How many .コム's are Registered so far?

How many .コム's are Registered so far?

And..

Is this number reported anywhere on a daily basis to people without the need of special membership, subscription or highfalutin credentials?

Re: How many .コム's are Registered so far?

I'm waiting for Dynadot to produce the page that lets me see how much each of my domains is going to cost me without having to hand cut-&-paste them into the IDN lookup page. Should be here soon, I'm led to believe.

That is an incredibly dismal number, both in total and for the market it was intended to serve.

Re: How many .コム's are Registered so far?

That's because not that many native speakers have [IDN].com so they can't register anything yet. Not that a lot of them intend to.

And on what basis should we expect that to change in general availability?

Re: How many .コム's are Registered so far?

I think there may be a lack of awareness, so I wouldn't be surprised if there is no explosion in registration numbers on general availability. Apart from Chinese chasing LLLL's in any extension.

Re: How many .コム's are Registered so far?

Another thing I think might affect uptake in Japan is their tendency to spell out the . as "ドット" when they write a domain down, so it ends up as xxxドットコム rather than xxx.コム

I just hope they're not doing that in the URL bar, because they're not going to get anywhere.

The lack of any traffic for .コム has been overwhelming and very unexpected. Also for domains with searches like: xxx.コム or xxxコム or xxx コム

Not sure about that. IDN.com outside right to left languages always had potential to be the real deal and even there they have been more successful than anywhere else.

Yes, and it doesn't help that Verisign is pronouncing it "DoCoMo," which at least one of them did in the recent quarterly. Way to kick the baby, VRSN.

Re: How many .コム's are Registered so far?

Verisign should be using whatever the Japanese call "."

Looking at wikipedia, it appears they use 終止符 for a full stop and it shows a domain name example...

https://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/終止符

So Verisign should be using the word "Shūshifu" rather than dot or dotto when speaking, because then Japanese would be more likely to type "." instead of "ドット".

Verisign are in the unique position to test this theory by looking through the error logs for the root zone, for punycode queries that have ドットコム at the end of them.

Re: How many .コム's are Registered so far?

I wonder if Korea has a similar problem where "dot com" is translated into a dotless string rather than .닷컴 ?

If they screw up and everything defaults back to .com then that is fine by me.
