No.

It doesn't mean news, it means "newspaper".

However, you'd never write it that way (yours is the phonetic spelling) as it's written 新聞 in day to day life.

Thanks Edwin!


Is [ にほんご.net ] the same "phonetic spelling" and worthless too?
Quote:
canonical name にほんご.net. (xn--38j2b6b6e.net.)
Domain Name: XN--38J2B6B6E.NET
Status: ok
Updated Date: 22-mar-2007
Creation Date: 09-nov-2000
Expiration Date: 09-mar-2008
I've checked and found that this [ にほんご.net ] was registered at very early stage, and I thought this kind of 'writing' (phonetic spelling) was a good form; probably I was wrong...

Re: [ しんぶん.net ] - News dot net

It is difficult to describe exactly what you regged. It's kind of like you registered "phatt" instead of "fat". Is that worthless? Well for type-in and SEO probably yes. Is it brandable? Well, yes. Is it already being used as somebody's trademark? Might very well be but requires research. These in my opinion are long shots but you never know.

I have all the Prefectures in Kana. Yes, in a way they are long shots, but they should be highly brandable. There may also be some typo traffic, because as I understand it the Kanji is most often generated from the Hirigana. I think at this stage of the game , however, for this to be a good bet, you need to be shadowing something pretty Iconic. Do not regard it as an entire untapped registry. It is not.

Re: [ しんぶん.net ] - News dot net

IMO
First,the computer system are all using the UNICODE.
So the Chinese character Not only is use in Chinese.
it will use in Chinese(both Traditional and Simplified ) Japaneses,
And Korea(but officially they don`t use any Chinese character any more ).
So If Some word like popular as "NEWS" 新聞.com 新聞.net
I think it is hard to get it easy.
30 country in Asian people want to get it.
Because it has meaning to then.
Butしんぶん.net has it price.
Sure,the market is only in japan.
And have more consider with their language habit and input method.
If you have type-in considering.
but still good name.
Why? because IDN has a meaning to then,you can easy transfer into it to a brand.
