What does this mean when searching for a name on Dynadot?

Been searching Dynadot & came accross this message for 1 of the extentions: "Got variant error on......"

What does that mean? Is that name still available for reg or is it possibly taken but there is a database error?

Maybe that extention doesn't support that particular language?

I actually got that for a Korean website .com once. It won't let you register that domain for some reason.

Simplified Chinese in the .tv extention & Japanese in the .cc extention are the 2 I got that message from.

Re: What does this mean when searching for a name on Dynadot?

Hi htmlindex,

variant error you are getting is because someone registered either the Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese version of the word. Japanese may share one of those words as well like, investment, This one always gets me, 投資 investment in Japanese, check the whois and you get "no match" check the simplified version 投资 and you will see the name of the lucky registrant. Since one version is registered the other is blocked,
check out http://www.xuezhongwen.net/chindict/chindict.php for a good dictionary that has both simplified and traditional chinese.

Also, sometimes dynadot will show "taken" like the case above when it is block other times it will show, "got variant error on this date". either way its blocked.

read old threads about variants errors

and welcome to the forum.

Dynadot now has a db of variants and you will only get variant error one time.
