    I was lookong at other gTLD and ccLD to see if i could get any one words L, LL, LLL, LLLL of anything and its all taken! every where in all the gtld and cctld. So why everyone on the interenet sais to not invest in those? Everyone already invested there. I dont get it?

    Invest in the good ones... leave the mediocre ones

    The one word gTLD's have value, they have sold and domainers have made money.
    That said, they will never be a .com, and 2 or 3 word gTLD's will probably never pay off unless you hit exactly the right ones.

    JQXT.com will sell JQXT.biz or .internet will probably never sell

    It's not black and white and anyone generalizing the industry needs to do a little bit more research before posting.

    I have never invested in a gTLD but I am also not ignorant of the fact that a lot of investors have made some serious coin on them.

    most domains that are registered today don't have any value.

    there are far too many of them that is why. valuable names need scarcity.

    with LLL you have 17500 combos in one extension and 17 million in 1000 extensions.

    on average these can never be valuable, on average investors are losing money with these.

    I've lost money on .com, .net, .org, english words, non-english words, acronyms, 2 words, 3 words, numbers+words, numbers, chinese crap, cctld's, ngtld's... I've lost money on everything, but the most money was lost on ngtld's.. and I've made money from everything above too, and the most money made, was from .com. I now understand why they call it the king.

    I'm not sure there's a lot making serious profit.

    I remember this one thread started by somebody to hype their new gtld sales. This was the title of the thread:

    Just Broke $25K of gTLD Domain Sales in less than 12 months

    here are some of the first responses:

    Congrats on your sales !

    Nice sales.

    Impressive sales, congrats!

    until I pointed out - "$45,000 to make $25,000 is - $20,000."

    Yes, sold $25,000, but spent $45,000

    The thread starter hasn't been seen here in the last 3 months - https://www.namepros.com/threads/just-broke-25k-of-gtld-domain-sales-in-less-than-12-months.943015/

    I'm just not aware of too many NP members really doing good with these.

    I believe that it is still possible to find deleted .coms with some value - maybe $xx or low $xxx. If you can host them, and use a CMS to push a bit of advertising to make at least $1 a week, you can build a self-financing portfolio. If you can hang on, then maybe a few will sell for $x,xxx. In the meantime you can have fun hunting out the names, and it should pay more than doing crosswords. :)

    More important is the question for renewals, as not recouping all your investment in year 1 is normal for domains... 1500 names at about $20 average renewal will put him in red...

    HeHe, you are so right

    Goes right back to what I said in my first post....
    "Invest in the good ones... leave the mediocre ones"

    Trick is to find marketable domains without blindly registering thousands of domains.
    Even a monkey can register thousands of domains and come up with a few sales. Register a few domains and come up with the sales.... that is the art of the sale.

    A tip to remember: Not everyone on NP gives good advice. Some say buy new gTLD's because they might have bought some and now would like to unload them on you. Some say do not buy new gTLD's because they want to buy and they are cheaper with no competition.

    My grandmother use to say: Take all advice with a grain of salt. Don't know what that means but sounded like good advice.

    To know what sells, look at history of sales on Namebio. Try to spot the patterns of what sells for the gTLD that you might be interested in and also look at the average price of the sell. Than ask yourself, is it worth the hours you spend per day looking for one domain name to buy that might make you a $5 profit? If not, then look for gTLD's that are selling for higher dollars and therefore more profit.

    there maybe money to be made, but keep in mind you are competing against all the other 1,000's of new extensions when investing in the new gtld's. where with .com you are competing against other .com's for the most part.

    its a numbers game and it could get very expensive until you luck out and get a sale.

    .gtlds being trivialised by .commie cartel because their 'valuable' .com domain is being marginalised by more streamlined, better looking, better sounding, more luxurious domain options where available

    car.finance is simply better than carfinance.com

    digital.marketing is simply better than digitalmarketing.com

    I think you would need to hold the domain nearly double the time you hold it.

    I see potential in future, maybe next 7yrs
