IDN Domain Names

IDN Series Introduction

0

When I was writing down a list of a few things I’d like to accomplish in 2010, learning about the IDN market was one of those things. I know of a few domain investors who invest in IDN domain names, but I don’t know enough about them yet to invest. In fact, as of right now, I don’t own a single IDN domain name.

One of my friends and business colleagues is Aaron Krawitz, publisher of IDNBlog.com, co-owner of IDNTools.com, and an expert in the IDN business. Aaron previously wrote a guest post about why he thinks IDN domain names are going to grow in value, and I asked Aaron if he could follow that up with a small series of posts that could break down investing in IDN domain names.

Beginning tomorrow, I will be posting a 3 part series written by Aaron and his colleague Gary Males. To give you a bit of background about the two authors, Gary Males first entered the domain industry with early acquisitions of .co.uk names. Aaron Krawitz made his first big splash in domaining when he bought a premium Portuguese and Spanish portfolio. Both investors were looking at global domains from the outset as they saw a valuable commodity and a large untapped world market.

As mentioned in the previous post about IDN domain names, both Aaron and Gary will be visiting the posts to answer any questions, as clearly I am not well-equipped to handle them. Thanks to Aaron and Gary for sharing more information about a market in which I am unfamiliar.
