Moving Away From .com

With the market now being flooded with hundreds of new Generic Top Lovel Domains (gTLD) should we start to think about moving away from .com and .co.uk?
The web is quite a saturated market place and it seems that some businesses are going to extra lengths to make their businesses stand out. Google has recently purchased the .app gTLD for m, .tech recently went for just shy of m and .baby was snapped up for a cool m - these examples show that some of the new domains are being treated like gold dust!
The technology industry has lovingly adopted the .io originally designated as a domain for residents of the Indian Ocean and a lot of businesses are seeing great returns from simple but clever new web domains. Whilst some of the new domains don’t have quite as much authority as a .com or a .co.uk they’re certainly making an impression.
Previously we used to hyphenate multiple words in domain names but now we can come up with some rather interesting alternatives such as birthday.cards or would-you-like-a.coffee or even bradley-is.cool and bradley-is-my.name. So next time you buy a domain name think outside the box and look at the marketing potential of all these new domains.
