As I gave no price except for "around" and there were no offers (I for one am never offended by offers) at all that indicates zero interest in my book?

Maybe the problem we have here is too many penny auctions and subsequently potential buyers expect giveaways all the time perhaps?

Re: What's the word on Russian domains?

That definitely has a bearing, and the fact that most of us are holding a large number of names, with their corresponding renewal fees. (for several years, now).

Anyone looking in, sees a name for $50, that would be $50,000 in English, and there is definitely a percieved lack of value.

Its a matter of timing now, the prices are, for sure, going to climb significantly, when ICANN and Verisign, cut to the chase, and really get this show on the road.

Re: What's the word on Russian domains?

That is mostly true, Bill.

But there are some decent ascii generic terms, that might not make much traffic/revenue on a parking page...yet they would command high prices to purchase.

Development of IDNs, will also make a difference, IMO.

I think this has a huge impact.

Also, there are still some good to great names still available. Hell, I found a 100k+ exact Japanese the other day. Gets traffic and revenue. A few 20k+ Chinese also. A good "native" landrush should wipe the rest out. But then that's only going to happen after .IDN gTLDs.

So we are still stuck in this circle. It's really like being trapped in a bad trip but those only last a few hours. What year is this?

Re: What's the word on Russian domains?

I'd be surprised if they actually drop, even though they're in PENDING DELETE. They'll be magically renewed on the 11th hour. Registrar for those is dotster -- bet it's the same guy whose domains I had been watching and backordering through snap.

If they do drop you already have a fair bit of competition at Snap.

Yeah, I was surprised to see all this Russian premium stuff dropping but then again checked the whois and they are all regged until november 2012.

Re: What's the word on Russian domains?

I'll be surprised if any of these names actually become available. I asked name.com about one of theirs that snapnames is listing at the moment as an expired name with a closing soon date. They told me it was happily sitting in the owner's account. Even if they didn't renew, they said it wouldn't be available for several months.

Same here. Predictably, those two single ruskis have been renewed.

I wouldn't think anything of it, but I see that the names still listed at snapnames registered at dotster with 14 bidders has in its whois status "PENDING DELETE".

I thought it was impossible to pull back a name at that stage.

Is it?

Re: What's the word on Russian domains?

OK I think I know why I had this confusion.

The registry didn't label the domain as PENDING DELETE, but the registrar changed the whois to:

Pending Deletion
P.O. Box 821650
Vancouver, WA 98682
US

So the registrar can pull it back. OK.
