Did get an offer of $20 on 红旗.com yesterday so perhaps things are picking up!

Re: Symbol domain at $1300 on Flippa

That's a risky strategy, bumping them such a huge amount.

Re: Symbol domain at $1300 on Flippa

Bid is at $4000 USD now. Do you think it is a real bid?

Re: Symbol domain at $1300 on Flippa

Went for $13600 in the end. Real IDN's don't sell, ones that have been made illegal by ICANN fetch 5 figures.

Bizarro world continues.

maybe a fake sale?

if that were true we should try to ask ICANN to make the real ones illegal too maybe that will help.

Re: Symbol domain at $1300 on Flippa

The seller says this in response to a question:

"As I've said in the description, the domain ☁.com was registered before the ICANN rule that makes the registration of symbol domains impossible under dot-com therefore as long as it's registered it's usable."

Excuse my ignorance, but is this correct?

Re: Symbol domain at $1300 on Flippa

It's usable but the browser manufacturers are supposed to be following IDNA2008 rules, so it shouldn't be accessible from the URL bar.

Plus the registrations are only supposed to be renewable during a "transition period" the length of which I don't think was ever defined.

https://www.icann.org/resources/page...-2011-09-02-en

"No code point permitted in IDNA2003 but disallowed in IDNA2008 will be accepted for registration regardless of the extent to which such code points appear in names registered prior to the protocol revision. The registrant of a domain that is no longer supported by IDNA2008 should be notified that there may be unanticipated consequences for a user attempting to reach it, and such names should be replaced, held, or deleted at registry initiative."

and

"When a preexisting name requires a registry to make transitional exception to any of these Guidelines, the terms of that action will also be made readily available online, including the timeline for the resolution of such transitional matters. The excepted registrations themselves are, however, not part of this documentation. At the end of the transitional period, code points that are prohibited by IDNA2008 will not be permitted even by exception."

Re: Symbol domain at $1300 on Flippa

I don't care about emojis as I've never owned one. But why did ICANN make them illegal? You would think it'd be the next progression in domain names.

Re: Symbol domain at $1300 on Flippa

Well, I can't recall anyone asking "the community" about it (surprise) it just seemed to happen.

All part of ICANN Bizarro World.

I can't see anything wrong with it, it's certainly not a security concern or senseless, unlike the ASCII newGTLD's to offer non-Latin IDN's in the 2LD. Sigh.
