Two weeks ago we told you that PCadvisor.co.uk opened up a poll on the new gTLD program
Today total votes received broke the 2,500 mark and the results are pretty interesting.
With 2,506 votes cast 25% of all voters said they planned to buy a new gTLD domain name although only 3% said they were on any sort of pre-registration list.
42% of the voters said they were not interested.
29% of the voter said they have never heard of new gTLD’s.
Considering the fact that there are no new gTLD available to be purchased at the moment coupled with the fact that the new registries have started marketing or advertising yet, I think 25% of voters saying they will buy a new gTLD domain name, is a pretty good sign for the new gTLD registries.
Obviously at some point after the program rolls out and domains become available to be registered and massive marketing and ad dollars start flowing, the number of people who have no heard of new gTLD will shrink dramatically from the 42% with a percentage of those people going into the will buy column, meaning that number should go to 30% or higher.
What’s you take on the poll results so far?
