Question A couple of questions from a newbie...

Perhaps these are silly questions, but I have to find out somehow...

1) Can I register .ru or .ua IDNs? If so, where? (.ru = Russia country code, .ua = Ukraine country code)

2) How can I find out the OVT score for Russian and Arabic keywords?

3) Can I registered .biz IDNs using cyrillics or Arabic?

Many thanks in advance!

Mahdi

2) How can I find out the OVT score for Russian and Arabic keywords?

Russian:
http://wordstat.yandex.ru/advq?rpt=ppc&shw=1

For Arabic you can use US overture- most are less than 100, many 100-300. If you get any score it might be a good term.
Some really good terms can go over 5,000 US ovt but they are rare.

Also check words on google.com/trends to see if it registers at all, and also you can compare words and terms to each other.
Note: google trends is NOT always right...ask a native speaker.

Also, you can register idns you are not sure at dynadot, then put up for appraisal, after that you have about 3-4 days
to "cancel" them if they are not good ones.

I am a native speaker of both Russian and Arabic, so that won't be a problem. In fact, if anyone needs assistance with either language - just let me know.
