Frank Schilling quote

"Frank is quoted as saying about the new gTLD’s:"

Quote:
“This is absolutely the future”

“We’re at this point where the dot-com name space — the entire name space — is exhausted.”
*

People have been saying that for years. Given there are only circa 1m IDNs registered and all the non Latin languages to choose from, why do they continue to ignore IDNs?

I'm not complaining - I'm late to the party myself - but have been pleasantly suprised that productive names are still to be had, which may not have been the case had they been interested. Just seems odd that some are willing to spend vast sums on new gTLDs whilst ignoring current opportunities.

I guess these are the "real" IDNs people have been talking about for the last 10 years. :p

While they ignore idn.com. Go figure....

FS overgrew .com domaining obviously
he has to be on the move to be on top of his game. I don't think he himself believes these new extentions will be a big success (at least anytime soon).

GOOGLE to the rescue!!!!!!!!!!!

They heard about the shortage of .com and changed the algorhythm to allow all kinds of creative and fantastic new "dash" domains.

He's spending a lot of money on them so he must think he'll be getting it back.

Re: Frank Schilling quote

pump n dump --- then see what sticks.

He is not just a domainer but will be the registrar so he wins if only one of his new gltds sticks. I think its a good move on his part, test the waters, use his influence, market the hell out of them, if they all fail oh well we tried, if one makes it, it was a successful venture. At least he is stepping up to the plate, personally I think he should have stepped up a few years back and grabbed a nice portfolio of IDNs, then again maybe he did?

I am anxiously awaiting the market schemes employed, do they(all the new gltds) follow the marketing plans of .xxx, .tv, .biz, .asia, .mobi, .co,. me, .pro, .info ect. or will they come up with something original that will work.

Re: Frank Schilling quote

A lot of people are going to make a LOT of money (at the expense of others) regardless of how these .anythings turn out.

If not sure how any but a fraction of the 2500 new .anythings are going to fare better than .biz (business), .tv (television), mobi (mobile), .xxx, .me, .info etc etc.

Personally I think the .geos have the best chance from the herd.

as was mentioned on a blog I read somewhere earlier, the definition of success means many things to many people. Will they be a .com, err nope? Will they make the registry money? all the extns you listed above make money.. even the epic fail .mobi has a million regs under its belt - so it turns a profit - who cares if you're not the biggest or the best, if it brings in the bacon

How do we create meaning? In many cases we are programmed by our
culture and the people around us. The truth is that all meaning is
subjective. Some of us are taught that having designer clothes, a
perfect body and having a lot of money is the true meaning of
success. In other cultures having a loin cloth, a lip plate, long
earlobes and living off the land is the true meaning of success."

Bacon is for beta males. Alphas bring in alfalfa sprouts.
