Domain Registrar Uses The 2nd Coming Of .Com “Beer.com Sold For $7M” To Sell New gTLD’s

Posted on the 11 January 2014 by Worldwide @thedomains

Domain Name Registrar, OnlyDomains.com has started to sell new gTLD’s chatting about the second coming of .Com domain aftermarket saying on the front page of its site:

“Remember when the domain name Beer.com sold for $7 million dollars? ”

“For the first time since the dawn of the Internet, people everywhere have an opportunity to claim ownership of a whole new range of top level domain web addresses. ”

“Domains like .App, .Venture, and even .Sex are coming soon. How much will yours be worth? ”

“Register one today and find out!”

In our opinion its another misleading attempt to get people to register new gTLD domains.

“”For the first time since the dawn of the Internet, people everywhere have an opportunity to claim ownership of a whole new range of top level domain web addresses. “”

Hum

Many of the best .com’s of course that were sold for huge money were not sold by those that  registered them at the dawn of the internet.

Lets take Beer.com as an example.

That domain really was registered at the dawn of the Internet way back in 1993.

The domain did in fact sell for $ 7 million but not for 11 years in 2004.

The original registrant of the domain wasn’t the one who sold the domain.

The domain was in fact bought for $80,000 and then was resold as a beer portal for $7 Million several months later.

There are a ton of people out there that missed the .com era, they weren’t born or were too young, or didn’t get the Internet thing or the domain things or lost interest after the .com crash.

But lets remember the most successful domain name investor of all time Frank Schilling didn’t really build his .com empire until after 2000 soem 7 years after beer.com was first registered.

There will a lot of investment coming in for those looking for the second coming, which is why you will see more and more of this type of advertising to appeal to them.

I hope domain registrars don’t take huge leaps of fact to entice registrations.
