Number of .コム registrations takes a nosedive

The number of .コム registrations has taken a serious nosedive. Now under 10,000.

Re: Number of .コム registrations takes a nosedive

I'd like to see which domains are dropping.

Could these be those strange garbage domains that no one wants anyway?

Are these available to see in a drop list somewhere?

Re: Number of .コム registrations takes a nosedive

These numbers seem unlikely to encourage Verisign to move forward with their other .com-in-IDN gTLDs, unfortunately.

Re: Number of .コム registrations takes a nosedive

I'm still wondering (or hoping) that maybe Verisign launched these when they weren't ready, and that they've delayed promoting them in Japan (and worldwide) until certain devices, apps and software get updated.

I'm also thinking there could have been some corporate political issues too. And as an indicator, I point to ICANN's website, showing the trademark period to end on December 31, 2017...

https://newgtlds.icann.org/en/progra...82%B3%E3%83%A0

Trademark Claims Period: 13 June 2016 to 31 December 2017

Re: Number of .コム registrations takes a nosedive

thanks for posting.
I think many of the drops are very poor transliterations and trademark modifiers.
poor marketing for sure by verisign.

Re: Number of .コム registrations takes a nosedive

Only 23 registered without privacy in Canada and most of those are mine. Seems there are very few people registering these.

Re: Number of .コム registrations takes a nosedive

are you dropping pairs of same second levels at or near the same time ?
Of the 314 or so idn.idn's that did not have a matching idn.com , are those the primary group that you are dropping ?

I think Japanese marketers are going to stick with idn.com and idn.jp, that is that.

I got all 700 .コム to match my .coms, plus other big keywords in .コム where the .com was registered to someone else. I'm not dropping any, for now.

I have sometimes wondered whether or not IDNs would have been abandoned long ago if it was not for Domainers such as you good people here on IDN Forums. You guys are the life support system for IDNs. The international community should be singing their praises for you guys.

I paid the premium Verisign registration price of about $14,000 each for the .コム version of Music and Loans. I already owned the .com version of loans, but only have the .コム of music. A lot of premiums were priced in the $245 - $600 range. Many others were under $100 or $200. Many of the premiums were priced low - assuming they'll have value in the future.

However, we could also make the argument that we should have got the matching .コム for free or at basic $10 reg fee, based on how they were promoted in the early days.

It's like the stock market, or cryptocurrencies. You place your bets and hope you win more $ than lose.
