日本.TV and 中国.TV

Time to bring these out for appraisal - only 3-4 mths ago, a lot of people would say these are not worth registering.

The character for japan and china is the same for both languages.

Re: 日本.TV and 中国.TV

I think you began the next wave of IDN registrations with these two in January. I think there are probably only a handful of terms worth regging in .tv and the country names are on top of the list. I would say news, sports, and sex are probably the others.

I like these, they would be great for subdomains - news.中国.TV, sports.中国.TV, etc. In the .tv landscape these would be 10s (using our new scale). In the entire IDN landscape I'd probably give them a 5 or 6, with the comment that they could easily be 10s with development.

And on a personal note, these two domains you announced in January got me to reg 東京.tv. I thank you for that.

Super generic .TV would really be worth a lot when internet tv takes off - i believe that will first happen within the next 3-4 years (maybe in a broadband country like Korea), and mass adoption (when the factories in China start producing $500 32" inch internet lcd tvs) within 5-8 years. Full market penetration in developed and industrializing countries will happen within 10-12 years.

I think these will be great names in a few more years.

The third main cause of Heart Attack is the over excitement when searching the availability of domain names! (No, just kidding :-)).

If 中国.com is still available by now, my porfolio of IDN would worth nothing.
