People don't want to be educated on new Gs.

They want .com or ccTLD. I know @jmcc research would agree.
Yep. The new gTLDs are struggling at a country level. Some of the geo new gTLDs are OK in terms of renewal but even .COM struggles in the country markets where there is a strong ccTLD. The new registration volume per month for the ccTLDs in those markets is generally over twice that of .COM. This because most business is local and the local ccTLD is about as local as one can get (apart from a city/regional geo gTLD).

Yes, most people don't understand how much local business and search matters.

I ran to the small local hardware store to get copies of keys made. Can't do that online. 🔑🗝️

The Irish market, the UK market and most of the other EU ccTLD markets. The .COM is lucky because it is the de facto US ccTLD (the .US is the official one).

I find ccTLDs with their meaningful counterparts in English as abbreviated terms quite interesting, like:

.cc ( to CC' someone)
.ai (artificial intelligence)
.ie (id est, to clarify a meaning)
.io (input/output)

and likely some more out there. Actually maybe a lot more since ccTLDs are always two characters and so many terms have abbreviated forms nowadays. VC as "venture capitalist" grew on me though never invested into it.

Don't care, .com is king. 👑

So the thread died because .com is king? If so, what was the point?

And how did I forget about .TV.. there's a powerhouse ccTLD if there ever was one.

If the .com isn't available and I want that exact word (no prefix or suffix) I'll go for .io ,now depending on the purpose or niche of this name ,if .io isn't available then .org/.net

nothing says it better than .Online....ask any educated consumer.
You aren't serious..?? I'm not dissing .online, but any "educated consumer" immediately rolls to .com. Anyhow, your fallback is dot-online, very good. I know tons of sites that use "wordonline".com where I think shortening it to the new G' makes far more sense.

Depending on if I am buying a domain for me or some client that we are working for. If it's possible it is also a good idea to buy a local domain if .com is occupied. But if you are operating globally, the .net isn't that bad as well.

I've used .net for several websites.
