I run a test counting all domain name inquiries in a month to see what TLDs are getting the most inquiries compared to the percentage that each TLD represents in my domain portfolio.
I only counted the inquiries I got for my domains parked at DomainNameSales.com that holds the bulk of my portfolio. I didn’t count any of the direct inquiries through email or to other marketplaces.
These were the results from the domain name inquiries:
To remind you this is my portfolio composition:
The results show that .Com, .Org and New gTLDs are getting relatively more inquiries compared to the portfolio percentages. New gTLDs are getting 15% of the inquiries but only represent 7% of my domains.
I would think that all in all my .com portfolio as a whole is of lower quality compared to the other TLDs in my portfolio. That is compared to other .com domains. It is not that I think that my .com domains are worth less.
Of course .com domains have higher sales prices than New gTLDs but contrary to what many people think, New gTLDs do get inquiries. But most of the New gTLDs I own are of higher quality so that might skew the results a little.
The inquiry percentages are almost the same to my portfolio TLD percentages in the case of .net, .biz and .gr.
The TLDs that are not doing so well are .info and .us.

Are you seeing the same results in your portfolio?
