When it comes to dot coms, I’m sure most of you agree that the effect of new gTLDs will probably be positive, consolidating its position as the market leader. I’m sure a lot of new gTLDs will be profitable but they can easily be extremely profitable without surpassing dot coms and, in fact, I honestly doubt any new gTLD operator thinks surpassing dot coms is even within the realm of possibility.
But when it comes to dot net and dot org domains, it’s a bit more tricky.
Will they be perceived as “established” / “proven” TLDs and therefore appreciate in value or will they lose their “not a dot com but the next best thing” appeal?
I’ll write a post about this later this week or next week.
For now, I’m interested in your opinions
