What do we call something 8 years old? Not new, not a baby, not even a toddler. While there is speculation about when the next round of “Not legacy TLD’s” will be introduced, let’s take a look back at the first 7 to launch in 2014.

In a post I wrote, “It’s a profit deal” I checked in on the first 7 when they were just 4 months old.

Here is what the numbers looked like:

.bike 11,308

.clothing 11,505

.guru 59,280

.holdings 4,932

.plumbing 4,363

.singles 7,012

.ventures 5,916

Over the past 8 years the sales for the first 7 have not been super exciting.

.bike 10 sales for $16.6K
.clothing 2 sales for $381
.guru 55 sales for $76.6K
.holdings sales 5 for $29.8k
.plumbing 0 sales Namebio does not even have them in the drop down list.
.singles 1 sale for $2,760
.ventures 22 sales for $48.7k
