I have never got involved, or even thought to invest on IDN domains, Today i passed upon a listing at Flippa, Which they marked as an Editor's choice listing ( Which is an award for High value assets according to them ) and was wondering if these domains are really worth anything ?

If so, then how do you value IDN domains ? Based on what ?

Nope.. IDN domains are all but worthless for investors.

No end user adaptation and hence no sales.

Hi

I/m not a flippo user,
but when it gets to a point where controllers of a site, post recommendations to purchase, without transparency of selection process -
then there is a potential for worthless domains to be assumed as valuable, simply because it' s included in a featured listing.

as for idn's, those with traffic have value and those without it, have none.
i've owned a couple of them for 10+ years, but if you don't know what you're doing, then you will lose all your money


imo....

Thank you for your responses, What do you comment about the High previous sales of IDN domains ?]
what do you have to comment on those sales?

and why are fixated with previous high sales of idn's , rather than with quality domains in general?

if you don't know about idn's then you won't comprehend why they sold, for the amounts they sold for.


imo…..

Nearly all "high" IDN sales were made to Germans and AFAIK there has not been a single one for years.
