    I don't know Bob, maybe! But I'm not sure what this has to do with the domain's registration. Someone bought it today maybe or in the past week

    The domain lasts available for registration in 2018. So there is no way someone going to register it recently.

    I don't do attacks haha. :xf.grin:
    I agree with your observation .vc commanding higher prices and see more of it.:)

    I don''t disagree with @Samer opinion the extension may come back down. We need a don't disagree response! :xf.cool:

    Right now a few investors view it as POSSIBLY something like .io in the early days. It is interesting to read the .io thread on NamePros from years ago where people were trashing those acquiring great dictionary words, domains that now would easily be 5-figure names.

    I was not at the last in-person NamesCon about a year ago, but understand there was chatter amongst some distinguished investors around possible growth in .vc. If it becomes more the "in thing" to be on a .vc, then I think one advantage is that low to mid $$$$ will not scare off investment firms as a reasonable price, unlike some sectors that don't seem prone to pay much for domain names.

    It is encouraging that a new high for a sale in the extension has been set with the ParkIO sale just closed.

    While I could only find a handful of examples outside venture capital when I researched it some months ago, there are many other possible uses of the combination V and C. I think a bit of chance it might take off like .io has expanding first from a narrow coding base to now more general purpose use. I would say odds are against that, but not impossible.

    ICYMI Jason Sheppard sold a couple of mid $$$$ ones on successive days, and we talk about that, among other things, in this interview. He is dominantly invested in .com, but did have success with a rather limited total investment in .vc.

    In researching for that article I looked around at what .vc are currently being used. Here are some examples, in case anyone interested. I could readily have listed at least hundreds, and that was many months ago when I did the research. Venture capital is a strongly growing sector, many of the companies are sort of small in terms of people, there could be a lot of opportunity. And there could not, too.

    PS Disclosure I do have some .vc names in my portfolio. I have so far only had one offer and not sold any. That may be correlated with fact some of them I don't even have landers up :xf.eek: or listed on marketplaces. Shame on me!! The ones I do have landers, seem, in general, to get fewer visits compared to other names I have at Epik. But that might just reflect bad name choices on my part.:lookaround:

    I will only register a .vc if it's promo, should be a common English word that is at least registered in 390 other extensions.

    Yes you’re right! Hey what tool do you use to check if the domain is registered in other extensions or not? I’m curious

    This is a crazy theory, (just for fun) hear me out:

    Maybe due to the recent Bitcoin prices, a lot of people "gained" a lot of money & now want to become investors/venture capitalists, thus the increase in demand of .vc registrations :p

    Climate.VC is a one-off sale, it's highly unlikely that some VC bought it. And they forgot to register ClimateVC.com first.

    In my experience, VCs are usually very STINGY and PENNY PINCHER kinda folks not willing to spend more than about $2000 even on great domain names. At the max, it goes to $5k-$10k with those highly motivated.

    Yes I agree.... But some domaing that claim to be expert will surely goes against this...

    I remember 2020 when I was playing around and I found that husband.vc has not been taking.... I just register it may be who what may happen tomorrow.

    Some who call them self expert here started laugh at me saying until women is been given money to men for marriage before such domain could sell.

    But sometimes lucky and trend also contribute to some domain sale irrespectful of the extension...

    That is just my submission....
    .....lot of domaining believe that is for venture capital....
