    Hey Guys I just came across this great site, whilst at the Dntrade Meetup, for searching for cheaper prices on our domains

    https://tld-list.com/tlds-from-a-z

    Do you have any other good tools for searching nTLD's

    Interesting to see the price variations especially stuff like .xyz and a lot of the others with large volumes where the price is often $1 at the cheapest registrars.

    Registries are just going down the slope, first they targeted domainers, then spammers, give it a couple of years and they'll be chasing used car salesmen and lawyers.....Actually they already targeted the lawyers come to think of it.

    Agree devaluation of pricing attracts spammers like bee's to honey. But asking too much also is not a good Marketing Strategy.

    I tend to think the prices around $1 are just done to try and boost numbers, inexperienced domainers, spammers, that kind of thing.

    Not sure why, maybe .tk gets filter heavily in spam filters? Maybe it takes too long to register? Must must be some reason why all spammers aren't using it.

    Apparently 90% of the worlds spam originates and comes from America, https://www.spamhaus.org/rokso/

    Spammers probably don't use tk for the very reason that when you get either good rankings or traffic, they close your account and use the site for their own ads, or sell it to someone for profit. http://www.techelex.org/why-not-use-dot-tk-domain/

    I reckon channeled through it for sure. Certainly some big companies that control outsources elsewhere to do the spamming for them. Here are some stats for you.
    Top spamming countries
    Country % of Spam
    United States 16.2%
    China 15.9%
    Vietnam 6.2%
    Germany 6.0%
    India 4.8%

    I suppose you have to know that comment spam in WordPress is not the only culprit, that site also refers to malware viruses, emails, etc all considered unsolicited spam. And we don't really know how many transactions of information or what data they are really using to base that off.
