Re: Keep or toss ?? One Characters

Thanks
These are just a few of my one characters. A couple new but been pondering if to keep or not since they are Armenian, Macedonia and a few off the walls.
Just researching and finding that Armenia is working with EU now for reform. 4/2009 That shoud give a decent boost to the area financially.
Might be a good thing to keep them.?

If the characters feature on any country keyboard then they are "keepers" in the .com. é.ws is worth a second look, but quite honestly, the .ws ext'n is the kiss of death for this name.

Most can be found on the regional keyboards for the area so in that respect it is a good thing
I know the .ws is one of the worst but this character was just too good to lose.

.ws will be buried among hundreds or thousands of new TLDs. No matter how good the keywords are, people can get them with some TLD. Why buy yours?

I will probably sell them as a group at some time
Considering é returns 412 million results I just couldnt let it go
I suppose if I owned e.ws I would keep that one as well.
Besides one .ws is not going to decrease the value of the other one characters in general.

Re: Keep or toss ?? One Characters

é.com is a beauty, and gets quite a bit of type in too... I have ó,,com and am thinking about turning it in to an Irish genealogy type site (ó means many things, in different languages, but in Ireland it means 'descendent of').

Single letter IDN's are going to have their day for sure so keep what you can, especially '.com'.

Re: Keep or toss ?? One Characters

I really dont monitor the traffic on these domain. I suppose I should. I know I have the Polish N and it was getting somewhere around 100 to 1000 hits per month at one time.

Parking is not really good for these if you ask me. It really dosent justify the domains. All of the parked pages really are bland and users are getting smarter and realize what a parked page is. ADS.

I would really like to see a parking service that has some good pages. Something fresh with constant updates and quality text in the native language They just dont exist.

Namedrive and I dont see eye to eye it seems. I got booted about 3 years ago because I was working in IT for a very large corp. Users from that network woud visit the pages to see what I was talking about and I suppose too many visits from under one group of webservers is not in their best interest. No great loss to me.

Sedo. Dont get me started. I really like their staff. Some great people to work with, but for idn support its almost nill. They tell me they are working for greater language support but until they see the big bucks roll in, I am sure they are going to stay away.

What we really need to do is start up our own idn parking service, with an auction format. I really dont have the time or financial resources to do this, but it could be of value to anyone that decided to take on this task.

Here and in the other forums we are just selling between each other. Granted there are a few outsiders that take advantage of the forum auctions, but that is rare.

We really need to infiltrate the ascii market and reach the non idn forums. We need to post the big sales there to gain momentum and support.
Hell I wouldnt mind selling őőőőőőőő.com for a few bucks.

I know mini pages are the way to go but now life gets in the way of time.

Thats enough rant.

fell free to buy my domains for big bucks if you want. somebody is going to some day guaranteed.
