japanese urls no big deal

http://www.tmcnet.com/usubmit/2009/11/07/4469102.htm

Being able to use kanji, hiragana and katakana for Web site addresses would not greatly enhance convenience for Japanese because many are familiar with English and search engines such as Yahoo and Google already enable searches in Japanese, Internet industry experts said

at least Chinese and Arabic are a safe bet

Re: japanese urls no big deal

An article in the blog attached to your profile is quite positive on Japanese idn's. Have you changed your mind? I don't think Japanese people are big on romaji so ads haven't emphasized the domain names. This might possibly change in the future with the use of idn's. A domain name in your own language is more memorable than one in a foreign language. Anyways, if you have any you are interested in selling, please PM me. Thanks.

Re: japanese urls no big deal

"many are familiar"

That's the key.

IDN's open up the web to the others who are not familiar, allowing them to surf without heavy reliance on SE's.

Re: japanese urls no big deal

Why not make English an official language in Japan?
