Re: IDN Status update for 2017

Ah. So maybe they're waiting to see what the renewal rates on .コム are, before they launch any more? Does that make sense?

I think so.

I agree that Japanese data is likely to be more pertinent for them than the Korean.

Accurate transliteration counts for something.

So maybe the Russian, Hindi and Arabic might have 2017 windows.

I don't think they care much about the inaccuracy in translation. They have their products and they're stuck with them.

Much more important would be the number of renewals at regular price after initial registrations were offered at a discount (Korea offered .net + .com at one price, while Onamae had Japanese .com at >$1).

Their renewal data on Japanese will start rolling in June (general availability at one year), so if we see another launch by September, I'd say we're lucky.

Re: IDN Status update for 2017

I think the most troubling part of the conference call was the fact that the analysts didn't even know to ask the right question, or when the renewal dates were. It's the analysts' job to hold the executives' feet to the fire. In the case of IDNs, they have no idea and don't care.

It's just another far-flung potential revenue stream that will not likely impact revenue going forward. It would've been nice to get a bone thrown in terms of cost/benefit over the short term, which is what those guys are really good at.
