    We got 29 CEOs to tell us their one killer next nGTLD and the dot App is the winner. What's really interesting is that they think dot Hotel, dot Tour and dot Architect sounds better than a dot Com domain (more credible in the eyes of consumers). Btw, we bet on the wrong extension; dot Web. Ask around, and let us know your results.

    Why you asked CEO about Domain extensions? You could do better asking them about black hole formation. In my opinion the question should be addressed to domainers. And they will tell that they are all a bunch of crap.

    First off, you need to know that we choose the IT CEOs only and no one currently supports further nGTLDs expansion. They know more about the Domain Industry turmoil and ICANNs endless effort and how much time is needed for an extension to complete one full cycle of universal acceptance.

    Probably, it was available whole December'2016 for ~$100 (if I remember correctly their fee)...
    Was even banner on this forum...
    But then Registry stopped/postponed all regs on December'2017...

    And again, it was already available... they even heavily advertised on this forum in November'2016...
    100% it was possible to register .storage in December'2016... I have even planned a few but then avoided...
    Why Registry stopped - I don't know... ask them directly...

    Waist of time :) Everything goes as planned/discussed (ICANN). A couple of registries seeks to acquire more extensions and some to merger.

    You are right! Indeed, the previous registry Extra Storage Space managed to sell +/- 800 before the acquisition. XYZ stopped the process and reboot everything to standard reg fee and renewal .

    But standard fee was ~$100 (I really saw it)...
    Now it is ~$700...
    7 times increase after XYZ acquired them...

    At this rate, soon every dictionary word will be used as a nGTLD and we'll be on to two-word extensions. Crazy.

    Are they selling that bridge in Brooklyn again? ICANN is trying to placate those that believe that right-of-the-dot can be controlled. It can't. At some point everyone will expend all their resources trying to make fools-gold into gold and give up. I never thought sowing confusion coume be so profitable.

    There is no Land Rush, it's now Lock The Doiors.
