Dot HOT (.hot) There are three companies that are bidding on the new extension of dot hot. This is a bit of a perplexing extension. On one hand it has that real nice three letter and consisting of one word ‘hot’. But on the other hand what would this be used for? There’s a few obvious things like a website that talks about what is new, fresh, exciting, popular at the moment. It could be websites that talk about hot food like chili or tamales. It could be websites that talk about attractive women/male celebrities. But is this enough for a registration company to pay their fees? Is there that much interest in having a domain name that ends with dot hot? I just don’t think so! This could be an extension that might suffer real problems right out of the gate.
Dot CONSTRUCTION (.construction) Their are two bidders for the new extension of dot construction. This would have to be an instantly successful new extension. Of course it depends on the pricing, but what construction company would not want to have their company name followed by dot construction? I can also see some heated auction battles for highly sought keywords in this extension. For example
‘pool.construction’. The only downside I see with this name (and it’s probably a very small one) is that it’s currently a down market for new construction. But I feel that this is a very small concern because there will be an initial flood of registrations in this extension, combined with high auction results of top keywords, which will make this a successful extension into the future.
Dot AFRICA (.africa) is a very interesting new extension planned for 2013. Africa is the world’s second-largest continent, and has the most people on a continent. So there would be a vast user base for this extension. But on the other hand there is a significant amount of the population at are amongst the poorest people on earth. Africa does have an abundance of natural resources like gold and diamond mines. And it has much of the typical zoo animals one would want to see in their natural setting, which has spawned a travel and tourist industry. I would anticipate there would be high interest in companies in Africa purchasing the dot Africa domain name version of their current website. So on a whole the dot Africa extension looks to be very successful just on pure size and the specialness of its keyword ‘Africa’.
