What IDNs do you think are the most valuable?

I was discussing this with one of the members here the other day.

We enjoyed sharing each other's opinion, but we couldn't reach an agreement.

So, I thought, I might as well ask more people what they think.

The question is,

1) Which IDN do you think is the best of all?
2) Which adult IDN do you think is the most valuable?

Please answer regarding IDNs of languages you are familiar with.

Thank you.

Re: What IDNs do you think are the most valuable?

I'd say 1) Business and 2) Sex. That's all there is to life, right?

My personal favorite is bergamasco. That is only because of the natural type in traffic. If you are looking to develop there are better languages.

Re: What IDNs do you think are the most valuable?

Actually, I would say:

1) Business 2) Gambling 3) Sex

1) $345 Million 2) $20 Million 3) $12-14 Million (cash and stock)


The only problem with this is that you have to take into consideration the country (or script) of the domain.

Mainland China for example number 2 and 3 would be almost worthless due to the censorship of the current government so the most valuable there would be different.

Variations will exist for many scripts due to different reasons. The location of the target market always has to be taken into consideration. The ascii precendent will always play a factor however.

casinò (I consider it an adult domain)

Probably the best domains are geodomains (you can imagine a turistic website!!!) and those related to sex, gambling and money

Unless you own them, none of them hold any value for you.

The most famous, popular and typable symbol's IDN will be the most valuable one I think.
