Or this can be done with the new site I'm developing.
I think I'll have a bit of an advantage...

belated introduction
 
I realize that I never introduced myself though I have been reading and posting here for over a week.

My name is rhys, based currently in seattle, born in Japan with family still there. My interest is japanese idn's both .com and .jp. I have professional experience in high tech and the internet industry, though I work in the game industry currently.

I appreciate this forum and it's members and look forward to contributing myself.

Introduction
 
Just wanted to send my first post. I've been following IDN's for the last six months and purchased a few. I'm waiting to quit my day job and become a domainer full-time. Never been on a forum before, hope to learn a lot.

Thanks,

Kyle

best of luck most ppl at dnforum see thru a brick wall and can't seem to grasp the importance of IDN. Hopefully they'll become IDN domainers

I'm an IDN newbie.

I have joined today.

I want your help in how to register and how to find total names register in any language.

My favorite Idn sector would be Indian domains.

I don't have any name as of now.

Hope to do something good :)

Thanks for hosting this forum and thanks to all members for your informative posts.

After being suckered in by WorldNames a few years ago, I've been a bit gun-shy about getting involved in foreign character domains again. This and other forums inspired me to read up and learn more about IDNs. It looks like international domains have a real chance to finally make it big this time with IDN.

Of course, my initial hesitation caused me to miss out on the cream of the crop, but I'm happy to still be able to pick up a few solid middle-of-the-road general terms.

Here's hoping IDNs have a bright future! (Also hoping that I don't go broke before that day comes.)

Hi
 
:) Hi

Nice forum

I don't know anything about IDN names.

I'm here to learn....

I'm still new at this and will let you guys know when I make my first purchase of an IDN. I am currently researching and this forum is great for IDN info.

I mainly want to target China, because of the internet population - China's Internet population will overtake US internet population by 3 times in the next five years in my opinion.

I will discuss internet population in another thread, but for now I just want to say howdy doody

nice forums...
 
Hello! Nice forum !

My name is lee in computer science and management.
Although I am in Korea, I have a plan to move to States after a few years.

I had registered IDNs over 300 in Korean very first time.
Past 5~6 years, 250 of them were dropped and only 50 are remained.

Point of my view, I barely sell them but also waiting for type_in_traffic after ie7 and win xp sp3 out.

I have such a 음악.com(music), 모바일.com(mobile), 러시아.com(Russia), 커피.com(coffee), 은행대출.com(bankloan), 생명보험.com(lifeinsurance).

If I have a new info, I’ll post it.
Thanks

Wow! You got the best .com domains from an industrialized country than anyone of us here got! music, mobile, bankloan, lifeinsurance!

I've got a good one, but .net - map.net in Hangul.

Hi,

I 'm DABSI leaving in Germany; discovered the IDN market some 3 years ago.
I had some doubt last year, but now I'm certain it will change te rules more than color tv did; traffic (and revenues) resulting from french IDN are the reasons why we have created cyberfrik.com

Ciao

Hey all!

I'm an Aussie, and have been domaining with blog .com's for around a year. Recently though, I got hooked on IDN's when I first stumbled upon IDNforums. Now it's goodbye life - helloooo IDN's!

The rest of my .com portfolio seems like utter rot now compared to those glorious, gold laden, IDN mountains that you guys have introduced me to! Olney, I owe you a drink...and if IDN's make me enuff $$$, I'm gonna' fly to your place in my own Lear & buy a beer :)

Initially, I was targeting .jp's, and some examples of my portfolio are:

dvd-rw.jp
金御.jp (gold)
御金.jp (money)
金貸し.jp (money lender)
車購入.jp (car purchase)
漫画家.jp (cartoonist, manga artist)

Then, I thought I'd better diversify a little, and so I went the way of the .Kom with:

одна.com (one)
две.com (two)
четыре.com (four)
пять.com (five)
шесть.com (six)
семь.com (seven)
восемь.com (eight)
девять.com (nine)
десять.com (ten)

and finally, a nice Korean one too:

아홉.com (nine - lucky number)

I have many more than this, but I really just want to say that I wouldn't have have had the foggiest clue where to start if it wasn't for the tools & info on this forum.

Therefore, a massive thanx is in order to you Olney for your time & efforts - you are greatly appreciated by myself, and the growing number of users on this site. May you profit abundantly for your endevours, dude!

Finally, any corrections or coments, particularly on the future value of numeric IDN's, would be greatly appreciated!

Cheers

Re: IDN Forum Members - Introduce Yourself
 
Hi,

Had been lurking around for a while and finally made my move.

Interesting that this intro is in a thread instead of a separate forum like most others.

Domain is not new to me but I had resisted domain "investing" for a long time. I decided to give it a try last year. So far I spend more than I make. One of my friend is a serial domain buyer. But I had never heard him mention anything. Is domain name one of the best kept secret? I'm finding out soon...

My best domain so far is whois.la. Still I think I paid too much for it and I had too high expectation of it's potential. I have plan but no time to execute.

It is amazing how people can register all the IDN without know a word of the language. For me I will just focus on Chinese.

glad to join you guys!

Re: IDN Forum Members - Introduce Yourself
 
OK, I've been participating already but happened across the intro thread, so I'll introduce myself.

My name's John (surprise!) and I was inspired to wonder whether there was a technology that would allow people to type web addresses in their native scripts after sitting down last year to try and put together a thank-you note, in Russian, to a man in Russia... a note which, I'm ashamed to admit, I haven't yet gotten in the mail! :o (Note to myself: I need to find this again and actually mail it!)

Compared to a lot of the big dogs here, I don't have a lot of domains... only a bit over 100, in several different languages. (I went through a really awful time financially in the past years, and definitely had limited financial means at my disposal when I was registering my domains; or I would've registered more.)

Favorite domains (I'll limit myself to 2 in each language)

Arabic:
سلام.com -- salaam.com
الاُمّة.com -- al-Umma.com

Chinese:
行业.net -- "industry or business".net
婚事.com -- "wedding or marriage".com

Russian: (okay, three :) )
полеты.com -- flights.com
инфо.com -- info.com
жизнь.com -- life.com

Thai:
ห้องเช่า.com -- apartments.com
อสังหาริมทรัพย์.net -- realestate.net

Hindi:
पैसा.com -- money.com
जान.com -- love.com

Re: IDN Forum Members - Introduce Yourself
 
Hey everyone,

I've come to this forum, because, frankly, my knowledge of IDNs is patchy, and I'd like to learn. It seems this is a constructive and friendly place to do so.

Looking forward to talking with you all,
Mike.
