You May Not Believe in New Gs But This Guy Had No Problem Spending $500K on Them

Jan 10 2017

Evidently not everyone believes the Internet is moving to voice controls very soon.  Rightside had a great interview with one of their biggest buyers, Attorney Charles Gucciardo of The Gucciardo Law Firm, PLLC,  about why he was investing in new GTLDs to the tune of half a million dollars. The reason is simple, he feels it’s good investment for his law business.

 

Charles is essentially an enduser.  Buying domains that will hopefully draw clients to his firm.  Names like

  • Dui.attorney
  • Dwi.attorney
  • Injury.attorney
  • Malpractice.lawyer
  • Medicalmalpractice.lawyer
  • Autoaccident.nyc
  • Malpractice.nyc
  • Superlawyer.nyc
  • Bestattorney.nyc

In my opinion this is exactly what new Gs are for.  These names would cost millions in the dot com and if built out, have the ability to pay for themselves through sales of services.  They weren’t meant to be resold.  They were purchased to be used.  At least initially.  Charles Gucciardo will be speaking at NamesCon so we’ll find out exactly what he plans to do and more information about the buys.   The panel is on January 23rd at 2pm called “Investing in New TLDs: Making Money in the Short Term and Long Term”

    Great for seo but they for sure will cause accidents when people try and type those extra loooong names into their mobile devices. Oh wait maybe that was the plan. More business! !! Muaaahahha!! Diabolical those lawyers.
