ブログ.tv and インターネット.tv ( Japanese IDNs )

Hi guys and gals,

After much debating with whether of not I should reg these two Japanese .tv IDNs, and went and took the plunge.

ブログ.tv ( Blog )
Overture Japan Results - 925,701
Overture US Results - 774
Google.co.jp Results - 28,600,000
Yahoo.co.jp Results - 338,000,000


インターネット.tv ( Internet )
Overture Japan Results - 297,588
Overture US Results - 111
Google.co.jp Results - 36,100,000
Yahoo.co.jp Results - 190,000,000


Now I know that some will probably say the .tv domain will not be any good for these domains, but seeing as the .com, .net and .jp were all taken, was it worth regging these ones ?? I mean, if blog.tv or internet.tv were available in English for Reg Fee, would anyone reg these ?? I think they would.

I did a little searching as well regarding the .tv extension for Japan, and was very suprised at the number of sites who have a .tv domain name. If you do a search on yahoo.co.jp for the term ".tv", you will see there are many many sites from Japan using the .tv extension, which gives me the impression that it might be an excepted domain extension to the Japanese.

Anyway, I would really appreciate any opinions and thoughts on these two.

Thanks for your time.

Alex

Re: ブログ.tv and インターネット.tv ( Japanese IDNs )

Where/how did you manage to register those .tv?!

Can I register a .tv Internationalized Domain Name (IDN)?
At this time, the .tv Corporation is supporting existing .tv IDNs but is not accepting any new registrations.

Jose

I regged them at Idotz.net

I believe they have the cheapest prices for .tv domains.

Re: ブログ.tv and インターネット.tv ( Japanese IDNs )

I have a few japanese IDN .tv and that's all I'm going to have. Too much opportunity elsewhere. I chose ones that made sense with the extension and that I wouldn't mind developing someday. If IDN.IDN ever happened it would be awesome if .tv became .テレビ.

but thats the problem with this extension with japanese idn, that .tv is ccTLD, i mean Tuvalu. then some .tv domains are official tuvalu governmental websites while many use .tv as "television". In case of a idn.idn i guess .tv wont become .テレビ because that would be to deny the extension to Tuvalu that Icann assigned them as ccTLD. .tv is not gTLD or sTLD but ccTld.

Exactly the danger. It would be a shame for the extension to be mapped to .ツバル instead of .テレビ but I can't imagine the nation of 11,000 residents to be able to lobby them otherwise.

Tivalu does not care... They did it to cash out.. It has helped build their infrastructure. Besides the nation is sinking in the years to come.

Jeff is right. Tuvalu's .tv is one of the nations best assets and is deliberately marketed so. I doubt they would fight テレビ.
