    It's all about making cents not sense, Uber could've bought Taxi.com or Cab.com but just look at those sites rotting away! Creative minds think outside of the box.

    I am not a supporter of new gtlds but I love it when people register them because it helps "us domainers" in terms of pigeon shi* theory :zippermouth:

    Firstly they don't want to be associated with the "Taxi" or "Cab" business. They have a different business model.
    Secondly, they wouldn't have been able to acquire those domains when they were a true startup anyway... Once they've developed a brand around "Uber" then nothing is more powerful than Uber.com....

    Completely different situation.

    They created a great .com brand though. Uber is such a strong name... Completely different situation.

    Chances are VacationRentals.com will acquire Vacation.Rentals when they sense threat from a "True Visionary Startup" but that's just a speculation....

    BTW in reality Uber's 87% contract drivers are x-taxi drivers, sheep's in lions skin. First hand experience & knowledge in Uber Black, X, Taxi and Freight which I can't share on this forum. I totally agree with you on BRAND POWER!

    Thanks for the video and update! I've shared it on my Facebook and Twitter as well.

    For me personally, these sales are such great news, as I have focused on new gTLDs since Feb 2014.

    Such anti-ngtld posts made by Rick Schwartz, Mike Mann as well as other big .com domainers resulted in losing the fortune in ngtld space to those who listened to them, and winning the fortune to those who didn't.

    Some folk will always say "content is king" So if you are able to create unique content and offer a viable service you are in with a shot. A couple of great sales do not make a trend at this point, However I do wish the buyer good luck and success!

    Oh the joys

    Already getting bods telling me my

    Above mentioned .rentals gtld

    Needs to get in the search engines

    Lol

    Doh

    I should really reply back and say

    How bout you actually understand what a long term domain name investor foes

    Eg buys it and does absolutely nothing with it and just sits on it

    And as such it does not need to appear in search engines

    i dont need website design seo or logo design and all that rubbish

    I may start using an email that charges website and seo and logo emails £50 per email to send the rubbish
