Renew or drop? Post 10 New gTLDs domains and I will give you my opinion

I posted that I dropped about 200 New gTLD domains in March and April saving me about $45,000 in future renewals.

A couple of people asked me if they should keep or drop their domains so I thought to give people my opinion on their domains in a separate post.

So here you can post 10 domains and I will reply with a ‘renew’ or ‘drop’ on each domain.

Rules:

  1. Please only post 10 domains each. If you post more than 10 I will simply ignore your comment.
  2. Unless you tell me otherwise I will assume the domains have no traffic, revenue or previous inquiries and offers.

I am not necessarily asking for your best or worst domains. I think that domains you don’t know what to do with will work better.

More or less I will follow my own set of 10 rules that you can find here. You can do it too and we can compare results after I reply.

What you will get is simply my opinion. You should not follow it if you believe otherwise or if you think you have more data than me. Also many people have strange niches that I know nothing about so in certain cases I may say ‘pass’, meaning I have no idea if you should renew or not.

Renew means that the domain has some value and that most of the time is above $500. Again this is simply my opinion. Everyone has one. If you don’t want my opinion please don’t post domains.

BTW I will do 1 pass only. I usually do 2 or 3. Thanks

UPDATE:

All 260 domains have been evaluated.
More than 84% were a “drop” of “drop?”.
Please don’t submit any more.
Thank you all!

  9. Interested in your thoughts on just one: tech.support

    • I will chime in on this one. It is a very appropriate fit for the tld and would provide an effective url for a number of tech companies. Very focused, memorable. Renew!

      • Tech.Support is a great one. Probably the best .Support…..The only problem is building a brand on it is subject to huge renewal increases. The best keywords in all of the extensions seem to subsidize the lack of projected registrations. The renewals could easily increase as much as 3000%. We have seen this already and the registries and the registrars have done very little to give comfort to anyone building a brand on a New G….Notice the amount of redirects by the largest companies? Currently it’s hard for small and large companies to build on these New G’s with confidence, that is until the registries and registrars address this issue.

      • The renewals are at $950/yr now – are you thinking they’ll increase?

    • Tom – Absolutely YES, there is no limits to how much the renewals can increase. The industry has already seen some strings increase as much as 3000%….The New G’s are not producing what was projected and it appears that the really great keyword combinations are where the registries will extract to make up for the losses…Again, we are already seeing this…There is absolutely no confidence to develop around a New G and that is attributing to the dead aftermarket for these type of domains….Renewals around $1000 may not seem bad for an end user, with something like Tech.Support, but what do you do when the registration increases to $30,000 + per year???….I love the marketing aspect of the New G’s and feel many of them make great uses, but again the registries and registrars really need to address this issue going forward…

      • Totally agree. Except in marketing amidst a sentence/text they don’t work well at all. Confusing as to whether there was a misplaced period.

        Dropped a lot of these. They were a hedge against my .com portfolio. The price stability issue makes them uninvestable for my long term strategy.

    • It seems you bought it more as an end user and that makes it difficult to separate yourself from it.
      But you are not using it so drop it.
      Mike Berkens owns the similar and much cheaper technical.support. $230-$920

    • tech.support is the best one I’ve seen listed here. Sure renewal is high but if you can handle the fee I would not drop it. I don’t see Donuts going up on it, pretty sure they have already stated this in a press release about their pricing not long ago. If an end user can’t handle $30.00 or so per day to operate the domain they don’t have much of a business.

      • Mark – If you can show any form, press release or statement that guarantees price stability, I and others would love to see it….

      • Donuts has already increased the cost of registration/renewals on some extensions but grandfathered legacy registrations so there was no negative impact.

        They also dropped costs on some, but unfortunately the grandfathering approach mentality legacy registrations did not benefit.

    In my humble opinion of all the names listed thus far, these are the only ones I would have considered registering myself:

    Slipper.world possible affiliate site

    Tech.support name speaks for itself
    HomeCare.supplies
    Bullet.media
    MicroBeer.club
    Bay.cafe
    Depenable.news

    and possibly the 3 letter .online dme,hme

    all others I would not of even registered for free , and would drop.
