Happy New Year! and Here Are the Dec 30 .CA TBR Drop Results

First of all, this is my last post of 2015 so Happy New Year to everyone and all the best with family, domains and business in 2016!  Some of you are probably already into the New Year, or closer than us in the West Coast timezone.

In this week's .ca domain TBR drop, a total of 147 domains were taken.  DNJournal didn't publish a domain sales report this week, and I didn't see any .ca sales reported anywhere else.

2015 has been one of the most interesting years in domaining ever, in my opinion.  I thought the new gtld's would be the big story for 2015 (whether they crashed or not), but the big story by far is the Chinese domain invasion that began early in the year and has continued until now.  Up until the end of 2014, the domain market had seemed to stabilize somewhat, with the only question being what would be the impact of the new extensions.  Even most veteran domainers didn't see the huge demand and price increases that would occur in 2015 for short numeric and letter domains.  The impact to the domain industry has been staggering and the only question left is will this continue into 2016 and beyond.  NamesCon 2016 Las Vegas takes place early in January and I'm sure a lot of discussion and news will come out of this conference on where we are headed into the New Year.  Their huge domain auction might be a good indicator.

Some of the better .ca domains that dropped this week included:  (history in French)  (always a good idea)

The full list of domains that dropped yesterday is below.  Thanks to Sibername for providing the data.  I've bolded some of the better quality and more interesting names in the list.

1472015/12/30 (David A McFadden) a Top Pick in Dec 16 .CA TBR Drop

I missed a few TBR drops in December because this was such a busy month, but below is the drop results from December 16 and I will post this week's drop results shortly.

There was one .ca domain sale I saw reported since the last time, which was:  -  $4,888  sold at Sedo

You don't see a sold very often, and usually they go for higher prices.  But when you factor in the Canadian dollar is only worth about 73 cents US right now, if the seller was Canadian you get over a 30% premium when you do the currency exchange. now forwards to a Chinese language site at

Some of the better names that dropped on December 16 were:

Friday, December 4, 2015 a Top Property in Dec 2 .CA Drop, and 15 Years of .CA

This week's TBR had pretty average results for a .ca drop, with 114 .ca domains caught.  There were also a couple of aftermarket sales for .ca to report this week, which was nice to see.

Some news came out this week on the 15th year anniversary of .CA going public.  Back in 2000 the .ca domain extension became available for any Canadian resident to register.  Prior to that time you had to be a Canadian business to register a .ca.  I remember wanting to register .ca domains and not being able to at the start of 2000.  In the month or two leading up to general availability, you could pre-register the .ca domains you wanted and on the start date, if the name was available, you had it.  If there was more than one application for the same name, I believe it was a random draw.  I remember it was a bit exciting after general availability opened, waiting to see which names you got.  I remember getting much less than half of the names I put in for, and some I still have today.  Amazing to think it's already been that long!  Here is the press release that was issued by CIRA announcing the 15 year Anniversary.

The two .ca domains that were reported sold in the past week were:  -  $5,500 US -  sold at Sedo  -  $3,600 US -  sold at UnicDomains

Both of these names are still on parked pages and it's not clear yet what they will be used for.

In the TBR, some of the better names that dropped this week included:  (I saw this name on the list prior to the drop and a bit surprised it went so high, though I do like 'Super' names.)  (A Chip .ca!)  (French word for 'there' or 'here')  (More of a popular word in England I think, but I do see it used)

See below for the full list of 114 domains taken in the TBR drop.  Thanks to Sibername for providing the results.  Some of the better and more interesting names have been bolded.

Will You Be Renewing Your New GTLD's You Bought a Year Ago?

First off Happy Thanksgiving to all those in the USA celebrating today!  One of the things domainers who had short .com's at the start of 2015 need to be thankful for is all the Chinese buyers who showed up this year with big budgets.  Those 'crappy' letter and you might have had a year ago today, wondering what kind of future they would ever have but you still held on for some reason, are now able to give back some holiday spending money, a year end profit, and maybe a nice family vacation.

The Chinese Domain Invasion of 2015 is the big story of the year.  A lot has been written on it, and many profits have been made on domains that you could get for reg fee price just a year or two ago (even a few months ago!).  The impact of this to domainers must have been what the British Invasion felt like in the 60's to music lovers.

I think the next big story of 2015, leading into 2016, will be what happens to all the new gtlds that were registered starting about a year ago when they all began their rollouts.  Some of the ones I know that are coming due include:


I'm sure many wish they had spent those new gtld dollars on rounding up and's at the end of 2014.  How much farther we all would have been ahead!

I think domainers will be looking over their new gtld's with a new set of eyes, keeping their best and letting others drop.  I'm guessing more will be dropped than kept, but maybe not.

Some of the things that make it hard to continue holding new gtld's:

- Limited aftermarket.  If you haven't had any inquiries in a year on that great new gtld you registered, then it might be hard to renew, especially if you can allocate those funds to something else.  Sales have been spotty, and often it's the best of the best that sell.

- Many new gtld's have $20, $30, $40 or higher renewal prices.  Hard to compete with .com and others at $8 renewal.  Good on those new gtld's that are keeping their renewal prices competitive.

- Other places to spend that renewal money.  Short numeric and letter domains in .net, .org, .xyz, .info etc seem to have interest picking up.  Some of those have first year renewal prices that are crazy low, so easy to enter that game.

The new gtld's may just need more time, many of their proponents even say it's a 5 to 10 year game for mass recognition and adoption.  To me, some Black Friday new gtld renewal specials sound like a good idea right about now.

So if you bought new gtld's in the past year, will you be renewing most of them as they come due?

----- My Top Choice in November 25 .CA TBR Drop

This week's .ca TBR drop wasn't nearly as good as last week's.  In total, 128 .ca domains were grabbed in this week's drop.  There were some interesting one and two word .ca's in this drop, and I think was the best name available.

There were no .ca domain sales reported in the last week that I saw.  Most everyone's attention is on short numeric and letter .com's and other global extensions due to the rise in Chinese interest.  There have been some nice .ca domain sales reported in 2015 and I'm sure we'll see some more soon.

Some of the better names on this week's list included:

The full list of domains taken in the drop is below.  Thanks to Sibername for providing the results.  I've bolded some of the better and more interesting names.
