    Im just regging everyone now :)
    So far I have had a high bid of 200 on this domain. So I guess its true, value is in what someone is willing to pay.
    I am going to see if I can get it to rank as a pr domain now.
    Anyone intrested in linking please do. I think this would be one of the first IDN's that I know of that would rank on this side of the water. perhaps there are others?

    The xn-- is the universal domain name. This can be typed in on virtually any keyboard.

    ÏŠ is the letter (I assume) on the Greek keyboard.

    Obviously IDNs are ideal to use when targeting a specific audience.

    This is the future of the internet as I see it. People all over the world will begin to use their own native languages as websites.

    I don't know much about IDNs but being a single character one would definately have value. Even though it's a .net, I wouldn't be too suprised for it going in the $xxx range.

    How many possibilities are there for 1 character IDNs?

    Repped you both
    I checked the sites and for the common letter current alphabet Idn's I only see one left in the .biz
    Problem is there are so many for sale on Sedo right now. Speculation is that as Ie7 and vista propogates throughout the world the idn's will show great promise. I know of a few idn's that have done quite well.

    I also own サーチ.biz which in japanase language translates to "Search". I am doing nothing with this so far.
    Here is a dot com that I own

    xn--8na.comhttp://xn--8na.com Æ–.com
    It looks just like l.com but unfortunatly it is from the old latin alphabet and is only in languages in Africa and some remote countries. It is the latin letter lota that was changed dropped in 1998 in most languages and replaced with the current character domain that this post is about.

    Its very hard to get the correct IDN when looking at foreign languages. I thought I found a gold mine when I regged 電子メール.biz From the translation services it comes back as E-Mail but in Japan it is Electronic Mail which supposedly means something totally different than email. Let me know if you know any different.

    I have quite a few failures with the idns's that I thought were great but wernt so if you are going to register them make sure you reg at dotster where you can decide not to keep. I made the mistake of not doing this prior to trying my hand at IDN's

    Not many people know about IDNs yet. That's why he got such an amazing deal for a domain of that status.
