YTD .コム IDN Stats Revealed! But not the domain :-(

Although I don't wish to disclose the domain name,
here are all of my .コム IDNs that have revenue (Year to Date, 2017)
Only 9 Revenue domains this year, so far, out of 1060 domains.
Not very good - but there is hope (hoping Verisign does some promoting)


DOMAIN UNIQUES CLICKS REVENUE

X.コム 117 13 $5.76
XXXX.コム 43 6 $3.18
XX.コム 12 2 $1.33
XX.コム 6 1 $1.00
XXXX.コム 10 2 $0.71
XXX.コム 10 1 $0.55
XXX.コム 10 3 $0.16
XX.コム 9 1 $0.12
XXXXXX.コム 10 1 $0.09

Since this is YTD, here at April 13th, the top one or two are (if the current stats continue).

We'll take another look once we get to January 2018. How's about that?

No .コム domain with more than 14 uniques (Year-to-date)

I use ParkingCrew - Do they show geographic origin, if you know? (I couldn't find that data)

Its not so great right now, but I'm still optimistic.

Thanks for providing some real stats. Many people are hesitant to do so.

Re: YTD .コム IDN Stats Revealed! But not the domain :-(

Those are extraordinarily good numbers compared to mine. Zero clicks, 107 uniques.

Would you care to share if those were premium domains?

He has some of the best Japanese domains.

More sad news if you ask me. Even at 100X growth the stats wouldn't exactly be great for the quarter.

CORRECTION: When I said none had over 14 Uniques, ... Actually, my top 5 sorted by unique visitors, descending order (Year-To-Date) have: 117 Uniques, 43 Uniques, 35 Uniques, 24 Uniques and 19 Uniques.

In my posted list of stats (Year-To-Date), (sorted by Revenue, descending, as you can see) - those were: 117 Uniques, 43, 12, 6, 10, 10, 10, 9 and 10.

I would consider them "premium" - however, my two most expensive ones (LOAN and MUSIC, at about $14,000 each, per registration) are not in the revenue yet this year, but they are in the top 10 for unique visitors, which, at this point, is nearly as important, IMO.

In the list of stats, three of them are TICKET, DICTIONARY and SCAFFOLDING.

Re: YTD .コム IDN Stats Revealed! But not the domain :-(

Another interesting look at IDN stats is by Language.

Considering:

1060 .コム Japanese
717 .com Japanese
7 Hebrew .coms
9 Portuguese .coms
1 Russian .com
10 Dingbat .com
1 Spanish .com
6 Others (odd-balls)


Running stats for all of my IDNs, showing the TOP 100 by Language (without the domain name), Year-To-Date, by Revenue in Descending Order (from $96.18 to $0.18), showing Language, Uniques, Clicks and Revenue...

Re: YTD .コム IDN Stats Revealed! But not the domain :-(

Thank you, very interesting data.

And promising, I would add that .コム, barely a year old, makes a decent showing at the top.

All I keep seeing is failure.

Either the term IDNer is now synonymous with eternal optimist or I've forgot how to interpret statistics.

Anyway, I'll keep my pessimism away from this happy train.

First of all, being a domainer usually requires you to smoke a little whatever, or drink a little whatever... to make your disappointment easier to bear, or to celebrate your success. (Or... to make your domaining more enjoyable. After all, it is much easier to register a domain like bananasquidworld.com while under the influence of a mind-altering substance.)

I would agree, the statistics are not very good, at this time in the history of the Internet. But they're much better than zero, and improving.

Although my Full-Japanese IDNs makes up close to 60% of my IDNs, 5 of them are in my top 50 for revenue this year so far.

The term "failure" you speak of... is a subjective thing.

If you let your domains all expire because they didn't sell or earn PPC revenue, then that sounds like failure.

As long as your domain hasn't expired, failure hasn't happened yet.

Sometimes things take significant time. And sometimes the time is not right.

I've also got to ask the questions....

Did Verisign promote .コム IDNs in Japan?

How many people in Japan even know these exist?

Are Japanese registrars promoting them?

Is Verisign planning to launch a new publicity campaign anytime soon?

Anyway, I'm still optimistic.

If you've got some top-tier-quality names, it only takes one sale to go CHA-CHING!.

But, maybe it's too early to expect an oak tree, having recently planted the acorn. Perhaps we could use a little Miracle-Gro®.

the way I interpret this data:

Parking is dead unless you own a ultra premium AND are lucky and even then it will only generate very modest income.

Very true. Parking will never generate a profit, unless you hold on to, say, just the top 10 domains for a very marginal return. More of a problem is that parking doesn't even really help cover costs even for modest portfolios, yet alone a portfolio of 1,800 domains!

But the game here is holding long-term in the hope of one day finding buyers. Will a secondary .コム market one day emerge? That is the question. It's a big gamble.

In the meantime, $15k in annual renewal fees for this portfolio. If the market was even slightly mature, the odd domain could be sold off to cover renewals, but that is not the case (at least atm) with .コム.
