    Dear BHW friends,

    I was browsing through the net when i saw that godaddy introduced new domain names like, .insure .work etc. So i decided to buy a domain name in the hopes that if i leave it for a few years it would be worth so much more.

    Anyway, the domain name that i bough is pleasent.club , i know it doesn't sound too good but its the only one i could afford.

    So what do you guys think, was this a good idea ? i wasn't gonna use the money on paypal to do anything so take that into consideration also.

    these new tld's won't be sparking a name gold rush anytime soon, so if that's what you want it for you fucked up.

    In my mind these new tld's are a branding exercise that'll look very very good in the serps. (I think it'll be a long time until they get good type in traffic, too many people will just stick a .com on the end)

    Like party said these are more for branding not for seo purposes still worth something to the right company though.

    Well thanks guys, And Magic5 That is why i bought it. I know it's not a great name and that it might not be worth anything any time soon but i only had 20 bucks in the paypal account which isn't much and i wasn't using it for anything that's why i did it. coz i thought that in the end i might lose 10 bucks but i might win a lot more.

    All domains have a "grace period" where you can ask your registrar to take back the domain and refund you within five days. I would do that and either save the money or buy a different domain.

    pleasent isn't even a word homie.

    I laughed so hard I blew snot on my keyboard.

    This is the best advice...get your money back, and if you still feel like throwing it away after that, just PM me and I will reply with my paypal email address for you to send it to me!

    If you're going to buy some sort of .club domain, make sure It's generic. I would never buy one though. But like a previous poster said, it could be valuable to a company.

    OP I think that this new LTDs can't have much value simply because the most important TLD right now is .com

    If you bought marketing.agency was another story.

    Damn! Why would you let out such a precious domain for others to register it! You're far too generous.

    Don't waste your time. It's a lot of work to buy and sell domains and your competition is smarter, faster and has deeper pockets. The day those tlds came out all the valuable domains were gone.

    That's not to say you can't find a nice name and find some dude to give you a pile of cash for it - it can happen. But the more likely outcome is that you sit on it forever and or let it expire down the road.
