    So I came across an old post on Key-Systems.net that dealt with new gtlds. The title of the article, "These 87 sites dropped their .com for a smarter new TLD (New data)" It was written in 2015. The first thing of note was that there were only 52 names listed, with the number 51 being repeated twice. So I took a look at each name to see who kept their new gtld, who switched and who closed … [Read more...]

    Nice analysis, thanks for sharing :)

    Seems like some of those who selected unique, 1 worder brands were happy with them and kept them, then some of those who selected "more creative" 2 worders abandoned them - this just support the notion that when selecting new gTLDs it is good to go for unique, strong combos, and I would say preferably 1 worders (with some exceptions).

    Seems there's a mix of both, there's a few two-worders on the list that are still in use:

    PrintNW / Rocks
    TourEiffel / Paris
    FatBeard / Vegas
    FutureLegends / Cricket
    TheGreen / Diet
    DriftAway / Coffee
    ScratchTown / Beer
    HalfHitch / London

    Might make for a good study, adding another curve ball into investing in new Gs. Some of these choices tells me they aren't interested in "domainers rules".. when choosing quality combos, ie PrintNW or TourEiffel.. these are pairings typical of .com.

    Some of the others, although two-worders they are exact matches to company, and the company product niche, ie coffee, beer, and geo-target London.

    @Brands.International noticed your re-brand on your NP username, looks great!
