What may have been- One idea

So let's say the internet domain names started out as xxx.1, xxx.2 and so on. xxx.1 could be the now xxx.com, xxx.2 the now xxx.net, etc. IDNs could have popped in anytime with ддд.1 (Russian) for example. The extension could have been the same all over the world. All keyboards would be required to have the numerals 0-9. Countries/languages that already used the 0-9 numeral set would have an advantage but others would learn quickly. That would eliminate the .es, .jp, .cn and so on. I know it's too late but could this have worked? Am I talking nonsense? Comments, please.

Re: What may have been- One idea

keep in mind each extension was suppose to convey/show what type of organization was using the website, I believe initially the thought was .net would be preferred and carried a higher regged fee, developers and companies swarmed to .com, for one it was cheaper, they built websites on .com, branded .com. Users looking for content found it on .com, browsers defaulted to .com, hence .com rules today, .com is recognized worldwide.

anything is possible but what would .1 convey as meaning to the user, I realize the extension may not convey much meaning today to some since anyone can register a .com/.org/.net , but I think to some users it conveys quite alot, even trust in some cases, such as .co.uk or .co.jp. In those cases .uk, cn. .jp users also know they are getting content and apps developed for them. I think IDN.IDN will convey meaning to endusers in their language, but I believe (IMO) .com already conveys meaning. If .biz, .info, ect are ever mapped to IDN.IDN then they may convey meaning as well.

Just my opinion, but what we have today is due to folks developing and branding their websites, whether .com, .jp, .cn, .ru ect. JMO

What I meant was each language could have a .1, .2, etc. Whether it is Russian, Japanese, Chinese...

Actually my thought was mountain.com would have been mountain.1 in ASCII, mountain.net would have been mountain.2, etc.. núi.com (mountain in Vietnamese) would have been núi.1, núi.net would have been núi.2 and so on.

Re: What may have been- One idea

Looks a bit spammy, but if it was always like that I mightve liked it more.

What would country codes be like?

Domain.es.1
or domain.34.1
or domain.34

I guess I'm thinking languages, not countries. They'd all have .1 thru .3 (let's say .com=.1, .net=.2, .org=.3, etc.) and could add more extension dots as needed such as we've done with .ws, .tv, etc.
