So What’s New in the Domain Industry in 2014?

It’s almost 2 years now since I wrote a meaningful domain blog post. I had even taken a sabbatical from domaining activities to focus on other business matters.

Two years on, the question really is: what’s new in the domain industry?

By the looks of it, there isn’t that much new that has been happening. It would appear to be business as usual, and that is not necessarily a good thing.

Some are billing 2014 as one of the biggest years for the domain industry so far. That statement is only true depending on how you look at it.

I see it as more a case of duplicity and multiplicity. A duplication of what has happened in the past, only in multiple instances all at the same time.

New GTLD’s

The New General Top Level Domains (GTLD’s) have a lot of people excited. But the question really is: who will be the winners and losers? Are these GTLD’s really going to change and transform the domain industry? I am in the mood to write these days, and will surely say what I really think about the new GTLD’s.


There are some new developments on the Escrow front. This I do find to be of interest, and I will also take some time to publish a few comments on this in the next few days.

Domain Aftermarket

On a whole, the domain industry is still cracking on and there is a lot life left in it to carry on for the foreseeable future.

Domains are still selling and people are still investing. But I foresee a lot of changes in the not so distant future.

Stay tuned…
