Re: ElliotsBlog: New IDN Article

Right now we are still bug-testing and troubleshooting, so the domains are mostly our own.

Once we've cleaned things up, we'll open listings up to the public.

Re: ElliotsBlog: New IDN Article

Oh, that's interesting. So you're aiming at becoming the Sedo of IDNs ( :D ) ?

I was under the impression that once out of beta you'd open the listings for IDN Newsletter clients only, or something like that (i.e. pick and choose the domains that are priced to sell and for which there is demand)

Re: ElliotsBlog: New IDN Article

Well, I said that we'll then open it up to the public, but I'm not ruling out the concept of filtering the submissions so that scammers/low quality/overpriced names are not on our site.

What do you think we should do?

Re: ElliotsBlog: New IDN Article

No idea really, I guess you should just go with what you think is best and adjust as you go.

Re: ElliotsBlog: New IDN Article

I don’t know what kind of resources you have for translation but if we could put together a nice pool of volunteer native “initial certifiers” here, that should help you a lot I think for the initial filtering if there are many submissions. Then you can go to whoever you think of as your “official” certifier with your target list.

I mean, everybody will benefit at some point from a reliable market place and the awareness it may bring so I am guessing it won’t be that hard to put together volunteers, right? At least until we have a good size initial list to get the ball rolling?

Anyway, my native language is not exactly top 5 but count me in if you need that kind of help.

@o.c. - Thanks for the very helpful offer. Trusted native volunteers would be greatly appreciated as we start to process a greater volume of submissions.

Good luck with the relaunch, very much needed platform for IDN sales after what has been happening recently. Needs to be distanced from the likes of Sedo and their total lack of quality control.

I am a native Suffolkian with a basic knowledge of English if that helps! :D

Just out of curiosity, how do you guys decide on the prices you have set for most domains?
For instance I see тт.com (Russian) set at $15,000 and then дд.com (Russian) at $7,888.

Is there any math involved in your calculations or is it simply based on what you guys believe it is worth in the IDN market or based on previous sales of 2 char cyrillics?

Cheers.

Re: ElliotsBlog: New IDN Article

At the same token I am quite surprised (in a good way of course) that so many of the 1 word generic .org domains on idntools are listed for x,xxx - xx,xxx dollars. Makes everyone elses .org domains look pretty. Best of luck with the sales.
