Can the .life domain get traffic?

    Hi All,

    I wanted the domain meaning of life - that's what the blog is about. Life under the big ideas that shape our lives capitalism, consumerism and romanticism. www.meaningoflife.life

    .com was available for $32,000.

    .life cost me $32.

    Is it possible to build a sustainable blog using .life though? Even with branding like "where about life not business .life not .com"

    Thoughts appreciated.

    life is in the domain name, so i don't know why you would think it would be a good idea to also have it in the extension.

    to answer your question any extension can get traffic.

    I'd say a better combo would be MeaningOf.life. That way of making domain names seems to be trendy nowadays. Note, as far as SEO is concerned, I don't see any reason a .life wouldn't rank as well as any other general domain extension.

    I'm with Jasontn, I'd have done meaningof.life (although it's likely a premium domain name). We recently bought a .life domain that will be launched late in Q2 of 2017 and we don't imagine any issues pushing traffic to it. Social drives the world now and nobody even looks at domain names on social anymore.

    People don't trust new TLDs so I don't recommend these.
