Good or bad for Hebrew domains

The publicity in Israel is quickly growing with news stories where like most cases the writer heard the word domain a couple days ago for the first time.

They are confusing the public with real domains and the plug in 'names' but luckily in every one of those several comments explain the differences.

The life cycle for the plug in domains is limited as verisign won't allow them to continue this when they alias they're domains but that does not stop them from selling them for more then $100 for 2yrs and they plan to auction several hundred generics.

What do you think, good or bad overall?

BTW, 2 Articles were also published in the print edition of the 2nd biggest daily newspaper in Israel, on back cover, weekend edition and it did explain the differences, almost successfully too.

But plug-in domain name games have never lasted.

Re: Good or bad for Hebrew domains

This publicity is definitely a good. Anecdotally, I've seen quite of few natives registering the .net of .com that I own. Many just this past month. Similar for Russian. People are getting the word.
