Next Week’s New gTLD Launches
We’re looking at, without a doubt, the busiest week ever from a General Availability perspective. There will be no landrush phases, only two Early Access Program phases but (brace yourself) 18 General Availability phases. No, it’s not a typo. First of all, here are the General Availability phases that will start tomorrow ...

10 GoDaddy Discount Codes
Decent week for GD coupon enthusiasts, especially since 7 out of today’s 10 discount codes should work worldwide. As far as the remaining 3 are concerned, I’m not sure. Didn’t use any of them myself, so I can’t guarantee they’ll work. Some people are reporting that certain coupons don’t work if you copy/paste them during ...

Are There Any New gTLD Domaining Success Stories Yet?
Have any of you heard at least one success story about a domainer who did very well with new gTLDs yet? Yes, I know, it’s still too early to draw conclusions but I would have expected at least a few decent success stories by now. My case study can kinda-sorta be considered a start, since I’m

I Tab for a Cause, Do You?
I absolutely love the concept behind this charity project and want to share it with you guys, it works like this: you install a browser plugin and every time you open a new tab, you’ll be taken to a page that displays advertisements instead of seeing a blank one. The people behind the project make money

Dot London and Dot Global Conclusions
12,421 .London domains (bringing the grand total to 34,968) and 1,074 .Global domains (bringing the grand total to 1,637) were registered during the first day of General Availability. From a financial perspective, given the fact that both extensions have registration fees in the $50 area, the results are not bad at all for the regist...

Did You Register Any Dot London or Dot Global Domains?
I have to admit that I’m looking forward to seeing some numbers tomorrow but personally, I decided not to go after any Dot London or Dot Global domains. When it comes to new gTLDs, I’m getting pickier and pickier. Therefore, I’m only willing to reach for my wallet if a genuinely amazing combo is available

What Will Tomorrow’s Conclusions Be?
Tomorrow might not be an extremely busy day in terms of new gTLD launches (only two General Availability phases: Dot London and Dot Global) but as a reader mentioned yesterday, a lot of conclusions will most likely be drawn. Why? Because each of the two launches is special in its own way. On the one hand, Dot London

13 GoDaddy Discount Codes
I’ll be sharing 13 GoDaddy coupons with you guys today, including a $1.49 one (these have been pretty rare lately). Three of them should work worldwide and as far as the remaining ones are concerned, I’m not sure. Didn’t use any of them myself, so I can’t guarantee they’ll work. Some people are reporting that certain coup...

The New gTLD Launch Process – What Would You Have Done Differently?
This much is certain: a lot of mistakes have been made as far as the new gTLD launch process is concerned. What is the number one thing you would have done differently? In my opinion (I still don’t understand why they didn’t do this), confusingly similar extensions shouldn’t have been allowed. I’m sorry but ha...

Higher Registration Prices, More Profits
Mike Berkens blogged about the first day numbers for the 7 new gTLDs which entered the General Availability phase yesterday and some interesting conclusions can be drawn. With a $100-ish price tag, Dot Credit had a more than decent performance for the registry. 801 registrations may not seem like a lot but if you multiply that

Sedo’s Numeric Domain Auction Starting Tomorrow
I know some of you guys love numerics, so at least following the Sedo numeric domain auction that will start tomorrow might be a good idea. 264 domains are being auctioned and some of them are definitely amazing. However, those with a “lightweight” wallet need not apply, as the reserves are obviously very high. The “...

How Will Legacy TLDs Be Affected by New gTLDs?
Do I think legacy TLDs (Dot Info, Dot Biz and so on) will be affected by new gTLDs in a negative manner? Yes, I do. Do I think legacy TLDs will be affected by new gTLDs in a positive manner? Yes, I do. Now that everyone’s confused, it’s time to explain why my answer to both questions

New gTLD Categories?
Yesterday, I wrote a post about the fact that in my opinion, geo new gTLD (especially city new gTLDs, as Christopher Hofman pointed out in a comment) are clearly outperforming niche new gTLDs (such as Dot Furniture) but wait a second… what’s a niche new gTLD? Ok, in some cases, it’s obvious that an extension can

Geo New gTLDs Are Clearly Outperforming
The first results for the newly launched Dot Hamburg (large German city) are in and after the first day of General Availability, there are 13,793 domains. Solid results and all in all, I can’t remember any geos about which you can say that they were a flop. In contrast, Dot Furniture for example only has 605

NamePros New gTLD Marketplace Section Added
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

The “Too Many Similar Extensions” Situation
To give you an example, there will be 4 law-related extensions initially: Dot Attorney, Dot Law, Dot Lawyer and Dot Legal. Since we also have singular/plural-related issues such as Dot Accountant vs. Dot Accountants, I’m reasonably confident that in the future, we’ll also have a Dot Attorneys new gTLD as well as a Dot Law...
