£5.com

Is £5.com worth anything, or is it trash?

Hi Ben,

If you can get hold of fivepounds.com then you will
have an incredible identity. Those who are saying
this domain has little value haven't the slightest idea
what they are talking about...

Take some advice... Get the owner of fivepounds.com
to sell to you, and you may have an identity that is
worth 5 figures, let alone £5.

Regards,

I'm pretty sure "£" will be disabled as per IDNA2008

I would drop that domain.

Re: £5.com

When will some people ever learn about the demise of symbol domains .... its painful repeating the same stuff 1000 times and it still not going in.

Yes, Lipps, it has been disabled but that wouldn't stop the
£5.com domain from being sent to fivepounds.com...

Both domains compliment one another, as they are verbal and
graphical reflections of one another and by porting £5.com to
fivepounds.com it instantly solves the "not resolving" issue.

Fivepounds.com would also help him to pass the "radio test",
otherwise how would such a domain be referred to verbally?

...also, five pounds is a great pricing point for retailers. Who
wouldn't want such a rare and uncopyable domain identity with
which they can promote?

Regards,

surely if it won't resolve in the future, you also can't "port" it, as it won't resolve..

Ok, good point :-)

I think that even when browsers/registrars have accepted (or
fully adopted) IDNA 2008, it will still work. My understanding is
that IDNA 2008 simply won't show the web page content on
the "blocked" domain, but if the symbol domain has a redirect
set up on it then it will bypass this restriction.

They never used to be, in the "old days" of IDN, but symbol
domains are restricted even now (under IDNA 2003) because
they only allow the punycode encoding to show - which, of
course, is a complete waste of time.

A simple redirect solves this, however, and should still solve it
under IDNA 2008.

If anyone has any more detail on this i'd love to hear it. I know
some people on here hate symbol domains and that's just fine,
but any facts you have to share are more than welcome.

Regards,

Re: £5.com

If it doesn't convert to punycode, it won't go anywhere. Try going to $.com. It doesn't go anywhere, because it doesn't convert to punycode. When IDNA 2008 gets implemented, £.com won't get converted to punycode, and so, won't go anywhere either.
