2017 will prove to have many new solid investments in the domain industry. Tons of available names for sale represent an opportunity to diversify the portfolio and continually “turn over existing inventory”.
Here are five predictions for 2017 in the domain industry
A few additional thoughts based on our expertise at NameExperts.com for 2017
Domain names will continue to grow in 2017. We will see more investors searching for the next great investment, while the end-user market will continue to blossom. Clients will be target-specific. Many investors will continue to sell-off their speculative buys. Most solid long-term investors will remain on the sidelines, and acquire opportunistically. While GTLDS will continue to strengthen overseas; primarily in Asia, we will see some of the new strings either be sold, or discontinued by the registry operating them.
What are your thoughts for the New Year? How will the domain name space continue to evolve? Who will drive the market, the end user or the investor? We always welcome your feedback and encourage you to join the conversation here.
We also would like take a moment to thank all of our clients and customers for an incredible 2016 and look forward to assisting you all with your domain industry needs for many years to come.
