Extentions

What is the best way to see if certain domain extentions are taken? If a registar says that extention is taken, does that make it true. Confused cause if I were to look up the whois for the extention in question it says "not found". Or I paste that domain in the www bar it says "not valid". Get what i'm saying?

Re: Extentions

not sure I understand what are you saying ?

Registrars have no interest in not showing you what's available. My guess is you may be trying to register a domain in a script that's unsupported by a certain TLD. Dot ORG notably does not support arabic (yet)

Re: Extentions

Do you know the difference between Traditional and Simplified Chinese ?
One blocks the other, it's one of the few things referred to as "variant block"

Re: Extentions

==========================
Whois Server Version 2.0

Domain names in the .com and .net domains can now be registered
with many different competing registrars. Go to http://www.internic.net
for detailed information

No match for domain "XN--ORU425G.COM".
============================================
its a variant block of this 投资.com
