Moving on from the 3D, Cloud , NFC, Marijuana etc....trends, what do people think will be the next big money maker for the domainer?

I have a few Big Data domains but I like my hand in several dishes so if anyone would like to share their thoughts I'm sure a lot of domainers would appreciate any insights to what's gonna be hot or not.

Cheers

In addition to Big Data and 3d Printing I have a few domains for light emitting materials like:

LightEmittingPanels.com

LightEmittingShirts.com

LightEmittingWindows.com

LightEmittingFabric.com

LightEmittingGlass.com

Now there are no light bulbs in these, this is where the material itself emits light.

I also have a few domains for Heads Up Display (HUD) Like:

HudContacts.com

HudContactLenses.com

IntelligentSunglasses.com

IntelligentHelmets.com

Wearable devices....

Google glass

Smart watches by Apple

Fitness/Health related wearable device that works with your smartphone apps. These devices constantly monitors some aspects of your health and communicates it to your doctor through apps.

and

Internet of things. This is something that will make every device in your house connect to the internet and also make it smart.



I don't own any names in these trends.......just fyi

The Internet of Things will not only be "the next big thing", but will very likely be the Biggest Thing EVER!

Including the present web itself... as there will soon be more "things" connected to the web than people.

This Internet of Everything will fundamentally redefine "domaining".

Although Internet of Things is huge, but how does that translate to product or services that people are going to actually need and search for.

Good question. I'm guessing more on Apps side where you can control the products and/or services in your house, office, car using your smart phone apps.

You already get Light Bulbs which can be regulated/controlled using your smart phone / tablets.

It can also be software products that helps with analyzing the data generated by all the things which are smart and connected to the grid.

Hmm I would be very surprised if the majority of domainers have not lost money on all those trends and the countless domain fads before.

if I knew that i would already be rich.

If I knew, I wouldn't be posting it here on a forum.

...I dunno, President Obama created a market with the Administration's revamp of the healthcare industry and how insurance companies will function and be paid, but I really am not following it all that much...

Was a little late but got some of those. Had some mid x,xxx offers on one of them, but holding out for more.

Probably most do lose money from seeing some of the names, however some that pick good names can make money by looking ahead. If you have some good Marijuana names, very possible. Even smaller stuff. I remember checking out CES and getting mirrorless cameras, when they were still only being sold in Japan, but I knew they were coming over to the U.S. Got it at reg fee, but have had offers in the x,xxx range. There is money to be made looking ahead for some people.

True, so the next big trend will be losing even more money on new TLDs.

Internet of Things - big but how do you translate that to domains?

RFID, tags and so on - most names taken but not valuable, so far anyway. Domains with Smart in them might be big.

I would say that a new product or service that people are going to be interested in and would actually use or buy is not a fad. With everything under the sun having already been registered the future trends and technologies is one of the only opportunities that is still available to domainers with low budget who are willing to do some research to find the right niche. IMO

PS: I don’t condone registering domains related to recreational drugs, but I see nothing wrong with registering domain names related to new technologies that can make our lives better without killing or enslaving others or damaging the environment.
