What do you think about all the other extensions? (.live, .space, etc)


Does it really hurt your brand to use the "other" extensions when purchasing domains? What exactly does it hurt? How does Google look at them? I am very interested in a couple that have weird extensions so your replies are needed.

For building a serious business or website I would only use .COM/.ORG or a ccTLD such as .IN, .US, .ME, .UK .DE, etc.

The new gTLDs have too many wacky rules and not enough consumer mindshare.


I wouldn't do it. If I ever get something in my mail with a bizarre extension, it gets deleted without me even looking at it. There is the spam reason, and there is also the virus reason.
There are now so many new domain extensions, it's getting ridiculous. Someone must be making a lot of money out of controlling these sales.
