The Next BIG Thing Is 3D: Who Owns Best Domains? (Hint: Its not Me, Frank, Kevin Or Even Rick )

I sure blew this one.

But at least I’m not alone.

The next big thing is going to be 3D.

3D was the talk of the Consumers Electronic Show in Vegas in January.

3d Tv’s are already on sale and the World Cup was broadcast by Directv in 3D.

ESPN is launching its own 3D channel any day now on Directv.

Yup its going to be huge and I missed to boat completely.

However it doesn’t look like I’m alone.

Looking through the best 3D domains I could think of it doesn’t look like Frank, Kevin or even Rick  locked up any of the best 3D domains or at least what I consider to be the best of the best.

I thought it would be interesting to take a look to see who owns the best of the 3D domains.

Lets start with the 5 star domain for the topic,  3D.com.

Its owned under privacy at Network Solutions.

The domain name was created all the way back in 1994.

The domain goes to a Net Sol, parked page so whoever owns it, isn’t making any money off of it, and it does get thousands of visitors a month according to Compete and Alexa.

A Waste.

3DTV.COM Is owned by an end user, Brad Beckerman of Beverly Hills, California

Its actually a pretty cool flash site you should check it out.

3DTELEVISION.COM and 3DGlasses.com are owned by an end user, Deep Vision 3D, of  Hollywood, CA, although the 3dtelevision.com domain is not resolving properly for me the company sells 3DGlasses on the 2nd domain.

The domain, 3-DGLASSES.COM is owned by an end user, Theatric Support of  Studio City, California

3DTVS.COM is registered to Jon Schultz of  Blue String Ventures, Inc.

The domain, 3-dtv.com goes to a parked page and is under privacy.

Ted Amaradidis of Delray Beach Florida, owns  3-DMOVIES.COM and 3Dmovies.com and 3Dmovies.tv

3DTELEVISIONS.COM is owned by domainer,  Gregg Ostrick of  GNO, Inc.

3DSPORTS.COM is owned by our good friend Chad Folkening of  Ecorp.

3DMOVIETHEATERS.COM is owned by Ralf Schumacher, who is another fellow I know pretty well.

3DTHEATERS.COM is owned by a Daniel Symmes of  Woodland Hills, CA and is another domain not resolving properly.

The domain name,  3DADVERTISING.COM is owned by our good friend Stephen Douglas of Success Click.

The domain 3dprojectors.com is owned by Scott Bennett of  Glasgow who is using it for a blog.

3DGAMES.COM is owned by another good friend and ICANN’s worst nightmare, George Kirikos.

3D.TV and 3-D.Tv are both owned by a Guy named Ben Geren.

(If you are not familiar with Mr. Geren He also owns some of the best possible .FM domains,  including Rock.FM, HipHop.FM, Classical.FM, and Country.FM, ClassicRock.FM, and Oldies.FM just to name a few as well as some pretty good .TV Domains including, wireless.tv, channels.tv. concerts.tv and cinema.tv)

Congrats boys, you own part of the future and you all kicked my ass.

    3D is indeed a very hot subject. I can see ICANN launching .3D at some point in the future.

    There were at least 441 publicly known sales with “3D”.

    The most prominent of course 3d(dot)come and 3dprinter(dot)net.

    Sharp debuts recorder for 4K TV shows
    http://www.pcworld.com/article/2157141/sharp-debuts-recorder-for-4k-tv-shows.html

    A Sharp spokeswoman said, “This year will be the start of 4K broadcasting and we wanted to go ahead of the pack, and that’s why we announced the industry’s first 4K recorder with a 4K receiver function.”

    Now THATs a 4k recorder! The TU-UD1000 unit will have a hard disk recording capacity of 1TB, which means it will be able to store about 53 hours of 4K TV shows under the trial broadcasting system. That’s what you need to go with your 4k tv, @ Mike Berkens – a 4k recorder! Glad the dot com was able to stay within the family, so to speak, of future trend domain investors. Futrs dropped it, and I registered 4kRecorder.com!

  3. Louise says

    Just spent the last hour registering the twitter handle, 4K Recorder, and the Youtube channel! I haven’t figured out what I am going to do, yet.

  4. Louise says

    Look at the twitter site: http://twitter.com/4krecorder

    It’s poetry to own the exact match twitter handle and youtube channel! The domain industry has watched me flounder around for years. But I’m still trying to carve my own path amidst changes, upheaval, and – can’t deny! – some disillusionment. Why am I so positive?

  5. Louise says

    Hit me! I let DualChargers.com expire, and BestSmartTVs.com, because cigarette chargers for two devices is low profit, but I did a search, and dual chargers are big news for Tesla owners, electric car racing, and boating! Google search for Best smart tvs yields lists called, best smart tvs, and has many ads. I couldn’t let them go!

    Congrats, @ GilesColey, on your five figures of German cloud domain sales!

    Do you want to know what I think will be unveiled at the Apple event September 9th? Haven’t heard or read about it. Some say, the iPhone 6, and perhaps a iWatch. But the Mercury News published an article desribing construction of a huge, 3-story temporary building, as an adjunct to the Flint Center of the Performing Arts, where is first unveiled the Mac in 1985:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2B-XwPjn9YY

    so, Apple indicates this will be of historical significance. I think I know, just like I discerned Facebook would rocket to at least 65/share, though, that took longer than one year. Do you want to hear?

      As a Mac convert many years ago, Steve is deeply missed.

      The larger iphone which as an older person I’m getting is at least 2 years over due, not that they aren’t going to sell a ton of them, but they could have sold a ton 2 years ago and not play catch up with Samsung, as far as the iwatch not a huge fan but Samsung beat them to the punch there too. I don’t see the temporary building moving the stock 1/8 of a percent

        The long lost footage of Steve Jobs’ introduction of the mac shows what a master marketer he was!

        The video didn’t appear on my previous comment, because you have to remove the, “s,” from the https to get it to show on your blog – appreciate being able to show the video!

        It may tick up quite a bit, if MY intuition is correct:
        Kids, Septermber 9th, Apple will be introducing its home-automation system, for security, to steam live video of kids arriving home from school, or leaving the house, with its hidden cameras near the entrance. If it adopts nfc, Apple phones can even be geo devices, allowing parents to see the whereabouts of their children at all times!

        Apple Home Automation will enable benefits, such as:

        Expect a family member to visit, while you’re at work? Remotely unlock the front door, after you ascertain their presence via phone and camera.

        Monitor package deliveries and their theft or safety, plus receive pool alerts – is the water disturbed? and burgler alarms!

        Aside from security, Apple’s automated home, “kit,” app will also control lights, thermostat settings, and any appliances you choose to connect, via remote hub. Automated home software can control shading via blinds and curtains.

        Who has the domain, RemoteHub.com? RemoteHub.com is in the MostWantedDomains showcase, administered by Mr. Michael Berkens of World Wide Media and popular domain blog, theDomains.com. It is the era of the remote hub.

        This is from:

        Party’s On, and Party’s Over! Apple Plans Historical September 9th Announcement
        emergingdomains.com/partys-on-and-partys-over-apple-plans-historical-september-9th-announcement

        an article I composed while it is still September 1st, California-time. I wanted to time-stamp it, by quoting it in part, here.

        If my intuition is correct, Apple stock might have quite an uptick in coming weeks, as techies figure out the benefits of Apple Home Automation, but it won’t break $1000.00, as someone else predicted in the past, but was proved wrong.

    This post is not an Apple post or anything in tech post, it is a post related to 3D, so let’s try to keep it on topic. Thank you.

  9. Louise says

    All due respect, @ Raymond, don’t censure me on here, because this thread got to be a catch-all for all things future trend, such as augmented reality, flexible, or bendy display, graphene, 4K, mobile wallet, cloud, and more, with people sharing news of sales, or volunteering their hand regs. It’s part of conversation. Therefore, speculating as to Apple’s forthcoming announcement is pertinent to this thread. If my comment etiquette is rough, so you deleted my comment on your Apple announcement article, I apologize.

    You would be deleting at least a third of the comments here, if you strictly kept the topic on 3D. Ask Mike.

    Sincerely,
    Louise :)

      This sale (3dfashion.com) has less to do with 3D Printing and more to do with Augmented Reality.
      That is not to say that the potential use could not to be 3D print. But in this case, it is not.
      With Augmented reality, folks can stand in front of a 3D camera while virtually trying on cloths on sale at online and brick and mortar retailers and display themselves actually wearing the cloths on a monitor so they can see what “THEY” look like in them before they buy/order. This tech is already in use and about to go mainstream in 2015.

  11. MAGOOgle says

    Well, This thread is several years old and still at it.
    I do wonder about some of you who think things like 3Dpizza.com is going to have major value to any end user. But if you can convince some enough to flip it, than hats off to ya.

    Those of you that have 3D domains in the Printer area will have to wait a few years yet for widespread adoption.
    You will know it’s time when home users are buying sinter printers.
    Those of you who still have 3D domains in the “media area” have some hope in value in the very near future.
    Because many of you missed the other tech that died once and is being delivered to the masses as I speak and it’s called Virtual Reality.
    3D domains in the area of media have a importance here. As other items like 3D omni-spherical video is about to be delivered for use with these devices.
    Yes, 4k displays on your face and 3D cameras and media to feed it. There is no need to wait, it is happening NOW!

    Have you missed this one also ?
    It is very hard to hand registrar a domain in this area now.
    But there are some still around if you use your imagination to the developments to come.
    2015 is going to be a wild ride for domains.
    This tech will usher in faster and broader than SMARTPHONES.
    Did you miss it ? or are you smart enough to still be holding the VR domains of the past (90’s) from when the technology was never delivered. Part of the reason so many are skeptical now.

    For reference, please google “oculus vr” and “samsung project beyond” for a start. You will soon see there are going to be major releases of this tech from very large company’s (google,apple,sony) and many smaller ones to follow. As I speak, Gear VR is being released from Samsung. The Oculus Rift (driving force in the market) probably in May of 2015. It is so big that Google lost many developers for it’s project glass to the VR development company’s. So that project glass will be extended for quite a while until the other boom with VR is over.
    I manged to acquire 3dgoggle, argoggle and vrgoggle in .com’s before any of this started to take shape. But I now sport many 3d and vr domains as it relates to media and devices/tech used. Haptics is a area still open for domain investment.
    my final $.02 on the matter as this launches !

    Being the proud owner of 3DFashionNetwork.com would love to know how much 3DFashion.com sold for Thanks..

  13. Louise says

    DM and Biotech domain owners, if you want to list them here or email me, I’ll create a list to include in an article for EmergingDomains, and if I send out a promotional snailmail and email.

    You have

    I have

    • dmpartners@yahoo.com says

      Thanks Louise, Yes we have 3DMamogram.org the .com was snatched up but being in the medical field it makes no sense.

  14. dmpartners@yahoo.com says

    YEP that’s what we envisioned when we bought the 125 3D.coms back in 2009 From 3DGlobalNetwork.com to 3DVirtualNetwork.com and everything in between. We saw that motorcycle sitting on our desk as we were logged on to 3D Motorsports.com . 3D .coms are soon to be worths hundreds of thousands of dollars . We are ready

  15. dmpartners@yahoo.com says

    Microsoft 10 just made all of the new GTLD’s worthless. Hows that for a domain extension killer.

  16. dmpartners@yahoo.com says

    In fact it may be time for the IRS to audit ICANN who claims they are a non profit organization. Would love to see the books and what they did with the 220 millions dollars they are collecting from the 1200 new GTLDs Does not sound like non profit to me.

    • Raymond Hackney says

      Non Profits can make money, ICANN makes money for the non profit purpose it was set up for, Domain Names on the Internet.

      Nonprofit corporations, by definition, exist not to make money but to fulfill one of the purposes recognized by federal law: charitable, educational, scientific, or literary. Under state and federal tax laws, however, as long as a nonprofit corporation is organized and operated for a recognized nonprofit purpose and has secured the proper tax exemptions, it can take in more money than it spends to conduct its activities.

      In other words, your nonprofit can make a profit. Whether or not a nonprofit’s income is taxable depends on whether the activities are related to the nonprofit’s purpose.
      Making a Profit From “Related” Activities

      Tax-exempt nonprofits often make money as a result of their activities and use it to cover expenses. In fact, this income can be essential to an organization’s survival. As long as a nonprofit’s activities are associated with the nonprofit’s purpose, any profit made from them isn’t taxable.

      Let’s take as an example a group called Friends of the Library, Inc. It’s a 501(c)(3) nonprofit (which means it has a federal tax exemption), organized to encourage the appreciation of literature and to raise money for the support and improvement of the local public library. It makes a profit from a lecture series featuring famous authors and from an annual volunteer-run sale of donated books.

      Because these activities are educational and literary in nature, they do not jeopardize the group’s tax-exempt status, and the proceeds from them are not taxable. The organization may use this income for its own operating expenses (including salaries for officers and staff) or for the benefit of the local library. What it cannot do is distribute any of the income to the nonprofit’s officers, directors, or others connected with Friends of the Library.

    Did you know every year, 1 in a 1000 infants are born with missing fingers, and about 9,000 children receive amputations from lawn mower accidents? State-of-the-art prosthetic replacements that are battery powered cost thousands of dollars and don’t work well, and kids outgrow them. Enter the Raptor Hand or the Cyborg Beast. They’re so cool, other kids want them.

    Flexing the wrist pulls on cable tendons, so hands will open and close.

    Now, kids who couldn’t formerly, because of missing a couple fingers, can ride bikes and play baseball.
