Is .COM Dead? Some Say Yes, Others Say No – I Think Both Sides Are Right In Their Own Way


It’s a mantra we’ve all heard for years, .COM is dead. Then we read about the millions of dollars in .COM domains that sell every single week and realize, well that just can’t be true. With the addition of over 1,000 new gTLDs coming like a freight train there is a lot of speculation about how this will impact the .COM market.

As many of you know, I have been writing for since before it was launched to the public. I really like Medium and in 2014 I plan to put more focus on writing longer essays that might take a few days (or weeks) to put together.

Today history is being made and after a few weeks of writing and fine-tuning I finally published my first essay of 2014: In a world with .XYZ, .APP, .BIKE and many more, will there still be love for .COM?


As always I would love to hear your feedback (good or bad) and if you do like the essay please make sure to click the “Recommend” button at the bottom. I look forward to sharing more essays with you throughout the year – enjoy!
