What do you think about .WEB? Could it be the new gTLD Domain Investors have been waiting for?


So there has been a lot of buzz about .WEB, particularly this week as Verisign jumped in the mix. If you haven’t been following the drama surrounding .WEB, I highly recommend giving this article a read on Domain Name Wire.

For the sake of this post, let’s just pretend that we live in a world where .WEB is launching next month. And let’s also suppose that the pricing isn’t astronomically high – I’ll put it at $14.99/month.

Would you add .WEB to your portfolio? If so, would you go big or just dip your toes in the water?

Of course it’s never fair for me to ask a question without answering it myself, so here’s my answer. I would buy .WEB domains, it is one of the very few new gTLDs that I am bullish on. That being said I don’t think I’d go big, I would dip my toes in the water probably buying 10-15 names.

Any .WEB name I buy would have to be one that I could see selling for (or actually did sell for) six-figures if it were a .COM. I’d also probably stick to one-word domains. If in the first year I found that one or two names sold, based on inbound offers, and I was happy with the price I might re-up adding another 5 – 10 names.

Okay – there’s my two cents, now I want to hear from you. Comment and let your voice be heard!
