Better to set IDN redirects as URL Frame or not

For your IDNs you are pitching to the owner of their .com counterparts, if you choose to redirect - do you use URL Frame or a simple redirect?

I had used Frame - but dislike the puny code shown in browser, so am changing to a simple redirect.

Thoughts?

Host it is best, If choice one I will select redirect, URL Frame work not good for SEO.

Thoughts? Never pitch to owner of .com. Makes you look desperate and will probably make them angry .... not a good way to start a negotiation. Would also kill you if it went to UDRP / court case.

Deals very rarely happen this way. Buyers come when they are ready, whether the .com owner or someone else. You can't force someone into buying your domain. Patience, patience, and patience is the name of this game.

As for redirect method, irrelevant.

You're selling .nets to .com registrants ? I don't get it.

As seesaw said, never use iFrames

+1

If you are "pitching" your IDNs to the rightful registrant of an ASCII.com, you are going to encounter UDRP procedures more frequently than successful sales negotiations. Your sales pitch will be used against you in the court of WIPO.

I know you're just learning the market here, and you may have different goals/expectations than those of us that have been in the market long-term.

We're not too friendly to folks that are looking to "game the system," because we are the system, as far as IDNs go.

Re: Better to set IDN redirects as URL Frame or not

Thanks for the advice - i haven't yet offered one for sale - and will take the wait and see approach. I really prefer some lease or parking income to selling anyways.

They are generic idn.coms (Russian & Thai) i don't own any .nets

Peace
