    I like to have a .geek or .nerd TLD. When are those gonna be available?

    • Those definitely would be amazing. As of now there doesn’t seem to be any confirmed information about release dates or availability.

    There’s such a great array of TLDs showing up, I’m wondering what it’s going to take before people stop going straight to ‘.com’. Getting a good ‘.com’ is not easy these days.

    • I think it’s just going to take time. As more and more websites start popping up that aren’t using .com, more people will be aware that new TLDs are a possibility and this will factor into when these people need domains of their own in the future. I definitely see a lot more new TLDs popping up in the wild than I did when I posted this article almost a year and a half ago.

      Another key may be strategically placing these results in domain search results, something which we are continuously working towards. If the closest .com result for your search was thewelborniobikeshop.com and right next to it was welborino.bike for sale, I’d imagine it would be pretty compelling to go with the new TLD instead.
