3. Parking, PPC Ad companys Meet our Needs

4. Vista Release ?

5. And the biggy IDN.IDN release announcement

6. IDN.IDN implemented ( DName )


YOu can leave percetnages , multiples , or however you depict a rise in our holdings

Don't forget native language ads and parking pages. We can't develop all of our names.

I do not know if it's possible to quantify that "jump". I think many of us here do not realize that the world is still not aware of IDNs - at this moment, we are still trading within our own small "marketplace", million(s) population cities and prefectures are still traded at a couple hundreds to one or two thousand dollars.

The day the world discovered "IDNs", millions of dollars will start pouring into the market - governments will start to enquire whether they own their city/country names, CEOs of billion dollar companies will start asking their PAs if they own their own product names. Overnight, we would be asking mid-five figures for names we previously sell among ourselves for one or two thousand dollars.

All of us here will start to find ourselves in the same position as the first 500 Google employees with their million dollars stock options.

I hope you guys see the picture.

Re: Portfolio's On the Rise ?

Another important milestone, will be the first publicised sale of an IDN to an end user?

Does anyone know if this has happened yet? or on the immediate horizon? or many months away?

Re: Portfolio's On the Rise ?

Few end-users even know about idns - try asking people not in the domain industry, out of 100 people, how many of them know that it is possible to have multi-language domains.

Even for people in the domain industry, many still can't fully understand idns - whether they are a farce, let alone end users.

I had been working in the Internet industry (not domains, but applications) since 1998, but i've never heard of idns - i thought i was quite well informed since i have been reading CNET and Computerworld (today i know that what appears on these sites are not news, but very old news!) - until i encountered one of Dave's posts on DNF.

I've talked to a few people in the last few weeks. Many are suprised that it was not possible to use their language for domain names before. In other words, people assumed that just like anything, they would be able to create domain names in their own language. I had to explain that this was a new thing and it wasn't possible before.

Re: Portfolio's On the Rise ?

I had been working in the Internet industry since 1993 (*) and have heard of IDN's since 1999. However AND because I have invested before on tendencies that I thought would be great but turned out to be real flops, I didn't enter it till I heard what I have been waiting to hear ever since that time: that ie will *finally* support IDN's! And that was only on the beginning of this year.

(*) I have a blog on archive.org since they started archiving the net, that is very fun to read. Many years before the "blog" word was coined, lol.

Re: Portfolio's On the Rise ?

For Japan it instantly skyrockets once a few make a couple of trendy IDN sites.
Doesn't matter if it's iMode or the web.
Japanese young folk will do whatever they have to do to get to new trendy things.

Does this assume that DNAME (IDN.IDN) is implemented?

Re: Portfolio's On the Rise ?

Nope no relation.
People screaming that IDN.IDN is a must are a bit extreme (at least for Japan).
It's good. It's real Good.
IE7 would be enough really, & the mobile phone browsers.

I 3rd that and having been thinking this for sometime now....


Now for a recap, Only 200+ views and only 2-3 people Gave a Analaysis

Synopsis : When a few trendy ones Hit it Big , we are in the Mainstreem ,
When everybody catches on 5 figuire names overnight

My input on IE7 is the first day it goes live our portfolios multiply by atleast 10 +

Re: Portfolio's On the Rise ?

Yes, i'm still considering the market reaction when IE7 is publicly launched and whether to withdraw my domains from the market first and wait till that day.

I think newspapers around the world will be reporting on the features of IDNs, and IDNs will be "born". Microsoft will take the opportunity to boost about their new IE features, including IDN support.

Even the combined publicity IDNs received from 2000 to 2006 will be nothing compared to the single public launch of IE7.
