Google recently launched its .Page domain name extension. The launch news was announced on October 2nd on Google’s blog. Earlier this year, Google launched the. App extension to quite a bit of fanfare and considerable interest. At the present time, there are over 320,000 registered .App domain names, according to nTLDStats.com.
I am curious to know if domain investors are more likely to buy domain names in an extension operated by Google. I don’t really understand the marketability of .Page but I do understand why startups might want a .App domain name. From an investment point of view, some people may feel Google search may be influenced by Google’s extensions. I highly, highly doubt this, but there will always be people who might think it is some sort of “trust” signal that helps with rankings in some way and makes these domain names more desirable.
Are you more likely to buy a new gTLD domain name if the extension is operated by Google?
