One of the key factor to be successful in domain names industry is to follow patterns. You need to stay ahead of everyone to pounce on the opportunity.

Let’s take a look at some of the latest trends which anyone could have followed to get the better of others in acquiring the digital assets.


VR/Virtual Reality

Virtual Reality is the latest technology that’s changing the way people interact with the digital world. It’s the underlying technology of next generation Videos, Movies & Games.

Now before virtual reality came into existence the combination of letters V & R meant less. Hence no one would have registered domains like, VRcardboard, ..etc.

But with the advent of technology, these names would be required in the industry and hence are an excellent investment opportunity.

The typical domains that would be useful are related to entertainment niche like, , ..etc .These are keyword domains which would be helpful for companies in marketing their product/service. Similarly to setup a great brand, companies would probably go for shorter ones like 4 Letters or less containing VR ex:, (for Experience VR),  ..etc.

The best way judge a trend is to monitor its sales. Here are top sales of VR related domains.

AR / Augmented Reality

AR / Augmented Reality can be thought of as Technology similar to that of VR but that creates a more realistic world in front of you. The technology consists of superimposing computer generated images on the users view of the real world.

Similar to VR  for  “AR+ two letters”  or “AR+keyword” domains would have higher value/demand if it’s related to entertainment sector. But there can also be various other applications of AR and for that you need to stay updated.

 To conclude I would like to say that the bottom line of all the above discussion remains the factor of end user adoption. The trend and mentality of end users in this industry are the secret sauce for finding valuable domains. Which extension do they tend to prefer? What type of domains do they like? When you can answer these questions, you would be able to improve your domain name investment.
You can apply this to any industry that is at a nascent stage and has a promising future.Stay updated with latest happenings.To conclude, extension, .com remains the king. If a company has great vision, then they need to spend the extra budget for the equally valuable domain. They need to have the Dot com!That’s it for from my side. I hope this article helps you to judge emerging trends and how you can encash on the early bird opportunity.Let me know if you have any questions in comments below.
