.anything – What's your big idea?
Hundreds of savvy entrepreneurs have taken advantage of the new Top-Level Domain Program and are set to capitalise on the greatest revenue generation opportunity presented since the birth of the Domain Name System. A generic word TLD presents an opportunity to secure a slice of the multi-billion dollar domain name industry, forever.
Considering the most popular Top-Level Domain, .com, generates revenues of over US$600 million per year, from approximately 100 million domain name registrations, a new generic word Top-Level Domain that achieves even 1% of .com's market share is a revenue generation opportunity well worth contemplating.
A research report commissioned by ARI Registry Services found strong potential for entrepreneurs to monetise second-level domains within a new Top-Level Domain, with 49% of small businesses describing themselves as likely to register a web address under a new domain. The report found entrepreneurs are poised to make multi-million dollar annual returns for certain generic words. More information can be found in our research report here.
