I really like some of the newer gTLDs and have some ideas for domains but of course all the ones I've checked are premium and have renewal rates of up to $300 a year. I'd be using the domains for personal use and wouldn't be interested in reselling or anything, but I'm not 100% sure I can justify that cost. I see it similar to paying for hosting or a service in that it's just money that I won't be getting back. However, I do have hope that over time the registrars might lower the rates on those domains, but I'm not sure how likely it is that rates on domains deemed as "premium" would also go down or even up. I'd definitely do it now if the cost of a premium domain went down to maybe $100 a year, but would probably stay away if it could go up and if the registrar could even take the domain back whenever they wanted. Thoughts?
