The dot Asia (.asia) landrush is underway. Those of you who did not acquire your trademark names and keywords can now join the masses and pick up your domains. Look for an accredited registrar here:


The only restrictions I see on these domains is that one of your registration contacts must reside in the Asia/Pacific region.

I've got my .asia domains. What about you?

dailypress - I'm a bit confused, your second link shows the same list as my original link however I see yours was through a different URL.

Considering for those I appear to be successful I shall only be bidding on three names and if they get anywhere near USD 100.00 I'll not even bother going any further!

You're right. Sorry.

Anyway I noticed posting the same two links in my previous thread.

Heres the correction.

Anyone heard anything about the auction yet? They're leaving it a bit late for those wanting to bid.

Any idea/updates on the auctions. I have two out of three domain with more than one applications. I did some search and I couldnt locate any link where I can apply for an aution either at pool dot com or at my registrar. Seems there is very limited info at the moment?

IF you have the link for the auctions, can someone sticky it or put it up here for all. Cheers

According to Pool:

To be qualified to participate in .ASIA domain auctions, you must first submit a domain application through a .ASIA accredited registrar. After this application has been accepted, DotAsia.Pool.com will provide a direct login for domain applicants to access online auctions and place bids.Landrush is scheduled to start on February 20, 2008 and end on March 12, 2008.


Do I am assume (is this a dangerous assumption?) that Pool will notify us during the next few days of our logon details?

This is very, very messy, I am not at all impressed.

Just noticed this on the dotasia.org site:

.ASIA LandRUSH Auctions
Coming Soon!
(LandRush Auctions have not yet started)

We're not even scheduled yet is my bet!

I feel like the auctions are not going to go very high by looking at some of the other auctions. Just hope some of the guys over here wouldnt be competing against me...lol

No chance so far as the names I "was" after since the ones I have supposedly secured i.e the ones without duplicate applications, all revolve around the same niche, trade terms.

I was very surprised that some of these have not had multiple applications and especially so for one name which has been trademark defended in all extensions...hmmm...and it is a huge, worldwide, household name company!

I've just received notification of my successful applications, now to wait for what is happening with the auctions.

Its Tuesday and I just got my confirmation for one of my domains. It seems like they are doing it manually. My confirmation is amost 72 hours after the confirmation email sent to HuskyPup.

Thanks for all your help HP.

It looks as though we're getting some movement at long last! I've received the official e-mails regarding the auction plus news today:
