    Maybe. Maybe not. Domains with shorter names and apt for a brand to set in, stays pricey.

    Maybe if its a 3-4 letter domain or something catchy. If companies want a particular domain then they are willing to pay any amount for it.

    Well, it's imarkzuckerberg.com (an "i" at the front), not markzuckerberg.com. If I was him, I would buy either the best domain (my exact name and surname) or nothing, no imarkzuckerberg, nor xmarkzuckerberg, etc. Besides that, what would I need it for as Mark Z.? I don't need to promote myself etc. and I can spend that $100K in better way than buying a domain name at that price - personally (still as Mark Z. AND as a businessman) I'd prefer to buy markzuckerberg.me probably for much lower price and spend rest of the money on building something cool on that domain.

    To be clear: that is just my opinion. I'm not telling the domain is not worth it, but I would just not buy it. Again, even though I earned about $10K selling premium .CO domains (1-word names mostly that I pre-registered when the .co tld was coming out few years ago), I don't consider myself as a domain expert.

    I have big doubt there are over 800 domain name extensions. Do I need to buy all extensions? for a unique name. that means if I use one name "eg: zzz.com" I made this into the big brand and trustable site. if any other person buys the same site name with different extensions like "zzz.co". what I can do he will use my brand power and he will spoil my business trust... I can't buy 800 extensions that cost over $1Million.. solve my problem...fast
