Yesterday, I wrote a post about the fact that in my opinion, geo new gTLD (especially city new gTLDs, as Christopher Hofman pointed out in a comment) are clearly outperforming niche new gTLDs (such as Dot Furniture) but wait a second… what’s a niche new gTLD?

I decided to start an interesting experiment as of today. If you are interested in my consulting services, I’m willing to help and in return, you have to make a donation to a noble cause.

4 new gTLDs entered the General Availability phase today:
Dot Reisen (Reisen = “trips” in German)

In my case, there is absolutely nothing to report when it comes to end user offers but then again, my new gTLD portfolio is quite small. Therefore, I’m hoping those of you with larger portfolios can chime in and let us know how things stand up until this point.

Pretty active week on the new gTLD front but I for one didn’t get any. Dot Wien was very tempting but the terms I found attractive were taken.

If you own short domains, you’ve probably received your share of lowball offers and it’s a known fact that such domains receive more offers than other domain categories but over the past let’s say 6 months or so, the frequency seems to have gone up quite a bit.

I’ve been thinking about a few very simple changes that might be worth implementing so as to boost end user sales and decided to run them by you guys.

Just like you have strengths and weaknesses in other areas of your life, they’re present when it comes to your domaining journey as well, so identifying the #1 strength/weakness would be a decent starting point in my opinion.
I’ll go first:

The General Availability phase for dot bid, dot trade and dot webcam started today. Did you guys register any?
I tried grabbing some dot bid and dot trade domains which represented good “left of the dot + right of the dot” combinations (in other words, domains which represent a good fit for their new gTLD) but didn’t manage to obtain the ones I was after, so I ended the day with zero registrations.

I’ve been pretty picky thus far, with 34 new gTLD domains (as mentioned in my 4 case study updates: update1, update2, update3 and update4) acquired up until this point.
By the end of 2014, I will probably end up owning about 100.
