Looking at some recent domain registrations and trends.
I am of two minds about the “new normal” quarantine periods and social distancing, and domain name investments.
One one hand everything most domain investors and the domain industry have encouraged – online businesses, e-commerce, own your own online presence; is now mandatory. The new action could lead to more businesses, and setting up online initiatives should require more domain names.
But, dropping the GDP of the world 10-15% means spending will take a hit also.
So lets see whats being registered. I ran two sets of 5 names on DomainScope.
“Learning”, “quarantine” and “delivery” had the biggest up-trends. I ran 90 days to show the normal track of many of these words. “online”. “tele” and “virtual” were string in the second group.
I expected Zoom names to be higher as it has rapidly become a part of the English language, always a challenge for a brand. I do predict it will be on some upcoming new words added to dictionaries.
