Do IDNs go for domain hacks?

in relation to the more popular examples of hacks like del.icio.us and blo.gs, do domain hacks go with IDNs? not so much to form one word, but something like:

我.的.com - My company
OR 中.国 -China

Say i have a popular term like 国 (which means country), i can practically have many country names in this case, which MAY make the name (国) more valuable.

Any thoughts?

Re: Do IDNs go for domain hacks?

I think it's a hard sell if it's not developed.
Most Domain hacks that I know that have sold was mainly because it was developed.
To tell you the truth I personally never could type in Delicious correctly.
If you want to try it, go ahead but I'd initially start with the mainstream stuff.
Plus you still have to get an understandable good root domain.

Re: Do IDNs go for domain hacks?

I see, thanks. Well, its not totally unmainstream. I'm looking at some names that are something like,

cable.television.com
LCD.television.com
CRT.television.com

and along that format. Thanks for the input.

I think you are confusing 2 things.
1 is something like the del.icio.us or i.e blo.gs and the other is sub domains...
sub domains are a good advantage..the only disadvantage i see in them is some will confuse and if i.e u have Mortgage.loans.com they will go to mortgageloans.com

Also make sure you know how to interlink them etc so it wont damage your se rankings

Re: Do IDNs go for domain hacks?

Wrong example used, i suppose. Using Chinese simpified, its along the line of say 国.com. Alone, it means country.com. It can however be,

中.国 -China
英.国 -England
我.国 -my.country
外.国 -foreign.country

Anyway, its just for interest. I do not know whether to call it a hack or a subdomain.

it seems you are trying to use the chinese character instead of the .com ?

Re: Do IDNs go for domain hacks?

Actually, they would be...

中.国.com -China
英.国.com -England
我.国.com -my.country
外.国.com -foreign.country

Using 中, 英, 我 , 外 as "third level domains."

I don't care for the "cute" English-spelled CCtld constructs (del.icio.us and blo.gs) to make the extension part of a single word. They are a bit confusing, and I think would also lead to visitors to other similar sites, as 261275 has suggested. It's an interesting idea, though.
