Or lets put it another way.

Last month we exceeded a new threshold for Views on two days. This month we only didn't exceed that threshold on one day so far.

How many ASCII domainers are see that level of growth?

Re: DN Journal's Biggest Annual Cover Story is Now Out (No IDN mention)

this is what makes this such fun.

we are either going to go down in domaining history as the biggest morons ever

or

all the "experts" and the hundreds of onlookers will be left standing there having missed the boat and looking stupid

I honestly believe there is no middle ground here, it's shit or bust.

exciting eh..

Do you think the fact most who IDN's are for can't read English and the English speakers often only speak English is the main reason? That maybe sounds like the obvious excuse but seems too easy.

IDN's will make any investment look like a waste of time when this really will begin (idn.idn) and until then anyone who wants to will keep making various arguments but with time the arguments will look like what IE6 looks like now which was one other reason some chose to not check what's going on around idn's in a more serious way then they did.

Another reason is a few selected members at DNForum and other forums that quickly advised others to stay away of idn's, we owe them big time

I think that's why English speakers (especially Americans) stayed away from IDNs. If you don't know what you're doing, you can end up with a lot of junk (non-stand-alone Russian domains, for instance).

But I still don't understand why so few native speakers have invested in IDNs in their own language.

One of the opportunities I see in 2012 is selling to buyers outside of North America, especially in Asia. Easier said than done, of course. I have noticed quite an up tick in domain sales to deep-pocketed buyers in Hong Kong, China, as well as India and the UAE. As more and more people and businesses in these countries get online, and as the middle and upper class grow, I think we're going to see a lot more sales - English-language .com sales - emanating from these parts of the world.
At least this one came close. Just a bit shy of the bigger picture.

probably cause in China and India many people can't afford the $9/yr per domain.. However someone in China could get a very cheap .cn .

Too bad many ascii domainers won't be around to see it. They're too busy ordering their tickets on the Titanic with .xxx and then the next .bigthing.

How's all that .xxx traffic? Guys? Someone?

Someone has to sell those tickets.

To be honest, you would have to be pretty stupid to end up with 50% junk, and even that rate is easily justifiable at today's secondary market prices.

Which is why Jobs was a national hero.

He was just about the only bloke making stuff people actually wanted to buy outside the US.

"domain names"


Now try "domain names" on other languages and draw your own conclusions.

What that the majority of web surfers don't even know what a "domain name" is?

Hell, I had been typing them in since the 90's and didn't know what they were until around 04.

But people are using them more and more everyday and don't even realize it. Who cares if surfers don't know what they are called? Case in point.

Good luck with your TMs and your sky is falling routine. It's getting old.

Re: DN Journal's Biggest Annual Cover Story is Now Out (No IDN mention)

You missed the point. I was saying that unlike English the trends on other languages are raising.
Try domain names in Russian language.

My position is the same as always: I believe there is a great future for IDN if the domain names don't get obsolete in the meanwhile.

You just said what I said Chicken Little. You are ARE saying domain names are going to become obsolete or at least trying to hint at it.

SKY IS FALLING SKY IS FALLING! Run and register as many TMs as you can.

Register TMs it's how we fight SOPA!
