The .App extension is off to a fast start, booking over 100,000 registrations in just a few days. I tried to pre-register a few domain names for the standard fee at GoDaddy, and I ended up with none. It looks like all of the names I was interested in buying were bought by others prior to them becoming available in the General Availability phase.
I don’t think I will be attempting to register any other .App domain names. Based on some experiences negotiating with people who operate apps, I don’t think there is going to be a big appetite to buy domain names at a premium price,. Of course, I could be wrong, but I am not going to spend the time to try and find available .App domain names when I see limited upside.
I am sure there will be some people who do well with their .App domain investments, and hopefully you are in that position, but I don’t know if the secondary market will be strong. We shall see how (or if) Google promotes .App to its massive audience.
I invite you to share some of the .App domain names you managed to buy already. I am not interested in turning this into a sales post, so please respect that and just list the names (if you want to participate) rather than trying to sell them here. On a similar note, Afternic now allows people to list their .App domain names for sale, per a tweet last night from Paul Nicks.
