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.

Thursday, November 19, 2015 is Top Dog in November 18 .CA TBR Drop

Here are the results from yesterday's .ca TBR drop.  In total there were 175 .ca domains picked up in this drop, which is getting close to double the normal number.

I saw one .ca domain sale reported this week at Sedo.  -  $1,750 US  -  sold at Sedo

This domain now forwards to, an Edmonton Alberta based automotive business.

One of my favorites I've ever seen in the drops turned up this week, and is, which means something if you've seen the hilarious movie This is Spinal Tap.

A lot of names caught my eye this week, but some of the better ones include:


The full list of names in the Nov 18 drop is below.  I've bolded some of the better quality and more interesting names.  Thanks to Sibername for providing the results.
