Don't you have to be an analyst to place a call ?

One of the analysts asked how many new gTLDs verisign itself will apply for and the answer was approximately 12, mostly transliterations of .com

He said: about 12, mostly .coms

I think we need a poll on this. What will they actually do? I say 11 .coms and 3 .nets

$%#$%^ can't quit the day job just yet........

so far only domainnamewire has run a story. I like this part "Most of these will be transliterations of .com. In other words, internationalized domain names (IDNs)."

Re: VERISIGN TO REPORT FOURTH QUARTER AND 2011 FINANCIAL RESULTS

Verisign confirmed: Arabic,Chinese,Cyrillic,Hangul,Hebrew,Japanese
I think we will see Devanagari at minimum in India so that's a total of 7

Then there's possibly Thai and maybe someone else wants to guess the others.

Re: VERISIGN TO REPORT FOURTH QUARTER AND 2011 FINANCIAL RESULTS

so do we get these? or do we have to pay an additional price :P

ICANN/Versign shouldn't even have money exchanged.. It should be given.. This partnership is messed up!
They should apply for every language.. This is pocket change. While they up their price each year they can't even apply for at least 12 .com and 12 .net.. Why? It's too costly ? :P

You have to pay to activate the variant but if you don't no one else can and it will wait for when the current registrant decides to activate it.

Re: VERISIGN TO REPORT FOURTH QUARTER AND 2011 FINANCIAL RESULTS

Since many have held onto them since 2000 I think they should be given for free... If .hk and other registries can do it then Verisign can.. We've pretty much been their guinea pigs for a decade.

My guess is that they only applied for 12 for a couple of reasons:
1) They haven't done this before, and they want to get it right. The fewer they start with, the higher the chances of success.
2) They are hoping that in later rounds there will be discounts for bundling and for serving under-served languages.

As for the registrants (us) having to pay to activate our domains under the new .com equivalents: Call me a crazy optimist, but I am hoping that my names are valuable enough that this extra payment won't make a big dent in my profits.

I would think one or two ASCII. Perhaps .vrsn/.verisign and .secure or something like that ?
