Stock investment firm Trefis.com issued a report on Verisign (VRSN) today entitled “The New Domain Name Game” and concluded when it comes to new gTLD’s (new domain name extensions):
“It appears that VeriSign doesn’t have much to worry about, at the moment, when it comes to the introduction of new domain name extensions.
“Even though the company’s market share has been reduced (52.5% in 2007 to 46.6% in 2014) and will probably continue to decline in the future due to higher competition and more alternatives, new gTLDs may not turn out to be the threat that was once feared.”
