.WS Setting Standard For Global Domain Names

The .WS Registry has started to rebrand itself,  to take advantage of the coming rise of International Domain Names (IDNs).
What started as Western Somoa, and has been equated to Web Site, for some time, is now being rebranded, as "World Site".
Take a look at this nifty Video that they have released.

You would think that Verisign, the owners of the .com/net Registry would have taken the lead in this regard.

ICANN’s Vote Opens the Door for Fully Multilingual gTLD Domains

ICANN’s Vote Opens the Door for Fully Multilingual gTLD Domains

ICANN’s vote today approved new generic top level domain names (gTLDs), which may be applied for in any language. This vote not only paves the way for new domains like .Coke, .FedEx and .Target, but more significantly opens the door for internationalized domain names (IDNs) such as .קום, .ком and .ألعاب.

ICANN Finally Pushes IDN gtlds FORWARD!

After many years of discussion, ICANN has finally open up the international playing field to allow the furthering of IDN gtlds.
An obvious example of what will be:

Ownership of новости.com which means, News.com in Russian...will also include новости.ком
a fully translated/transliterated version of the English version of .com

This will also cover several other languages, which have been long available in the English .com version only.

Verisign, the owners of the .com/.net registries has made it be known that they will be going forward with this initiative.

With these historic announcements,  we should see a huge increase and interest,  in the acquision of  IDN.com domain names across most languages.

Availability of companies, or individuals to purchase their own brands, for example .coke or .apple, has also
been approved, going forward.

Much more discussion can be viewed HERE

Ultra Premium Chinese Domain Names 中文域名

Ultra Premium Chinese Domain Names 中文域名

My partner/wife and I own some Ultra Premium .hk domain names.

Looking to get the word out on these, that if the price is right, we might sell a few of them.

I'll also be sending out some letters to see if there are potential endusers, out there, as well, over the next few weeks/months.

The beauty of the .hks are the fact that they are bundled to include the original name .hk/.香港 , the varaint so if you have the Simplified version, the Traditional will resolve to it, and vice/versa.

Also included in the bundle is an English .hk , although it may be different than the original, since it was allocated on a first come/first served basis.


I'd like to get some additional exposure for them...so if there are Chinese members here who belong to some additional Chinese language forums, I would appreciate any links to this thread, you could provide. (if thats within the rules, of course.)

Heres the list:

I've included the variants, as well.
