Afilias wants to buy your failed gTLD

Afilias is on an overt campaign to snap up struggling new gTLDs at bargain basement prices.

“In the neighborhood of a dozen” gTLD operators responded seriously to Afilias’ booth at last month’s ICANN meeting in Buenos Aries, Afilias CMO Roland LaPlante said.

The company could potentially buy up tens of gTLDs over the coming year, LaPlante said.

“If all of these 500 strings with less than 5,000 names in them start looking for a new owner, it’s going to be a pretty active marketplace,” he said.

Over 300 of them at the moment, more to join that from new gtlds and more as the others get dropped below 5K.
That's a lot of failures but not much of a surprise to most.
