Re: .tv IDN registrations over?

Domainsite seems to be working ok for .tv registrations.

Sometimes there is a bleep in the system, and the registrar can't connect to the .tv registry. I have had that happen to me a couple of times in the past.

Re: .tv IDN registrations over?

I thought I'm finnished with .tv domains. But every day, I'm getting new ideas.

DD24 is failing entirely. The whole site is down right after you try to login.

Re: .tv IDN registrations over?

i think idotz.net is cheaper than domainsite for .tv domains, for those who are interested on .tv

Re: .tv IDN registrations over?

Agree with IDNCEO about Idotz.net

They are the cheapest for regging .tvs

Re: .tv IDN registrations over?

But they make you pay for dns servers and register lock. Annoying non-pro interface too. But domainsite isn't working for .tv's at the moment at all. So I had to do it. I got another .tv!

Re: .tv IDN registrations over?

to forward url on idotz.net is for what they charge but for changes on dns no charge.

yeah interface sucks but the same with domainsite. i dont know why they dont get a better webdesign like doster, dynadot, etc. when i see webdesign like those, i got the feeling they are going to shut down business very soon; not even to invest money for what they are, a web company, looks not trustworthy.

I like domainsite. Their pages are simple and load fast. They also have the most powerful dns management and the fastest dns updating I have ever seen in a registrar. I hope they don't change it in fact! I don't like slow loading full of ads and garbage websites. They have their use for newbies, but I'd prefer a clean bulk registration and management interface when I have hundreds of domains to manage! A lot of pages slow down simply because I have 10 different languages and complex Indic scripts loading up on one page.

Yes, but when you can get .TV countrynames and languagenames that are going to draw in traffic no matter what, why bother with second rate .jps, between you and a few others on here, you have all the good ones. I'm pretty much done with .jp myself.

I actually got my family excited about .tv and we are going to develop a couple of the Russian .tv domains. I'm not talking about a landing page either. All out video. When ccTLDs get dnamed, .tv is going to be .ТВ, which means TV in Russian. If not, TV in latin letters is popular too.

I don't own 中华 China.com. But I do have 中华.tv. Same thing with 美人, 美, and 女.tv. This was a chance to get top names at a bargain in the premium .tv domain with lots of media snob appeal and instant name recognition around the world in all languages.

ニュース.tv news.tv in English is 1000000$ a year reg.

Re: .tv IDN registrations over?

Does your .tv registrations display wierdly on the Domainsite interface?
Like this: (An example)
xn--xxxxx.tv (キーワード) Notice the .tv is missing from the name in brackets.

Although on whois it displays:
xn--xxxxx.tv (キーワード.tv)

Yes, all my .tv domains display with garbled characters in different languages. I've called domainsite on the phone a few weeks ago and mentioned it to them. They say, just go with the punycode, that's the real domain. OK.
