ultimate IDN reference?

I'm finally taking the plunge and doing a press release (English and Thai) about our games site. Going to focus on the search engine angle and how having an exact domin name match has gotten us a top-10 placement for the most searched Thai term.

Anyhow, for the English release, I want to mention a site where people can go to get the low-down on IDNs. Some page or site that explains very very clearly what IDNs are, and doesn't have a commercial side e.g. I don't want something that has IDNs for sale, just good concise info.

So please suggest some URLs. No problem if they are your own

why is thaidomains.com private? ;-)

I think you would provide a great resource for Thai.

yep, definitely an option if nothing else turns up. I just thought one of our members would have a "killer IDN reference page" I could give free publicity to...

Re: ultimate IDN reference?

I would work on the server before doing that. We talked about load times before and decided that maybe the local had something to do with it but I doubt that is the issue, I can access the server immediately but then it just sits and spins for a very long time considering how light the page actually is.

Good suggestion, but there isn't a lot we can do short term. International bandwidth is strangled to sites inside Thailand. Yes you can access the server because that isn't a bandwidth issue, just DNS. But when you try and load the page .... bad things happen. The only real solution is to have some kind of mirror site outside Thailand, but the visitor level from outside Thailand or potential income level from those visitors would in no way justify that.

But yeah, if the site really is consistently unreliable outside Thailand, might be a waste of time doing English-language press release.

btw, just talked to the host admin about this and he will do some tuning. Sounds like we might need more RAM etc.
