Ever since reading this from Andrew Allemann just six weeks ago I've been binge buying .LINK domains. Enjoy!

Domain investor acquires .link top level domain - Domain Name Wire | Domain Name News

When a well respected domainer said this about .link, ".LINK is no worse than .XYZ" i essentially went balls to the wall and now own over 1,100 .link domains. The rebirth of .link is underway, and if any of my Canadian friends would like to hear more just ask. Thanks
 
I wish him luck with that, for every extension that makes (like .xyz) probably a hundred fail.

There are so many better ones than link. Personally I like .pro and you can see when companies like red.com also own red.pro then the extension is attracting attention.

Thanks for commenting, but how do you account for this from our Canadian friend Bob Hawks;

"I had not heard until your post that the new owners of .link had been announced, finally. Good to hear one is a successful domain investor. In my view .link was by far the most valuable of the auctioned TLDs from the former Uniregistry. I hope the new owners will manage the TLD well."

Or this from the owner/founder of one of the top registrars in the world; ".LINK is no worse than .XYZ"

Interesting, i just learned that Marek Ekhaus, a friend from Prague owns Sex.link that could become a runnerup to Sex.com if he plays his cards right. Thanks again King of Kitchener!
 
Well you will have a year to find out if it pays off before your renewals start rolling in.

.xyz has become attractive to crypto, blockchain and web 3.0 companies in a big way. Having been there from the start of .xyz and witnessed it all, almost no one could have predicted the sales it would get.

.link still has to prove itself, I wouldn't say it has caught on yet. you'll need to start seeing regular sales of .link for good prices and companies start to use them.

anything is possible in domains, these newer tech companies seem willing to stray from .com, and if a successful company chooses a .link for their website it could encourage others to do so. still just a speculation so far though.

Thanks for your excellent analysis(y) I agree that ".link still has to prove itself", and I hope to contribute. I've been starting all sorts of businesses for the last 50, and I've been told I'm pretty good at it. With regards to renewals, 90% to include names like GoBig.link and Capitalism.link renew at $8.59, while Premium domains like Invest.link and comedy.link renew at $116.

Finally, i know a number of domainers from around the world who are pulling for me, and I'm making new connections via Linkedin every day. The one thing i do know is that in order for the new TLD .LINK to catch on, it's up to me. Thanks again(y)

So many domainers missed .xyz because they thought it was a crap extension that would whither away, so you never know. It took years for .xyz to get the traction and big sales. hate to say I totally missed it, long time domainers could have loaded up on one word .xyz and waited, but most certainly didn't.
 
Remember, the primary reason XYZ took off was because the registry created a way to link to your ETH wallet/address, the ENS network, and thereby the ETH community, and then rode the Crypto wave to prosperity. Without that very specific Crypto linkage, XYZ is still an also-ran gTLD and Swetha is subsisting on KD.

Thanks for the info. I was hoping .link might hookup with Linkedin in some/any capacity. Like with .xyz, the registry is key to .link success. Doing a little investigative work I've determined the new owners of .link are well financed, and I can't wait for them to come out from behind the curtain. All I know is I'm having FUN!

Linked.in would be more like it, as in India
 
Is LinkedIn still relevant these days, I'm on there but only rarely. At any rate it probably doesn't have stellar growth numbers or stickyness.

From the standpoint there are over 830M members of Linkedin worldwide, it's still relevant. Unlike Facebook, most people who are on Linkedin regardless of whether they're active, are business minded. I have over a thousand connections on Linkedin of which 200+ are associated with the domain industry.

Like Mapledots with Linked.in, i'm full of ideas. When I finish keying this i intend to register the domain Attention.link. Why you might ask? First, it's available and I can afford to pay the $116 Name Silo is asking. Second, i intend to use it in such a way that it invites a "click" on the link;) Third, my intention is to deliver a message in 60 seconds or less that .link like .com is simply a "means to an end"

Do you remember me saying that success of .LINK is up to me?......Attention! Attention! Attention!
