A♠.com Ace of Spades
 
A♠.com Ace of Spades

Note: I wasn't able to register this. Characterset error on dynadot.

Maybe someone else can figure out a way to get it.

PS: Typos in thread title.

Have you tried, domainsite.com? I just entered
the domain (xn--a-d3p.com) on there, in both
Puny and Unicode, and it's showing it as
'available'.

Good luck.

Thats the thing, it show up as available, but doesn't register.

Then there is the Queen of Hearts!

I gave it a try at opensrs and the same thing happened. Maybe Verisign has tightened up the checking to stop any more dingbats being regged?

Re: A♠.com Ace of Spades
 
I tried a similar name and am convinced its because we're mixing dingbats with regular ascii

Alpha is right. But the rules have been tightened up. It used to be possible to register mixed symbols and Latin.

Well, if this has happened then it's a recent
development... I remember someone wanting
a valuation on £sterling.com only very recently
and I think they'd only just regged it.

If I were you, i'd keep trying...

Looks like its game over for new registrations of this kind. Mixed €uro domains are also failing.

As with many things in domains, get it while you can!

I had the dynadot tech team manualy try to register some dingbats recently, they failed as well.

That would be correct - Can't register these using domainsite...... Rules are getting stricter ;(
Dynadot - once in a while yes but most of the time NO

Is the http://€u.com/ guy on this forum? Good job on cleaning the house on these! Similiar domains can no longer be registered. Meaning if any of these drop, they are gone for good.

I wonder if this is a recently imposed ICANN
rule, or if it's just registrars trying to 'clean
up their act'.

AND... is it just mixed symbol/latin scripts that
are affected or can you also no longer reg <just>
symbol domains? (e.g. €€€.com).

Lotsa stuff as long as it has mixed scripts :(
doesn't really matter if its dingbat or not

Yes, but not everyone will know how £$€! You have have to use Alt Gr $. Unless you have a newer keyboard than me in which case it is probably already there!

I'm not sure what are you talking about, but I have tested €u.com in continental Europe and they have the € symbol in the keyboard since they introduced the currency in Europe, since England doesn't use the euro is irrelevant if they have it or not.

Okay, the main thing would be, does it get traffic, now?

We are doing well. 1000€.com is getting some hits. And the £.com guy is getting famous due to a mention in the papers.
