Domain discovery site adds more TLDs and monetization features.
I’m having fun watching OneWord.Domains develop.
Steven Tey developed the site to help people find available one word domain names. You can listen to an interview with him in DNW Podcast #287.
Tey, a student, has incorporated feedback from users and is testing various monetization strategies.
For example, recently-added top level domain names are behind a paywall. It’s a modest fee and some people are signing up. But the model I like more is that domain registries can pay an annual fee to whitelist their domain. For $500, they can move it in front of the paywall. .To has been whitelisted.
Registries can choose where registration links go. For example, Donuts could whitelist a domain (or a bunch of them) and send buyers to Name.com, a registrar it owns.
OneWord.Domains also lets people feature their own one word domains for sale starting at just $10.
