kiev.com

Not sure if you saw this, but kiev.com was just sold for $88,000. Interestingly, киев gets 2.3 times more searches.

Re: kiev.com

Take a look at this: English is used just as much as Ukrainian in Kiev:

Re: kiev.com

Ukrainians just prefer to type киев rather than Київ

Re: kiev.com

The statistics clearly show that Ukrainians in Kiev don't use Ukrainian.

Re: kiev.com

This is some what related. The sale that got my attention was this one.

Russia.eu€24,000 = $34,320Sedo

Seriously, WTF or am I that out of touch?

I get a 404 when I go to the site. A speculator or an end-user?

BS 404. The web server returns a 200, not a 404.

Re: kiev.com

This will probably be Kiev in the Burger or Pizza sense. Buyer probably doesn't even know where it is.

Re: kiev.com

DNJournal this week also shows 3 IDN.eu sales in the 4 figure range.

BTW: if anyone knows of a Spanish or French speaker who could help me put up a simple affiliate site on my Spanish or French .eu domains, let me know.

Because it’s German, sedo must have sent the unicode, and the others in punycode format.

This was obviously Sedo's doing. DNJ has posted Arabic, Russian, Japanese, and Chinese before.

That really pisses me off. Sedo punishing other languages again. Also I thought there was a 9k .eu sale where is that? It seems a few are missing.

I hope you all don't mind a bit of self-promotion.

In this thread: http://www.idnforums.com/forums/2463...-web-page.html I introduced a new free tool to convert punycode to unicode on any web page.

If you apply that tool to the DNJournal web page, the punycode will be transformed, so that, for example, instead of
xn--e1aahubrme.eu
you will see
интернет.eu (xn--e1aahubrme.eu)

I've found this tool to be rather useful; I hope you will too.

Avtal

P.S. If you already downloaded the depunify.js script, you will want to download it again. About an hour ago I uploaded a revised version, to work around an IE bug that manifested itself on the DNJournal page.

That is definitely great news I think my Kiev.com.ua (.com.ua is the most popular Ukrainian public domain) is jumped in value. Thanks for the info!

By the way, anyone interested in Киев.com.ua or Київ.com.ua :p

Well basically, they only really support the German market, and whilst I am sure they still have territorial claims over the Ukraine they will not allow Cyrillic Domains even though we know their platform now supports them.
