Will 5N patterns .vip or any gTLDs be worth anything?

    I'm referring to aesthetic patterns which are pleasing to the user such as 14741 and things of that nature. Do you guys think they are worthwhile or ever will be?

    Short answer: yes
    Longer answer:
    They already are and I actually redirect my ".com" to my new domain name. I wrote an article in this regard on CircleId but I suggest you to have a look at increasing registration numbers. Check "New gTLD reports" at Jovenet Consulting.

    There are several reasons why it is not a waste of money:
    1. Some users are domainers: they are people who create a website and need a domain name;
    2. Difficult to find an available ".com" domain name;
    3. ".com" domains offer no precision: for example, a domain name ending in ".club" offers that little thing that it is noticed instantly in the domain name (but I perfectly understand a club who buy a longer ".com" domain name and add 4 more letters in his second level domain;
    4. Do you think you will lose traffic because you don't have your ".com"? The reason is "no" because you will work on your new domain name SEO and at some point, Google will do the rest. You will probably please a domainer who will get back to you with a: "hey, do you want to buy this ".com" for $10,000?" You will just not answer because you don't care and the guy will keep getting back yo you once a year with the same question.
    New gTLDs: registration figures are increasing ;)

    Time will say new gTLDs are total flop. I do not know why gTLDs were introduced with so much fanfare. The real usage percentage of these gTLDs are not even a fraction of one percent of the total registered domain names. People wasted a lot of money on them. Within a year or two, 90% of the total gTLDs registered will be DROPPED. PERIOD.

    I don't think it is pleasing at all. The Chinese do things differently and have their own logic which is hard to understand.

    why .vip?
