Domain Investing in new gtlds

 We're all seing the rollout of new top level domains (Gtld's)  but the big raging debate is whether these new extensions are a good investment or not.  Anyone who has read our articles realizes that we have a bias towards new extensions as shown in our long term support for .pro and other non .com extensions.

Its always been our focus to promote alternate domain names for this very same reason and .pro is one of the extensions that is on a slow trajectory to rise in the coming years as the general population becomes tired of .com that could become a little stale, tired and old in the future.

The domain industry is on the cusp of truly understanding the value of new domain extensions...What domain should your business buy?
