IE 7 drives foreign language domain names

Another good publicity for IDNs

IE 7 drives foreign language domain names
Carolyn Duffy Marsan

Microsoft's latest release of Internet Explorer will drive demand for internationalized domain names, according to industry experts who are predicting a sharp increase in sales of foreign language domain names. That's because IE 7 has built-in support for IDNs, as does Firefox 2.0 , also released in October

The credit actually goes to Dotcom God on DNForums.com.
I leared about it from there.

Yeah, DCG started the first real interest in idns back then in March then he added idns to dnf. Looks like we still need him to kick start our idn boom. Any suggestions?

Unfortunately, portfolio buyers, like IREIT, are (mostly) looking only for "multiple-of-revenue" purchases, which does not work well for many high-quality (ascii/.com) domains. And, as for IDNs, it may be a long time before a portfolio buyer will make an appropriate offer for a quality IDN portfolio.

Look Rick Schwartz bought Flowers.mobi for $200K. Was that based on traffic revenue? I think not!

If IREID want to play the revenues mutiples fine, but they are likely to end up with a lot of bum Typos where the traffic has been doctored. I think Adam will wise these guys up sooner or later.

Maybe he's sitting on thousands of .mobi keyword names and though the best way to get their value higher was to drop some cash on ONE other keyword name? :^)

</devil's advocate>

Not at all impossible but as Rick probably doesn't sell domains much, what would be the point?

Anything's possible, but more likely he just went for a "top 10" name just in case .mobi takes off like crazy. By that I mean a name that is an obvious fit and defines a multi-billion dollar industry.

Remember too that most of the best .mobi names are still on the shelf at the registrar (who test-auctioned the names put up for sale at T.R.A.F.F.I.C. i.e. they weren't pre-owned by anyone else) so while we can probably think of better .mobi domains than flowers.mobi, a bit of digging will show that they're almost certainly not available to ANYONE yet.

In other words, given the limited universe of currently available .mobi domains, Rick probably went and bagged himself the biggest one of the lot.

Re: IE 7 drives foreign language domain names

Personally I like his style

"I don't want everything, I just want the best."

Rules to live by.

I've been reading the mobi site & if you don't comply to certain mobile standards your site could be put on hold (not taken away just won't resolve).
Vodaphone is one of the sponsors of the extension.
I think the compatibility is WAP focused. That's not exactly good worldwide.

Could be beneficial for my Wapmail.com / .info (sorry not idn) Interestingly the .mobi was picked up by a Chinese company.

Well, many of us got some top 10 names in various languages, i got a couple myself, would be happy to sell for 200k a name. :p

btw, i do not consider flower a top 10 name. Top 10 are like sex, chat, games, movies, download, music...

"Flower" and "florist" domains, in ascii PPC, often bring some of the best revenue.
