The big change in domain names
Like any investor, domain investors are looking to buy low and sell high. Single domain names have been sold for tens of millions of dollars. Unfortunately, the early days of the .COM gold rush are over. There are 127 million .COM domains in the world today, and a smaller and smaller percentage of that is made up of high-value domains.
This doesn’t mean it’s the end for domain names as investable assets. In fact, a new wave of domain names have hit the market today that are reminiscent of the early .COM boom. The difference is that this new supply of domains ditches the meaningless .COM ending, and replaces it with relevant, contextual keywords like .LIVE, .VIDEO, and .NEWS.
New domains have a variety of uses, from personal branding (.FAMILY, .BAND, or .ROCKS), to specific business verticals (.SALE, .STUDIO, and .GAMES), to valuable, highly targeted professional categories, like .LAWYER, .ATTORNEY, .DENTIST, and .CONSULTING.
