I am buying .com, .org and New gTLDs but I am also buying a few ccTLDs.
I own a few .co.uk, a couple .co (do these count as ccTLDs?) and of course a lot of .gr domain names.
This is a list of the .gr domains I have bought in 2015 up until now. I think it is interesting to see the quality of .gr domains that are becoming available. Most of these domains are from drops. And there are no auctions, just simple backorders.
The thing that you need to know, before registering any .gr domains, is what English words are popular and used in Greece. For example almost no one uses the word attorney, so attorney.gr would be next to worthless. It’s only the word lawyer that is used in Greece.
I am only posting the domains that are in English. I also buy .gr domains that are in Greeklish (Greek language written using the Latin alphabet) that are pretty popular in Greece.
Here is a list of .gr domains I bought:
The .gr registry released this year a lot of previously reserved 2 character domains. 2-letter country codes are still reserved.
And here are a couple of domains for my Greek friends:
I can imagine that “sushi” – as a popular loan word and a commercial enterprise everywhere – might fare quite well.
Believe it or not sushi became really popullar in Greece last year. If there were 20 restaurants in Athens last year, this year there are over 100.
I remember sushi being an exotic food twenty years ago. Japanese restaurants were luxury establishments in Athens.
Now there is a sushi bar in every corner! Come and see!
Nah, I’ll stick to real gyros 😀
Do .gr names sell?
There have been a few 5 figure sales on Sedo.
Most sales are done privately.
ah, i meant for you 🙂 or do you hold them more for collection?
poutana.anergia.gr would be a perfect subdomain 😀
Nice names, many of these would be $x,xxx or even $xx,xxx domains if they were the Canadian .ca extension. You could get names like this on the .ca drop over 10 years ago, not anymore without paying up in a drop auction. Should just be a matter of sit and wait for the offers.
Thanks for sharing. I wonder if there’s been any big sales on .gr. Those numbers would be good if the Chinese market want them as they do with .coms.
Let us know when you get rich.
