    I did an evaluation of my domain name on Estibot and it gave me a favorable appraisal.

    Why is .link a trending domain extension?

    This particular new gtld is not offered by GoDaddy (the largest registrar). How can it be trending then? With such a "saying", I'd rather question why estibot exists - what for?

    Godaddy still rejects Uni / Unr ngTLDS

    .link .click; only good Uniregistry ngTLDs imo

    GD continue to reject all Uni-owned extensions

    I'm wondering what value you consider to be a favourable appraisal?

    If you have a superb keyword (see @NickB comment above) I imagine it would be considered sort of valuable eg: fashion, shop, news, etc.

    I admit to having purchased one on special recently through dreamhost... just for the novelty of back-linking to one of my coms.

    Good keywords.

    I think estibot is basing the value on keywords and not the extension.

    Godaddy appraisal says less than $100, and then goes onto say that movies is a high value keyword that has an average sale price of $2440.

    After looking at the values that @NickB has kindly provided, and taking into consideration the popularity of that term and exact keyword matches that you will get in search, I think that estibot valuation is probably quite reasonable!

    .link is a nice extension IMO, and if the keyword is right and sounds good with .link, while it is also for the good renewal fee, why not take few names.

    I have only 1 domain in this extension, sex.link, and I personally do not care whether .link is "trending" or about what Estibot says .. as the only important question really is: does the domain sounds good to most people, or not? :)

    Hi

    Estibot says .LINK is a trending extension

    and Simon says, stand on your head until your face turns blue.

    imo...

    I think so too. But reading rest of the comments here, .com maximalists don't want any other extension to be given a chance. Link is directly related to the internet space. People want to have 1 link for their various social profile. It can also be used to generic web address like adultmovies.link if .com is not available IMO.

    Nope, I purchased it on the aftermarket not long time ago. There is a small story behind it, and I was just approached by Theo from Domaingang to share it, which I did, so I guess in a few days more details will be out :)
