what IDNs can 50k buy today?

I think may be able to spend 50k on IDNs or even a bit more within a year or two.

I wonder what 50k can buy me today's market and what return could be expected within 10 years (provided IDNs DO really take off)

If you had 50k to spend today what would you buy?

Personally i would like to go after the best names that i could be for that amount instead of investing in many different medium quality ones.

I think that mandarin names have the most potential and that is where i would like to invest. Maybe some in arabic, japanese or russian to diversify.

Re: what IDNs can 50k buy today?

Japanese .coms! However, I think many of the top terms in .com passed the 50k mark several years jmo. I would try and get a portfolio of Japanese names in .com in a target niche, financial terms. The reason Japanese .com is no cctld to compete so far and the .net was not applied for. Just me rambling.

what 50K will get you now, and what it'l get you within the next year or two is a completely different story, assuming Icann proceedes with the program. So its hard to say at the moment.

Yes, if you are going to stick cash on the table, now is the time.

Otherwise, you can will spend your life on namepros reminicing about what might have been.

Course, alternatively you could always give to to JP Morgan to invest in some Facebook shares.

1) Diversify languages- 50-60% Chinese/Japanese and .com, or .jp, .cn too risky IMO. 40% Others.
2) Any German idns you can get at good market price.
3) Geo Domains and City Domains with population of 250k and up in Japanese, 1mm and up in China and India. Also any big cities in Arabic, Thai, Vietnamese, Spanish, Portuguese.
4) Product domains- catagory defining keywords- all major languages.

Re: what IDNs can 50k buy today?

everyone in IDN has their passions and theories discussed here.

My suggestion is to be passionate about 3 to 4 languages, and to be passionate about a set of vertical industries.

That way you will have a grid portfolio .


Secondly, develop one or two. The SEO and traffic issues pale to actually trying to see the business aspects of a great keyword generic.

I would qualify that. Cities really need to be in their own language, unless they are World Class Tourist Destinations. Rome, Paris or London are fine in any language.

I think it might be easier to find "partners" to develop IDN city domains with as well, and certainly the content is easy to pull, and lots of advertising opportunities.
