Ten outrageous #domain name predictions for 2018

It’s that time of the year again, predicting what will happen throughout 2018 in the domain industry.

Despite rumors that we often produce inaccurate predictions, we strive to do so with gusto, and always after deep data research of at least seven to eight minutes.

This year’s outrageous domain predictions arrive in a condensed format, just like Moses and the 10 commandments.

  • The Chinese domain market collapses, after China’s Communist Capitalism model fails, and democratic elections establish a pro-cryptocurrency government; ergo, Chinese domain investors move their investments to Bitcoin.
  • Rick Schwartz moves back to his old job as a furniture salesman, becoming Sofa King. After dropping Twitter for two weeks, he starts tweeting again, with the #sales and #sofakinggood hashtags.
  • Frank Schilling launches a commercial space agency, to take advantage of the Cayman Islands’ proximity to the equator, and rolls out the dot .Rocket gTLD. To the moon!
  • Elliot Silver renames his blog to DomainInvestingAndOtherServices.com to take advantage of poll results that supported the introduction of domain podcasting, cryptoblogging, dogsitting tips and info on surviving life during the rural Bawston winter.
  • George Verdugo buys Rams.com from Adam Dicker, owning it 100% so that DNJournal won’t have to correct that full ownership mistake.
  • Mike Berkens wins a lawsuit against Twitter, for $3.2 billion dollars, becoming the first domain billionaire.
  • All new gTLDs witness extraordinary growth in the new year, after Donald Trump tweets that .com is “horrible, terrible, overpriced, very bad.”
  • Richard Lau buys the TRAFFIC franchise from Rick Schwartz and makes domain conferences great again.
  • ICANN orders Verisign to lower the price of .com and .net registrations, they become available for $2 and $1 dollars a pop.
  • Iran punishes emoji domain registrants to death by hanging. We can only hope.

Happy new year and may all your wishes come true.
