There are already so many Chinese TLDs that my expectations are very low for China. I expect them to roll it out last, after they've screwed up every other language.

What's clear is that their pricing structure might be fine in the US and Europe, but it's not compatible with ROW. Onamae is still selling .コム at a discount, very likely at a loss.

They did not kill the IDN.com because .com and .닷컴 are totally different GTLDs like .com and .xyz.

So, they just wasted the IDN.IDN_com.

Re: .닷컴 and .닷넷 coming down the pike

Proportion of Japanese [IDN].com to [IDN].コム is difficult to measure due to Chinese sharing some of the character set.

Proportion of Korean [IDN].com to [IDN].닷컴 can be easily measured (Hangul Unicode range)

Might be worth doing. A low conversion rate might point to a pricing failure - convincing Verisign (via Registrars?) to try a different tack on the next one to be released - perhaps no premiums and a special offer during priority reg of a $1 "collect the set" opportunity.

If that caused a much higher conversion rate...

Ok, they wasted idn.idn which dilutes the value of all of the idn.com names. Everyone has been holding idn.com because they were told they would get the idn.idn version. Both extensions have been damaged and will cause major confusion if owned by separate parties.

Especially once .컴 appears in 10-15 years time.

Do you confuse the .com and .닷컴 ?

I don’t confuse those Even though I am a Korean native.

If you are a English native, I guess you don’t confuse .닷컴 and .com.

Maybe verbally confused but they will be converged to .com is more famous and educated widely.

If any site owner advertises .닷컴 or .컴 on radio, all consumers will type and visit .com site unintentionally.

That's why they can not advertise the .닷컴 or .컴 visually or verbally.

IDN.IDN_coms will never enter the mainstream.

Yes, at least any idn.idn traffic will most likely continue to go the the owners of the idn.com.


"Do you confuse the .com and .닷컴 ?"
No, just disappointed the names have split.

At least this will separate them from the current dotcom, so this could be a positive.

The radio test was broken when IDN.com was introduced over 15 years ago - there's no way (aurally) to distinguish ASCII.com from IDN.com.

At least with the addition of 닷, it can be pronounced 닷닷컴, thereby distinguishing it from .com. Maybe it will be like, "you've heard of dot com, now here comes dot dot com." Twice as good

Good to hear a korean perspective on this. Which makes you wonder if IICANN/VeriVerisign ever consulted with a native speaker before deciding to go ahead with this string.
