Re: so what is going on?

Opinion:
Japanese dot com in idn.idn is not doing well currently.
poor in market.
poor in aftermarket.
Poor in Verisign marketing for sure.

Russian.

I believe the dot com as dot KOM in idn.idn for Russian is likely to be better than the Japanese and Korean rollout.

This market endured through the dot RU vs dot RF vs dot py (cyrillic) .
So the introduction of dot KOM as idn.idn should not be a shocking marketing attempt.

But I am anticipating that Verisign will conduct bullshit premium pricing in an absurd and poor manner again.

my 2 cents.

from a marketing stand point.... I think Arabic is likely to be the best.
mobile phone as primary internet and web access , a Right to left idn.idn will be really helpful for businesses in the Arabic speaking world. but more years of waiting is apparent here.

Re: so what is going on?

thanks! My concern with russians is that it's a BS country and can disintegrate any moment now. 1.7 % of world economy and rapidly deteriorating.
It used to be awash with money because of rampant corruption but now the money is over, it seems.

Re: so what is going on?

Is there any word on Russian or Arabic 'dot com' in IDN from Verisign ?e
I couldn't find anything on their site except for the old announcements of the list of ICANN submissions.

According to Verisign's site at:
https://newgtlds.icann.org/en/progra...iods/xn--tckwe

Trademark Claims Period: 13 June 2016 to 31 December 2017

They may have punted the ball, and maybe will get into full promotion in 2018.

I'm also guessing that a lot of technical tinkering is still going on under the hood.

Re: so what is going on?

It's been a while since I've been on this forum. Has there been much happening in the IDN space in the past 8 months or so or are we still in a very quiet phase?

Only thing that's happened in the last 8 months is tons of deletions.

Re: so what is going on?

IDNs are dead and those who cashed out on them early on, mostly due to fraud and swindling, are the only winners. There was one person on this forum who was particularly virulent with the pump-and-dump scheme, named rubberdick. Not sure if he/she still exists, but the main push was chinese domains.

I sold an arabic football team (al-ittihad.com) back in 2009 for about 10 grand along with a few other 1k sales. That was enough to recoup most of the other speculative losses.

This game is mostly a sham, move along and dig for gold somewhere else.

Re: so what is going on?

you say, domains are sham? Very strong, no?
Domains still are cool; As a business owner, I realize their value and it's enormous.
Domaining is changing, that's all.

Let's wait for someone from this forum to back IDNs up again just like how they did in early 2008.

Re: so what is going on?

For me personaly it's been 8 years, what a lesson. I truly believe that everyone involved in idn.com on this forum now has a master's degree in speculation. Other than that it's been fun.

Re: so what is going on?

Thought there would be a little more action on this thread after Jacksonm's post. Anyone? ...Anyone?

Re: so what is going on?

Still here, not much to say.

Lots of bumps along the way. Maybe some pumping and dumping in the early days, but I wouldn't know; I mostly did my own dropcatching. We can list the things ICANN did wrong, and the things Verisign continues to do wrong.

But the main "blame", if that's the right word, goes to the end users. End users who write with Latin-based alphabets are uninterested in domains with diacritcal marks. And people who write with non-Latin-based systems prefer domain names in Latin (really ascii) characters, or all numbers, over their own system.

Don't know why, but that's the direction things have gone.

Anyway, it has been entertaining, and I've learned a few things. But it has not been profitable.

Avtal

P.S. Hi jacksonm, I'm glad you stopped by.

They are dead... IDNs have failed. It is well possible that they will never be popular. I would focus my attention elsewhere.
