Domain name value predictions for the 2020s

There is good indication .coms and .nets will return a steady 5% yearly growth for premium names during the next decade. The new and healthy market in one-word .io and .co domains will continue upward. But older gTLDs will not see a hold in value in this new decade. It’s also time to sell lesser combo-word .coms and reinvest in one-word paradigms. Here’s Blotter’s domain name values predictions for the 2020s:


  • Owning 2 or 3 one-word .coms will yield a bigger return on investment than 20-100 combo-word .coms

  • One-word .io or .co domains have better value than combo-word .coms

  • International financial market indices will heavily influence domain name values

  • One-word .com names sell for the highest amounts

  • Domain name values increase when new buyers are involved
