Re: i am not able to find good domains.can anyone give step by step examples

If you are having difficulty with registrations, you may want to look at some aftermarket purchases. There have been some very good names going for relatively low prices in auctions lately; you should be able to find some bargains.

Also, I know Olney, Rubber Duck and Mulligan (and I'm sure others) have given insights in the past as to some of their research methods and mining techiniques. You may want to search the forum for some past threads relating to that.

Good luck!

Re: i am not able to find good domains.can anyone give step by step examples

Take a look at what people are already registering and grab variations or the .nets.

Threads like this really have a lot of ideas in them. Many of the older threads on this board have all chinese city names, all japanese city names, etc.

Re: i am not able to find good domains.can anyone give step by step examples

There is no exact simple formula many of us can give hints.
I mean there's been plenty of auctions by RD starting at just $10
even I lost a few good ones dot coms even that went for less than $50.
Japanese & Chinese are not the only domain markets. There's Arabic, Russian, even French Spanish, & German.
The whole site is made of tips.
I'd especially start from the begining. There's just too much to give a simple step by step.

Well, here's a piece of advice - this forum is primarily a place to sell domains, and also to create interest in IDNs -> which in turn is also for the purpose of selling domains.

If you want to learn about "basic domain mining", i would suggest first refer to DS, NP, DNF, etc, to build up your domaining fundamentals, and then study the posts on IDNF - you'll be able to pickout the useful points more easily.

Re: i am not able to find good domains.can anyone give step by step examples

There are good names going begging in the auctions and sales on this forum. There's plenty of opportunity to grab a few.
Try and focus elswhere other than Japanese. There are plenty of names available in other languages.
Try dipping your spoon in a pot that is not so empty.

Re: i am not able to find good domains.can anyone give step by step examples

If decent domains are getting tougher to find, then you will find that the number of names for sale on the secondary market will also start to dry up.

People are selling primarily to generate cash. That cash is either required to register or renew. If registering is getting tough then the demand for cash is going to drop, whilst the demand for domains on the secondary market will grow. Supply and demand. Prices will go sharply North at some point.

If this effect corresponds with a rise in traffic revenues, which I am already beginning to sense, then there will be real momentum in the market.

This is a very profound question, I don't think anybody here can give you an answer.

Believe it or not alot of languages are pretty much wiped out

Tons of hindi words available but are what I would consider "noncommercial"

The commercial hindi words are long gone...........Many were regged in 2000-2004


Chinese - premiums are pretty much gone

There are still some nice keywords available in Japanese.

They don't get much traffic yet but I expect that to change.

Yes the only thing not completely wiped out are nice .jp domains. However be prepared jaik as they are expensive and you'll have to hold onto them for a few years. Do research and register wisely.

Very little traffic on .jp with above 500K OVT. Otherwise negligible.

I second Jeff on that warning, justify your purchases carefully.

Isn't that the Guru which previously told us that dot JP would destroy everything in its path including dot com?

I never said such a statement.

I believe both .com and .jp will be equal
I just see you as a lobbyist for IDN.com as most of your investment is in .com so you want to protect your future sales. The market will decide. You won't .
