First IDN appeared in Aug 15, 2000.

First IDN:

http://web.archive.org/web/200008152...ww.kakaku.com/

Can anyone find an earlier IDN?

Re: First IDN appeared in Aug 15, 2000.

Until the first day of the testbed there were no IDN's. There were those that figured out the RACE encoding and registered their own bq-- domains prior to the opening of the testbed (ゴルフ.com comes to mind) but these were not part of the testbed but rather outside of it. As a result they were not included when the RACE encoded domains of the testbed were converted to PUNYCODE. At this time domains outside of the testbed became null and void.

On the day that the testbed was opened the preregistrations that were done by different registrars all over the world were submitted and each domain was awarded on a first come first served basis. This date was November 10/2000 in most of the world but in some jurisdictions it was November 09/2000. Therefore November 9/2000 is the earliest date you will ever find for any true IDN.

It doesn't matter, they branded their website as an IDN.com, this is more important than actually owning the IDN itself.

Have you seen any company branding itself as .mobi back then in 2000?

This is Old enough.
I don`t even have a domain before this.:o
But I have read a book before.
This book has write about the IDNs history.
It seems older then this.
So if you have interesting to do some archeology.
Try to find this book and read it.

Re: First IDN appeared in Aug 15, 2000.

More important, what's the earliest Japanese IDN registered by an end user with a website that is using that IDN?

So many here still got 2nd doubts about the feasibility of IDN.com, i am trying to show that this is what the market wants, at least what the market in Japan wants.

Before we got IDN.com, people already wanna use IDN.com. What better proof can we got?

Dot mobi, dot info, and even .org, all these, ASCII or IDN do not have the sort of end user verification that we got for IDN.com.

So, [09-nov-2000] it's really as "early stage" I believe

Just curious -

What price it will be, if a 7 years old IDN sells on marketplace today?
