Yes, just a few days after .GURU goes live and already people are testing the waters putting .GURU domains up for sale on popular website and domain name marketplace Flippa. There are currently 13 .GURU domains listed for sale on Flippa, they are:
As I’ve said many time I honestly don’t see the new gTLDs having great resale value so I’d be surprised if any of these sell for big bucks. Currently only two .GURU domains have bids with Tattoos.guru with one $100 bid and UnsecuredLoan.guru with one $20 bid. I think most of these new .GURU owners are going to be pretty disappointed at the potential resale value of their names. That being said, there’s no denying that there is a lot of speculation happening in the new gTLD space and it only takes a couple of people who think an asset is valuable to dramatically drive up the price.
Given how successful .INFO has been on Flippa with names registered for $1.99 regularly selling for over $5,000 it’s not a stretch to think that a few select gTLDs could see some nice liquidity, the million dollar question is, which ones?
Whether you love or hate the new gTLDs you should still be watching, observing, and taking in what happens. If you’re already making more money than you know what to do with then don’t change a thing. Just make sure not to ignore what’s going on in the domain space because there’s no denying that things are changing…
