My personal and business opinion is that if I were to buy new gTLD domain names, my investment would be long term rather than the short term investments I prefer to make on behalf of my company. I’ve heard mixed opinions from other people who are buying new gTLD domain names, and I want to hear your opinion on when new gTLD domain investments will be profitable.
To clarify this a bit more, I will give you an example of what I mean when I mention profitability. Let’s say you decide to buy 100 .Link domain names from Uniregistry for just under $1,000 ($9.88/each per year). How long will it take for you to sell or monetize via PPC to make a profit? Obviously, if you sell 2 names for $1,000/each in a year, you are in the black, but if you only sell 2 at $500, you’ll be in the red when it comes time to renew in year 2.
There are more variables at play than meets the eye because many people will continue to buy new domain names, adding to the time it will take to break even. That being said, what is your profitability outlook if you are investing in the new domain names?
