Good sales of IDNs on DNjournal

This weeks DNjournal had 4 reported IDN sales.


"A pair of Arabic IDN domains sold at IDNForums.com where معلومات.com ("information" in Arabic) brought £2,000 ($3,538) and المعلومات.com ("the information" in Arabic) added £1,500 ($2,654)."

"Germany's .de racked up four. Two of those .de's were IDNs."


"IDN's continue to pop on this chart with regularity. #10 Nähen.de ("sewing" in German) at $2,422 and #13 Bahnhöfe.de ("train stations" in German) at $1,757, did the honors this time out."

This good news for all the fellow idners.

I am sure we will see a lot more next week.

Till then see ya and good nite, its 3:42 am in Louisiana.

I heard a rumour that the buyer was very handsome and even more modest.

Not just Arabic I suspect. It will probably rekindle a shift of focus away from the Far East. I would suspect that Russia will be back in the firing line, along with possibly Farsi and Hindi.

Re: Good sales of IDNs on DNjournal

Having studied this weeks reports and the year to date charts, I have noticed that for German IDN in particular Duke is having to pinch himself to remember to include the IDN comments. This suggests to me that he is subconsciously getting used to IDN, and no longer strongly feels the need to point out the difference.

I think in a couple of years the rest of the internet will follow suit and the terminology IDN will largely be dropped. For Japanese for example I would not expect words in Kanji or Hirigana to require anything more than the description Japanese, wheras transliteration I believe will probably be marked as Japanese Romanji. Similarly, with Chinese I think only Traditional or Pinyin will be referred to anything other than Chinese. Simplified Chinese will be the expectation and no further explanation than Chinese will be required or offered.

I agree, that's probably true.
