Marketer’s Alert – New Domains Available!


Imagine if you had the foresight you now have as hindsight, back in the late 1990’s when buying Web domains was a new experience. By simply being a bit visionary and picking the right new domains back then, you could have been a multi-millionaire today. Don’t believe me? Check out the top 10 most expensive domain-only sales:

  1. $13 million (2010)
  2. $9.99 million (2008)
  3. $9.5 million (2007)
  4. $7.5 million (1999)
  5. $7.5 million (2006)
  6. $5.5 million (2010)
  7. $5.1 million (2009)
  8. $4.9 million (2008)
  9. $3.0 million (2006)
  10. $3.0 million (2009)

Sadly (and not surprisingly), sex and gambling-related domains are the biggest money makers.

However the wild west of new domains registration is not over and for some time the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) has been preparing to introduce a whole new range of generic top level domains you can purchase (or should I say invest in).

I wrote about this last year and it’s time for another profitable reminder. I recently jumped on this availability and secured a few of these new domains, including:



And I have one or two more up my sleeve.  I’ve been trying to get all my Private Client Members to secure potentially valuable domains and suggest everybody reading this do the same.  Think outside the box and maybe you can get the perfect new domain – one that sounds like a big benefit.  For example…





You get the idea.  Now I have no idea of the above are available, which is why you need to check with your domain registrar. Since I use GoDaddy, I can sign up to be alerted when these domains are available for registration. According to GoDaddy, there are over 900 new extensions soon to be available.

As a favor to foks who read my articles, I have put together this list of new domains that are currently available or soon-to-be-available.

Click here to download it.

I’m sure this short list gets your marketing juices flowing. I know it did mine.


You can visit GoDaddy’s web site and put yourself on a notification list, which is what I did in order to get the domains I wanted (click on Domains on their home page and select New Domain Extensions in the drop-down menu).

I’m not sure which domain registrars will be carrying these new domains and if you use a different registrar, you should check with them.

When these domains become available, it will be a mad rush to snatch up the best of the best. You never know what a new domain could be worth to you!

Have you scored any of these new domains for your business? If so, share it below!

    Hi Mike, thanks for sharing this valuable information. My experience: buying a domain and more domains for the sake of hope of cashing in big is very dangerous. I did sell domain that I bought -ok it was just a brand of a nutritional product for 500 USD and bought it for 9. But – since than I spend many times to domains which I bought, but never developed. Some of them I lost due bad management- forgot to renew. They are virtual properties- they or make money, (maybe break even) or lose money. SO my hint to the newcomers: buy it and develop it, make profit from it- otherwise you are just losing money year-buy year. And it is only a few bucks , but in a few years you will have 50 domains or more times a few bucks.

      Silard – first off I appreciate you reading my articles from Hungary! While I do hear what you are saying and can definitely agree with your points, the focus I am trying to get business owners to get is that the “perfect” domain may be out there for them and their business with these new extensions. While I did mention the notion of investing in domain names, I think most of my readers are more apt to secure a domain for their business rather than trying to flip a domain or two. Thanks again for your comments!
