    I just bought a new gTLD registry’s domain for $10

    Are .fan and .fans the latest new gTLDs to go out of business? It certainly looks that way. ICANN has hit the registry with a breach notice for unpaid dues and stripped it of its registrar accreditation. In addition, its web sites no longer appear functional and I’ve just bought its official...

    The three most-registered new gTLDs took three very different paths last year

    Here’s a view of all new gTLD domain registrations combined. 2017 started with just under 28M new gTLDs registered and ended with just under 24M. After all was said and done, we’re now starting 2018 with three new gTLDs all neck and neck in the top three spots, .XYZ, .LOAN, and .TOP. What I...

    Registrations might just be biggest vanity metric when it comes to new gTLDs

    .TOP has been the #1 new gTLD for a while this year, and even now they sit at the #2 spot when it comes to registrations…but their one-year chart tells a different story: Ouch. This doesn’t look like a chart that would make you think this is one of the top new gTLDs. Think about it, if a stock...

    Almost 60% of new gTLDs are parked – is that a good thing or a bad thing?

    I find myself somewhat frequently checking to follow what’s going on in the world of new gTLDs. One of the recent trends I’ve been keeping an eye on is .TOP overtaking .XYZ as the “most registered” new gTLD and .LOAN is getting closer and closer to overtaking .XYZ to move into the...

    Not all TLDs are created equal when it comes to protecting domain owners

    In the whitepaper that EFF released they share some good tips for steering clear of what they call trademark bullies, copyright bullies, and overseas speech regulators. If none of these things ring a bell I’d recommend taking a look at the whitepaper because let’s be honest, there’s nothing more...

    GTLDs – Email Security: number 1 reason to buy the dot com

    As a business owner and a domainer, I have never been a fan of the new GTLDs because of the headache it gives me when I think about actually using them as a URL in the real world. Explaining them to people you meet in the normal course of a business day. The leakage of traffic when advertising...

    gTLDs: Revolution of New Dots Is Here; There Will Be Winners and Losers

    One of the most problematic things about the new gTLD space is that all of the applicants are trying to accomplish the same exact thing; to create a single authoritative place for their industry or brand. So they all want their dot, to be “the” dot. However, what they all do seem to agree on is...

    The Pricing of Internet Domain Names Looks Kind of Random

    What does it mean that a web address ending in .pizza costs more than one ending in .beer? Or that .bar costs more than .academy? That .church is pricier than .company? Hard to say. Maybe it doesn’t mean anything at all. Judging from a casual browse, the rental rates for top-level domains...
