Its enough that we were treated like thieves with their attitude ! They can do their special EAP pricing so domainers cant get in early. They can set very high prices on renewals..but we can stand TOGETHER and say ENOUGH! Its time to BOYCOTT THEM (!!) Time to BOYCOTT new gTLD's !! Part of the plan would have been for us to create their secondary market by us buying their not top Premium names and then reselling it in the secondary market. We would be the agents to create awareness too. Enough of that! WE are being USED by THEM ! Facts: 1. As of now after launch Many Premium names have still not been sold. Including .mom, .poker, .casino,.cars/car/auto etc… 2. There is lots of Choice. 3. The different industries which those extensions target are not running after them! 4. The market is basically dead at this stage. Very few real End user are buying those premium names at any high price. We all know the marketing fluff and buzz and “constructive” deals etc… We had spoken to major players in those industries, and they prefer their .com. The smaller players in the forums within those fields also dont want to move away, and definitely not spend the money the Registries want. The price is way to high and doesnt make sense. Some of the new extensions have been bought out as their model hasnt worked! 5. Beyond that, as a domainer I would like to buy some Premium names from other owners or just buy from the Registries directly. However they are charging for renewal and transfers a very high price. This is done across the board for all Premium names within most Registries. There should be a CAP and as of now its seems like a Cartel! We have seen strange things – the Registry price is secret but each Registrar contacts the Registry to figure out the price, and then up it by whatever they want! 6. If they want people to continue buying some of their names for a high fee, they need to allow for a Secondary/after market to exist (!!), as that would give more value and more awareness, which would enable them to to sell for a one time high price. They need to allow there to become a secondary market. 7. Otherwise there is to much choice out-there and you will end up like .tv did for a long time. 8. You need a healthy aftermarket for your names. However no domainer and most End users dont want to be stuck with high renewals or transfers. They dont care about your ROI plans. They compare you to .com and for a good name would be willing to pay a bit more for a renewal or a transfer. As in $100 but not $1000. As is they will be dishing a one time high fee for the Premium domain. They cant get the budget for renewals too. You dont realize how it works. Wake up Dontus,Uniregistry !!. They can excuse a one time high expense but to get approval from their finance Dept. for a constant high renewal wont work! 9. As of now End users arent buying into this and domainers wont if they cant sell them due to high renewal/transfer prices. 10. Bottom line- there wont really be an after/secondary market which is what they need unless they drop renewal/transfer rates. Droping those prices on registrations would be great, but they still need to make an impressive ROI.. so they might as well keep those.. However make sure that all past registrations of Premium domains and future ones wont require a high renewal/transfer price. Rightside, Uniregistry, Donuts – you need to rethink this ASAP! Time for holding ourselves back and not buying any new gTLD's until there is a firm commitment and change. Rightside is already working on that but its not enough! Donuts and Uniregistry need to join in !
