One thing is very sure, you have to be a genius to be able to get there first. I am not.

I think within the first year after Vista's release, probably a few IDN millionairs will be born. Who is going to be the first? Many members of this forum can be the first if they feel comfortable with only a million by selling their portfolios, but if they are a bit greedy and want multi-million then they have to wait a little longer. Developers will take longer time, but could be more successful.

Right? No? :-)

Re: First IDN Millionaire !!!!

If you look at the prices being exchanged for ASCII names right now, and the population of non-Latin speakers, many of you are millionaires on paper, already.

Although being a cash millionaire is pretty cool, what you have now is quite exciting and if you want, you'll be able to cash-out very shortly.

Re: First IDN Millionaire !!!!

i dont see what your rose colored glasses are seeing the smart money has yet to belive what everbody here thinks, i have bought many after market names on a crap shoot, if i lose it so be it , be careful of the hype, i have yet to see any outside sales other than between the members here, i do hope that the money will flow this way, but i have yet to see a market be successful that cannot expand its base, you guys have me ten fold in your knowlage but i somehow feel that the the real players in domain names have not stepped forward for a reason. goodluck everybody, and i will still be buying anyway.

Re: First IDN Millionaire !!!!

In order to be the millionaire, your portfolio (of let say 1000 names) should generate AT LEAST USD 150...per day.

IDN millionaire are existing already.

Re: First IDN Millionaire !!!!

150 a day, ballpark 4500 a month =54000 year on a reach 10X, little over half mil. i would say that nobody is seeing $4.50/month per name avg. on 1000 names.but i will add i do think that someday your numbers will add up.

I think some people over complicate things for example this is 1+1=2 it is not a geometry problem unless you want it to be , but the bottom line is Non-English Speaking People + Internet = We need "IDNs" (domains in there language ) ....... so if we do a little bit more Addition we can find out that NoN-English Speaking People also Own NoN-English Businesses = You Guessed It
NoN English Speaking End Users + IE7 = Cha Ching

I guess we can Add one more thing to the equation + NoN English Speaking Customers = You Guessed it Again ! TRAFFIC

Re: First IDN Millionaire !!!!

It all hangs on browsers being updated. IE 7.0 will be adopted in huge numbers, unlike most new programmes which are regarded as a security threat. The reason for this is that IE 6.0 is obscelete has has more holes than a cullender. In fact the truth is that it is so bad that even the constant patching hasn't really made it significantly safer. The architecture of IE 7.0 is completely different, as it has been built with security as the primary consideration.

Re: First IDN Millionaire !!!!

math is always needed when dealing with money, or you would have a zero sum game. your points are valid to the members here, they have skin in the pot already. i am waiting to see when other than this group, steps up with cash if just one major player commits then the game is on.

DABSI

Not to mention portfolios, there are Generic European IDNs that can already generate $150 per day EACH. This is pre-IE7, after IE7, it would be at least $1000 a day. Based on 6 years revenue return, such a domain is worth $2.19 million.

Re: First IDN Millionaire !!!!

Coming in late, you have a different perspective because you see an established group. As the first member I have seen members first trickle and more recently flood on board. I agree with you, many are small time, but I can assure you there are many that are not. Some of the guys on this forum are professional domainers, i.e no day job! There are also significant investors that are new to domaining that have come straight in to IDN as they see little potential with ASCII.

The problem is with this, what you see is not always what you get. Many players are not declaring their hands at present. I have done deals, where the players do not wish to be identified, I am sure there many other instances of this on the forum. I do not publicise all my sales for various reasons.

Big players may also protect their identity initially, as they do not want to pay a premium simply because they are well known or perceived as affluent.

Late or early makes a big difference, just a few (maybe 5 or 6) top European .com and .de IDNs, that guy could be earning $300 a day in PPC today.

A latecomer needs to sweep up 5,000-20,000 IDNs just to reach that figure.

The revenues from German Domains will not increase drastically after the introduction of IDN, they are already widely used their and there is widespread adoption of browsers that support IDN. IE 7 will increase Germain traffic by no more than ten fold in my opinion. In ther Far East, however, where existing browser support is essential, IDN is not an optional extra, and there is no conflict with ASCII the traffic values will increase exponentially. Take the German figures and multiply them a hundred fold for China and that is a reasonable expectation of potential.

Re: First IDN Millionaire !!!!

I think parking solutions are good but I believe that developing domains are better if you can.
Hopefully during the first week of May I can develop a few sites...

The increase in Japan will be higher than China - a lot of Chinese users have IDNs plugin - the one that CNNIC distribute for .gongsi and .zhongguo.

I estimate a 6 fold increment for Germany, and a 8 fold increment for France.
