    Hello Pros.,
    I frequently see in your comments here: "this extension is dead".
    Usually it goes after questions about exact match domain names, from unexperienced domainers.
    So, let's make a list of these "deads", to aware the newbies not to invest in domain names who look pretty, but nobody is ready to give a penny for them. Please, copy/paste and add your thoughts in the list I starting here:
    So:
    1.mobi
    2.
    3.
    4.
    5.

    all estensions are dead except .com and .net
    the rest of extensions just have value with specific words.
    not all keywords match with .org and .biz and .info
    just spesific domains match with .io
    the rest are valuable just as hack-domains.

    1. .mobi
    2. .xyz
    3. .asia
    4. .info

    I had some one-word .info's with high search and high CPC, but no inquiries. I let them drop.

    Not quite dead, but dying

    .net (only one worders really sell now)
    .co (increase in price and confusion amongst users killing it)

    I am not sure those extension are in demand. You have to actually market the domains . You just wont get at price for them untill you dont work on them. Install any game or something.

    Price may be hurting .co, but I think endusers will user this anyday over a .net. Unless it's some premium one worder .net.

    I have to disagree with you on this one.

    .net is much weaker than .org IMO

    .net has become somewhat of a stagnant extension

    .org is used for organizations
    .com & .net could be any keyword
    .org just organization

    It's use just means .org is well established and always will be,
    .net is .com's sidechick.

    A bad one at that. Every startup founder that i personally know chose .co when the .com was not available. Some even went for .io.

    .net is laughable at this point unless it is a great keyword, like media.net etc...

    And honestly I can't even remember when I've been on a website that uses .net.
    most registered .nets are usually some empty page with chinese writings.

    NameBio indded shows .net in steady decline and .org in steady rise over last three years, I'm surprised to see that...

    I said match, not sold.
    .com match with any domain.
    .net also does the same
    The rest of extensions dont

    Yes, .EU is strange domain name and It's slowly going to dye.
    The CCtld's are much stronger than .eu.
    The same problems like those between EU and the member states.

    The reason for the dead is high renewal fees for these domain names.
