Ok make me rich

Well I have been trying to be a millionaire since the day I was living under a bridge.
Well hasnt happened yet.

So cant hurt to ask.
I need an idn name that is in the dot com or native language of the tld that has not been regged yet that will someday be able to be sold for the million dollars.
Not asking for a free on, just one that can be regged.... and is more than worthwhile.

Cant hurt to ask

What they do at Namepros goes way beyond domain speculation. They seem to be involved in some kind of hobbiest's distraction like train spotting or stamp collecting. It is obviously very popular but I think I will stick to the commercial side of things myself.

Hmmm. Loophole:

http://www.cooperativeindividualism....ntific-law.gif

You didn't supply a very definative timeframe. Someday is well,... obscure.

If you were to look at what has occurred in the ASCII namespace and extrapolate that onto the script of your choice you might see, (given enough time) That there are still rather large chunks of gold waiting to be picked up. At the present time, all that is still available would be best described as "brandable" domains but if any given namespace becomes bought up they can still be quite valuable. Just look at the current value of 2 and 3 letter .coms for example.

Sure it may take more than 1 domain to reach your goal of 1 milliion, but if you do your research 20-30 carefully selected domains held long enough for the selected namespace to be bought out should do the trick.

I sometimes laugh to myself when I see people point out that a particular domain is a common misspelling or other error and is subsequently worthless. Given enough time many of these may hold very significant value.

I agree. Common misspellings, according to my understanding, can be quite valuable in Arabic as well as Russian. I am not aware of any other languages where this would hold true, but there could be more.

Nonetheless, I believe that the seller has a duty to point out if a listed domain is a common misspelling. A common problem, though, is that the seller has little to no competence in the language for the the domain which he is listing for sale. In this case, I feel that it's more than appropriate for native speakers to jump in and clarify the situation for the sake of others. This is part of the support-group function that we receive for being part of a well rounded and diversified group of members.

And then there are the cases where the proper spelling has fallen out of common use, but native speakers try to flip them anyway and fail to mention this little tidbit of information. Again, the group has a duty to clarify IMO.

Politics and slagging matches in the extreme seems to be some of the diversifications here.

And going off topic in threads! -hmmm!

Don't forget the imminent implosion of the US economy!

I think the economy is a lot like the weather. People have studied it for ages and are able to some very short term predictions as well as identify cycles, but you really never know just what mother nature has in store for you. We didn't even get a winter in Finland this year. WTF, 1/3 of the country is north of the arctic circle and the other 2/3 isn't far behind!

Well I guess some of us are treading water waiting for more serious domainers to turn up. Unlike the ASCII World, the trades that are in the open seem to be financed out of the weekly pocket money. Doesn't leave much scope for serious discussion on the dynamics of the IDN domain business. Of course, there is a fair bit going on in the background which was very much the pattern with ASCII as well, but NDAs often prevent meaningful discussions.

No- not me, no treading of water, plenty of serious domainers around here,ascii and idn aficionados, most of whom do not need to have the last post. Now there's an opening, I wonder who------

You can say that when a day or so after Petra.com sold here for $500? That's not a market, that is a car boot sale!
