It's because you opened the account in the future, it hasn't happened yet.

Re: Dot VN Announces Vietnamese IDN Registrations Exceed 101,000

From what I can gather from their site, idn.vn is priced initially at $200? With that kind of a price and 100,100 names already registered, they have done a great job promoting their idn. Comparatively, in Thailand, the non-profit THNIC hasn't done as good of a job about publicizing the exisiting of ".ไทย" (.thai) as most Thais are not even aware that they exisit. Add that to the fact that they put lots of restriction on the domain name transfer.

Re: Dot VN Announces Vietnamese IDN Registrations Exceed 101,000

bảohiểm.vn resolves but still shows as available for registration. I think Key-Systems is having some problems with the back end. Anyways, 100 K new IDN regs would be great news

The fun is all here : http://tenmientiengviet.vn/jsp/index.jsp

click the big red button to access the UI

+ I'm not sure if I'm reading correctly but are they giving away domains ? I see a limit of 5 per individuals and 100 per companies

When I enter a hyphenated domain I get:

Quote:
Status: The number of characters of the domain name has been entered more than the maximum number of characters a single word in Vietnamese.
Suggest you return the form in the spaces continue to be registered.

You can't use the whois tool, it doesn't support IDNs. You need to click the big red button and access to the registration UI ( http://dangky.tenmientiengviet.vn/js...erDomainVN.jsp )

Re: Dot VN Announces Vietnamese IDN Registrations Exceed 101,000

That's what I'm doing but I keep getting the "too many characters" result. Except on two names. One showed available and the other one taken. (All hyphenated)

Re: Dot VN Announces Vietnamese IDN Registrations Exceed 101,000

200 seems expensive. Was that the price at the german registrars or the vietnamese one ? I hardly believe that they got 100 k regs @ 200 a pop.
