Re: IDNTools on Times Square Billboard

This is the best thing I've seen. This is HUGE. Awareness has always been the key and you guys seemed to have pulled it off. I'm speechless.

Thank you guys.

Re: IDNTools on Times Square Billboard

Only problem is most people will say what the hell is an IDN ? :-)

Even when I mention a domain name very few will respond saying oh you mean those www. thingys ;-)


Let me know if you need to get in contact with any sign companies. I am a real estate broker/small landlord in Manhattan and have contacts. ;-)

Re: IDNTools on Times Square Billboard

Is it the first time ever that Time Square features a domain related ad ?

I was wondering that myself. Of course Reuters has Reuters.com in Times Square etc., but I've never seen a domain based company like GoDaddy, Moniker, RickLatona there...

Godaddy's big ad spending spree is on the Super Bowl and not Times Square....

Re: IDNTools on Times Square Billboard

Congrats! Well Done! Very cool!

Today Times square. Tomorrow Shibuya! (I look forward to the day when we see IDN's advertised in the countries that need them most)

Re: IDNTools on Times Square Billboard

We had one at Shibuya more than 2 years ago.

http://stat001.ameba.jp/user_images/...0034615458.jpg

It was a flop. Cyber Agent is no longer advertising IDNs and those names have dropped.

Warning to cyber squatters: DON'T REG THEM. YOU HAVE NO RIGHT TO PROFIT FROM THOSE CELEBRITY NAMES. WE WON'T ALLOW YOU TO SELL THEM HERE.

I guess they were too early to sell IDNs. Back then, IDNs didn't resolve for most Internet users.

BTW, the shameless registrar behind the billboard was asking JPY 4,515 for IDN.jp registration. And it prohibited registrants from transferring names away.

Image won't show.. Unfortunately some registrars charge the same for IDN.jp as they do for ascii.jp

Congrats to Aaron and Gary. I don't mean for their groundbreaking advert, rather for mesmerizing Steve into what must be his shortest ever post.

Only joking Steve

Re: IDNTools on Times Square Billboard

The problem is still the logo, if you aren't already in the business, you aren't sure which order the I D and N should go to read it.
