I am amazed at how many times I see a hosting company, blogger, or domain investor refer to "the legacy" domains as if they have been anointed by some higher power. Fast forward 100 years from now and I can't imagine someone saying pick a .org over a .club because it is a legacy tld. I can foresee a time where someone might say pick a .org because it is a not for profit, or a .club because it is a member site about a passion, hobby, or buying club.
There is, I admit, at this stage much greater mindshare for legacy tld's like .org and .net. Yet there also a number of legacy tld's that have not performed as well as .club.
Based on Alexa top 1 million sites (as of today):
.Mobi has 662 sites
.travel has 184 sites
.asia has 407 sites
.biz has 2948
.club has 2163 sites (after being out for just over 3 years)
How are we different from the legacy tlds and is it time we started treat all tlds equally based on quality of name and marketing.
If you prick us (new gTLDs) do we not bleed like all the other gTLDs?
Didn't think my high school required reading of Shakespeare would ever come in handy.
