Will this happen for the very best dot coms? I don’t think so but everything else may very well be fair game. Whether we’re talking about lower quality dot coms, existing TLDs or new TLDS, this much is certain: there will be more and more competition when it comes to “next best thing” domains.
Who will benefit?
The consumer, the end user in our case.
Because end users will have more and more reasonably good options at their disposal and this has two obvious implications:
1) end users can simply move on to one of the many alternatives if they deem your domain too expensive
2) even if they don’t move on, they can use their newly found leverage to put pressure on domain owners
We might be in for a significant industry-wide profit margin adjustment when it comes to most domain categories.
Does this mean making money will be impossible?
Of course not!
It means one thing and one thing only: domainers might end up having to settle for lower profit margins.
