Should I renew these?

法則.com (xn--fdr306d.com) --> rule

The following are common Japanese family names
松尾.com (xn--bgtr5x.com)
後藤.com (xn--h4tn76f.com)
近藤.com (xn--x41a56r.com)
坂本.com (xn--ues438a.com)
篠原.com (xn--8mrr05g.com)

Should I renew the above? Your opinions would be very much appreciated!

Drop, I dont see any easy development possibilities for any of the names and the resale value is low imo. I guess the stats are not good ?

Well, the top Japanese names don't tend to get type-ins, I'm not sure anyone expects "family names" to get many at this stage"

Development? Ditto.

Quick drop and quick pick-up )

Mainly because of the email address possibilities. IDN before the @ email won't work for a LONG time still.

Re: Should I renew these?

Just depends how popular they are. If they are "top 100" surnames, keep them for sure. If they are top 1000, you are going to have to stomach many years of renewals fees without any income unless you have an amazing business model.

I took your advice and kept 4 out of 5. I also registered 內田.com which was the only top 100 name still available.

Top 100? Should take about 100/10 years to sell. Not really worth it.

Re: Should I renew these?

Occasionally you get lucky. I owned a .net japanese family name and it turned out that a famous soccer player had his website on the ascii version so it got tons of traffic up until he retired. It paid for its renewals for the next 20 years.
