    Well, one thing is that all of these sales taking up space on NameBio will definitely change the perception for domainers that these are investible and renewable assets to hold.

    So for that reason, whatever is happening is working.

    Why are all the xyz sales at the top of the Namebio page today even? Can you pay to have your sales listed first? They are not even the biggest sales of the day. Weird.

    The .xyz sales are at the top because they are the only reported sales on 2021-06-10 so far.

    Yeah....they're pretty good marketers, and sometimes that's who wins the race. I'm the jockey riding the .online horse and we're right behind .xyz. I took the reigns just a few months ago and we're catching up. It's turning out to be one hell of a race:xf.grin:

    NameBio shows (1) reported .online sale, for $304, in the last month. That is not much of a race.

    You really don't understand the BS that goes on in this industry do you? Try reading between the lines:xf.wink:

    Out of curiosity, how many .online domains do you hold by now? Must be quite a lot. Would you be willing to share some data, like in another post obviously not to derail this one.

    It would be a nice and valuable contribution to the forum to read the experience from someone trying his luck registering .online (or any other ngTLD) in bulk and getting some insight on the thought process during registration, volume, sales, traffic, acquisition cost, where to park, research. Things like that.

    I'm not much into ngTLDs but there is opportunity, this thread proves that. Had some moderate sales this year personally, in a variety of new extensions, which was pretty much luck/research. But never played the number game on anything beside gTLD/ccTLD.

    Even failed endeavours are valuable to share. There's this other thread about someone registering thousands of .xyz and miserably failed. Look it up, good read as well.

    Even though you're not always seeing eye to eye with some members here, I believe most would still appreciate a well written up thread about your venture in .online.

    Edit: I know you have this other .online thread but that one is all over the place :)

    That's a nice number :)

    I know. I personally am convinced you can make this profitable (or break even) but you gotta work hard the first year as unlike .xyz, you cannot renew a large sum of the portfolio due to ridiculous renewal costs.

    I know, reason I'm asking is not for me but for the community. People handregging thousands of domains in a ngTLD is not very common. You have something uniquely to share is you decided to post a nice article about it. If you can't/won't I understand though.

    No NameBio don’t do promotions on sale listings. It is simply the fact that sales get listed on NameBio when approved, and show by date. So a sale after the last posting time will show near top until the next posting time when the sales they have taken from auction sites etc. are added in, when all sales are then ordered by price.

    Dirk...i'm playing in a two day golf tournament starting in a few hours, but come Sunday I'll start a thread addressing why I own thousands of a single new gTLD's, and provide some insight into my marketing strategy. Also i'll share how I know that things like "renewal" registrations are negotiable especially if the registry you're partnered with believes you've got your chit together......gotta run Dirk. Later!

    Did you know? Xyz is a word in the Akkala Sami language, its meaning in English: "I don't have the money to buy a .com domain name".
