    OP's premise is a little off. There will be no extension to be the next .com as it has already held up over the test of time and is universal and in the mass psyche, while other extensions only have niche interest. Also, I don't believe it's valid to say there is no good investment opportunity in .com.

    I like seeing the optimism for VR taking over as the next platform, but actually, I think .XR would make a lot more sense than .VR. I anticipate both will eventually come to be in the next 10 - 20 years as WebXR becomes widely used. But from a recent experiment, I can tell you all that people aren't ready for WebXR quite yet.

    Definitely .cyou

    It has just the right combination of meaninglessness and forgetablity to really give .COM a run for its money.

    Not... :ROFL::ROFL:

    I don't believe that there ever will be a new king unless there's a need for it. It might not be the Internet as we know it, but there will need to be some kind of unforseen evolution to knock it off the top spot.

    Some people thought that would be mobile apps, but it didn't happen.

    Support you, today's reading shows that the number of. Com is far more than the sum of other suffixes, which is the reality.

    If you are talking about next .com it should be using it in general and worldwide international purpose, I would say is .xyz, of course .com seemed the most branding choice due to its solid means Commercial , Company or Community, etc.
    The reason I say is .xyz because naturally it has rebellious potentials in looking it’s very bold and easily stand out of other extensions, I believe especially designers like it, the other clue is when I walk down the streets young people are looking more and more personalized and ego in their dressing, it’s obvious the whole world is getting neutral the color getting purple and the homos are rising up, also women leaders and presidents coming out.
    2. In natural I think most American don’t like words X and Y and Z (except tech industries) Because I see a clue that there are merely has those words in states, Texas is only one has X for example.
    3. There are many countries are developing out of US such as Africa, Asia, Middle Asia, South Asia etc. they are new internet populations in next 10years, they don’t have the same emotion that how the way American see .com, it’s like you knew “A-li-A-Do” in Japanese means “Thank you” but you don’t have any feeling per se, instead they like words X,Y,Z etc.
    4. The world is going more digital including digital currencies, VR, 3D, 5G, if next 10 years people consider their 2nd world is in virtual reality, I think .xyz will become next trends in domain world, I think it’s reasonable because .xyz the first adoption functioning as digital wallet, think of that if you play games in VR and you earn BTC and ETH in the game and cash out in Exchange, that would be definitely the 2nd real world and I definitely think it will happen in the future, right now the 2D games with crypto currency in online page is just a transitional period.
    5. Any domains want to mimic .com I think will fail eventually I don’t see why we need .co, just like I said before it’s fake Rolex, fake Rolex has good market in the world definitely.
    6. People say no matter what .xyz is meaningless it’s nothing whatsoever angrily, that the other reason I investing it, it’s too obvious why they hate it, because their heart can feel it.
    Above are the reasons I invest it not pig headed it.

    What matters is the delta and it is only 20-30 thousand × 4 per year per chart. And that is not just startups in tech meaning, but also mom and pop shops, landscapers etc who often work without a website or rely on an awful domain for business.

    I'm not following. Why would the delta matter if the number of new businesses keep rising?

    I only posted that chart because the OP was saying "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 chart shows they are not declining in any way whatsoever. There is a limited population here, businesses can't double each year (also shown in the chart).

    That chart is only births and deaths. We aren't selling to businesses going under anyway, right? If an old business drops a name, the incoming one still likely needs to buy their name. I realize many businesses don't have one, but even my landscaper has one.

    The demand is not shrinking, but also not growing by 250k a quarter, as there are also businesses dying and names get released back. The demand for investment grade names may be shrinking because there is so much trashy name choices, as well as mediocre name choices

    In next 10-15 years more people will work individually as freelancer based on new tech, some of domain values will have been scattered.

    So the use of domain names will increase.

    .ecom but like all domains will die. The use of domains is already lowering each month as apps replace them. For example doordash is an app very few go to the actual domain to order food. Facebook is a .com yet 99% of its users use an app. Uber very few use its .com just use the app for rides. Domains are the video rental stores of America thus domains too shall be very few and eventually none. Even the internet will die and be replaced by something faster and even more app friendly. We are seeing both the end of domains and the end of the Internet

    You're right. Maybe a lot of people refuse to admit it, but that's what's going on.

    Even though an app essentially need a domain name like house numbers, internet users and domain need will increase, but the bad news is the domain’s value will decrease a lot, Finally the winner is registries and registrars, the brokers and investors will be diminishing, famous companies still will prefer to have a good domain.

    I can't compare .com with any TLDs but I think .app and .ai is good for future. Thanks.

    The value of domain names is indeed declining, due to the emergence of apps and many new TLDs.
