IDNF members view of matched sets of domains

I have roughly 20 matched sets of domains in Chinese.

An IDN.com / IDN.net that match or an IDN.com/ IDN.cn match.

I used to have over 100, but I am culling the herd down to IDN.com only at this point.


I have 4 IDN.com / IDN.JP pairs.

With the Verisign IDN.IDN inclusion in the root by Nov ?
Are you reassessing your matched pair holdings if at all ?

thanks for sharing your viewpoints....



thanks.

Steve

Re: IDNF members view of matched sets of domains

I used to think owning the .com .net .org was a good thing, but I realized my point of view was that of a developer. For investment purposes, the best possible tld, .com or cctld depending on the circumstances, is the only domain that should be considered I think.. at least that's my opinion now.

A learned domainer once explained to me that it was best to keep only the best possible domain. The 'lesser versions' can be developed by others which gives you traffic and potential buyers + if they are sold and it gets reported, it provides a valuable price point.

To the question "wouldn't a set of domain be worth more than only the .com" the answer would be, theorically yes, but realistically No: generally buyers are interested in only one domain - the best one available -, and it's best to maximize the negotiation outcome on only one domain. A question we can ask ourselves is, what is the set worth if I take out the best domain of the bunch... or, would you sell only the best and keep the rest of the set ? Personally I would not sell a .com and keep the .net, except if said .net was exceptional, so why reg the .net in the first place ?

Not having invested in ccTLDs, I overlooked the issue that perhaps IDN.ccTLD might provide an edge to IDN.com in certain markets, and vice versa. Which one will be more popular ... idk
