This term ranks high on Yahoo
Seriously, that's a neologism the turks will unlikely take and effort to accept...
One who wants to experiment with branding with accents needs to take into consideration that
1) it's possible
2) you need to be a native speaker to do it as accents are not just those tiny little caps on top. They usually totally change the pronunciation as well.

Re: adült.com

It's not an accent, it's an umlaut.

And sometimes they're just used for fun.
Think of band nakmes like Motörhead or Mötley Crüe.

Novelty at best.

These names would be worthless if not for the bands. No one in their right mind would have registered MötleyCrüe dot com before the band existed.

And nobody in their right mind (except their management) would have registered that domain afterwards. :D

Now let's get serious. I think it's only a matter of time until that term is established. (May it be ten years). Then I'll sell it for XXXXX.

Re: adült.com

That's the problem with many people who don't master the language/culture of the target market. They tend to extrapolate the
success that ASCII "equivalents" had on US market to other countries and register these novelty idns and literal translations like CreditCheck in Russian. Sounds very funny too.

Avtually I know how it is pronounced. Same as in german. The turks adopted that character from us when they changed to latin script.

Re: adült.com

Btw. It seems to become more widespread lately to replace 'adult' with 'adült' in adult websites to bypass content filters.

Re: adült.com

Actually, that's a software workaround for a german keyboard, designed by a small company.

A real turkish keyboard (there are two variants, ID 179 and ID 440) looks a lot different, as I found out now.

May be you want to register P中RN then...
Don't waste your time, man. Who cares what workaround to avoid detection a couple of maniacs would use? It will never become mainstreem, that's the point.

The only relevant question is: does it get traffic?

lıvesex.com gets between 100-200 visits per day, earns between .50 - 1.50 USD per day. Not bad for an IDN typo.

Typos... some are moneymakers, some aren't.
