Q3 2014 Verisign Earnings Conference Call

Q3 2014 Verisign Earnings Conference Call
Today, 4:30 pm NYC time
https://investor.verisign.com/events.cfm


I'll be listening and reporting in this thread.


A few points to note:
  • In the last Earnings call, the CFO said he'd have financial projections for the IDN TLDs for today's call
  • I did the calculation for Verisign contracting window, and it would seem that for .ком, contracting should have occurred on or before October 5th 2014.

.ком is priority number 61
It passed Initial Evaluation on April 5th 2013 http://newgtlds.icann.org/sites/defa...4-23113-en.pdf
The next step is contracting https://www.icann.org/news/announcement-2013-03-22-en
There is a 9 months window for contracting, plus an additional 9 months on request. Pat Kane seemed to say they'd take the full 18months http://www.idnforums.com/forums/3436...ence-call.html
April 5th 2013 + 18 months = October 5th 2014 http://www.timeanddate.com/date/date...&am=18&aw=&ad=

Thanks JS. The wait goes on to see if the translits of IDN.com will rise like a phoenix from the end of the line and under the bus episode.

Re: Q3 2014 Verisign Earnings Conference Call

What languages would benefit the most from the launch in your opinion?

Where will we see the action? Arabic, Russian, Japanese, Thai, Chinese?

Re: Q3 2014 Verisign Earnings Conference Call

I'm not sure I understand your question. When you say "launch", are you referring the "Approved Launch Program" or a normal "launch" aka landrush ?

Ok, your question is in essence which zone will add the most domains during the landrush, I think it's all up to Verisign's marketing efforts, including which registrars they will partner with.

I don't really have an educated guess as to which language will take the lead in terms of registrations in the short term. I am mostly concerned with long term adoption, that's all I think about.

edit: if you're looking to flip some names early, I would think the Chinese have had the most active secondary markets for domains, plus there is a lot of active Chinese domainers on namejet and godaddy etc. but some here might say that the Verisign Chinese TLDs are not the most promising so.. I don't know.

We don't know yet. Only thing we know is that by January 1st 2015, Verisign will have signed the registry agreement, which mean they should be able to discuss their launch plans.

There are a lot of things I used to "know" about the IDN schedule, that turned out to be wrong. But I hope this one works out as predicted.

Re: Q3 2014 Verisign Earnings Conference Call

Seems like ICANN took a week off for Thankgiving. Or maybe it was Cyber Monday?

If they take two weeks off for Christmas then we basically have about 10 working days!

Still they can do pretty much what the f*ck they like so don't cancel any vacation just yet.
