What IDN Languages are you Bullish on for the Future?

QUOTE: Most IDN registrations are in the Chinese script followed by the Latin script. It is worth noting that the total number of domain name registrations reported at the end of 2020 was 366.3 million4, of which 158.9 million registrations are under ccTLDs and 207.4 million registrations are under gTLDs. Jun 16, 2021

I think top of list might be:
German (most solid by far IMO)
Portuguese- tend to get steady but small traffic
Spanish- also steady traffic, and I have had a few sales
Korean- good uptake as demonstratd by Andre, going for the IDN-cctlds more than .com
Chinese- always bids on good IDN drops.
French-again, some traffic but few buyers

Have Potential and some low but steady traffic
Arabic- some traffic and lowball requests for sales
Thai- same as Arabic
Japanese- some traffic, expected this market to be much stronger.


I want to be more bullish on Hindi.com names...but hearing what native speaker techguy says.

Bullish on German and Chinese. Too bad I mostly have Arabic and a few Japanese. Arabic seems lifeless at the moment.

Re: What IDN Languages are you Bullish on for the Future?

Moved out of the IDN space with keeping just a couple of developed names in Arabic and German. As mentioned by Bill, and Kent 99, German IDN market is evergreen. Since the rest of the languages can be written using Latin alphabets, the IDN sector on all of them remain at the bottom. There won't be a rapid change for a couple of decades from now, just like how it went from 2003 until now. Cryptos are more profitable, IMO

Anyone know if there is a Korean language domain forum?

Re: What IDN Languages are you Bullish on for the Future?

German and Nordic languages will do well. They are buying them because users don't know the difference between IDN and normal domains and accidentally type IDN domains so the end-user wants both versions. Maybe they are also buying for SEO reasons.

The same could apply to other latin script languages.

Asian languages JP, CH and KR have the most potential in terms of market size and utility but they have a limited market because users don't accidentally type IDN domains.

The problem with IDN market is not the language but acceptance and other hurdles.

I am not sure why not more interest in Arabic, i am keeping pretty much only geos and keywords, not sure why not more uptake and interest.
Maybe basel can give us some insight

Re: What IDN Languages are you Bullish on for the Future?

I have many Tier 1 prime Arabic and they are horrible performers. Still hanging on. I actually "decided" to let 1 of the names expire just earlier today. Normally just renew in bulk and move on with existence.
