According to a new report by DomainRegistrar.info, (adobe reader) the hottest gift of the holiday season may well be a domain name.
“”As we enter the 2009 Holiday Season, DomainRegistrar.info wanted to track another growing trend, Domain Names being given as gifts.
Highlights of the results are:
- A 158% increase in respondents who would now consider giving a Domain Name as a gift over those who had previously considered giving a Domain Name as a gift.
- More specific to the 2009 Holiday Season, a 92% increase in respondents who will consider giving a Domain Name as a gift in the 2009 Holiday Season. This increase is over those respondents who had previously considered giving a Domain Name as a gift.
- 70% of the respondents indicated they would appreciate receiving a Domain Name as a gift. A strong indication that Domain Names are well received as gifts.
“”DomainRegistrar.info will continue to track this market segment on an annual basis.””
I honestly never thought of giving someone a present of a domain name, but it does make a lot of sense.
A cool personal gift.
Now for the bad news, according to the report it is based on only “200 global anonymous respondents”.
However “”The IP addresses of the respondents were recorded to ensure only one response per IP address was included in the results.”
