First Hosting, then Go Daddy and now King drop .com from brand.

Some of the new gTLD’s may get some nice use possibly, like (.web, .site, and a few generic extensions), but as I thought about it a while back, why would anyone else in the online world want to own a generic keyword domain followed by .amazon, or .google, or any of those companies beside the comapny itself? There isn’t as much free range in those right of the dot extensions as there is with .com, .net, .org, .info, etc. Comapnies rebranding there logo without the .com in the logo doesn’t mean they don’t still want to own or use the .com in my opinion. It just means they are taking the .com off of their logo. I can understand them dropping it off their logo, because if they own the .com, they don’t need it on their logo. In my opinion none of these companies will drop their .com extension if they already own it, and if they do, it will most likely be an expensive mistake.
