At least 50 new names on whois for IDNs (What's going on?)

Is there a silent gold rush going on?

Any thoughts?

what do you mean 50 new names ? you routinely check the whois info of all IDNs

or maybe you're checking drops only ?

I've been checking the .nets ect of some of my names, also some new terms I thought were worth regging and have seen many new people on the whois.

It used to be the same 30 or so IDNers....

Outside of the premium array of names, there's a lot more than 30 "regulars", in my limited knowledge.

Phio - any languages in particular that you are noticing this ?? I've noticed the past few months or so that with Greek IDNs, there have been a couple of "new" people registering a wide number of Greek IDNs.

Yes, but not just a few 'new' people...and there is not really consistency with regard to language vs. home address. Are you seeing this trend?

Re: At least 50 new names on whois for IDNs (What's going on?)

didn't RD say the other day the fat lady is making her way to the stage, well I think she is doing a sound check now. IMO its "game over'

lots of names going to snap that are dropping, names that 1 month ago would be caught by one of us. dynadot has alot of snipping going on( maybe they alway did I jsut didn't notice)

its sad on one hand but enviable on the other.

btw WTH did you guy not notice 12K SOLD by idnnewsletter. maybe that is just pocket change for you

I seen the sales on DNJ, seems to have been corrected now but e-commerce was 'available to reg' when I checked .. Seems Ron missed a character off the front of the domain.

I'm waiting for the next act (the opening aria?), which I predict will take place when people with money start scooping up entire categories: for instance, all remaining Russian four-letter nouns, all remaining stations of the Moscow Metro, etc.

Oh well. I guess that sort of thing won't happen until well after the IDN bubble inflates.

(There will be an IDN bubble, right? Please? I would like, for once, to participate in a bubble as a seller rather than as a buyer).
