Three Predictions For The Evolution of Domaining

Okay, I’m going to keep this post short and sweet, I know I say that a lot and never follow through, but this time I’m doing it. We are in NYC with a busy meeting schedule and as usual I have a lot of thoughts running through my head. Lately I’ve been thinking a lot about how our industry is going to evolve, for me I always try to focus on where we will be tomorrow rather than where we are today.

Of course there’s a good chance I’ll be wrong on all three counts but I’m no psychic, these are just predictions!

  1. gTLDs are going to dramatically impact the values of .NET and .ORG and all the other existing gTLDs except for .COM which will continue to be the gold standard and will most likely go up in price.
  2. Domain Conferences and Affiliate Marketing Conferences will join forces as more and more Domainers focus on development which really has a lot more to do with Affiliate Marketing than Domaining.
  3. The first reality show about Domainers will come out in the next five years. I’d watch it, wouldn’t you?

Okay, so these are three of my predictions, what about you, how do you think Domaining will evolve? Comment and let your voice be heard!
