.com in native language

Will there be any value in registering .com in native language.?

I recently registered कॉम.com कॉम = com in hindi .

There are hundreds of sites which have .कॉम in their heading.


Pardon my ignore here on native language keyboard.
Is native language keyboard Multi lingual in general?
How do people type .com when they use the native language keyboard.

The Com will soon be represented in every script in the world as IDN.IDN are implememted. Verisign made an indication of how this woud be done in some languages from memory Japanese, Korean, Chinese, Arabic and Swedish. I suspect these have already gone.

In Arabic the com and net will be represented by single characters rather than transliterations. We actually have these.

Yes, I think there is value, but you need to register the Verisign representations in my opinion rather than your own transliterations, which may never have any meaning in local script. Of course eventually, all three letter acroynms will have some value, but not until all single and two letter combos have been mopped up.

Best Regards

Re: .com in native language

I posted this in another post, but it is more relevant here methinks.

If the world will be adopting IDN.IDN, is there any point anymore in registering IDN.com or e.g. IDN.cn or IDN.jp?

Won't these be redundant in a few years?

Forgive my confusion.

thanks

I register at www.domainsite.com

China has already implemented IDN.IDN. These are dot CN and they resolve as a result of some DNS tinkering, but only within the PRC itself.

ICANN is the process of agreeing the mechanism for the implementation of IDN.IDN

These will not be new registries, but will resolve by Aliasing of the first level. They will still be dot com etc, but they will appear or be able to be typed in using Local Unicode Characters.

Your investment should be enhanced not diminished.

Best Regards

Re: .com in native language

So it is still worth regging any Chinese language IDN.com domains I can find?

thanks

Register all you can find. Word is out. Most likely they will not be there soon.

Re: .com in native language

Yes, keep going, but don't go too far ahead of the curve. Eventually, every meaningful three word combo will go just like with conventional domains, but I don't think they would be good investments at this time. Follow the market, but third tier domains should be left until there is significant type-in. Second tier is what is about to happen in China and Japan now. These are probably for buying, developing and selling rather than just sitting on them.

Happy New Year!

Olney has a little shameless behaviour in the past
Re: .com in native language

It's because of IDNers forum (Chinese site) someone posted a link there.

I'd like to return the kindness (All in Chinese or perhaps Taiwanese though)

Re: .com in native language

I think we ought to start charging for the beer. No more freebies from the frat.

[looks for the empty beer icon]

If that is what Verisign actually use as an Alias for dot com then it will be worth a lot of money. However, in Arabic they are just going for a single letter that is phonetically "S".
It is not, however, clear that simply transliterating will get you where you want to go.

Having said that there is a good chance you will get lucky.

Best of Luck
