Are you renewing your コムs?

I am dropping most of them. If anyone wants to have them, pm me. You could have them for like $35 a name. They include names like prefecture.コム but not largest ones.

Re: Are you renewing your コムs?

You mean you are dropping .coms also? I dropped a lot of coms last year but this year I am keeping most of them.

Re: Are you renewing your コムs?

Jesus. If anything signals .コム failure, this is it.

I think the #1 cause of the problem is the browser manufacturers all defaulting to opening a google search page and hijacking the URL bar with search as well, and pocketing their 40 pieces of sliver from Google.

If ICANN and Verisign hadn't completely bungled the new IDN launch process, they may have managed to get some traction before the browser hijack.

It's probably too late to go back now. The Internet has been permanently dumbed down. The default settings for Safari in OSX don't show the full URL in the URL bar anymore, just the hostname, and there's no status bar telling you what you've about to click on by hovering over a link.

I think the only way out of this mess would be for Verisign (or the domain registrars as a whole) to organise production of a browser that brings domains back as the focal point instead of search. Good luck with that pipedream, I say.

I actually didn't think you registered any コム. Handful?

Re: Are you renewing your コムs?

I didn't get any premium ones but registered about a dozen non-premium. It turned out that was still too many.

Re: Are you renewing your コムs?

Registered just 2 and that is how many will be dropped, but then I am doing this across the board, at least drastic cutting back.

Re: Are you renewing your コムs?

Registered 200.
Renewed most of those I paid premium for a second year, so no decision to make.
Have earmarked 60 for drop this year, and there will be more.

Re: Are you renewing your コムs?

I think it is safe to say .コム's will have a poor renewal rate.

Re: Are you renewing your コムs?

Yes. What is that going to mean for Verisign's other launches?

Re: Are you renewing your コムs?

I am starting to think if I should drop every single one of my コムs. It's hard to imagine how they could turn profit in the future no matter how good keywords they have.

Re: Are you renewing your コムs?

Ryu,

Have any major brands used .コム urls in billboards or TV ads for campaigns at all ?
Not for corporate sites, but for products or PR etc ?
thanks.

Re: Are you renewing your コムs?

Not that I know of. As a matter of fact, I don't remember seeing .コム ever whilst I was browsing the web.

And the first hit I get when I google xn--tckwe is a yahoo Q&A thread where a question asks:

"I get a spam email of which body content just says ○○○○@exn3yhkzwd.xn--tckwe. I guess I shouldn't click it, should I?"

The answer given is:

"That's a lazy spam. If you click the URL, your email address will be stolen."
