Rightside launched two new gTLD domain name extensions into general availability (GA) yesterday .Video and .Sale
Including all domain name registered in the Sunrise Period by trademark holders and those that paid a higher fee during the Early Access Period (EAP) to register domains before GA .Video wound up with 3,271 domain name registered and .Sale has 2,160 registered domain names.
.Video domain name registrations are priced at $34.99 while .Sale is priced at $22.99 at Enom.com
Rightside now has fully launched 35 new gTLD’s and its most the new domain extension with the most registrations is .Rocks, which has almost 50K registrations and .Ninja which has around 48,000 registered domain names.
Those preliminary results don’t look so good. I just found several decent keyword .video and .sale available at dynadot for cheap prices (.video is $25 there)…and I didn’t pull the trigger. For end-users, some of these will get picked-up, but for domain investors?…doubtful

I think the .video space has pretty good potential for both extensive development and investment purposes. Globally relevant and a big slice of what internet users are interested in.
No, not really. There’s already .tv, which is shorter than .video and is universally known in most languages, and it still hasn’t shown real potential beyond great keywords or two to three characters. Based on this along, I’d say .video doesn’t stand a chance.
