Buying idn's, please read

I am interested in buying idn's in hindi, japanese, russian, china, or whatever. I want ones that are considered good investments. Adult genre welcome too. Currently, I have $1000 to spend so I want to get the best bang for my buck in the current market. I am new to this so I only want to deal with respected members of IDNForums. Thanks. PM me

Re: Buying idn's, please read

Hello monkmonkey, welcome on board. Excuse me for asking, but why not bid on the auctions? Are you looking for a particular market/niche/keyword?

Re: Buying idn's, please read

yeah, go for auctions, most names on this forum go for very reasonable prices.

If you want the best bang for your buck, I think you need to do some research and determine precisely what you want. Right now it looks like you'd buy whatever name is thrown at you by a "respected IDNF member"

Re: Buying idn's, please read

Monkmonkey

Welcome to IDNForums. My suggestion would be to invest in signing up at IDNtools.com for the IDN drop list ( http://www.idntools.com/droplist.php ). With that, and a little research, you can pick up some nice IDNs at at registration fees. If you are serious about getting involved in IDNs then that should be something you really should sign up to.

Also, as others have mentioned, look at the auctions that continuously take place here - you can also pick up some real bargains !!

Good luck

Alex

I second that. Asking people to PM you names is just looking to get dumped on, however respected the dumper is

There's some good advice there.

Do what I did - work out who the natives are here, and then just outbid them on auctions.
It will short cut your lack of knowledge, while you play catch up, and also gives you some confidence you are buying what is advertised.

And yeah playing the drop scene is also another good approach.

I'd also mention that IDNNewsletter.com is coming out with another edition at the end of the month that is worth looking forward to.

@monkmonkey: On the auctions, the best sign you can get you're after a great domain is bidding against a native speaker of that language!

Re: Buying idn's, please read

Send any names with prices to sales@idnnewsletter.com. .COM names only. There is no deadline. Names with high GAKT exact search volume that are priced under $1k are preferred.

We plan to get the newsletter back up and running more frequently (after a post-IDNEvent hangover) and will have several forthcoming issues. Thanks Jose.

Or just as effective - work out who is outbidding the natives - and outbid them!

Re: Buying idn's, please read

Another strategy some people use here when evaluating domain value is to check the reg date because most great names have been regged ages ago.

The problem with this method is, there are an awful lot of crappy names regged years ago, too.

Outbidding natives? No, I wouldn't advise that!

A friend told me he already received the Newsletter. So there was a deadline after all... I guess I am to blame also, as I leave everything to do on the last minute.

Also, why am I not receiving it?!

No deadline per the above. Keep submitting everyone, and we'll have another issue very soon.

@Jose - If you had a problem subscribing and didn't receive the issue tonight, send me a PM, and I'll be sure to add your email address manually.

Thanks for the interest.
