No. They are going to offer it to you glow, watch out for the email. :D

I hope they will publish the reserved list soon. Will be interesting to see how deep they dugg when preparing this reservation list(s).

My guess is deep. Very deep.

As of today it's certain all geo and porn/offensive names are within governmental reach only, geo will be dev. , Porn names - Blocked.

Re: Will at least 1 .рф domain will sell on day 1 @ 300k usd?

Is there going to be a frenzy for LLLL and LLL and LL
acronym with russian cyrillic letters when this starts ?

Are city or rural districts getting second level...???
Is there a provincial model for giving smaller towns 3rd level names in place ?

Last question...do they take Paypal with a faked passport???? (grin)....

thanks..
Steve

Re: Will at least 1 .рф domain will sell on day 1 @ 300k usd?

reading the cctld.ru site via a translator....probably 50% accurate for terms and intent ...

at least a little irrational exuberance is possible for the
many billionaires that are now millionaires ??????

so I think it is more than 10 on the first day...

Petrol/Gas oriented generics or abbreviations may be a few ??

It is very possible that even if some domains will be registered in day one - this will be just PR campaign for them, and no one will pay this amount in reality.

Anyway: 1-5

P.S.
Am I the one and only who can not reach this thread from Google Chrome? lol

I don't think I could concur on that. What possible purpose would be served by business artificially hiking up the domain main market, just to support a registery?

I think this rather assumes that Russian companies have budgets that are many orders of magnitude smaller than American companies, and that their Management Teams are comparatively stupid. I think you should question the legitimacy of those assumptions.

It was supposed to be (a few months ago?) a million rubles for the first day and now it's ten million. Trying to figure out the reason for this dramatic change in pricing.

Закон спроса и предложения?
Supply and demand?

I also don't know what is behind the drastic change but the reserved list will reveal alot...and from what i saw it is going to be very very long.

it is bizarre. Now I wonder even more if any will sell, or will it just be a PR stunt with a lot of alleged sales?

if they believed there was a lot of demand, then they could happily set a $1 start as names will go to auction if more than 1 person wants it.

to me, a higher start suggests fewer than anticipated people

If I had to guess, I would side with RD; reporting a 30k domain sale is no news these days, not even in the IDN world. 300k however puts it in a different light.


who knows. will be interestng though.

They correctly figured that IDN.рф, which is on track to happen in the near future, is more valuable than somewhat uncertain IDN.com in this market. They also read (somewhere) that top Russian IDN.com was sold for $216K. They put 2 and 2 together and came up with 10 million rubles. Just a far-fetched theory :-)

Shouldn't we be running some sort of poll, and the person closest to the correct # wins the money?

Re: Will at least 1 .рф domain will sell on day 1 @ 300k usd?

Well they cannot start at $1, because it is effectively a Dutch Auction. You wait for the day when you can afford it and then you hope to God you are fast enough. There is every reason to believe a Dutch Auction will actually raise more. The big boys either come in on day one or they don't. But seriously, can they really afford not to?
