Interesting that for some of these gltds, registration fees are already a lot more than .com out the gate. And now with increased renewal fees, seems to be a big turn off. All the more reason to stick with .com, which has been reasonable priced for 20+ years.

really? what would we.do? renew 100 io names for year or 2.at old prices just cause its 10usd cheaper? I dont think that's good idea having no clue when our names.will.sell..
Lol what? I renewed more than 60 .io names on the 31st because I wanted to reduce tax burden. If I knew that they would increase, I would have renewed all.

Why? I have no issues renewing all my keeper names for multiple years even if they are expensive renewals.
Because even at 5% STR, I would still have to renew 95% of my names. (For my names that are keepers, and not some bulk promo reg), and why not now than latter? I am only adding an extra year to 5 percent names considering the arbitrary 5% STR.

the problem with com is most newer comers like me and most... it's hard to get com that can sell for 4 to 5 figures like many even handregs io and co can sell.

even xyz hype now is making money

For handregs, listen to podcasts featuring @Keith DeBoer and @MediaCode plus get the handreg email list @Domain Smoke.

well I didn't mean I domain since last nite.. but on large scale 7yrs tho intensive is still making me fairly new.

there is no way around. there is nothing to handreg in com minus few lucky trends now and then..u wanna make cash on com u gotta buy on markets.. whereas for io and co...espcially latter.. u can just reg..io was like this upto say 2 or 3yrs ago.too. now u cant really reg a good io

xyz has ton of hype with some big sales..but I think domainers paying 4fig for 1word xyz will get burned. u have to know magic to sell xyz for 5fig. and I dont mean beginner magic either

Respectfully disagree. You can handreg potential good names with time, patience and a good sense of research for trends (which aren't 'lucky' as the nature of life is that trends constantly evolve).

Even droplist/aftermarket names aren't a surefire way to sell super fast.

Finding sellable domains has been, is now, and will always be challenging.
