Is it your opinion that the era of domaining has ended and domainers should relinquish their domains?


The pessimistic and negative attitude towards domaining is not new and usually comes from individuals who wrongly assume that their situation applies to everyone. It is wise to investigate the credibility of such claims by scrutinizing the poster's past posts.

It's important to remain optimistic despite the challenges. Furthermore, some argue that the domaining era has ended, .com is no longer relevant, and web3 is a myth. Nonetheless, it's essential to remain positive and move forward.


It is possible that the decline of domaining only applies to your personal experience, and not to the industry as a whole. Your comment could be true for any business venture, as making poor decisions often leads to frustration and disillusionment. Nevertheless, it is not appropriate to try to convince an entire community based solely on individual struggles, especially considering the numerous success stories in the domain industry.

Could you provide some context or evidence to support your statement? Without any substantiation, it appears to be an unfounded opinion stemming from an unsuccessful attempt.

I apologize if I come across as impolite, but taking the time to clarify your point of view would benefit all readers, including yourself.

The internet is home to 96% of the world's population, and this has led to a high demand for unique and memorable website names. Despite its apparent simplicity, finding such a name is not always easy.
As a result, a market has emerged where people register catchy domain names with the intention of reselling them for profit. This activity, known as domaining, is considered legal as long as well-known brands are not used.

However, cybersquatting goes beyond this as it involves registering domains that contain the name of a third-party company, brand, or trademark with the intention of reselling them. This practice is illegal and poses a considerable risk. While some may try to justify it under the guise of being 'domain name investors', this often conceals piracy and even blackmail.
