    Pod related transportation is picking up steam in India once again. Does this mean exciting times ahead for people holding POD related domain names once the system goes on into development phase? :)

    Several news sources:

    Asia's richest person and his company has invested in SkyTran suggesting that this is where future transportation will head.. Some news sources even went ahead to compare Asia's richest man (Anil Ambani) with the founder of Tesla & SpaceX, Elon Musk. Interesting for related domain name owners..?

    I love it when something you have held for years gets a new and unexpected lease of life.

    Agreed.

    I have the following which was a $6 hand reg back in December.

    Ai-Pods .com

    I shall hold on to this for as long as I can but if someone makes me an offer I can't refuse, then I will not be held accountable for my actions and I will definitely sell it lol.

    Why do people need a pod domain? Once pod.com and pods.com have been taken why would someone need pod+keyword if it's just a taxi, not sure what market there is tbh, more of a market in pods with regards to small homes for renting? PodCentral.com recently sold for $7,000 and is just a business communication center. Can't see a mass market or if someone can prove otherwise I would be happy to change my mind. I will add that these pod taxis just go round on a track, just a hop on hop off service?

    I guess the real question is..."Why does anyone need any domain name?" There are too many variables to answer your question or mine but all I do know is that I don't know. Sometimes we don't need to understand but we can count the money received regardless. My third sale ever was last week and it was for mid $xxx and was the second highest recorded so far for that extension and I would say I would never have imagined that name selling above some of my other domains.

    I think a few more good pod sales would convince me more tbh, just dont see a mass market for them, I do with regards to pod homes. Time will tell I guess, would be happy to participate in a pod thread and showcase if anyone fancys making one.......might even buy 1 or 2 if things develop more in pods

    I think it will have less possibility for pod transport names....

    The name POD central is a great one and definitely purchased for the purpose of Print On Demand niche.

    POD is many things...there is big market and huge demand for print on demand...it is also used for book publishing... usually self publishing book companies.

    Either way pod is already a valuable keyword and will only increase its value in future no matter what the purpose it is used for...only we need to remember is the word combos should make sense.

    Thanks,
    Ravi

    I see POD TRANSPORTATION or HOMES/HOTELS as a huge opportunity in near future, for business in these segments, when technology evolves with time and that’s when you might see actual sales starting to happen.

    Right now, market for such keywords in its nascent stage and not just there yet!

    Ravi, just so to understand this better, why do you see “less possibility for pod transport names”? I might be missing something or else these companies out there won’t be spending billions on the concept...

    Manmeet ji...

    I think it is possible some sales might happen for that purpose...but it will take very very long time.

    And the possible sales could fulfill publicity/marketing purpose names.
    We don't know yet how the service is provided...I doubt if there will be multiple operators in this field...it can be only govt run service.
    And I think tickets/tour packages can be a possible opportunity for business and thus some names in this area.

    Manmeet I am certainly not that experienced...and I am learning from you (in telegram group) :)

    Just thinking out loud and not seeing huge opportunities at the moment...maybe it's too early to even judge it.
