  1. Drink.Coffee – I like! 😀 And Act.Today is another demonstration of a strong keyword+gTLD pair selling for a solid price.

  2. Agreed. The proper pairing of noun/verb +gTLD seems to be where the sales are happening, and where the interest is.

  3. Here’s why a sale like Drink.Coffee shows how weak the gTLDS are. There’s a limited number of words to the left of the dot that make sense with each gTLD. For .Coffee you could have:

    drink.coffee
    black.coffee
    order.coffee
    decaf.coffee
    etc…

    Keep going with the list, but it’s not going to be super long. So when one of the top 25 domains from that list sells for $5k in the aftermarket what does that tell you about the value of that gTLD?

    • @Anticareer,

      That argument doesn’t really work. 2-word domain names that end in “coffee” aren’t worth very much, whether they use .COFFEE or .COM. We can’t make any legitimate inference from “coffee” domains to domains in general.

    • DrinkCoffee.com is better
      BlackCoffee.com is better.
      OrderCoffee.com is better.
      DecafCoffee.com is better
      etc but you aren’t going to get rich from these domains. the gtlds serve No Purpose.

  4. Is the # 15 million gtld’s registered, and this is all the sales :-s
