what a joke this org/机构/орг is

I own 12 .orgs, some chinese, some Russian

following the link on the PIR.org page that specifically says which registrars support 机构 or орг or both.. i work my way down the list.

There are 16 registrars that support these 2 new gTLDs according to the PIR site

but in reality:

50% of them are resellers that do not sell to the public
20% of them do not supports IDNs in any shape or form
20% of them support IDN.org, but not idn.idn

and 2 do seem to support idn.idn. but they report "taken" or "reserved".

Glad i'm not heavily into .org, it's a clusterfuck

and whoever has backordered my hotels.org in Russian - you can go fuck yourself, don't think of coming to me trying to sell it, I'll drop mine before I play this registry extortion game

Re: what a joke this org/机构/орг is

The good news is perhaps the launch will overall be a massive failure.

I just checked a few and can confirm.

Dynadot is by far the best. They have elected to only take one pre-registration per domain, so in essence all the best ones are probably taken already. They show 'taken' if they already have a pre-reg or 'reserved' if the domain is registered at the registry level, i.e. sex, poker etc.

Ru-Center looks OK, but they don't distringuish between real 'reserved' domains and other strings which they mark as 'reserved' but are not 'reserved' at Dynadot. These guys are the type to get names for themselves and auction them off later on, like they did for .py, if I remember correctly.

They are some other registrars who don't even show reserved domains as reserved, so clearly these registrars are taking everyone's money and will figure out who to refund (and how. account credits I would guess, no real refund) after the launch. That's domaindiscount24.com for example.

I wonder how long it will take for ОРГ zone > cyrillic.org. If it happens on launch day or shortly after, it's a good sign for PIR.

It looks like this is exactly what they are doing.

All of my .orgs in Russian, Chinese, and Japanese have been backordered by someone else. Except one.

Re: what a joke this org/机构/орг is

I'm thinking this might be a flop besides perhaps Russian. No real numbers to base this off of, but my gut tells me Hindi is going to have low registrations and Chinese almost seems like a no show. PIR reserved a bunch and some premiums are available for hand reg. Just hand regged a strong keyword for the heck of it.

Did anybody know?

I pre regged two Chinese that I have the .org for with websites and ended up hand regging a few premium city.机构 so I guess little interest. Just TOO many various whatever's coming out at the same time!

Seriously, everything but the very best is available in Chinese.org. And most of the very best are reserved!

Re: what a joke this org/机构/орг is

As Gary said, what a clusterfuck. In some cases PIR even reserved secondary domains and left primary terms available for registration.

Namedrive:

Failure Reason: Your entry does not contain a valid TLD.

Sigh.

The .org's I had that weren't in the blocklist must suck because Dynadot got the lot for me. Probably not a good sign at all.

Others in the "Premium" domain list:

xn--90auioef футбол
xn--h1agd3a5b фильм

As I posted earlier, I got these

北京.机构
上海.机构
中文.机构

I would put them at close to the very best?

And yes, second rate names were reserved!
