Future of IDNs

Why do you think IDN's are taking off more slowly than many had anticipated? Any thoughts on what a realistic time frame might look like and what still needs to happen for them pick up steam (i.e. any specific obstacles, problems, etc.)?

And, what about the IDN.IDN issue? I've read a bit about it here & there but I still don't have a feel for what's ultimately happening and what the consequences will be for .com/.net. (To be honest, sometimes the terms used are too technical for me. I'm very smart - genius IQ - but I'm not a techie at this point in my life.) Does it depend on each individual country? If so, in what way?

Will anyone want my Hebrew .coms - even premium ones -if they can type .com like this קום.in their own language and without doing shift+alt to go back and forth between Hebrew and English? Would it help if I make appointments to speak with major web/internet/hosting companies this summer when I'm in Israel in order to spread the word?

(Israel's a tiny country ...wouldn't take long.) Esp. before/if IDN.IDN comes out there? I'm just trying to think if there's anything an individual can do to make things happen.

I'm in for the long haul. I just want to understand better where things stand and why, and what to expect over the next months/year.

Thanks in advance for your thoughts on this subject.
Laurie

Re: Future of IDNs

I believe for many markets it will be 2 to 3 years before IDNs go mainstream.
I say budget your buys to think like that. If it happens faster all the better.

Re: Future of IDNs

IDN is progressing very smoothly. The main work for IDN is already DONE, people can start using IDN as they use Ascii domains --- setting up websites and email servers....

Now, the researchers are working on 2 Add-on interface features to make more people happy.

1. Email: IDN@IDN.Ascii (we can only do Ascii@IDN.Ascii at this time)
This is a purely technical work, so we can expect it to be done very soon.

2. IDN.IDN: Some people want the extention of IDN domains also in their native script. This will take a bit longer to achieve because it always take time to have so many countries agreed on same solution.

So, while we are discussing the solution for IDN.IDN, the world is actually adopting IDN.Ascii very smoothly right now. The only thing that makes the adoption pace slow is the slow distribution of IDN-enabled browsers.

Re: Future of IDNs

No matter what answer we give, I believe all of us agree that progress is happening at a good rate.

Is this a new sale or the one previously mentioned here a few weeks ago. If it is a new one then it would seem that things should start taking off across the board/all languages wouldn't it

Re: Future of IDNs

Well, just before I get accused of leading lemmings over a cliff again. I have heard absolutely nothing about a massive sale Hebrew or otherwise.

Personally, I would not anticipate such a massive jump on a single domain, but the possibility of a large portfolio acquisition must always be out there.

Doesn't always have to be large duck , quality and a monopoly on a niche can also be the key.

The large really referred more to the financial consideration, but I think you need be realistic about unit prices for domains in the short-term. They will need a certain amount of benchmarking up into new territory.

Portfolio acquisition is likely to be attractive to major investors because they can get a lot of money invested that way without driving he market against themselves. Of course the first mover is going to have the greatest advantages. Once the first really massive deal is publicised things are going to get a whole lot tougher.

When will it happen? How the hell shoud I know, but sitting on ones hands is a sure way of missing the boat in the secondary market, just as it was in the primary market.

Well, regardless of what you anticipate, facts are facts and the jump was massive. PM me for details.

I might beg to differ, for IDN at this moment, i think contacts with buyers with lots of money is more important than quality.

Also, publicity is more important than actual quality.

Well, I for one would love to know more, especially if there are some hard fact to back it up.
