I know it sounds weird but I’ll try to explain.
On the one hand, new words/terms constantly appear. For example, if you hand regged SocialMedia.com back in the day, let’s just say your retirement is paid for.
On the opposite end of the spectrum though, some words end up being used less and less, which brings me right back to our title.
For example, the word “cyber” was extremely popular at a certain point.
Naturally, domains such as CyberChat.com or CyberDating.com were amazing.
Do they still have value? Sure! They’re still very good domains.
Do they have as much value as they had back when the term “cyber” was hot? Not by a long shot.
The overall domain market is up significantly compared to the period when the word “cyber” was hot yet despite that fact, the top “cyber” domains haven’t appreciated in value. In fact, they’re worth less than they were at that point.
A paradox, if you will.
As a domainer, you have to understand this phenomenon and ultimately realize that just like certain words end up becoming more and more popular, other words/terms lose their luster as time passes.Advertisement: DomainingServers.com lets you host UNLIMITED domains at $0.98/month and we're putting a LIFETIME money back guarantee on the table (if you're not satisfied, we'll issue a full refund).
