3D technology is finally becoming really popular and some ‘domainers’ are registering any 3d+word combo that they can think of, this is probably no news to you. So, are there any good ‘new technology’ domains left to register? My opinion is yes, but they are few and far between. I shudder when I see people sharing long lists of 3d domain names they own in obscure TLD’s or word combinations that really don’t make sense. The fact is that the best 3d names were reserved long ago before the real speculating even started. Another technology that is on the horizon is augmented reality, which is a niche I have seen little discussion about amongst domainers. After a little research, of course the best AR (popular abbreviation) and augmented reality domains are taken.
So, what’s the reason for this post? To warn people not to fall into the hand regging craze that usually follows new trends? Maybe. However, even being late to the game doesn’t mean you are completely out of it. I do think there are opportunities to make money in these niches if you are careful. My inspiration for this post came from my own hand registrations. That’s right, I registered my first 3d and AR domain names today. When I speculate in niches like these I don’t register loads of domains and I only stick to .com. There were a small handful of domains I thought were worthy of registering after some research and from those few I chose one from each niche to get me started. The domains are below, let me know your thoughts good or bad on the names and what you think about this type of domain investing.
