The Registry for 在线 & 中文网 is TLD Registry. Considering they are a Western Company I am impressed with how they have internationalised their digital media. Here are a few of their i18n features I have noticed:-

㊀ They have English & Chinese versions of their website
http://internetregistry.info/
http://internetregistry.info/zh-hans/
http://internetregistry.info/zh-hant/
㊁ Good use of language tags in the URLs. Rather than using zh-CN & zh-HK they are using zh-hans & zh-hant http://rishida.net/utils/subtags/ind...submit=Look+up
㊂ They have all their Social Media buttons displayed on their website including their China Sina Weibo http://weibo.com/tldregistry Now this may seem an obvious thing to do but so many western organisations do not do this. Yes they will prominently display their western social media (e.g. twitter, Facebook) but many who do have Sina Weibo (or other China Social Media) do not prominently display it (or mostly do not display it at all). A good example is UK Universities, many of which are on weibo http://blog.sina.com.cn/s/blog_6fab54120100vhyh.html If you go to their websites you will easily find links to their twitter/facebook/youtube but try finding links to their weibo/renren/youku

There's only one contract "group" I'm interested in, and I think they will be very near the end of the allotted time for contract negotiations i.e. December 2013

Re: 2 more IDN newGTLD contracts signed

They all seem very long (i'm not talking about the xn-- version of the IDNs), and almost all doomed to immediate failure.

Who on earth is going to make money from .directory or .voyage.

The mind boggles

I've got a theory on this. You know how we often see chumps registering mymonkeyballzsuck.biz and we laugh at them, because they don't know any better and haven't been in the domain space long enough to know what people buy..

Isn't it exactly the same with the new NgTLDs? The only difference is it takes 184k to play



rarely have any thoughts as to what to use it for

Think of all the IDNs they could have bought for 184k

Why pick on "mymonkeyballzsuck.biz", my only developed site

Next round I'm going to apply for .wasteof184k

Yep, even Rick Schwartz managed to figure that one out.
