    It was an special great month for me in relation to .travel, also for offers, one from Singapore was very interesting but finally not accepted. Question is, I own around 100 .travel and I invest around 15-20% of my sales in new manual registrations always. My last 3 sales this month, around 8000$ are 3 manual regs. about 250$. Is a great ROI, and is like this since 2013 to sum up to 100.000$ with .travel sales.

    If you have only one...well, it's different, anyway, I recomend undeveloped.com, is generating good leads for me in last times.

    It's funny, really, all your 54 messages on Namepros related to this thread :) As I understand .travel registry hired you to promote them or you are from their staff? :)

    I checked namebio and most expensive .travel ever sold was internet.travel for $11,400 and I think even reg fee is too much for this extension and domain, it is funny how you made $100,000 just for 3 years :)

    My first .travel sale was Dec. 2014. Yes it's funny to make "up" to 100.000$ with .travel ...do you know key "up"? and it seems is close to 2 years, not 3 :) As I said I use to buy and sale .com too in range 5.000 - 25.000 but .travel are nice ones for me.

    Do you think internet.travel is the top sale?? hahahaha, the top reported, belive me.

    Not my 54 messages (55 with this one) are related to this thread, but yes, my interest is about .travel and it's not going bad for me :) I opened the threat I maintain the threat, I like to read about .pro, about .club, about...and yes, I write here about .travel, if you don't like don't read.

    After all, if you feel I am promoting, well, I am only reporting my sales and some news around .travel..as large owner, of course I have interest on it...but for sure is interesting for community.

    And finally, please go out, cleary you are not interested on this threat, do not waste your time.

    best wishes, and good luck on your sales

    note: please, do not quote me anymore...I know it could be an effort for you, but, I will be very thankful (here or in other threat :) ), understand I am a newbie, only 11 years inside domains industry...I will check your threats from my own to learn, do not need your replies. Thanks !

    Dot Travel has relaunched and now more people are able to register a .travel domain. We sat down with Byron Henderson and he answered questions about the .Travel extension.

    An interview with Byron Henderson on the .travel relaunch
    http://tldinvestors.com/2016/11/an-interview-with-byron-henderson-on-the-travel-relaunch.html


    The advantage of being a preferred extension by official tourism boards allows us to appear in privileged spaces: airports, TV stations, major sporting events. Each year there are many good examples, but one famous case was the tennis match between stars Djokovic and Nadal playing at Perito Moreno, the wonderful destination in Patagonia. Over the court, in constant view of the global audiences, was the domain name Argentina.travel.

    Another of mine:

    STL
    .TRAVEL

    The longer <ST LOUIS> version is owned by the city of St Louis, but they didn't have the foresight to pick up the common abbreviation (as you can see Atlanta did with ATL).


    I have eight .travel's now. Time to get some websites up and running soon. Anyone get around to that yet with theirs?

    Niels Steeman - Head of eCommerce and Marketing at Asian Trails: "We see the .travel domain as a trampoline, as an investment of the future, in addition it gives the company a clear identity in the travel sector "

    ¿How and when you met .travel and decided to work with us? What has been your evolution?

    It has been a natural evolution; a passion for travel and the dedication to deliver services that exceed expectations can also be captured with .travel. We have registered various domain names to protect our online name but nothing defines the business we’re in more than the .travel extension.

    Visitmeteora.travel: “Our domain is our brand identity and we are satisfied from our experience with .travel so far”

    [​IMG]

    We were so happy when we realize how many more benefits we could have with .travel solution. It shows the world that you are a travel and tourism related business and recognized as part of that community. It allow us to incorporate the domain to the brand and is by far the best solution for the travel industry.

    Only to say that as the euro / dollar exchange is 0.83 / 1. The registration for a .travel domain for example in galcomm, which has them at 89 $ (see http://www.galcomm.com/domain/dottravel/) is = to a nice 73 €.

    enjoy :)
