Re: .asia IDN approved

Well.......hot damn....

Nothing better than a tld named after a really bad ...1970's soft rock band...(grin)

A gtld gets a letter from ICANN to proceed....

Dogs not barking...Edgar Allen Poe etc...

variant..not used
aliasing...not used
mirroring ...not used

DNAME...not used
BNAME...not used

Request for $185,000 for a new GTLD submission not applicable....
IANA reference document not an ICANN document

So I guess there is an email to Chuck Gomes looming or floating somewhere ?


why is dot asia as a GTLD more special than net/com/org/info/name/tel/museum/aero ?

A very nice 'smoking gun' memo to throw over to the ASCII forums...

regards,

IDNF moonie

They still don't let the biggest country in Asia register domains in .asia.

Re: .asia IDN approved

Says it all:

-------
Meant for residents and companies of Asian countries, the .asia sTLD hasn’t really caught on. Registrations have dipped below 200,000 and continue to fall, according to HosterStats.com. HosterStats reports 174,288 .asia domains registered as of the beginning of October, down from about 215,000 earlier in the year.
-------

A registry actually losing registrations ..... who could have predicted such a failure

I guess only Mr wot is propping up this company .....

Re: .asia IDN approved

need for IDN should read:

need for IDN gtld's .
or approach of IDN gtld's for current gtlds like dot Asia and dot Com...

make it as clear as a sniper's laser on the forehead of a target...

and please post the picture of Edmun waving the ICANN letter....
comparisons to Neville Chamberlain not withstanding....

If I am the Wot to wot you is referring to then I don't think my 2 .asia would make a lot of difference.

Unless of course the number of registrations dropped to 4 then I would own 50% of them. :p

IDN might be his saving grace....he might know that too if he has a marketing machine to build the brand. .asia might look nice as idn.idn.
