Pengyou.com/.net sells for $200K

Friend in pinyin.

Wonder if 朋友.com will attract attention, owned by TDC.

You'd imagine that sometime in the future, the IDN version of that will be worth at least 5 times the value of what the ASCII sold for.

I don't think so , simple reason is that I don't expect that an IDN will receive more traffic than the ASCII version even in the near future

till now top arabic IDNs are being sold for x,xxx$ !!

the increase of value of IDNs will depend on number of IDNs registered and number of IDNs developed, up till now the dot.biz and dot.info have more names registered at them

I think pengyou.com is not purchased for its traffic. I doubt it will have more than 100 natural type-in a day.

And history repeats itself.

Domainers register up a ton of domains in '98. Along comes 2000 and the Internet explodes. Sites are popping up left and right. And this is just an analogy: A guy goes to register a domain to expand his business and and finds out Shop.com was already taken so the guy registers BatteryShop.com and builds a site and sells batteries. Then another company from New England comes along that sells batteries and registers batteryshopne.com and builds a site. So gradually the dollar amount of "Shop.com" and "BatteryShop.com" along with the amount of type-ins grows larger.

It'll be the same with IDN.

As a pinyin, Pengyou wouldn't have a lot of Baidu or Google searches pinyin, but Chinese surfers have been conditioned to use pinyin for domains. Baidu itself is pinyin for those who don't know yet. lol

According to the WHOIS, I suspect it is Tencent, the largest IM (QQ) provider, who wishes to use the name to build a SNS. So it has nothing to do with the name's search volume or typein.
