As a domain flipper as well as domain investor I oftentimes try to break-up my domains into two categories – short and long term investments. Just like stocks I think that different TLD’s represent different time-windows for investing. Currently I’m placing my bets on .mobi, .net, .info, .cc, and .ws as good TLD’s for long-term investments. These are TLD’s that I don’t think will really reach their full potential until 2-3 years from now.
In a domain market with more and more new TLD’s though there’s bound to be some critical mass where new TLD’s stop becoming good investments. I’d be interested to hear what you think? Are .cc and .ws the sleeper TLD’s of 2010? Will .mobi ever really take-off or will phones with full-featured browsers render this TLD obsolete? It’s an interesting time in the domaining industry and as an investor it’s always important to speculate. You won’t be right all the time…but the few times you are right make it worth it.
