CH¥NA AS¥A etc...

hi,
in 2009 i registered a number of idn domains based on terms including special symbols - some examples of Domains I have in my portfolio:
CH¥NA.com, ¥UAN.com, ©D.com a.m.m. ¥EN
I know this domains are pretty exotic and typically domainers won't see value on them - however I still believe this IDNs will get more attention and be valuable in the futue - What do you think ?
Thx in advance
electro

Yep, the ones that...
  • actually have a meaning
  • can be typed
  • get searched
  • contain characters which are not prohibited

Re: CH¥NA AS¥A etc...

Symbol domains which have world-wide, language independent recognition, are certainly valuable. However, there are few such symbols which are not on the list of prohibited characters. Also, your domains aren't true symbol domains, as they are combinations of a symbol and a character.

You spelled China wrong and that isn't even the symbol for Yuan.

Re: CH¥NA AS¥A etc...

my regular business scope is selling domains to end customers - consulting e.g. b2b about using domains in order to optimize google visibility etc...

above listed domains are a very special in my portfolio and currently I'm not sure to hold on or let them drop - thats why I asked this community assuming you know a lot more than me about the future potential of any IDNs ...

I know these names are not corresponding the "rules" regarding whats valuable or not - I know that only parts of internationalized keyboards contain the symbols ¥, ©, ®, etc - it's fact that currently many people don't know that these symbols even can be registered as parts of domain names ... the basic idea was to create a smart kind of nice to have domain - much more image relevant than seo etc...- so why not - imagine a financial business using the symbol of asian currency within the premium expression and...

AS¥A.com

that looks nice - doesn't it ?

By the way - which symbols are prohibited ? - Please can you post a link where to read about prohibited symbols and punycode ?

Thx

Basically, any non-letter symbol, including most punctuation in most languages, currency, quotation, and dingbat has been put on the list of prohibited characters in the next version of punycode.

What this means is, once the browsers update, these domains will not resolve.

all I can see is ongoing discussions and meanwhile the standard is idna 2010 - correct ?

I cannot find any clear information about that - searching on google leads me exactly to equivalent questions and your answers on that forum ... ?!

Re: CH¥NA AS¥A etc...

Go register some generic dictionary words in popular languages and you will have something of value.

Re: CH¥NA AS¥A etc...

To anyone reading this thinking these types of domains are valuable investments, think again. ICANN is not re-inventing the wheel here and neither should you. They are only allowing people from other countries to register their own language for domain names.

This isn't some sci-fi future where "anything" is possible. It's history repeating itself only in other languages. Grab terms and names that people WILL use and CAN type in everyday life.

Is it that confusing? Seriously?
