Re: How Stupid was this?

My ¿cuanto.com pays for itself.
ND last month: US$ 2.35 229 12 % 5.24 US$ 0.20 US$ 10.26

And the IDN version is free: ¿cuánto.com

All Spanish keyboards have this key.

¿donde estas mi coche, whey?

Shift-Alt-? on the Mac US-EN keyboard

I wonder what exactly they're typing into the URL bar to end up at your domain Jose?

Re: How Stupid was this?

¿ is on the spanish keyboard.

It is not recognized by the search browsers so the domains will be listed if possible under just the number alone.

Stupid. Not sure yet.

format for asking a question in spanish is ¿question? unfortunatly it is not possible to put a question mark at the end of a domain name.

I suppose I just need a place to park them now and see how they do. I also reged ¿juegos.com a week or so ago. has not gone live. Spanish for GAMES
In reality it would be ?GAMES or about games.

Its all a gamble

Any suggestions on the best parking site for Sapnish?

Re: How Stupid was this?

Jose, it's a derogatory term - depending on how and who you say it to.
But you can call a friend "whey" with no problems.

Well, there isn't much of a choice, is there? Besides Namedrive and Sedo.
So, if you see a lot of traffic, alternate between the both of them to get your answer.

Thank you. Much appreciated.

I used to own some of these questionable domains, but I dropped all of them because the traffic was too low, and there is a possibility that the inverse question mark will be removed from future versions of punycode. It is already removed in the beta version.
