I count zero links to a Japanese version of this press release.

Come on, Verisign, it's not that difficult. Buy up that GMO homepage for a couple thousand bucks.

There it is. I think some folks here will have to change underwear.

I did enjoy this page, but wish it was easier to find.

For real. We shouldn't be seeing .ASCII on the homepage of the biggest registrar in Japan.

And for that matter, it wouldn't hurt to pay them to move to the Katakana or Hiragana.

Maybe you're right, that .com in ASCII will be the winner after all?

That was not a call. It is a scenario.

Re: Official blog post

What has occurred to me is that ACSCII registrants will apparently be able to register then names during Priority Access.

This would mean that SEX.com owner could register SEX.コム. That would seem unfair and an unnecessary priveledge in my book.

It may well therefore be that the Reserved Names that Verisign are on about are English Premium strings only. If so, I would not begrudge them that.

Name.com is also absent.

Maybe it is just a provisional list?

I think idn.com geo owners and one word owners might get
Ascii dot idn in com landrushers.

What a strange udrp clusterfuck that is going to be.

Re: Official blog post

The only reason to offer ASCII.IDN is a registry/registrar money grab, as far as I can see.

I count about 120,000,000 potential reasons why

X __renewal fee___ + premium fees = Veri$ign $$$

no doubt a percentage of those.. even just 1% wanting to claim their right to register their ascii site or mark in the japanese market is still 1,200,000 X hypothetical $10 renewal X lets leave the premium fee out in best case scenario = a cool extra $12M / yr.

Re: Official blog post

Interesting point you are raising guys.
In my opinion ascii.idn targets larger brands. It makes no sense to us but maybe it'll be the compromise that smoothes them into the idea of an internationalized namespace.

As NY posted, they could stand to make quite a bit of coin with ascii only, which would instantly make the adventure profitable.

Also give a new perspective on what the"premium" scheme could be as RD pointed out.


What I am most eager to see is the marketing effort. Japan is really homogenous and easy to target vs other cultural and language group, it's also well educated and savvy. If they can't market properly there, im not sure what to expect for Cyrillic, Arabic and etc.

27 now, roughly one month later.

Still no larger registrars like Godaddy, Netsol, name.com, enom, tucows etc.
