idnscan.com wow what a resource

www.idnscan.com

I have not seen this mentioned on this forum or dnlocal .

Someone did a great script to dump the entire "xn--0......." to "xn--z......" whois database in to detailed indexed webpages.



Not being a native speaker of some of the languages........
what a great way to get ideas ...

I put


手机瞬间使者.com that I registered...( a small bet on future tech in China)

(xn--2rq017bjsdfvul0js86a.com) Mobile Instant Messenger

in a Google search and got 1 result......the idnscan.com page ???!!!!


At least this is a resource to see quickly who your 'xn--" neighbors are or more importantly.........aren't.

Also......google is indexing this site now.......hmmmmmm.........

so thank you idnscan.com whoever you are.....(grin)

please think about html for the next revision of the database........
then more IDN results will show up naturally in Google as links rather than text only.

Steve

Re: idnscan.com wow what a resource

thanks for the compliment... I think ...(grin)

Really, I am not affiliated or owner of the site.....

I have been a Software project manager many times in my career....
so I can recognize good script writing when I see it......
I just can't write it myself.......

My days at programming were the old COBOL / Pascal/ and early Visual Basic stuff....
Today...the whiz kids write in Java , Python, and PHP........

and thanks for the 'not' compliment......hopefully the 'idnscan' guru will show up here
and take the html recommedation anyways......

Re: idnscan.com wow what a resource

idnscan.com was reg'd mid 2007.
Who.is shows owners address in: Phoenixville, Pennsylvania USA (no name given)
That city is not familiar to me in any IDN who.is lookups.

Also: idnscan.net was reg'd back in 2002 so the .com must have dropped along the way.

Cool competition on this forum ? not in my view

to IDNcowboy's comment:

re: helping the competition.

I don't view the IDNforums list as competition .

I am buying IDN's not selling. And I am buying for the long term and for eventual
development with eventual publishing partners and not for penny fraction PPC and parking.

I view you, RD, Olney and a dozen others as IDN teachers/ educators.

I posted the idnscan.com site because I was startled to find it, and thought that
I should share it with the community here.
To find it as a one result page on Google was even more startling.

yes, I guess we compete for auctioned names etc....but that is marketplace and
valuation or portfolio competition.....

sharing a new resource .....I guess our viewpoints differ.


thanks...

Steve

Re: idnscan.com wow what a resource

I always wondered about IDNscan. Not sure if it is good or bad. Not sure why it exists.

Re: idnscan.com wow what a resource

I thought the purpose was to make money from adsense! :o

by the way, now that i took a closer look, this site could have us come up statistics like the number of idn.com or idn.net!

http://www.google.com/search?q=site:...&start=30&sa=N

Returns:

Results 31 - 40 of about 917 from idnscan.com. (0.11 seconds)

There are about 1000 idns on every result page.

Re: idnscan.com wow what a resource

I was thinking the same thing, Josh. Would've been useful to put up random information like that.

I saw this site a while ago. Was interesting to see what was registered. First time I saw it I freaked cause a lot of my domains were on there, then I finally realized what it was, lol.

Apologies Steve. Your post sounded so enthusiastic .... I thought it could only come from the site owner :p

I just tried the site out, and to be honest, it is absolute junk. There is no explanation. I type in my thai domains, and nothing happens, just get taken to a google error page.

And what is the a - z about, lol, IDNs are mainly about languages other than those than have these letters in, lol.

My programming guy could knock up a site that did a fully searchable IDN directory in a couple of days. A good site this ain't.

Re: idnscan.com wow what a resource

Have come across this site before on my travels, can't say that the site has any use at all apart from being a large list of all idn's registered (which is what use? - apart from affirming that IDNs are well and truely active and already in use)

If it was a directory with actual links, and some SEO benefit for contained sites, maybe it would have more use. As it is, it just looks like a site with no design, put together for adsense clicks.

Some better IDN resources are idnwhois.org and idntools.net,

How is it a list of all IDNs registered?

Re: idnscan.com wow what a resource

I'm with DG
I'm sorry but I don't see a site aphabeticalized by punycode as being useful.

Maybe if you are looking for registered indexed domains with certain keywords maybe that's ok...

Re: idnscan.com wow what a resource

It's obviously a google spamming script that's not suited to IDN's.

The list of common misspellings down the bottom confirms this.

Useful? Hardly.
