Rick Latona interviews Director of .JP

here

pretty much what I said on my blog I think.


-- Japanese ppl generally don't know IDN's exist

-- the .IDN (.日本) isn't that important

Re: Rick Latona interviews Director of .JP

Just remember that Hiro probably isn't heavily promoting .日本 right now because there is no longer any guarantee that JPRS/JPNIC will be responsible for it.

Let's see who wins the contract.

Re: Rick Latona interviews Director of .JP

I have never been totally convinced about the imperative to localize the top level, but I agree, let's see where it leads.

Re: Rick Latona interviews Director of .JP

first ...it is nice to see RL put Asian IDN's in blog..



getting an exec from dot JP to speak directly that it is on 'fast track' is
nice...

nice to read the dot JP growth is steep over the dot.co dot jp .

kind of odd that he is rather indifferent with IDN.IDN...

at least the Russians , Chinese, and Koreans have a national pride and
cultural heritage pitch....


yes....on the grandfatheriing / aliasing dot JP....

Should JPRS/JPNIC get left out from the .日本 contract, the best .jp holders can expect is the priority registration right. But, no one know, really.

He was a massive flag waver in previous ICANN meetings, but not the last one - and we found out the reason.

I think if you have too distinct registries the likelihood of grandfathering is small.

This will cause confusion. It would also give Verisign the opportunity to take the high ground should they chose to do so. Following the example of the ccTLD(s) may not be the right commercial decision. One Strong dot Com is likely to yield more registrations than two weak ones.

Re: Rick Latona interviews Director of .JP

Is there any other cctld that is going through this zombie business fog like dot JP...

with JPRS/JPNIC facing a new rival etc ?

Why would government officials in Japan want 2 different companies at this stage prior to fast track?

they won't be permitted to use wildcarding etc....

is this kind of a bad version of the US ...Network Solutions problem back in 97 and 98 .....??

Is the political problem based on the economic issue of the dot co dot jp's
with one name/ one business/ must be Japan based ....


And that IDN dot co dot JP is simply not in the cards ???

And the experts scoffed at the notions in the early 1940's that television would someday be more popular than radio in homes, and in the 1960's that there would ever be a consumer market for home computers.

Smart Japanese businesses will want both the ascii and idn domains to get traffic to their business, and most likely the idn version for branding. Amazing to see all the Japanese websites with ascii.com and .jp addresses, but when the website opens the Japanese symbols herald the top of the page...this is especially evident on the various Japanese city and geo websites.

Hmmmm....native language website names that non-English speaking people by the millions can read AND remember....what a novel idea!

Because they realise that the JPRS-built registration system is such a PITA for registrants, so this is a way to get them to fix it without any embarrassment involved?
