do you know about .ws?

I guess I know .ws is a crap extension, but I couldn't help but register these names:

xn--wgv71a.ws
xn--fiqz9s.ws

中國.ws
日本.ws

Are these just going to get kicked back to me, or can you reg IDNs in .ws? ( Not that you should really want to, I know...)

It's all speculation....

other than .jp .cn and .com the rest we will have to see over the long term.

Re: do you know about .ws?

well the whois shows my info, it's just the pages that don't resolve to my nameservers; I think, for the first 24hrs, that's true across the board for new .ws registrations.. I don't think it would be very smart to speculate too heavily in non latin-based idns, because it's pretty unlikely that .ws will be character mapped, correct?
