There has been a lot of talk lately about the state of the domain industry, and like most things involving people and opinions, there’s no right answers but there sure are a lot of perspectives. I’ve heard from all ends of the spectrum from people who think things are getting better by the day to those who think the sky is falling, and of course everything in between.
If you’ve been reading my blog for the last 10+ years then you know I’m an optimist in just about all areas of my life…Domaining included. In this case my optimism isn’t really based on anything outside of my own personal experience, which as been very positive and I haven’t seen anything suggesting that’s going to change anytime soon.
I’m just one person, and I’m also not a full-time Domainer so my perspective is likely different from someone who buys, sells, or brokers domains as their full time job. So I’m very interested to hear what you, my readers think, but to keep it digestible, I’d like to you to try to boil it down to one sentence.
Of course, it’s not fair for me to ask a question without answering it myself, so here’s my sentence.
I think this is a great time to be in the domain industry, mostly because of all the incredible .COM domains that are dropping every single day, and all the people that are distracted by new gTLDs, leaving more .COMs for the rest of us.
Okay – there’s my sentence, now I want to hear from you – comment and let your voice be heard!
