Best registrars for .CN, .JP and other Asian extensions

I am curious to find out the registrars who got names for people during the landrush. Would like to people who really participated in the pre-regs and got their names.

Re: Best registrars for .CN, .JP and other Asian extensions

Yeah there was no landrush for jp or cn
I just started thinking that jp might be good to get a few things if available.

Charley, this is what makes (or made) IDN speculation one of the last domaining gold rushs.

many people were talking about the gold rush, and many people didn't listen.

Aside from the lucrative opportunities that IDNing presents, there was NO landrush, which means no greedy registrar dodgy dealings. It was fair. Average Joe domainer put the effort in and they were rewarded.

Re: Best registrars for .CN, .JP and other Asian extensions

That's a surprise to me i.e. no landrush.

I was thinking about regging a handful of names during the .Asia launch. I would guess there wouldn't be a landrush for it either, lol.

Do you have some top registrars which can get those names.

thats the point, yes there will be. just like with .EU and like the IDN.RU will probably have.

idn.com, .net, .jp., .cn. .se ..... were all exempt.

anyway that was history - the boat has long left port

Re: Best registrars for .CN, .JP and other Asian extensions

Isn't it weird to talk so reminiscently about those days?

It was history in the making....

I would expect massive interest. Mostly from people who haven't a clue what they are about.

Should be another hold back the premiums and pump at auction type scams. Didn't really pan out on Mobi, but they are bound to try again.

Re: Best registrars for .CN, .JP and other Asian extensions

All those nights I spent racking my brains and regging Japanese IDNs were history in the making. I felt it then, I feel it now.

As for .asia the Japanese will probably have no need for .asia unless such a purpose is manufactured for them.

Look at .mobi and how its unfolding. My take is it won't take off unless the mobile browsers by default are set to .mobi. then its a crap shoot. Anyway get quality names during landrush hope like hell someone pumps the media blitz and buys something.asia for a huge amount of money and then dump your names before it crashes.

or invest in IDNs.

ASCII = "a-z" +"0-9" + "-"
