    If you are a social media influencer, you can lose years of your work, all your followers, and all your income: in one moment.

    You didn't really touch on influencers losing followers because they sometimes post idiotic things, but I suppose that is balanced out by the saying 'there is no such thing as bad publicity.'

    Cheers :)

    Exactly as you say, even bad publicity sells! So social influencers are not suffering much from that unless they are really very unruly :)

    In recent months many cryptocurrency Youtubers have had temporary bans from uploading new content and in some cases have had their entire channel removed for no apparent reason. They are starting to advise followers of their backup channels, Instagram accounts etc. The only one I have seen emphatically trying to move his followers away from YouTube is Ivan on Tech.

    As decentralized technology advances, we will see migrations move away from centralized entities. There is many projects in development to fix the issue you described.

    I'm not really on the ball with cryptocurrency (I'm too old to learn new things) but could this have anything to do with Youtube following the laws of certain countries where the content is available?

    Bring.Love for $30,000? or...........

    BringLoveAlways.com for $1 using a coupon or........

    BringLove4allAlways.com for $1 using a coupon, the original name but the one I posted before is shorter and a .com. That would be the better route.

    Make an experiment - log of from Namepros now, for 5 minutes. Make good coffee.

    After 5 minutes, try to remember those 3 names in your post.

    You can not forget the name like Bring.Love. But you have already completely forgotten those $1 coupon names you have advised, I am right? :)

    No. I imagine the people that would own Bring.Love if they tried to verbally pass it on, would say BringLove.com by accident at times and the people that try to remember it would type it in wrong.

    Poll it:
    BringLoveAlways.com for $1

    Bring.Love for $30,000

    oh and...............

    BringLove.com is available for $3,495

    You can save $26,505 with buying BringLove.com for $3,495 instead of Bring.Love for $30,000

    So

    BringLove.com for $3,495

    or

    Bring.Love for $30,000 - you overpriced this one. Why would I spend an extra $26,000+ for that, when I can get the .com for much less?

    BringLove.com for $3,595 and a lot better than Bring.Love

    I really don't get it how you price bring.love for $30K when you have BringLove.com for $3K.

    You know, we know, and everybody knows, that 99% of the people will end going to BringLove.com, when they hear, "hey, go to Bring Love site and see it".

    Not to mention the more than 80% of people mailing to info (at) bringlove.com instead of info (at) bring.love

    The only realistic option, for someone serious wanting to start serious business, it's going to BringLove.com

    But hey... everybody is free to purchase whatever they want for whatever price and do whatever they want with their money...

    And this was my opinion about the matter...

    This is not the answer to my question - which was, you have already completely forgotten those $1 coupon names you have advised, or not? :)

    Thanks for your comment, I appreciate it!

    Our thinking is very different. When it comes to word1.word2 vs word1word2.com, I am thinking in terms of "raw keyword equity", while you are mainly thinking in terms of established TLD (.com familiarity) over the years.

    The debate:

    value of word1.word2 VS word1word2.com

    can basically be transformed into answering the question:

    is "raw keyword equity" more important to business owners then familiarity of .com domain names?

    "Raw keyword equity" is not a very known concept yet, but I am writing a series of articles about it at the moment, and definitely will want to hear any feedback on that! This will also shed some light to why some business owners are eager to pay over half a million of dollars on great new gTLDs like vacation.rentals and why bring.love is definitely not overpriced :)

    Thanks for taking my post in a good manner... a lot of people would just jump on one's neck, if they don't like what they read on the reply :)

    I am just saying what I think about the matter. I know there have been big sales of word.word, and I understand your point of view.

    What happens, in my opinion, is that word.word looks very nice, but nowadays, 99% of the world think in a .com when thinking on a domain.

    The biggest companies, the majority of the new ones, the most majority of new registrations are .com, and until this won't change, .com will be the King of domains.

    Anyway, I really wish you good luck with your new gtls domains!

    Sutruk, it's a catch-22.

    To bring change, part of the onus is on us, the investors, the sellers, the people who go about day by day word of mouth. If we don't tout it, how much of the world is going to discover word.word on their own?

    Personally a good matching word.word is better than "nice", it is actually the perfect package.

    So when people come along and try to push inferior alternative spellings or extra words because it's in the .com extension, they are not only doing future business owners a disservice to an amazing name, but new gTLD investors as well.

    We need people especially here on NP backing up new G investors and all our hard work. Trying to pit something like "bringlovealways.com" against "bring.love", it is clear the thought process is not geared towards quality, but quantity. .Com has sold the world over, why would anyone consider something better?? Come on now.. What is the point of an extension if it doesn't add to the name? This is what to bring to the world. BringLove.com is great, Bring.Love is full circle.

    Full circle? C'mon now.

    You're doing a disservice to those future business owners by pushing inferior extensions that will only lead to confusion.

    So let's use the example in the quote.

    What would you personally pick if you wanted to build a business on that name.

    Example 1
    BringLove.com
    Bring.Love

    If they were the same price to buy, which one are you personally choosing.

    Example 2
    BringLove.com at $3,495
    Bring.Love at $30,000

    Those are the current, real life Buy Now prices. Which one are you buying?

    ----------
    "We need people especially here on NP backing up new G investors and all our hard work."

    What? Why would anybody need to back new gtld investors? Then hard work? It's buying domains, why would that be harder than any other extension? What about price points? Why would new businesses pay $26,000+ extra in the example above? If you want these to succeed, they need development. They'll just sit there with For Sale signs with the public never seeing them with those prices.
