    Most big companies have a .com - URL, I do not denie that.
    But even the biggest of them are far from the top.
    Because they use .com which is not top.

    You can expect a biased response. Those holding hundreds of .coms will say .com will live forever. You should know that they are in comma. We all know no empire lasted forever. Rome died and the same will be for USA and other entities as well. Just ignore them. On the other hand, those who are unable to register good .coms resort to registering new extensions in the hope that they will be valuable in future. And nobody knows the future. So, buy both .coms and new extensions.

    Agreement is Not a Proof that Something is Correct. Majority are losers. Winners are few.

    And .com is not top as well.

    Only .top is top, the .com market got topped by that fact.

    One fact with a huge effect.

    Those who understand that .com is not top agree.
    All others are trying to hold up their absurd idea that .com is top.
    But it isn't and whoever can read should know it.

    As the Original Author of this thread,
    I just want to know what is the "NextGen" extension, as a Domaining community, we should be looking for,
    Apart from .COM

    .IO?
    .TOP?!
    .CO?
    .ME?

    Anything else that is a Serious contender here?
    I have dealt with .IO and paid serious Cash buying Cryptos on .IO
    Got my goods delivered - though I was hesitant initially because of the unheard of extension...

    I would not hesitate on a .COM, but do the Milleniums care about the Extension?

    Okay, if .TOP is Top! Congratulations.
    Mind sharing your stats for .TOP,

    How many .TOP have you sold and for What price?

    Thanks.

    Stats about sales (or registration numbers) are completely irrelevant in context to .top because they are not the indicator.

    The indicator why .top is top is because it is literally top (you can't denie that words have meaning) and this is the relevannt indicator why .com is not top.

    I wouldn’t say dead, however I would certainly say strong competition especially since Verisign just admitted they need .web

    Verisign needs to diversify, because shareholders will like it (demand it). Their competitors are also moving rapidly. Being the operator for the cash cow .com TLD may end some day as well.

    Here's a related thread, which, combined with this thread, will give some additonal insights:

    BD my advice is not to ask these guys what they think is a good investment, 90% of them are prideful, and will say ONLY .com is a good investment; when me and a few others have gone out and proven the value of exact match keyword GTLDs, which I believe are starting to further advance >>>

    This whole idea is like a puzzle, certain pieces are coming to fruition, that these same guys laughed about 6 years ago; when I debated .xyz growing to be the number one GTLD

    I was right then ^ and I am right now, I am telling you, that if you invest in domains, focus on keyword matching domains wether they are .com or exact match keyword combination GTLDs like these examples I co own

    mortgage.loans - https://mortgage.loans

    easy.credit - https://easy.credit

    e.credit - https://e.credit

    And further, I will add ... don’t end up like these guys, manipulated by the very monopoly that holds the keys to the future of domain investing as a whole ... do you think Verisign had any regrets in using Nu Dot to purchase .web for $135M in 2016 ... they’d been telling everyone else not to invest in GTLDs, working with ICANN to insure that they cannot be competed w/

    Banks did the same thing 5 - 10 years ago, telling investors and consumers to avoid crypto currency, and to avoid BTC, 10 years ago it was trading at ¢8 a coin ... now it’s $63K ... who do you want to be ? The guy that knows what’s going on and is ready for the “next big thing in the internet” or the guys in this thread getting rich telling people that .com is the only way while Verisign is literally planning for the inevitable ...

    I do not just think it, I simply know it.

    The TLD .top lives indeed up to its namesake just because it is named so (aside the point you wrote "... seems to think ..." you nailed this) and this is the only criteria that counts in this case.

    Words have meaning - and the meaning of "top" is "top" and that's why it is top, 100 %, everyone can see it (most don't want to see it though).

    I further don't care about "ships that sailed" because ships come and go with the wind (also in case they have motors) but .top remains as top in the strongest storm while .com remains as not top.

    This is really highering the quality of our threads to the point of a serious wake up because my posts are genuine participation.

    +++

    Insanity (my analysis may sound complicated but it is a correct sentence, a slowly read is recommended (reading only the black parts without the grey ones may also be helpful)):

    Writing about me (who writes about the .com market (and therefore about circumstances that have influence to it) in a thread whose topic is about the .com market (and therefore about circumstances that have influence to it)) in a thread whose topic is about the .com market (and therefore about circumstances that have influence to it) instead of writing about the .com market (and therefore about circumstances that have influence to it) itself and expecting that this will change the fact that .com is not top.

    The world has million colors my friend. dot com is one and dot top is another out of million.
    Without all the colors, the spectrum is meaningless. Some colors may dominate, some colors are preferred, some are rare and some are scattered. But all are important for the balance.
    Someone may be obsessed with one color but should not challenge other one's color preferences.

    If someone's world starts at "T" goes through "O" and ends at "P", then my friend that someone needs a wish and a blessing "Get Well Soon".

    Well friend, with that logic, I think....

    .Info are only informative all others are a joke
    .live are only living all others are dead
    .biz are only doing business all others are doing charity
    .auction are only selling all others are donating
    and soooo on...

    Banged and Nailed and Blasted and Scattered all at once...
    Logic is intangible. Yet occurs.

    Brother the place we are at is information and experience sharing platform. I jumped in back in Dec 20 and you did a month before me.
    What I do here? I read, learn, ask, thank, share, approach, read more, discuss, learn more and thank again. There are number of Gurus here who are doing this for over 2 decades.
    The day "I" feel like I can challenge everyone on every post on every statement I use my keyboard for, I'll think about what's more to learn? Nothing? I know everything? Then the next question I'll ask myself would be, Do I really need to be here on a "Learning Platform" if I already "know" everything...

    Don't mind, it me talking to "Myself"

    Take care.
