I wrote a post entitled “Should Domain Forums Have a Marketplace Section for New gTLDs?” on Monday and the following day, a reader noticed that such a section was just added over at NamePros.
Here’s a link to that section (Marketplace – Domain Names – New gTLD).
I got a chance to take a look and it seems there are a few older threads in that section as well (late July – early August), so I’m not sure if the section already existed (although I don’t think so, I don’t remember seeing it back on Monday) or if Matt decided to add it after reading my post and moved some older threads there, since that section is at this point the most relevant one for those threads.
Regardless, it should be an interesting experiment.
I doubt the new gTLD section will be insanely active right off the bat but in time, that might change. There will never be a reseller market for new gTLDs in the true sense of the word in the absence of decent sales venues, so the fact that a new gTLD marketplace section has been added on a popular domaining forum is definitely good news and again, an interesting experiment.
