Lightbulb Free IDN Subdomains!

As you, and unlike English, on almost all other languages verbs and nouns change according to the sentences they are in. Thus they make the perfect combination for subdomaining.

IDN subdomains are very easy to setup. You just need to encode the foreign word on punnycode and create the subdomain just like you would do for a regular subdomain, using the punnycode value instead.

I, as many of you, have some domains ideal for that. On Russian, French, Hebrew and other languages.

I have decided to offer some for free. Here’s my first one: сайта.com

In case you like the idea, and also want to offer your IDN subdomain for local language SEO’s to develop I am thinking on creating an easily searchable directory of IDN subdomains on IDNSubdomains.com.

Opinions?

Re: Free IDN Subdomains!

Really good idea jose! The more dev'd sites IDNs get, the more global awareness will go up! Sad I don't speak enough Russian to dev one of your subdomain. I will probably end up trying this with one of my french IDNs or dev some of yours if you have good ones in french.

I seriously support this idea, including the subdomain directory.

Nick

Jose,
Do you already have a web interface to control a DNS server, or how do you plan to create these subdomains? By editing Bind configuration files?

I am working on writing a web interface to control my DNS servers, but I use djbdns instead of Bind.

No, I am more thinking of hand made, lol
It's just 10 or 15 subdomains and I will need to configure the FTP server as well and edit the top subdomain page with the details of the new subdomain.

I know there are scripts to do that and I have already asked my hosting company to open the wildcard (*).domain.com so that I could install them, but to be honest I have many other stuff that is prioritary right now.

This subdomain idea was an old one. I just put it to action yesterday after I saw Michael's post. It was Michael who trasnlated it to Russian a couple of months ago. Check the whois on IDNSubdomains and you will figure it out how old the idea is...

So many ideas, so little time...

Yes, I use wildcard on all my domains as well. It's pretty handy. I really don't see why anybody would configure a domain without wildcards.
