MUST READ! Experts weigh in: what do new TLDs mean for domainers?

What should domain investors think about as new TLDs come to market?

By Andrew Allemann on 7th June 2012

Companies have submitted close to 2,000 applications to ICANN to run new top level domains covering everything from .app to .zippo. What will this mean for domainers as we watch a flood of top level domains hit the market in the coming years?

I reached out to close to 20 industry experts with diverse backgrounds to get their opinion on this question:

“New top level domains are on the horizon. What impact will this have on domainers?”

Interesting response from the CEO of Oversee.net:
The success of any given new TLD will depend on how aggressively the registry promotes it and how readily businesses and consumers adopt it. There is already a lot of new TLD competition, excitement, noise, and even confusion in the marketplace. My prediction is that a handful of new TLDs will emerge as winners. For domain investors, the challenge is predicting or tracking and quickly identifying new TLDs with strong promotion and adoption trends. For the new TLDs that do emerge as winners, our industry will certainly benefit from increased registration, parking and aftermarket revenues.
However, regardless of what happens with new TLDs, domain investors with premium domains in the top TLDs should not worry about declining value. Businesses will continue to look at these top TLDs as prime, coveted real estate. And direct navigation users will continue to use familiar, existing TLDs.
This statement is valid for .tel, too!

One more from the CEO of Sedo:
Sedo is excited to see which gTLDs have been applied for, and how these will impact the domain market. Generally speaking, the success of any new gTLD will rely on its commercial relevance based on the marketing strategy and business model behind it. With a good foundation on this front, a new gTLD can capture public interest, become a go-to location for consumers, and result in an innovative opportunity. On the secondary market as a function of the primary market, only those gTLDs that have a highly visible presence during their primary registration period will have the potential to be successful. We’ve seen a great example of this with CO Internet, who have partnered closely with Sedo.
