Sorry if this has been asked / discussed before but it has crossed my mind a few times recently. Obviously as technology advances so will the internet and already we are seeing many changes in the way people use it. A lot of people connect with brands on social media but i don't think that will replace the need for business pages to exist so i don't see this as a real threat to the future of domains. Domain names are basically the backbone of the internet and have been for the last 30 or so years but is there anything on the horizon that could slowly diminish the use of domain names? Personally i think they will still be in use for the rest of most of our lifetimes but i'm interested to see if anyone thinks otherwise as it's interesting to consider potential replacements.
