Domain names sales have been weighted towardsrepparttar 108266 North American and European markets, but I predict that sales of domains outside this market will berepparttar 108267 driver inrepparttar 108268 longer term, particularly as Eastern Europe andrepparttar 108269 far eastern markets recover. India and China are certain to grow strongly inrepparttar 108270 not too distant future.

The introduction ofrepparttar 108271 new .eurepparttar 108272 domain name forrepparttar 108273 European Union will also be very interesting, as this is likely to giverepparttar 108274 European domain market a boost.
