    New Domain Extensions! Can be ANYTHING!



    In the last couple of days a new feature has been available to people with VERY DEEP POCKETS, when it comes to registering a domain name. Now domains can have any extension, such as TheSEO.Bay or Mydomain.Rocks or Penis. Enlargement and so on!

    Dont rush to get a domain though yet, the price for getting one of your choice is 180.000 $ for the initial application and 20.000$ per year after that. Yes you read that right, thats 180 thousands!

    Expect all hell to break loose with tons of Brand Name domains flooding our browsers and even more domains that are misspells or typos of the above brands scamming away people!

    This will lead to all kinds of changes to search engines , and none of us will have anything to do with it !!

    Well maybe some of us with a spare 185K .

    Only very large companies could take advantage of this..I dont think we are gonna get "flooded" at $180,000 at pop, and then an ungodly renewl fee. Scammers, and squatters wont be able to touch it. Had they just opened it up to anyone for anything at the regular price..the intenet would be a mess. Hell, even large companies , are going to hesitate with that price tag. Times have changed, and even very large corp. with the funds to do it would have to really sit down and think about it.. I mean how much advertising will $180,000 get...a WHOLE LOT! They did this right.. price is a great filter, and for the most part will allow giant companies to register their domain with thatever they want like Coca.Cola

    You could still buy theseo.bay. You simply go to the company who owns .bay and get a domain from them, just like .com. On the other hand someone could buy .bay or .cocacola and keep it, not allowing any registrations I imagine.

    He raises a point I didn't really think about though...

    If I paid $180k in 1986 to own the entire .com directory and only charged .a dime ($0.10) per every .com address issued, I would have turned my investment into $8.8 million in 25 years.

    I think there is a bit of misunderstanding here. The 180K $ price is for a domain.extension, that is theseo (domain) . bay (extension)
    Buying the whote .bay extension is a whole new game and I dont think that it falls under the 180k $ category..
    These are 2 separate things...
    You could sell subdomains through it though... Makes for some interesting ones like: NewYork.Car.Sales or London.SEO.Companies and so on...

    Taken from the article:
    "Some companies and entrepreneurs have already expressed interest in applying for a suffix and possibly earning millions of dollars a year from people and groups wanting a website that ends in that name."

    "Despite the startup costs, suffixes could be lucrative to the winning bidders. A company called ICM Registry receives some $60 a year for every ".xxx" registered, for instance."

    "Auctions would be held should multiple bidders seek the same suffix. It could take months more for winning bidders to set up"

    Article is kind of misleading if what your saying is true...

    I believe "expressing interest" is the key here. Like in "We would love to be able and do that". To the best of my knowledge, suffix selling is not yet open, but hey, if you got deep enough pockets, anything goes! The point remains though, that for a suffix the price would/should be much much higher, at least that's the logical thing.

    For the record, ICM Registry started charging for xxx domains since 2005, years before ICANN accepting the suffix. What beats me though, is how did they manage to get the domain, without the suffix going on a public auction. I guess it has something to do with the fact that they were the first to come up with the idea back in 2000, so they might have some "ownership" of sorts over the xxx suffix.
