Re: Updates

There was an earnings call yesterday. On the topic of IDN TLDs there specifically was no update. Still negotiating contract with ICANN. Emphasis by Bidzos on the lack of pricing restrictions, said they could even have different pricing for each TLD. Also said -not sure on the wording- marketing material would have to be prepared for the registrars i.e. In several languages (?). I think I understood the CFO to say he'd have financial projections for the IDNs at the next earnings call (in 3months).

Check the transcript if you can find it.

Yes there was excitment on verisign's part about the fact that they have tremendous flexibility in how they can price them as they are part of the new gtld program and prices aren't regulated the same as existing .com/.net. He said they had tremendous flexibility on pricing which was good in that it could help offset some of the marketing expenses. Marketing is going to be done mostly with foreign rgistrars and they aren't sure how exactly that will look yet. As for pricing I didn't necessarily take that to mean premium pricing vs. a flat pricing structure that could vary between each tld based on how much expenses may differ to market them in each language, still it is a possibility though. All in all I think Verisign is looking more at the long term approach rather than trying the pump n dump a couple premiums x,xxx (that likely will not renew each year) method we've seen from places like Donuts. They tried this themselves already with .tv and I believe really found it not the best way. We will see soon the choices they decide to make but much of that is still being decided.

Re: Updates

As far as I remember, 9 months maximum to negotiate contracts.

The puzzle remains why Verisign allows IDN.IDN to be put to the back of the new TLD queue when even ICANN attempted to prioritize IDNs over other "new" gTLDs. But that ship has sailed. Nearly all new TLDs have now launched, and IDN.IDN is nowhere to be seen or heard.

Obviously pricing isn't the sticking point. But equally as obviously, there *is* a major sticking point in the negotiations. I can't imagine Verisign enjoys this ongoing revenue loss.

I don't understand why they would launch the IDNs together with the other gTLDs. Now no one will notice as they are more less invisible in a wave of hundreds of worthless extensions.

Yes, I rather get the impression that Versign are happy to wait until they have the stage to themselves.

Yes, obviously there is a hold up. We are talking non-standard constract here and the ICANN consensus model is slow at doing anything like that. If there were a major stumbling block, I think we would be hearing some very loud noises by now.
