I’ve been reading all about the .Web domain name extension. Andrew, Kevin, Mike, Konstantinos, and Theo have all shared their thoughts about .Web domain names. I also shared some thoughts about .Web domain names. It seems that the majority of people commenting on blogs and forums believe .Web is going to be very popular.
I am curious if you think .Web will ultimately become the best selling new gTLD extension. At the present time, there are more .XYZ domain names than any other new gTLD extension with about 6.4 million registered domain names. The .XYZ registry achieved this number over two years by offering many inexpensive (or free) domain names. Many people seem to think .Web is the best of the new extensions, and I would be interested in knowing if readers believe .Web will surpass other extensions.
In addition to the new extensions that are currently available for sale, other extensions that are coming on the market in the near future could also be competitive. I think .Blog is bound to be successful with the backing of WordPress, and .Shop may also prove to be a big seller.
In the next few years, do you think .Web is going to surpass other new extensions? Vote in the poll below, but more importantly, please share your thoughts about why or why not in the comment section.
