Re: Taweem.com - The First Annual IDN Giveaway.

Congrats on an unique new idea, but IMHO the problem is people are lazy to understand new concepts.

I myself don't have to time to develop mine, so would not developer other people's domains.

That's why IMHO this is not the right place to promote this. We, in here, have domains in excess and development in need. You should try places were the opposite occurs, like forums for php coders.

Re: Taweem.com - The First Annual IDN Giveaway.

Thank you for your opinion Jose : )

It is not necessary for one to develop a name if won. You can keep the name until you feel you would like to develop. Another option would be to point the names to a parking platform. We want to be a quality hosting company to all of you who need it. These are great names and i am sure many of you do business with a hosting company. So why not give us a try and possibly win some great names for free.

We are currently developing some IDN centric applications that will help idn investors in correlation to web hosting.

I like the design and look of your home page. But there is a but The image of the folded paper boats has the meta statement with 8859-1. I think it better that this text is replaced with utf-8.

There are still far too many sites that still use iso-8859-1 instead of utf-8 and we need to encourage people to use utf-8. Your site is of course utf-8.

As far as I understood the idea is keeping the ownership and giving away the admin rights only while getting paid for hosting.

Correct. We want to give away some names in exchange for the hosting. The point of giving them away is to share what we have and increase activity.

Re: Taweem.com - The First Annual IDN Giveaway.

Its an interesting concept, though slightly misleading, as you are not really giving away the names - more like renting them out. To be honest, I am not sure that you will find too many people ( especially here on IDNforums ) who would be interested in developing a site which belongs to someone else. However, good luck with the venture - at least you are thinking outside the box and offering something different.

I would consider it far from renting as the name belongs to the winner so long that they do not drop their hosting account for a total of over 6 months.

Im sure many would like to get some better names in their portfolio and not everyone here has great names. I am also sure that many require hosting for other projects that require it.

Once the name is won it is far from our control and it is yours to point anywhere you like.

Re: Taweem.com - The First Annual IDN Giveaway.

All the names in our portfolio belong to us. We do not offer others domains in the giveaway.

The majority of the names belong to me.

Sorry, you've lost me. I am simply asking about the names you are "giving away", who's name is on the WHOIS after you "give them away". Because if it is still yours, then clearly in no way are you giving the names away, you are simply letting people borrow them for a while.

Re: Taweem.com - The First Annual IDN Giveaway.

except your website says, and I quote .... "we remain the owners of each and every name" .........

I think you have at best a very confusing offer, at worst no offer at all.

These kind of deals just don't work out. Just one quick scenario, what if someone "wins" a name, develops a site with it, and then the owner (you), gets a $100K offer for the name from someone else? Are you going to share that $100K with the "winner", turn the deal down? No I didn't think so ....

I won't even bother suggesting you have a re-think because that will happen naturally when you realize nobody is going to take up this offer.

K.I.S.S.

The name is not eligible for sale as stated. We would not sell to anyone. The name is under your control. If people are interested in hearing about received offers we would be happy to forward them to winners of the names.

Besides these 23 domains we have thousands more. The basis of the draw is to share what we have in exchange for your business and never to screw people over.

I will state it again we can not sell your name.

Re: Taweem.com - The First Annual IDN Giveaway.

Sorry, but IMHO, it will fail for the same reason Bido failed: too complex.

But you're not alone. I've been there, everyday new people are doing the same mistake over and over: http://domainnamewire.com/2010/09/07...omain-trading/

Remember that the top selling App for iPhone for a long time was a farting button.

This honestly is not a complex thing. Win a name and you get it that's it.

Even if we had a 10 million dollar offer on one of the names we have no right as stated to take away the name from you which is under your administration.

The reason we don't just hand over the name is because most would take it and run. We are a webhost and our business is webhosting. That is all we want.

"Even if we had a 10 million dollar offer on one of the names we have no right as stated to take away the name from you which is under your administration"

So you will reject 10.000.000$ for someone who will pay you 10$ monthly?
