One of my .asia domain applications has been accepted. It is a two-word domain and nothing too special. No word on all of the other domains I applied for. The landrush period is over in two days.

I checked back on the dot asia website and can see one domain I put an application for is up for auction.

I thought the process was for them to notify me if someone else also applied for the domain name and then we would enter an auction. I don’t even know how I can bid for the name.

The whole process seems completely random. You can bet the people who get the best names will make some good money from this.

Anyone else have applications accepted?

Update: Seems like I wasn’t the only one disappointed by the whole .asia process. Checking through the list which had multiple applications I think I did pretty well just getting the domain I did.

Namepros has a good thread on .asia
