As an investor, being open minded enough to change your opinion whenever the arguments overwhelmingly point in that direction is a huge advantage. Most people don’t do this, primarily for ego-related reasons.
Since I own DomainingTips, I’ve obviously asked myself this question quite often, especially over the past couple of months: will domainers change their opinions after reading some of the articles I’ve written or after reading the debates in the comments section?

Up until this point, all comments had to be approved manually before appearing on DomainingTips but as of today, I’m going to try an experiment and disable comment moderation altogether. That way, your comment *should* appear instantly, assuming of course that it isn’t caught by a filter (for example, if your comment contains a bunch of links, the filter will catch it and the comment in question will not appear until I approve it).

On Tuesday, I exchanged thoughts with some readers and tried to explain that despite the fact that let’s say .info is considered a failure by most domainers, certain domains definitely have reseller market value.

A lot of people are excited about the fact that when selling to end users, the returns are often *very* high. A lot of people frequently turn registration fee purchases into let’s say 4 figure sales, so again, the returns can be impressive.

After reading some of the comments that have been posted yesterday (when I asked for which new gTLDs there will be reseller market demand), it’s clear to me that this topic deserves our attention.

Realistically speaking, it’s highly unlikely that *all* new gTLDs will end up being liquid on the reseller market. Therefore, the following question arises: for which new gTLDs will there be reseller market demand?

In my opinion, the answer is no.
As far as great investment grade dot coms are concerned at the moment of writing, the strategy is simple: good dot coms are expensive, so your strategy is basically something along the lines of “buy high, sell higher” and it can actually work rather well.

A few days ago, I explained that without domainers, new gTLDs would/will most likely fail. Today, I’d like to take things one step further by trying to figure out whether or not the new gTLDs could be supported *just* via domainer registrations.

On DomainingTips, I do everything humanly possible to present a fair and balanced perspective when it comes to gTLDs or anything else for that matter. There are definitely positive aspects associated with the new extensions, I’ve referred to them through some of my previous posts and will continue to do so. The same principle is valid when it comes to the negative ones.
Today, I’d like to refer to something that in my opinion represents the biggest mistake made with new gTLDs.

In my opinion, domainers represent a *considerably* more important variable in the new gTLD game than most people think and through this post, I will try to explain why and what the implications are.
