本.cc - I know, I know, it's a .cc...

Well, I've bought a .cc domain, more as an experiment than anything else. 本.cc i.e. "book.cc"

What do you think?

Re: 本.cc - I know, I know, it's a .cc...

This just in - Edwin of IDNForums has just purchased a non-.com domain - full story at 11.

Seriously though, it is aesthetically pleasing and you can't go wrong with 'book'. If you develop it then the extension won't matter one bit. I just hope you don't start the great .cc IDN goldrush of 2006.

I thought of buying 'japan', 'china', and 'tokyo' in the .cc but by the time I made up my mind they were taken so good for you for thinking ahead. I definitely think it's wortht he $20 reg fee.

.

im sure Edwin knows what he is doing for its experiment, but if wanna-be millionaries see more idn.cc here, as thefabfive says it will be the start of the great .cc idn goldrush!

I bet any sum than in less than 3 months we are gonna be seeing people posting sales of many idn.cc here. Truly there is literally everything available in .cc from countries to cities, from generics to over 1million OVT. keywords, so the goldrush should start anytime soon...

Those who missed the first and second round of IDNs will be .ccing it all the way through. But will they sell?

You'll know that's true if I post about having bought a SECOND .cc

Hi Edwin,

For your reference; 本 on Chinese dictionary is mean -

1. the stem of a plant

2. the origin; the source

3. capital; principal

4. originally; at first

5. one's (the speaker's) own

6. indigenous to


BOOK is 書 or 書本

Thanks, but I'm really only looking at the Japanese market (so far I have NO Chinese domains - though I guess some of mine will work in both languages).

Re: 本.cc - I know, I know, it's a .cc...

My question is: Why .cc and not .info for example where it could make some sense ( to me that is)?

I'm sorry for my wrong "correction" ~ I really don't know that "本" is Japanese at my "first look"

And it is a nice domain -> BOOK.cc

Sorry, had flashbacks to the ASCII world where Godaddy has $20 .cc

Looks like Idotz may be cheapest at $25 for IDN.cc - although I didn't check dynadot or enom.
