  1. Mark you got some nice .today domains!

  2. Tony says:

    Those renewal fees are ridiculous. Hopefully, you get to flip most of them within the next 12 months.

      Yea Energy.Today and Food.Today are $230 a year and the single letters are $113 a year, the others like Farm.Today and DNA.Today are $20 a year. The most confusion is explaining this lol. But I have to do that with .tv already so I have experience with confusion, in the meantime I see hundreds of sites using the term EnergyToday so we will see if I can sell it at a profit…

      most are $19-20/yr at dynadot so i think are good purchases even cheaper than .tv renewals

    .Today is more of a blogging/newspaper type extension, your success will come if it catches on. It is to early to say if the extension is embraced, or buried in the landfill of gtld’s still to be released. Many of the geo .today were at $200 and change premiums.

    I do not see .Today being a homepage type domain, for a corporate presence, where as .Technology can be, same with .Construction, .Contractors. If newspapers choose to convert, or bloggers give it a chance, it could catch on. Paying $2xx per year, when holding it in a portfolio setting waiting for a end user, is going to be tough.

    Land, and Kitchen were tricky ones to get phrases for.

    .Directory it is a good extension, with lots of keyword combinations that work well within it.

    Best of luck to you

      Time will tell Mike, either way it will be fun to see what happens…

      • Mike says:

        I agree these are exciting times, I think things are changing more than we know it.

        It is good you have a strong .com portfolio that will get you thru the years it may take for the gtld’s to catch on.

        It is very exciting to get names Like Energy Today, they are right there, ripe for the pickingthe launch, albeit at a premium.

        I tend to cross reference what is going on with the .com, and what they are priced at for the phrase. I can tell you many of the searches came up with domains held by BuyDomains, and they were very reasonable prices many times at $1,188, and under.

        So in my mind does someone pay BuyDomains $1000, for the .com, and pay $10 per year renewal, or do they pay up for the GTLD in the 4 figure range, and pay $230 per year in renewals. Large corporations, will not hesitate, small businesses might think twice.

  6. Phil says:

    Send me an email with your price for cooking.today and farming.today please .

  7. Next stop: .bubble … lol

    All this new Gtlds frenzy reminds me so much the cyclical pump-and-dump schemes you can see also in the stock market … it’s up to you to guess who is pumping, what will be dumped and who will loose its shirt … 😉

  9. Mark, if you are in “urgent” (lol) need, you can always buy TLDDropCatch.com or GtldsDrop.com, they are both available at the moment 😀
