If you can't get the best, try another language.

One problem that some people have is thinking they can somehow get arround not having the primary term by registering variants, almost-haves, and so on.

If you see that the primary term was registered, better move on, there is plenty of opportunity elsewhere to get another primary term, perhaps in another language.

You can't beat the statistics, and selling to non-native speakers isn't going to work here, the real buyers won't buy if they see a native speaker making a bad comment about your sale, and we have a really good group of people here.

For those who can buy but still try to register new stuff: if you think that you can just jump in, say into Russian, and start registering the vey top words let me tell you: most of them are gone. You are better off buying checked and verified terms on the sales and auction forums, some of which are still selling very cheap. Spend that $100 and get a really good IDN instead of wasting time registering a lot of stuff that isn't so usefull.

There is an advantage to buying on this forum: the whole forum has a chance to comment and point out deficiencies, in effect you are often getting that elusive domain appraisal thrown in for free, by an international team of IDN experts the world has never before seen.

That was the case when DNF just launched IDN sales, but today, there is a lot of fishing .... using an anchovy as bait to catch a bluefin tuna.

i agree with Blast 100%, it is a shame to see people thinking they are registering premium domains in chinese/japanese in .com even today! cmon wake-up or at least be aware top gems are gone. so u have two choices, to register second class or third class domains in these 2 languages or move forward to new languages less explored.
