idncurious is a tad dodgy
companies using idn

I am aware of many big companies that have already register idns (a quick whois and I get many companies such as walmart, google, hp- just to name a few.)

However, I am not aware of any big companies that are actually using the idns they have registered. In other words, although they have registered idns, the idns don't actually resolve to a website.

Can you list some big companies that are actually using their idns?

Actually I correct myself- i am aware of 1.

According to versign's website...

http://스타벅스코리아.com/ is owned by starbucks and I can see that it does resolve to a website

Re: companies using idn

The JPRS (Japan Registry Service) has a list of over 600 companies using IDN's here:

日本語.jp

Since this list is maintained by the JPRS all the names are .jp I don't think they update it much though. It was about the same when I checked on it over a year ago.

Suggestion to idnforums and idntools : sites using generic idns and/or well-known companies using idns be reported like the idn Sales. It helps to increase public awareness.

e.g. http://www.idntools.com/idnsales.php

True... but then, I don't know any MAJOR Japanese company using IDNs for purposes other than redirecting to their ascii domains.

It's only when the real big companies start using IDNs actively, the tide will finally change.

I disagree. I think the turning point will be when companies start to advertise their IDN's.

I am certain this is only a matter of time. IDN's provide significant advantages to the current advertising solutions being used. ie. the search box method or the qr code method.

Companies in Japan have much time and effort dedicated to their current ASCII domains and I feel they will be reluctant to make such a broad sweeping change.

Advertising an IDN that is redirected to their current site solves this problem and provides them with the advantage of a memorable URL for their advertising. It is simply the most efficient way to get users to your site.

In time the rebranding of the site with the IDN won't seem like such a risky change in many cases. It will simply seem to be the most logical choice. The ASCII domain can be redirected to the IDN to ensure that legacy bookmarks etc. are maintained.

Re: companies using idn

Yes, redirecting would be good enough as long as IDNs get actively advertised by a number of major companies.

Re: companies using idn

Yes but the Eagle really has landed finally when they redirect the ASCII to the IDN.
