Rick Likes .Parts hates .Build. Here’s Why one Could Work and one Can’t Work

Afternoon Folks!!

So according to DomainIncite, Donuts signed contracts on the following gTLD's.

"Donuts signed contracts for: .haus, .properties, .maison, .productions, .parts, .cruises, .foundation, .industries, .vacations, .consulting, .report, .villas, .condos, .cards, .vision, .dating, .catering, .cleaning, .community, .rentals, .partners, .events, .flights and .exposed."

The good news is there is one I actually like. The others, not so much. But I have to digest a bit first. So give me a few days. Depends on viable strings. Nothing more, nothing less and that is before the game starts. That is why I keep saying many will "Die on the vine" as you will see illustrated below.

This is all before we even get to Public Acceptance. So that is another conversation for another day. It is a very big conversation because the public holds most of the cards. Not to get off the track here but the public spoke this week in New Jersey. 50,000 sign up for online gaming and a 740 for Obama care.

But I think .Parts actually makes sense. I can see a wide variety of meaningful strings.

To me, these things POP OUT when they work.

.Build came out or was announced the other day and I got 3 strings.




On the other hand I can think of dozens and dozens and dozens of strings that start with build.whatever. You can think of many. The other way around. Good luck! My mind hurts from STRAINING to think of some.

And PLEASE remember, this is only the first obstacle of many. But it is also the one obstacle that has the power to marginalize most from day #1. And will die on the vine. Strings are like roots of a tree. No roots, no tree.

    The strings you have purchased have no direct navigation and are not a corporate identity, at best they could be used as a bootstrap tag line…

    I think less than 1% of new gTLD domains have worthwhile commercial value for the risks of paying for renewals.

    Plenty of .build just need to think along the lines of things like custom.build pro.build kitset.build eco.build etc etc

    But for $100 registration fees Pa, I’ll give them all a miss. Might as well stick with .com

    Rick, don’t do it.

    They are ALL going to fail. No exceptions. There is nothing wrong with them. They will all work..but they are not .COM’s. Accordingly, they will fail.

    Anybody looked at the auction process for .xyz, you could bid 100 trillion billion dollars for a domain but as you have no deposit or liability to complete their is effectively no contract.

    In my opinion this is a complete farce. Its a shill bidders paradise.

    Rick likes gTLDs for the in and out price action. Our opinion is, he will not be the last one to sell out his gTLD Derivative positions, before the end game.

    Gratefully, Jeff Schneider (Contact Group) (Metal Tiger).
