    As of December 2020, other extensions included in the popular category at namebio come in at an average sale price of $1,622 and $1,198, for .net and .org extensions respectively. When we consider all TLDs there’s an average price of, $2,214, so only the .com is exceeding this value, making it the best investment option of the three. Now let’s explore ccTLDs and ngTLDs...read more

    It should be noted that IP addresses were never a replacement or used in place of domains. IP addresses point to specific servers whereas domains can be pointed to any server at any time. Before domains became popular, business sites used sub-domains of their web host. In my 30 years of being in the business, I never recall IP addresses ever being used to access websites through a browser.

    Not really the focus of the article, but you can visit sites with dedicated IP addresses in lieu of registering a domain name.

    Alternatively, and perhaps more popularly, you can use a host’s subdomain as well. For more info, visit here.

    Sure. However, as practice, IP addresses were never used for direct access to websites via browser. First of all, you need a dedicated IP to access a specific website. In the early days all hosting was shared. The common way to open web pages were via web host sub-directories. Yes, not the focus of the article. Just helping for accuracy.

    Thanks, I’ll be sure to add sources for where I’ve found information in the future. I’m always open to clarification and different perspectives.

    Data speaks. You have a fair point :)

    Key take aways
    • .COM is the major extension when comes to domain name investment opportunity and majority of the sales completed are .COM ( more than 80% of the overall last year sales data on Nambio is from .com) . It has a lot of high price sales and as well as low price sales , avg certainly an interesting way to measure the investment opportunity.
    • Legacy GTLDs like .net or .org are established however they likely slowly loosing ground in average prices ( .Net avg prices are going to be impacted for sure, .Org still has some context and may remain stable for few years )
    • ccTLDs avg sale price is getting better , Investing into the right ccTLDs is one of the lucrative investment opportunity
    • newGTLDs avg may be higher, but still the risk is also slightly higher as the adoption is yet to improve on this front and also another important factor you have to consider to new GTLDs is the renewal prices are also high too. Specially the premium names has some registry given higher renewal prices

    ngTLD renewal pricing is really hurting adoption of those domains. Especially for the generic ones like dot online, dot live, dot shop, etc. Europe is very interesting as ngTLDs seem to be accepted there more as are dashed domains which goes against the grain in North America. Also ccTLDs are very strong in countries like Canada, Australia, Germany, UK, and some other countries. Dot US has never really taken off.

    The title of the thread says it all.......

    What would be interesting is taking the sales for every extension from the last x amount of years, then categorising the data - amount of sales - both reseller & end user, highest sale price, average sales price and median sales price....Instead of just sweeping of all the ccTLDS's (over 300) & newGTLDs (over 500) under one rug.......at least this way you could analyse the breakdown of each extension and ascertain their merits (if any in some cases) on an individual basis......nightmare of a job, unless someone who is tech savvy has or can build a script to do it.......

    Overall the data looks good, but when you break it down by every extension the picture would tell a different story with some extensions carrying far more weight than others.......
