If you had $10 USD to spend, what would you register? .com, .biz, .org, .net, .co, .info, other?
Why?

Remember, you can register more than 1 if you can afford it.

Definitely a .com
I would invest some hours among dropped lists and I'd find something I could flip quickly for a profit; even a small one.

.Club, .Work

I'd find .Club on sale for $1.50... buy 3.. and then buy a few quality .Work names.

Good question. A few months ago I would have said a gtld, but after reading and watching the "pros" I'd definitely look for a cheap .com to flip first.
Short and brandable .com names seem to be the surest bet.

2 LLLL.biz and pocket $2.

The buyout is occurring on the same fashion as .org, and we all see how much those are worth less than a week after only Chips sold.
 
I would register a two word .com that makes sense and has at least three end users and try to sell it for a few hundred.

$10 isn't enough to risk on investments such as "chips."

Say that to the folks who purchased net and org LLLL chips.

I would have gone for a .com .
It's the safest bet among all.
There are 122 million .com registrations. There must be some reason behind it.

Whatever is trending...... i got in pretty late, so i kinda treat domains like I do penny stocks. You have to figure out your entry/exit points. Have a strategy. Don't be greedy, but don't leave too much on the table either. You have to figure out your own personal comfort zones/thresholds.
 
There are newbies that read this forum daily for advice and direction. Some who have only $10 to invest.

Is this the message we want to send to them? Register a .biz and .info, really?

We know you guys most likely hold strong positions in those spaces but let's not force a "buyout," let it happen naturally.

Some own 1000+ chips, when the buyout happens, they will make a fortune. What does the newbie make? $20 or so. When they can buy a solid name and possibly make hundreds or thousands, even a name with dev potential.

A chip limits you, no dev potential and it has 0 chance of selling to an end user.

Yes, especially if all they have is 10. A newbie is bound to make mistakes and register crappy domains; check the appraisal section. That's basically a newbie throwing away 10, when they can double down, earn $20 and follow this advice on 2 names at a later time when they obtain the proper knowledge to register something half decent.

0 end user potential, risky, but very high reward investment potential

I like your view on this. However, you have to decide if you are gonna be a volume or a gross person. Either strategy is fine. I don't see a reason to knock anyone for making 2-3x or more on their money. Volume is more tedious, but in any industry, it works.

I was thinking along the same lines as vickyhunter and would definitely only register a .com if I had to make a $10 investment grow.

Interesting to see so many opinions on biz, top, club, info ...certainly interesting domaining times!

The OP is asking what we will register if we had $10 to invest, he is not asking advice what he should register. Correct me if I am wrong.

I will definitely buy a .com! :)

Reason: Because it needs no proof why it's best. ;)

Wow... I just have to say this is one of the deepest responses to a "what would you do with $10" post. I was not emotionally ready or expecting it as I read down through. You can't just be dropping philosophical bombs about overall investment strategy in posts about using $10.
... Just sayin'. ;) :)

As for me, I actually did reg a few LLLL.biz today because, well, why not. It seemed like a good idea at the time.

Um yeah... But you can't get one of these for $10 anymore... At least I don't think so.

They're all reg'd... Your example one was reg'd in 2009. ;)
... Though maybe someone would sell you one with 0's or 4's for $10. :)
Not me, mind you... but someone. Maybe......
