    Do you think there is ever going to be any extension that will surpass .COM, even at a price like $0.01 or something?
    Clearly, .COM has the appeal and the first mover advantage, so my answer would be No.

    Your thoughts and reasoning?

    Nope.

    Not for a looong time, as .COM is so ingrained.

    Hi

    why are you spamming this section with multitude of erroneous questions on same day?
    there should be a limit on number of threads one can create here, in a single day.

    imo...

    Thought it was ironic, the man who started a thread about new domainers being super optimistic.. creates a thread about every possible thought that crosses his mind.

    I agree, let's curb the enthusiasm a bit on the barrage of new threads and at least learn to use the search feature to contribute to already existing threads.

    The simple answer is No, for long time , Its like a case on mathematic :

    No > Yes

    Most of people said :

    Doman = Com

    Com = Domain

    No one TLD will overtake .com, but new TLDS will become more common over time. From an investor standpoint, .com will be King for decades to come.

    Two type of shocks may cause a shift:

    - A political one
    - Radical change of internet protocols (end of domaining?)

    I always wonder Who buy use and sell Tk domains? Tk means Taka in our country which is our own currency.

    Anyone sold any tk?

    Lol, you are really a troll...
    But if u ask me in poker, would someone with 20k chip have any chances of winning the 100k one? Yes, that happens.

    Based on facts, figures and observations we have today, the answer is No. Things might change in future.

    Well ever is a long time, so I voted yes - it is possible some TLD would surpass .com in registrations. I am not sure that in 20 years we might not see a country code like .in or .cn challenge, or possibly some new entrant to new gTLD that comes in with very deep pockets and plan to make it dominate. One tech giant comes to mind...

    That said I do not see any TLD having more registrations than .com in the years I will be in domain investing.

    Registration numbers by themselves do not mean much - .tk is high because they were (or still are?) given away free under certain conditions, like you get some traffic but not too much traffic.

    I agree with @biggie that some restriction on how many threads can be started by the same person within some time period probably makes sense for all NamePros members.

    It doesn't matter. You start these threads almost everyday. Is .co better than .com, is .org better than .com
    It. does. not. matter.
    Just do whatever makes you money.
    You can make money on .com
    You can go broke on .com
    You can make money on .in
    You can go broke on .in

    Same with any TLD

    Nobody knows the future.
    The WWW and the HTTP protocol is getting old now.
    It seems new, but they have been a while.
    And the way things change, they will hit you from the offside.

    Did you ever think the Kodak/Konica/Fuji can die overnight.
    Did you think all the small ubiquitous olympus/Nikon/sony digital cams will be replaced by phones and gopro

    The we way we connect are also getting slowly evolved.
    If all of a sudden navigating for information and transaction via a browser becomes obsolete, then we will be left holding bags of useless strings of characters,

    Back in 2012, I sold 7 figures worth of websites to start a An App that can navigate other apps.
    Thinking that will be the future of the internet.
    It didn't quite workout.

    The web became better and better. But you never know.

    Everything changes so fast.

    And you are trying to major in the minors.
    None of your questions will make you a better domainer.

    You should be asking questions like, how to to targeted outbound, how to pick winning names consistently from the after market, what are the upcoming trends when I can take a small punt, what the easy hand regs that can be flipped for $99-499 to keep the cashflow coming. How to price my domains. How to manage my finances, How to manage sell through and portfolio, how to improve my life in general, what are the other side gigs I can do while I improve my domaining game

    And yet everyday one more questions trying to confirm your bias about .com

    It doesn't matter.
    A lot of people sells all kinds of domains

    Nikul just sold a couple of .co as you speak
    DNgear just sold a could .xyz as you speak
    Federer just sold a few .de as you speak
    and then the holo guys, the vr guys, the cbd guys, the defi guys, the crypto guys,. the .in specialists, the .us specialists, the .ca specialists, the .com.au specialists, the .co.za specialists.

    Even most of those questions have multiple discussion threads. Plus, he’s asked similar questions before.
