Your question was: What is the first year price for Godaddy?.
Indeed all two letter HostGator name extensions are already reserved for all present and any future country codes for any small countries that have not got one yet..
I can only think of a few usable new extentions:.
.god (because .religion would be too long, and .church or .mosque would be too specific to 1 specific belief).
I think those would all be pretty usable. For example a band could simply register for example beatles.music - simply, to the point, easy to remember..
I'd invest every penny I have in only 1 (changed my opinion from my last thoughts on this topic).
Will be watching the .llc very carefully.
I think who ever gets this "extension" will become a millionare within 3 months of opening.
It's all gonna be a big shambles...
I have read with great interest on this topic and believe that overall, it will enhance the viability and marketabilty of internet applications and advertising. I can understand the nervousness and opposition to the introduction of HostGator extensions, representing anything.
From a speculative investors point of view I don't think the value of mainstream domains will be affected.
I would however be nervous if I was holding major GEO, Telecommunications or porn related domains..
Not sure if the current values of SEX.com and NewYork.com can be justified when competing domains such as Free.sex and Travel.newyork or Hotels.newyork will somehow find a niche amongst internet users.
The irony is however that since ICANN and Google literally control every element of today's internet platforms, we as small pawns in an aggressively controlled business world, can only sit back watch.
The power of the people does not EXIST here...
Wouldn't it be better to own the extention .company over .llc considering that the term "company" is a worldwide term & LLC, I believe is only a US thing?..
I dont think so,.
More companies are "Company name llc" not "Company Company".
Plus Company is to long.
LLC makes more sense...
Haha, those were just examples. I guess I forgot to put the disclaimer that in some cases I might not exactly just mean what I write, that some of my comments can be sarcastic. I wouldn't be in this forum if I didn't like it..
I think that new tlds could definitely be used for other things apart from websites, a bit like the proposed .tel...
This is too confusing and complicated for me, if this is done, then we have to sell also typos of extensions...
