So, here is a scenario...
You find yourself with an insanely good misspell that nobody has thought of and you just registered the .com. You are ecstatic, you make a logo and the name looks absolutely phenomenal.
Now to maximize your profit potential you go and register the .net and .org and possibly the matching ccTLD.
So here is the million dollar question.....
What maximizes your profit potential, owning the matching extensions or not?
THE FOLLOWING IS BASED ON MY PERSONAL EXPERIENCE AND YOUR RESULTS MAY VARY.
I own a number of misspell domains and I usually buy up the matching extensions but for one domain I did not do that. It ended up selling because I did NOT own the matching extensions. So basically I did not bother to register them when I made up the word.
To my surprise someone registered the .net and actually launched a business on it.
Over two years later they contacted me to buy the .com.
So had I registered all the extensions this business would not have registered the other extension and I probably would not have had a sale.
Interesting scenario, don't you think?
