Should I throw up a pixel site(s)?

I know this is basically very old news, but I registered these thinking it would be extremely easy to put up my first idn site.

Píxel (Pixel)
Píxeles (Pixels)

Пиксел (Pixel)
пикселей (Pixels)

What do you guys think?

Plenty of other languages available if there is any interest.

Re: Should I throw up a pixel site(s)?

There are over 1,000 such sites already, and AFAIK only about half a dozen have made any significant money, and only the original 1 has made really exciting money. So unless you can find a massively original "edge" - and a great domain isn't really enough, IMO - you're just going to be a me-too play...

I know there is an abundance of sites up already, but I kind of figured using an idn was the original idea!

Re: Should I throw up a pixel site(s)?

How many pixel sites do you visit on a daily basis?
Weekly?
Monthly?

This should be your answer...

None

Obviously some people do though and we are talking about a $7.99 investment. Anyway, I do not expect this to be a lucrative project, just something easy to try.

How I regret now having refused a $500 sedo proposal to sell my millionwordshomepage.com, 6 months ago.

Re: Should I throw up a pixel site(s)?

It's not easy if you don't speak Russian & you start to get inquiries by Russian nationals about the benefits.
This kind of site needs marketing too in that native language. If it's a language you geel comfortable in then go ahead. Since the site is image based it also doesn't pick up well in search engines.

That's one of the major benefits of using IDN Domains.

Pixels can be sold to a media company if it means the same or animation or graphics company. Good name, I wouldn't waste it on a quick fad.

Re: Should I throw up a pixel site(s)?

It was a very short fad that ended and the only one really successful one was milliondollarhomepage.....

I wouldn't expect alot of uptake moneywise if you were to set one up unless you come up with a new idea to blend in.
