IDN.IDN thread from February 2006

Time flies, hard to believe we are about to have the 6 year anniversary of this discussion and many others like them when things became "clear" about the future of IDNs via ICANN, GAC, GNSO etc. Of course it was not thinkable at that time it would be more than another 2 or 3 years....we had finally got browser support for idn by way of Microsoft IE7 so that hurdle was then crossed. Verisign had published on DNAME, so some options for aliasing was in the works and all the stars seemed to be lining up....

Interesting to look back on the "impending" idn.idn rollout....of course since then we have had nothing but delay, delay and then the .anything gtld mess that has entwined itself and sandbagged the "legitimate" idn.idn fasttrack program.

Many have been waiting since 2001 for idn.idn, so they are now heading into year 12.

It turned ot to be 7 years (at least). More like 10 years if Hindi is your main choice of language. But if you didn't own them back then you don't own them now. And "drbiohealth" does own some excellent stuff.

Figure if you first registered in 2006 you have about $50 tied up in each name (+-$8 reg fee x 6 years) ....so if you have some good names you still have some amazing upside potential.
