General Availability phases, four Early Access Program phases and one landrush. In 8 out of 9 cases, the big day is Wednesday, the 13th of August.
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.
So… you are a new gTLD Registry. You have set up all the systems, paid consultants fees, ICANN fees, its exciting times! All the people around you think you are onto the next biggest thing and you’re going to be rich! The technologists tell you “if you build it, they will come.”
