I'm not interested in investing in domain names. To the countrary, I wish there was some kind of policy that required domain names to actually be used for something within a year of being registered, to avoid domain name squatters buying up domains just to sell them on without adding any value.

 

To the contrary, I wish there was some kind of policy that required domain names to actually be used for something within a year of being registered,

But there is such normative. However, it's easy to skip that bullet by creating a fake site/companies.

Now, if you want to buy, for example, self.app (it sounds like a good domain), then you could also check other domains. In my case, I purchased another .com but also the .org and .net

about self.app , namecheap says it is taken. Did you purchase it?.

I didn't. Google's check on get.app also says it's taken. hostnet.nl, a dutch registrar where I have all my names, said it was available yesterday, haven't checked today.
