POLL: Which New gTLDs Will Be the Most Valuable?

By on November 22, 2010

According to reports at CircleID we will begin to see new generic top-level domain extensions approved sometime late next year. ICANN’s official application period may begin as soon as May 31, 2011.

I recently discovered that NewTLDs.tv maintains an interesting list of new gTLD proposals. This database represents 135 applicants who have expressed interest in managing new top-level domains. However, there are some organizations that have competing interests in the same gTLDs, such as .NYC, .Shop and .Web.

A wide selection of major cities have submitted proposals including .Paris, .Berlin, .Dubai, .London and others. I would like to see more support around new gTLDs for cities and states in America. Several countries, continents and even .Earth are also represented.

Specialized gTLDs have made a strong showing, representing many industries such as .Game, .Bike, .Music, .Sport, .Money and ideas such as .Peace, .Love, .Eco and .Free.

I have selected what I believe are the top 10 gTLD proposals. To get an idea of how I selected these TLDs you may be interested in reading my article on premium TLDs.

Please take a moment to vote for the top three gTLDs you feel will be the most valuable in terms of domain resale for top keywords.
