City and State Domains For Sale – GEO TLDs

With the introduction of all the new local TLD’s are the location based .com still worth what they were?

Over 10 years ago in 2005 lasvegas.com sold for $12 million up front with monthly payments that could have taken the price as high as $90 million.

But are those prices still valid now that there are so many local tlds available?

Some popular Local GEO TLDs include

  • .city
  • .nyc
  • .paris
  • .tokyo
  • .dubai
  • .roma
  • .sydney
  • .moscow

 

And many more are either live or being purposed including

.quebec (Quebec region)
.αθήνα (Athens)
.berlin for the city of Berlin, Germany
.wien for the city of Vienna, Austria

However the .com Geos still generate a substantial amount of traffic and interest.  Recently Josh Metnick, who buys and sells internet domain names  has put Illinois.com on the market.  These type of large cities do not get offered very often so we will be sure to watch how this progresses.
