Smile value of सेक्स.com [sex.com transliteration]

What would be value of this gem. sex.com in Hindi? I had received an offer for mid 4 figure value in past which I declined.
what do you think? Even brickbats are welcome.

Sex सेक्स is interchangeably used in Hindi for word intercourse in day to day Hindi.

Re: value of सेक्स.com [sex.com transliteration]

difficult to tell..
there isn't a lot of hindi sales to compare it to.

A few somewhat-similar domains that sold in the past, data from www.idntools.com

سكس.net xn--ygba1c sex genre specific arabic 04-02-2009 875 afternic 14-02-2009
секс.net xn--e1aktc sex genre specific russian 04-02-2009 875 afternic 14-02-2009
سكس.com xn--ygba1c sex genre specific arabic 30-01-2009 875 afternic 14-02-2009
секс.net xn--e1aktc sex genre specific russian 20-06-2009 3,700 idnforums 22-06-2009
секс.su xn--e1aktc sex/sexuality genre specific russian 18-05-2008 15,575 Итоги.su 25-05-2008
エロ.com xn--ickth ero (abbr: erotic) genre specific japanese 03-01-2011 5,000 private 03-01-2011

It's always difficult to put a price tag on gems like that. I guess it has different value to different people.

You won't have anyone buy it for 3 figures due to the limited market for this sort of thing in India. Drop it and move on.

Sorry, but this one isn't going to sell. Have you even looked at the laws in India?

For example, compare the sale of the domain سكس.com with the Japanese エロ.com . That's a difference of three figures. There's a reason for this.

Re: value of सेक्स.com [sex.com transliteration]

I am sure the guy who made mid 4 figure offer was an idiot. And if world is full of such rich idiots one of them may buy it.In my humble opinion. I believe IDNers are optimistic race. I am an IDNer as well.

publishing is illegal, viewing I don't know. If it's only a matter of hosting porn, you can always do like the guy behind DTIcash, move your stuff abroad.. just saying.

as for سكس.com, it was a steal http://www.idnforums.com/forums/2112...4875-each.html

Personally, I'd rather own سكس.com.

There's also the matter of culture. In Japan there is no cultural taboo. In India, there is.

Sex Education site of course, or maybe a toy store :p

Should get lots of traffic from the curious....in a population of a billion that could be some interesting numbers....even at a penny a click could earn hundreds a month.

Hard to price, but worth a lot if it gets the natural traffic, if not still a brandable name.

Re: value of सेक्स.com [sex.com transliteration]

Sex cannot be that Taboo if there is over a Billion of them.

Taboos only make the internet a more likely source of information.

The question is whether the Transliteration is widely used. Some are, some aren't .

With a billion taboos, there's a distinct possibility the site will be blocked.

Re: value of सेक्स.com [sex.com transliteration]

I agree with Bill, India has been trying to control its population for a long time, so if the IDN is prime and used to promote sex education , there is good likelihood the government might not ban it and a big plus to use Hindi IDN since many non urban Indians don't actually know much English.
