Labeled as poll in Domain Extensions, started by Michael Ehrhardt, Nov 28, 2016
I don,t think so...
I admit 2016 hasn't been a great year for me at least with new g sales but I'll continue on my current path as I'm a believer in them.
Legacy domains will continue to rule in 2017, .com etc. but we have seen the adoption of many new sites launched this year using new g's and other extensions rather the com. Not as fast as I'd like to see though.
Will the new g's ever break out big time? This is something no one really knows the answer to and this can't be compared to the old days as there's a new generation of domainers/end users coming online daily and things have been known to change quickly.
From what I've noticed, I've been guilty of this too, pricing is playing a big role in lack of new g sales. I've seen some outrageous asking prices for newly hand registered g domains lately. In 2017 I'm going to be a bit more flexible with pricing and I'll probably have a few more sales under my belt.
yes, until the registries start promoting these extensions, normal people will not realize that .xyz .gnd .lbgt even exist.
They have definitely created a dillema with high pricing or low pricing
Like building a new car, naming it .auto,not telling anyone, then trying to sell it to car salesmen at a higher price point than a ford.
More g's will fail than succeed. Ok, most g's will fail

How long will it take to even catch .biz? 365 names per year X 10,000 years = 3.65 million
There are some nice extensions, not enough to touch the king this year
All these new extensions are going to be a nightmare because of noobs registering names that are trade marked more often now. I think we had enough extensions before.
For example I did research on trademarks before purchasing NFSpeed(dot)com
"Need for Speed" is trademarked where nfspeed is not.
King is always King
.com will stick around; but in terms of popularity it wouldn't be the same as you compared it back 20+years ago. Old generation VS new generation, will simplify it for you; new generation startup co. always find improvements and unique ideas. New generation inquiry mind always want to know; and you can not stop them
Basically it all depends how much money they have to pay to keep their new extensions alive. They need to sell a boat load to pay for the domain extension registration. Who is buddy with who. You can find thousands of not bad .coms that have been dropped available for reg. I sure would not be holding too many new extensions. Some names do fit I agree but my core will stay .com
The king is alive and well. He shall continue to rule with his iron fist.
The domaining era is over.
I know ✔️
I think this concern would be better placed on issues like global warming.
Life is changing
That's my plan too.
Why do you say so?
cuz its true
there are tons of new gTLDs available..
it's changing, but not in 2017
Buying and selling GTLD is domaining too.
If google places value more on content than on domain keywords, then the value of domains will go down. Now, with social media links from fb, youtube, linkedin, twitter as ways to ptomote, it makes domains less relevant. Domains with typed in traffic will always maintain strong value.
Over all, I would say it's a down trend.
Also over time, more keyword domains will get bought and used up by endusers. So, there'll be less and less of the premiums in the domain market. That will eventually leave the domain market a smaller market. It the change will be gradual.
.Com has been established for as long as the internet has been around. There are a few extensions that can do well here and there but as far as any tld replacing the dominance of .com on the internet in 2017, that is ridiculous. It is way too early for that to happen especially with the last 20+ years of .com established already. Some killer keywords will always do well in a few of these new extensions but nothing at all equal to what the same keyword in .com would fetch.
By the way, out of your 6 domains in your signature (VR.Loans VRKinos.com VRGamesKing.com VRGameKings.com VRGamesKings.com VRHoloPortation.com), 5 of them are .com. Try selling any of those 5 domains in any other extension in 2017 and I am sure you will have your answer.
Will sex, beer, massage, sunshine still be king, of course.
Seems the more new gtlds you have, the more down on domaining you are. See how that works. 2017 is a new year, do it up right this time. Be down with the King.
