The votes are in – here’s what people think are the biggest domain industry changes of the decade

If you’ve been reading my blog for any period of time you probably know one of my readers who goes by the name Snoopy. While Snoopy and I don’t always agree (and he certainly lets me know when he doesn’t!) he comments on almost every single post of mine which is damn impressive IMO.

Snoopy has been more active on Twitter lately and he recently ran a poll asking people what they think the biggest domain industry change of the decade is. There’s still two days left but with 119 votes so far I feel like that’s enough to share the initial results, and give those of you who want to weight in a chance to vote yourself. Here are the results so far:

Domaining trends of the decade

I voted for “Collapse of Parking” because I know so many people that were impacted by this and had to make a fundamental shift in their domain business. I personally never made money parking so it didn’t impact me, but as an industry trend I think that probably made the biggest impact over the last decade.

If you were to rephrase the question to, “What was talked about the most in the last decade” I would definitely vote for “New TLDs” but I don’t think the new TLDs have made a major impact over the last decade, at least when it comes to Domainers.

Like I said, there’s still two days left to vote so if you want to chime in feel free to. Thanks to Snoopy for running this poll, I think it’s an interesting one and will be looking forward to seeing the final results. Of course, you’re also welcome to share your thoughts in the comments section below, you know the drill – comment and let your voice be heard!
