    After decades of development,.Com domain name has been basically saturated, and there is no good investment opportunity in the existing market like before.So..

    Which suffix do you think will be the next .com and why ?(Or close to its height)
    Or
    Do you think the domain name system will be replaced gradually ?By what?(Within ten years)

    Welcome to leave your opinion.

    hmmm interesting question.

    I've always been partial to the idea that someone should buy a cheap island somewhere in third world country.

    Call it Victoria Royal or Rainbow or Raven or even Virtual Reality.

    And then apply for .vr domain extension

    plenty of companies using the "suffix" of VR to make .vr valuable.

    Hard to replace the .com

    Probably won’t ever happen, but I do agree that the .vr domain has a lot of potential especially with everything being in Virtual Reality in the future.

    I mean just look at .to and .io

    Also, I remember watching a tv show once where some native fishing village were processing clams and shells for food and just dumping them in the middle of the ocean that at some point there was so many shells that it created an island.

    Don't know what the rules are as far as getting a status of your own island country but this would work. lol

    I think the domain name system will be OK, but the number of CN may be close to COM.

    A lot of people told me that some of them have no customers. I think it's a market problem. The demand for domain names is shrinking. After all, there are not so many new start-ups every year, and the demand is limited. The trading between middlemen is also an important part of the domain name market. Therefore, it is less likely that the domain name system will be replaced in a short time. After all, the number of existing users is huge.

    The number of startups in general have increased over the years up until 2019. The chart below shows around 250,000 business startups per quarter in the US. So right around 1,000,000 per year. That is big.

    There will always be a percentage of the population that are business owners.

    In March, at the start of the pandemic, I had my highest sales month in my 17 years of domain investing at over $40k. Once things get back on track, I don't see anything as declining.

    :xf.grin:
    I had an exactly same idea in mind:xf.grin: but due to it must be a country tld so I think it’s lack of international image. Another reason is that China restrict using other cctld as legit domain name except.co so it’s gonna lose 1.3 billion potential end users.

    so I tend to invest .xyz it’s 3D axes in animation engines and I think it make sense for vr.

    There never will be but there will be reasons to buy other extensions whether geo targeted industry targeted or exact type ins and reuse of popular keywords.

    What i think we will see is a boom in dot US when people realize they want to keep some of the money in house rather than trying to just own the internet. Dot com will always have some power over any extension.

    I think we have more than enough extensions already.

    I strongly believe that .com will remain the commercial king, followed by its gTLD siblings Org, Net, Edu, Gov, Mil, and country codes.
    People trust the extensions they know.
    There are some newer extensions that I just won't click on for various 'trust' reasons.

    OMG!

    This from Wikipedia page on GTLDs (2011):

    Criticism

    Following the vote to expand gTLDs, many trade associations and large companies, led by the Association of National Advertisers, formed the Coalition for Responsible Internet Domain Oversight. The coalition opposes the expansion of gTLDs, citing "its deeply flawed justification, excessive cost and harm to brand owners." In a statement to the US Congress on December 9, 2011, National Restaurant Association vice president Scott DeFife stated, "Even beyond the financial toll the gTLD program will exact on millions of U.S. businesses, the Association believes that ICANN’s program will confuse consumers by spreading Internet searches across hundreds or even thousands of new top-level domains."

    Another opponent is Esther Dyson, the founding chairperson of ICANN, who wrote that the expansion "will create jobs [for lawyers, marketers and others] but little extra value."

    I really love it when a "discussion" is started with a wrong preamble
    stating something which is not true
    and then start a manipulative discussion

    you should think of a career as a politician instead of a domainer career

    I think if you can get the wording right for its applicable application. And you really do need the mindset of a developer to run with this one. Then dot App still has a lot of legs. You are going to have to keep your eyes on the mobile world and strictly run with the domains/words where there are multiple competing applications. The mindset that will be required is to focus on the USERS outcome experience in the wording and of course very short.

    No I don't own any .App extensions myself.
    Buyer beware though, nothing is going to replace .com as the be-all in the foreseeable future
