Re: .コム - We must be somewhere over the rainbow!

Japan is sitting on 8% of registrations at present. Was around 6% at start of landrush IIRC. Hopefully it'll increase now that GA is underway.

Dynadot dropped the landrush extortion fee bang on 0000 UTC.

Re: .コム - We must be somewhere over the rainbow!

Japan now responsible for 19% of all registrations. That's a good sign. Also a sign that landrush wasn't popular, and just serves to delay uptake.

Promising, but they're only 380jpy at Onamae:
http://www.onamae.com/newgtld/japane...neral_20160613

Seems like a one-day promotional pricing.

EDIT: I do really like the fact that it's listed third on their renewal fees page, right after .com and .net:

Yes, that IS good to see.

Also, further down that page they're selling subdomains off 日本語.コム

Re: .コム - We must be somewhere over the rainbow!

93.5% of all registrations for 13/6/2016 were from Japanese Registary. This is 418 in total. US registered only 12 and Hong Kong 8. These could easily have been Japanese using foreign registries.

GMO Internet accounted for 424 or 94.9%. I would guess that represents Japanese buyers.

The real question is whether momentum is gaining or whether this is just a flash in the pan?

GMO Who?

After Berkens:

"GMO Registry, Inc. paid $41,501,000 in an ICANN auction for a similar new gTLD .Shop"

That's Who!!!

Re: .コム - We must be somewhere over the rainbow!

I've learned pessimism the hard way... the 380JPY (~$3.50) sale is still going on:

http://www.onamae.com/newgtld/japane...secom_20160615

Note that two days ago (on the first day of the launch) there was a countdown timer and when I posted in this thread there were only nine hours left on the sale. The countdown timer is now gone, but the sale continues.

GMO is selling the shit out of these, and we can only hope (possibly against our wiser judgement) that the sale leads to long term sites and type-in traffic and not just spammers buying the discount domains to destroy.

Re: .コム - We must be somewhere over the rainbow!

Still, Google's dot-everyone -- which was the first Japanese TLD -- never hit 4,000 registrations.

Promising.

Would like to think they are going to get developed....but gotta think most of these are probably the local 'domainers'.

Is there a way to see how many different who.is there are for the registrations?
