    Not sure how much input I am going to get on this, but I am curious about IDNs and if they're worth more than their non IDN version (mainly in other languages)?

    I've been picking up a lot of German .de domains and the common spelling for words usually includes an IDN. I understand how some people might prefer the non IDN version from a SEO standpoint, but is the non IDN version worth more than the 'correct' spelling?

    Obviously this is a pretty general question, but I would like some input just so that I don't repeat my .com with hyphen purchasing experience lol.

    It depends who you talk to and it also depends on the market. People are generally scared of building out and IDN if the don't own the non-IDN, but I've done it in the past (8 years ago) and I ranked as well as any other website and Google displayed my domain in Unicode in the results so I would get clicks etc.. If you own IDNs just as speculation, I'd say check the traffic, keep if you have some or if the term is really a top desirable term, otherwise let go
