Appraise: 比赛.biz, 性.biz

Picked these two up on the pre-reg, but didn't verify the terms very heavily. Are either one of them worth keeping, or should I claim an account credit?

比赛.biz

性.biz

Both chinese.


比赛 - might be games, but not sure

性 - could be one term for sex, but not sure


Well, at least the second one has some trends:

Those are actually the only two I won, probably because they aren't any good or something

Re: Appraise: 比赛.biz, 性.biz

It might be different in Chinese but looking at it
It might be sex as in "gender"
Japanese words with that character tend to mean gender..
But it might be totally different.

Thanks, Olney. I think it also probably means "gender" in chinese.

Re: Appraise: 比赛.biz, 性.biz

Let's try to keep this at discussion level.
I'm sure there are still plenty of domains left & since Rhys was hand regging, there's time...

Re: Appraise: 比赛.biz, 性.biz

Bottom line is that if they are still available, then there is going to be no immediate demand in the secondary market.

The idea that you can reg one day without competition and sell at a substantial profit the next is pretty much flawed. It normally takes a considerable delay for peoples' perceptions of value to change. Ok, if you manage to corner a mug, you might convince him that base metal is gold and take him for his little stash, but there is going to be no significant market in IDN.biz in Chinese and Japanese until IDN.com, IDN.jp and IDN.cn start to get really hot.

I agree completely. There might be a little PPC value in some of them, however.
