Two new gTLD’s that will be launching into general availability on October 8th 2014, .Attorney and .Lawyer premium domain names are carrying the highest costs of any extension we have seen so far by a mile.
Both extensions are being launched with an Early Access Program (EAP).
The good news is that very few domains are being reserved by the registry.
The bad news is for those domains labeled as premium domains by the registry, .Attorney and .Lawyer domains are names are carrying the highest premium priced registration and renewal costs we have ever seen.
Consider Divorce.Attorney (we own DivorceAttorneys.com)
The domain has a premium registration and renewal fee of $55,000 at Enom.
Yes $55,000 a year, every year
If you want to grab the domain name on the first day of EAP it will set up back $66,000.
If you would have asked me yesterday how much I wanted for divorceattorneys.com I would have quoted $350K now the price is higher.
Likewise Accident.Attorney (we own AccidentAttorney.com) is priced at $55,000 a year.
We have been quoting $500K for the .com but now the price is higher.
$55,000 is actually the price for many generic .attorney and .lawyer domain names including Trial.Attorney, (another domain we own the .com in) injury.attorney, personalinjury.attorney, Florida.attorney and DUI.Lawyer to name just a few.
If you drill down to some lesser domains, the pricing is still plenty high.
The.Attorney is priced at $2,760 a year, as is floridapersonalinjury.lawyer.
BocaRaton.Attorney is priced at $1,660 a year.
Compare SandiegoPersonalInjuryLawyers.com which just sold on Afternic in April for $1,000 to SandiegoPersonalInjury.Lawyer which is priced at $2,760 a year.
The domains MiamiPersonalInjurylLwyers.com, HoustonPersonalInjuryLawyers.com, DallasPersonalInjuryLawyers.com all sold this year for $1,000 and are all priced at $2,760 per year in the new gTLD form
I just won an auction on Namejet.com yesterday for $210 for the domain name MississippiDuiLawyer.com.
If you want the domain name MississippiDui.Lawyer, its going to set you back; you guessed it right, $2,760 per year.
I own one of the largest portfolio’s of legal domains in the world, so no one is hoping that all of the premium .lawyer and .attorney domains sell on the first day of EAP for these prices
But back on planet earth, I have just raised the prices of all my .legal com’s which now look like the .Bargains of the century.
