Another endorsement for IDNs

DCG posted in his monthly newsletter to forum members:

Quote:
Over the last 4-6 months IDN names have picked up quite a bit and feel they are of great value for you to invest in. When IE7 is released there will be a great deal of income off of these names that is very low now. Due to the fact that I believe strongly in the IDN market, we have setup many sections to help you buy and sell IDN names. It is not too late to find some gems out there. I have personally bought IDN's in over 120 languages.
Better get whatever you still want before the IDN market is overrun.

120 languages is really incredible.

There are still good names to be registered, but, in my guesstimation, it takes ten to twenty times the effort to find good unregistered IDNs, as compared with just two to three months ago.

I think the top terms with high Ovt are mostly gone. But single word generics with little to no Ovt (but still good) are still there. For those languages where Ovt is depressed many decent terms fall off the list. It just takes a confidence in the translation to pick up some of those.

WOW- 120 languages! Thats about the sum total of what is offered at domainsite. I think DCG must hold the dintinction of being the first person to have an idn in every language registerable! Does anyone know if there are even more languages possible to register within?

Yes, but there are still quite a few that aren't but will be.

Re: Another endorsement for IDNs

Presumably grabbing something like "hotel", "casino" or "poker" in every language might make vague sense, especially if you're in it for the long haul i.e. 10-20 year timeframe.

But it seems unlikely that all 120 languages will attract productive amounts of traffic any time soon.
