Daily Poll: Vacation.Rentals vs. Home.Loans vs. The.Club

15

Donuts reported two very large new gTLD sales this year. In January, the company reported that Home.Loans was sold for $500,000. Last week, the company reported that Vacation.Rentals was sold for $500,300. In February, DNJournal reported that The.Club was sold for $300,000. All three of these deals are currently in the top ten publicly reported sales for 2018 year to date.

For today’s daily poll, I am curious which domain name you think is the best of these three new gTLD domain names. Vote in the poll below and feel free to share your thoughts in the comment section:

    All of them are worthless!

    Dot COM is King and it is the only legit business name

    You cannot scale without footsie leading .com
    “Coinbase and Earn.com, formerly known as 21.co until rebranding late last year”

      There are hundreds if not thousands of 4, 5, and 6-figure dotcoms sold years ago that are no more than parked pages or that don’t resolve. Fools?

      HomeLoans.com is owned by Wells Fargo. Since it is unavailable, Home.Loans is arguably the next best available choice. Same with Vacation.rentals. This broad criticism of new gltd’s seems just sour grapes, not keen insight. I think the market is beginning to tell you that .com is no longer the only valid choice. Time is demonstrating this to be increasingly true.

      I think new Gltds are a valid alternative to .com, but not a very good one when you have the budget to spend 1/2 mio on a domain early on in the project.

      For that amount, there are plenty of short, sexy and memorable dot com domains.

      Plus, as a European, I think vacation.rentals is going to have a hard getting their message across.

      Your average Greek, Italian, French etc… simply won’t get it. Local tld or .com for the time being at least…

      but in any case, if the business is good, they will make it in the long run with any name 🙂

      Doesn’t matter anyways. all those domains listed in the article are sold by the registry. they hold the best names. they are the domainers of new gtlds.

    Not thrilled with any. Average consumer could not type these in, let alone remember. I can’t remember what they are having just read the article… lol

    Hello Elliot,
    We suppose they are all equally precious to the (( .COM Equimoditty Platform Asset)) Holders , who will get lots of free traffic, off the backs of these GTLD knockoffs. Also the privileged (( .COM Equimoditty Platform Asset )) Holders can easily employ a .COM Sub-Domain Strategy (at no cost) and retain all the Traffic Leakage the GTLDs lose to the Strategically Superior (( .COM Equimoditty Platform Assets )) . Its what the Really Smart Money is Doing.

    There is no authenticity to back these sales. The registry and the buyer should share transaction details to prove it.

    Elliot,

    Thanks for putting out a blog poll like this, knowing you would catch flack.

    Says a lot about you.

    Keep up the good work.

    Wow gtlds are really worth that much? I was trying to buy birthday.party to support a similar .com website business I own. The guy wanted $50,000 for it. I dont see spending more than $5,000 on a gtld. For that much I might as well buy BirthdayParty.com from Rick Schwartz.
