A Secession By South Sudan Could Lead To Domain Profit For New Country

Posted January 19th, 2011


The average person has little idea how much money there is to be made in Internet real estate. While some were lucky enough to have the foresight 15 years ago to participate in the invisible land grab, it took years for the rest of us to catch on.

While most of the “good” (i.e. profitable) domains have been long ago accounted for, there are occasional wells to be tapped in the form of ccTLDs re-appropriated for vanity use. While the world watches South Sudan inch closer to secession, Domain Name Wire points out that this could be a golden opportunity for the emerging country to make a killing on the ccTLD they may choose.

Montenegro experienced wild success upon the release of their ccTLD, .ME when they encouraged it’s use as a vanity extension and there is nothing, but imagination stopping another entity from having the same. If South Sudan were to make strategic choices in their Internet identity, it could lead to a huge gain for the new nation continuing the interesting precedent for possibilities of financial stability in emerging countries.

ICANN and UNESCO Work Toward Implementation of IDN ccTLDs

Posted October 11th, 2010


From ICANN

ICANN and UNESCO have agreed to work together to further strengthen and promote multilingualism in cyberspace, and facilitate the successful implementation of IDN ccTLDs.

ICANN and UNESCO, in a letter of intent, have Identified the first area of joint collaboration in furtherance of the December 2009 Cooperation Agreement.  Under the LOI, both parties will cooperate, each in its area of expertise, to develop a reference table of country names and abbreviations for the benefit of UNESCO’s Member States and countries whose official languages are based on Cyrillic Script.

Other languages and scripts are expected to follow.

The exact scope of the project is yet to be finalized, but the proposed table would be non-binding in its use.  While the existence of a table may assist applicants for IDN ccTLDs in identifying strings, ICANN’s IDN ccTLD Fast Track application process and requirements would not be modified as a result of this project.

A contender wants to one-up dot-com as for the top spot in domain names by going one less — dot-co.

The country code for Colombia, .co, is making itself available to the public in June and is marketing itself as a high-end top level domain with the cachet of .com without all the problems of getting a decent name. Read More HERE.
