Remembering .SKI from NamesCon 2016

R

.SKI was an interesting new TLD dedicated to ski and snow sports. It was launched to give those who love ski and snow sports a unique extension for their web addresses. Over 150 million skiers globally are online and looking for their next adventure. .SKI domains are the best way to reach them online.

With multiple sales in the NamesCon 2016 Auction, dot SKI registered its presence.

Stats on .SKI sales :

  • The top sale of 2016 NamesCon was Jet.ski, which sold for $12,000.
  • NameBio recorded 10 sales of $100+ for a total of  $21.6K with an average sale price of $ 2,155.
  • Members of the snow sports community and domain name investor market purchased these high profile names at below-market rates
    • Jet.ski | $12,000 
    • Love.ski | $10,000 
    • Travel.ski | $7,000

But in the next 2-3 years, the extension didn’t take off as expected. Not even single .SKI sale has been reported after 2016.

Is this the end of .SKI?  Did this extension miss something?
