I agree this article won’t please everyone but there are several reasons why buying a domain name ending in .WEB could be – or could not be – a good decision. I will personally not buy one and here is why:
I am a new gTLD Consultant based in Paris. "New gTLD" stands for "new generic Top-Level Domains" from the ICANN new gTLD program. They are new domain name extensions such as ".consulting" (instead of ".com").
I am impressed to see the poor registration volumes of some SPORT domain name extensions. I had a look at the .TENNIS new gTLD and, while we are watching the Olympics Games, this TLD is losing domain name registrations.
We are in August and that should get back to positive in September but isn't one of the roles of Tennis organizations, such as the ATP, WTA, ITF, USTA, to do the promotion of Tennis? And by "promotion", I don't mean to sell ".tennis" domain names, but just to propagate the message that there is a domain name extension to represent it in Internet?
