    Its $69.99.
    You pay the fee, whether you get the domain or not.
    They'll do everything they can to get it, within your budget.
    Their first tactic will be to present an offer and wait for it to expire without saying a thing even if you counter or send messages.
    If your budget is $2000 and owner accepts $300, you pay $300. + the $69.99 fee (paid upfront).

    This .Best Registry is becoming too desperate, using all tricks in their book to try and trick Domain Investors into buying their .Crap

    He is just shilling / hyping .best
    I think people are paid here to tell nonsense stories about .best offers and sales. I now find it everywhere on NP. Fake hype.

    While I totally respect that there are numerous legitimate reasons to not be fans of the .best extension (only modest number of registrations, only tiny number of resales, not a wealth of real sites yet using it, to some semantic issues, to name a few) I would like to humbly request that just because a member is keen on this extension that does not give people the right to falsely claim that he is being somehow supported by the registry to promote the extension.

    By all means express your view on the TLD, but let's leave personal attacks out of this, please. Anyway, just wanted to explain why I used a dislike, something I do only very rarely on NPs, with respect to a post a bit earlier in this thread.

    Bob

    I can't believe someone actually got a dislike from @Bob Hawkes , I never thought I would see the day. :xf.laugh:

    Everybody hypes what they are in to, that could be .com's, ccTLD's, new gTLD's, whatever.

    I don't think the OP has any more connections to a registry than the rest of us.

    Just keen on this extension? Or brag with false numbers? I have nothing against enthusiasm but, this is something else.

    Thanks, I guess, for posting but I am a little perplexed. What do you mean by brag with false numbers. Could you please quote anywhere I have done that and i will be more than happy to respond. Thank you very much.

    I will though respond to your "Just keen on this extension?" assuming you mean it for me - if you mean it for the OP, despite the quote, I will of course let him reply, but here is my answer.
    • I invest in a variety of extensions. In my portfolio I have from the legacy world .com, .org, .net, .info and .pro, with more .com than the others although I am keen on potential for .org.
    • Within country codes I invest in .ca, .co, .me and .pw currently. I track .io but do not hold any now. I don't have more than a few of each.
    • I hold many different new extensions, including .best now. I have been keen (due to niche interests) on .space, .science, .site, design and .online. I also like phrases possible with .fun, .life and .world and have a number of each of those. In some words I see that the .icu can match and hold some. I have a small number of .xyz. I had a few more .top in past than currently but still have 4. I have high worth words in .gdn, even while recognizing the extension is troubled. I have a few of many different other extensions (even a .monster! :xf.cool:) where a great match of the word with the extension is available at reasonable cost and renewal.
    I am interested in many things in the world of domains, so like a diverse portfolio that mirrors that. So to simply answer your question, the .best extension is a rather small part of my portfolio, both in numbers and in dollar value. As I stated earlier, I consider it has potential but is risky and speculative.

    So what do I think of best? If you go earlier in this thread you will see my views written in a pro and con way. Among the cons I see are lack of resales, lowish registration numbers, poor suitability as the core domain for a business in most cases, over promotion by registry which has turned off domainers in general, relatively sparse meaningful website use so far. Among the pros I cited a widely searched word, flexibility with various parts of speech, not many high value terms reserved by registry, works well in domain name phrases, well suited to review/reference sites. I would share a few names I have and like, but don't want you to consider I am hyping names.

    Please let me know if this does not fully answer your question, @DT13 . Thanks for reading.

    Bob

    @Bob Hawke

    I'm talking about the op. You said you can't blame someone for just being enthusiastic about an extension

    My awnser was
    I have nothing against you and I don't call you a brag the, the OP is. I respect everyone and think it's good to be open to other extensions. I just think that too many fake numbers are thrown around when it comes to .best. There are more threads like this on NP, pure Shilling and hyping. People who make such stories in the crypto world get paid for it, so why not with domaining.

    Thank you for your reply and clarification, @DT13
    If I might respectfully suggest if your problem is with numbers, respond specifically to the numbers you object to, rather than make claims that a NPs member must be paid as you did in the post I objected to...
    I think there is a lesson here for all of us. It not only is unfair to the person, but also simply ineffective to making your argument, to call names, post derogatory meme images, or claim someone is being paid or dishonest.

    It is totally appropriate to respond to make sure that anyone reading a thread has a balanced picture. Smart people legitimately have different views on many things in domains. Hearing all voices is valuable. But please, everyone, let us all express those via making arguments about the topic, and not be personalizing.

    Have a good day everyone, and thanks again for responding, @DT13.

    Bob

    I love best and only have 4 of them. I still shun threads like this, misleading. I will joke about .best being good and bad, because there are points for both sides! One thing though, don't accuse unless you know 100% - otherwise it's assuming and will get you in trouble.

    Since we .best proponents don't care about order :xf.cool: I tried to register est.best which is surely as good as best.est :xf.grin:, but alas someone has it! :xf.sick:
