    How can we support the nGTLD,s ?

    let,s face it

    we all got some ( nice ) new GTLD domain names and we all can help to support them

    my best recommendation is more good videos and social media informations and blogs

    there are so many people out there even don,t know what a domain name is
    or that they can buy a domain name

    let,s focus and support the nGTLD,s

    the most important tool is the INFORMATION

    The best way to support them is by developing them so they get real usage.

    Another thing would be educating the registries on how to build a healthy TLD. A lot of them mess up and are doomed from the get go. It's not the endusers who are to blame.

    Poorly executed TLDs = no usage = no value.

    Have you already purchased a domain name? If ... enough to support them. Whether people behind registries support you or not, do you really want to spend your time without the payment. They’re in busine$$.

    (been there, trying to make a difference, they don’t care)

    The registries have spent millions promoting them, it does not create a lasting effect. With future releases all the good keywords, past sales, and high search words are tagged, and bagged as premium before they hit the shelf. Anything that is good that drops, most likely high premium renewals, is now going into direct reservation by the registries themselves so they can be the domainer.

    So why are you promoting their extensions for them, that is their job, as they collect the fees, and need to spend those funds in promotion, not to pay mortgages on out of city condos, or leases for luxury cars.

    There is nothing you can do with your megaphone, or the megaphone of namepros to attract end users in masses to gtld type domains, it is still a trickle effect, a little luck, and a lot of keyword integration, and trends that will fuel the sales.

    My ngtlds domain names get a way better traffic than old .com domains

    I bet a school lesson about domain names ( Internet ) would be great 😸

    Good points. It is really on the extensions to promote themselves.

    Many are just not viable as extensions, and others shot themselves in the foot by holding back the best names and/or shady tactics.

    I feel like most have already missed their window of opportunity. They need to get the top domains in capable hands if they want to make any traction. Just sitting on all the best terms in a ghost town of an extension is pointless.

    That’s why they keep coming back with these price rollbacks, and repriced premiums. The last one in October/November was a bust.

    So if all this doesn’t work, last action is go back to the base, and raise pricing on them, and keep squeezing them which is where we are at today.

    As Brad said they missed the point in time when they had some momentum by getting greedy, using loopholes, and just reserving, or marking everything of value with premiums.

    I remember the .guru launch, people were over the moon, the guy who had doctor.guru said he had a great offer after acquiring it in EAP to sell, but he was keeping it for the long term, and he paid $6 or $12K in EAP if remember correctly, one or the other. We had investment firms being created to invest in these, people were arguing because godaddy messed up assignments of names, you had gtld.link which has now gone offline formed.

    There are other big sales that have been done in this space that have not been reported, but it’s a premium play, you pay big in EAP, or you pay big in premiums to get those big sales.

    There are guys here who got some good names early, and they put in the work, and held consistent based on their convictions, and you know what, good for them, they deserve the sale.

    The end user sales will continue to trickle in, but the investment side still wants to talk .com. It takes a very broad diverse portfolio which is expensive to hit those big sales, otherwise it takes a lot of research, and a lot of years of renewals to carry those diverse portfolios that it exhausted some of the biggest believers in the space.

    To date the registries have been their own worst enemy. The registries need to understand the best form of advertising is natural, organic use, and development. Simple as that, you can’t used car salesman it, or bootstrap startup guys into these extensions.

    TV ads from endusers...
    I think, this is the best promotion...
    And in my country - nTLDs are not rare guests on TV...
