Arabic .net insight?

Whats the verdict on some of the languages that Versign never applied for in .net? For example i have lots of Arabic .nets that are going into renewal and would like to know what is the expectations on this? I know Arabic was not applied for but what will happen or should happen. Your thoughts appreciated.

I think it is likely that Arabic .net will be transliterated in the future, but it might be a few years off. I would hold on to solid key terms.

Cheap bet to hold at least another year and see what happens. Good many .nets being picked up on the drops still. If Verisign is successful with idn.idn in Round 1, they may expand idn.idn at a more rapid pace. I think they were shortsighted not to include the .net in Arabic and Japanese in particular where they have quite a few popular ascii.net sites.

Round 2 is a long way off. The dust will have to settle on round 1 first, which as we all know, hasn't happened yet. Agree VeriSign should have gone with .net in Arabic, but they didn't so if you are going to hold, plan to hold 3-5 years minimum.

Re: Arabic .net insight?

I would not be at all surprised to see a Round 1.5 in which there are not New GTLDs, just more IDN Translits.

Re: Arabic .net insight?

.net may be the bastard stepchild, but the idn.com may be way out of price reach. Many have been held their "A" list .nets 5 or 6 years, so if you already have + - $40 invested, why not take another years ride for $ 6.75 (dynadot bulk pricing) and see what happens between now and then with idn.idn.
