2014 is going to be a great year for Dot Com Domain Name Investors. New gTLDs will flood the market and create a lot of buzz around the world. The positive side to New gTLDs is that a lot of advertising money will be pumped into promoting them to the public and businesses around the globe. A lot of new investors will look into investing money into domain names, thus our community will grow in size.
New Domain Name Investors will push their arguments that New gTLDs is the new gold rush on the World Wide Web. They cry that Dot Com will decline in value over the next 10 years based on false analogies, false calculations and false predictions. Anyone with any Domain Name Investment experience will tell you that 99.987658% of bids in domain name auctions are for Expired Dot Com Domain Names and not for dotWhatever domain names!
If you don’t believe me, visit any of the top Domain Name Auction sites and observe for yourself. Expired Dot Com’s dominate the reseller market every year and will continue to do so for years.
And most importantly, Dot Com Domain Names will always be priced higher! You could price your dotWhatever domain name for any price but no one will ever pay you more than what they’ll pay for the Dot Com version!
dotWhatever domain name investors would be better off gambling at the casinos in Las Vegas as Rick Schwartz pointed out in his comment on my blog a few days ago and I couldn’t agree more!
New gTLDs will benefit no one in my opinion except the organizations that will collect money to sell you Pigeon.Shit – so you could spend millions promoting Pigeon.Shit while the owner of PigeonShit.com notices a huge spike in traffic and value!
Until my next Domain Name Investment Article, Happy Domaining!
