I have observed some books and find that these books start the page number counter in the titlepage (some even do this from the cover) but don't display the page number in the titlepage, also the verso of it. The structure of the document is as follows:
% we assume that page numbers are doublesided. \starttext \startfrontmatter \startstandardmakeup ... % titlepage \stopstandardmakeup \stopfrontmatter \stoptext
how to do this in ConTeXt?
