Domain Name Industry Faces Identity Crisis

http://www.miamiherald.com/business/story/267525.html

QUOTE FROM ARTICLE : The domain name industry is highly profitable, but its leaders voiced concerns about its future at the T.R.A.F.F.I.C. Domain Conference & Expo in Hollywood on Wednesday.

Distresses brought up included the public's lack of understanding of the industry and the need for transparency in how companies measure the worth of a domain name. Matt Bentley, chief strategy officer at Sedo.com, said the domain industry is becoming a stronger part of the advertising industry, but firms are hesitant to put their links on generic domain pages full of ad links. Bentley said corporate advertisers don't fully understand how domain traffic works. ''It's not about branding a generic,'' said Jonathan Boswell, LeaseThis.com chief executive "It's about owning the words that are associated with your brand.''

''It's like getting on a merry go round,'' Schwartz said. ``You have to kind of time it right and look for an opening to get in. You can't just willy nilly jump on. You may hit a horse and fall right off.''

The domain industry got shocked by .eu and .mobi. Tens of millions of dollars went into 2 tlds that failed within months.
