Arabic Help Please

Hi, I have reg'd a few terms that I believe to be OK, but perhaps not the top term used. Could an Arabic speaker please have a look and help me out? Thanks!

مصارعه.com - Wrestling
660 OVT
511,000 Google
Google Trends

لجريدة.com - The Newspaper
2,020,000 Google
Google Trends

العراقي.net - Iraqi
64 OVT
15,200,000 Google
Google Trends

مصريه.com - Egyptian
129 OVT
1,970,000 Google
Google Trends

الأنترنت.net - Internet (I ended up getting the .net of Mulligan's .com)
47 OVT
5,530,000 Google
Google Trends

Re: Arabic Help Please

Alright, let's see what we have here... I'm only going to comment on the accuracy of the spelling. Not commenting on value, etc. as I do not know enough... I just happen to be a native speaker of Arabic.

Though it is frequently spelled this way, the proper spelling would be مصارعة (with two dots over the last letter).

This is actual "for newspaper". You need one more letter to make it "the newspaper" - الجريدة

This appears to be correct

Just like wrestling, the last letter is missing two dots above it, but is frequently spelled this way (people get lazy and drop the dots). Should be مصرية

Frequently spelled as such, but should ideally be spelled as الإنترنت. What you have really reads "the Anternet" not the "Internet".

I hope this helps!

These are the trends for "wrestling", "the wrestling", and your typo. Your typo has the lowest trends, my domain "the wrestling" is in the middle, and "wrestling" is up on top. Judging by the trends, I'd say it's a keeper, even though it is a typo.

The good thing about arabic is that there's more than 20 countries to satisfy with one language :-)

Re: Arabic Help Please

Thanks Jackson, I got the ide for the wrestling domain from seeing the "other" version of it (the one neither you nor I own) up for sale at DNF...


Oh, and thanks for hijacking my thread, Jose. :p
(j/k, it's all good)
