Possibly Interesting IDN Stats

I associated languages with the Unicode scripts that are used to create them and ran an analysis of all COM/NET IDN names in the 3/2/2006 root zone file. The first list is the count of names for each group of languages and the second list is the count of names for each Unicode script. I determined the language and script by averaging out the Unicode code points used in the domain. Hopefully someone other than myself might find the info interesting.

Re: Possibly Interesting IDN Stats

Intriguingly low stats on some languages and locales. Food for thought! Thanks for compiling this and sharing it with us.

Re: Possibly Interesting IDN Stats

Thank you so much for doing this! Graphs would make it easier to grasp. Anyone up for Excel?

Re: Possibly Interesting IDN Stats

Yes, thanks for compiling this. The disparity in numbers between Korean and Japanese indicate that something is maybe amiss, but hopefully over time this could be interesting IDN data.

Re: Possibly Interesting IDN Stats

OK, could someone give me a "so what" for these numbers? I apologize but for some of us the lightbulb doesn't automatically go on when we look at them. Does this mean the number of registered domains of each language? Is that the stat we are looking at?

Re: Possibly Interesting IDN Stats

For the adventurous among us, this is a big lightbulb to go buy domains that're currently underbought.

For the trend watcher among us, this is the starting baseline of IDN's popularity index.

For the ones interested in learning and registering Korean name, it probably means, stop :p

that said, I have no idea what I'm looking at either. Some of the stats seems VERY low, especially
cyrillic, which i thought includes Russian

Re: Possibly Interesting IDN Stats

I think the disparity is cause by the sheer volume of crap korean names out there. They are by FAR the bulk of the drops and most of them, thankfully, stay dropped.
