Dot VN Announces Vietnamese IDN Registrations Exceed 150,000

SAN DIEGO, May 18, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Dot VN, Inc., (http://www.dotvn.com) (Pink Sheets:DTVI), an Internet and Telecommunications Company and the exclusive online global domain name registrar for the Country of Vietnam ("the Company" or "Dot VN"), announced today that since it's official launch of the Vietnamese Native Language Internationalized Domain Names ("Vietnamese IDN") on April 28, 2011, registrations have exceeded 150,000 domain names.

Each Vietnamese IDN registered will be bundled with a free Dot VN web editor account which allows registrants to instantly create a website by uploading up to 5 MB of their own content and images. The web editor is set to launch by the end of the month and the Company plans to upgrade the service in the near term with news feeds from INFO.VN, communication tools, integration with a forthcoming classified ad service and other applications still in development. Additionally, Dot VN plans to monetize each web editor designed domain page with online advertising and banner ads.

"As the master registrar of the Vietnamese IDNs, our goal with the IDN program is to offer registrants everything they need to get started using the internet immediately," said Dot VN President Lee Johnson. "Based on our current growth, it is possible that we may surpass the total number of standard ".vn" registrations in the coming weeks thereby effectively doubling the size of the Vietnamese Internet. In order to continue this trend, Dot VN will redouble its efforts to provide the very best services and applications to each and every customer of the Vietnamese native language internet."

150 K is impressive, although most are probably giveaways to local businesses and individuals. Still very niiiice for a country such as Vietnam, in my opinion. The idea of providing registrants with free hosting and a web editor is a good idea too I would say. I'd really be interested to know if they'll be able to monetize those "minisites" though. Last time I checked, very few Vietnamese keywords had advertisers on Adwords.

The dotVN guys have no problem with taking domains away from you either for reasons they don't feel compelled to explain.

Think you're taking risks investing in .CN? These guys are at least as prone to corruption but without the upside potential.
