It’s been a while since I registered a new gTLD domain and it’s not because I didn’t like the extensions but rather because quite frankly, there was nothing much left for me to get.
Therefore, the following question arises: how much is too much?
As a domainer, I try to be rational and keep an open mind.
I’m not a “dot com only” guy, nor am I a new gTLD enthusiast.
However, for me to register a new gTLD, there has to be some potential on the table. With so many new gTLDs in existence and on the horizon, one has to be quite picky and that tends to be hard when the best domains are taken right from the beginning.
We’re not just talking about a handful of domains here.
In a lot of cases, pretty much all of the good ones were either reserved or carrying premium renewals.
This leaves domainers scratching their heads and wasting their time performing various searches, only to find out that they’re essentially fighting over leftovers.
I don’t like telling other people how to run their business, so I’ll just end this post with a simple observation: if registry operators want domainer support, they really should throw us a bone
