I had a discussion with a friend about the .Vegas and .NYC new gTLD extensions, and we debated about which extension we prefer – .Vegas or .NYC. I won’t reveal which extension I like more, but I am curious about which extension you prefer. Personally, I think the geographic new gTLDs are going to be among the top performers of all new gTLD extensions.
One thing that is unique about these two extensions is that neither .Vegas or .NYC are the full name of their respective cities, Las Vegas and New York City. The .NYC landrush began on August 4, and the .Vegas landrush began today, August 14. .NYC domain names have a residency restriction and .Vegas domain names do not require registrants to have a presence in Las Vegas.
For the sake of the poll below, let’s forget about the nexus policy and just choose which extension you like straight up. Don’t think about things like prices or availability either. Simply put, if you could buy whatever .NYC or .Vegas domain names you wanted, but you could only buy them in one extension, would you choose .Vegas or .NYC? Vote in the poll below and feel free to comment in the comment section. I’ll probably share my thoughts in the comment section, too.
