2 reasons:

1) There is uncertainty as to who will get .gongsi (.com in .idn in chinese) verisign or chinese govt - so maybe .org has a future as a popular gTLD?

But more importantly... 2) PIR already announced they will be applying for .org in idn in chinese

As far I know, .biz is doing nada with idn.idn

And also .biz sucks big time IMO

Re: .biz DOA at least for Chinese

moreover, poker.org ascii sold for a million, the .biz i dont know. Not that the US market is the best reference but its better than nothing. Worth mentioning also : native IDNers seldom buy 2nd tier TLDs, the stick to dotcom and they come here to sell their dotnets so...

And by the way, when was the last time a .biz sold here ??

I noticed this as well. Sure looks like IDN.biz domains are not that popular !! ( I actually think I own a couple - and I really have to force myself to renew them )

Re: .biz DOA at least for Chinese

also, there was that 1 million dollar sale of poker.org.

.biz was created to help with congestion of .com; so with idns there seems to be even less need for it, or for .whatever for that matter.

Re: .biz DOA at least for Chinese

Maybe now this has been posted someone will pick it up. It seems very speculative, but depending on how things go with .biz in China it could have potential. If it was only $10 I'd get it myself, but I expect it will take at least 5 years worth of renewal fees to have some idea of where it's at in the market and where it will be, and even then you may be none the wiser. Maybe 10 years down the line we will be kicking ourselves for not picking up this premium Chinese .biz, but likely .biz will be the same junk it is today.

Re: .biz DOA at least for Chinese

I agree or at least IMO .biz sucks, I just didn't think it sucked that BAD! or maybe .org is better than I anticipated. As far as the .biz being available, I assumed someone would pick it up because 扑克 is a killer keyword, i mean the .tv is regged, the .ws was regged in 2002 and now being held by registry I believe.

I would assume it would be worth the gamble hehe for someone starting out, huge risk but in 5 years COULD be worth something.

Yep, tries to sell the .biz on here earlier in the year, along with other premium keywords. Absolutely no interest at all..

Re: .biz DOA at least for Chinese

I had also offered .biz with great keywords,zero interest but of course even good .com usually sell here for pennies.

Some people like .biz, Gold.biz sold for $16,000 just a couple of weeks ago.

I very much doubt it. If IDN.biz takes off IDN.com will be priceless. So you probably won't worry about it unless you totally fucked up your choice of dotcoms.

It might well be that .biz is more appreciated by some Asian natives than by Americans. But even then it would be N° 4/5 at best.

Re: .biz DOA at least for Chinese

Reminds me of a reaction I got from a native Japanese speaker a couple of days ago. Told him I have one of the best keywords in the entire Japanese language but it's a dot net. His reaction was a look of concern and "Oh, that's too bad". It was the kind of reaction you might expect if you'd told someone your mother just died.

Re: .biz DOA at least for Chinese

I think .业务 will be far more successful in China than .biz has been in English speaking world.
