Showcase your best IDN domain name

in some country,s ( like Germany ) IDN domain names have a great value

Ärzte.de ( Ärzte = doctors ) sold for 56.000.- Euro


An internationalized domain name (IDN) is an Internet domain name that contains at least one label that is displayed in software applications, in whole or in part, in a language-specific script or alphabet, such as :

Arabic
, Chinese, Cyrillic, Tamil, Hebrew or the Latin alphabet-based characters with diacritics or ligatures,
such as French. These writing systems are encoded by computers in multi-byte Unicode. Internationalized domain names are stored in the Domain Name System as ASCII strings using Punycode transcription.

I know... but such procedure is uncomfortable... always decoding is needed...
Or to configure and to switch KB-layouts...

I'm talking you about why Germans pay so much for IDN... even for IDN.info they pay 4-figure...
Because for them it is 1-touch...

Москва.com

Москва.com IDN sold for $216000
Posted on April 11, 2012, 10:09 am, by IDN News, under IDN Sales.
DNJournal recorded the Largest IDN deal for Москва.com (“Moscow” in Russian) which was completed in July 2011 when the final installment on a $216,000 purchase price was paid. That is the highest verified sale price reported to date for an IDN. The deal was originally subject to a confidentiality agreement but Gary Males at IDNTools.com was able to persuade the seller and buyer Moshe Schneider to release details of the transaction, including the documentation we required to verify the price paid. Noted domain attorney John Berryhill was retained to handle the transaction and ensure that all terms of the sale contract were met.

Excellent thread! Although a word of caution to noobs- there is a steep learning curve to IDN market.

By the way- there is not need to post the punycode for your IDNs as most browsers now support direct type in and will not convert the domain from the language...

I have a few faves but a couple mid range are:

アイシャドウ.com (japanese for eye shadow)
アイロン.com (japanese for iron)
