Re: Calcutta and Hyderabad in Hindi

While these are both huge cities in India, I feel that you really should point out that Hindi is not the language of either of the Indian states where these cities are located. I can see how people unfamiliar with India could easily be confused otherwise.

Hyderabad is in Andhra Pradesh, where Telugu is the official language.

Kolkata is in in West Bengal, where Bengali is the official language.


Hindi is at best a minority language in both of these cities and states.

Re: Calcutta and Hyderabad in Hindi

But remember Hindi is the official language of India. With nearly half of the population able to speak it. And also Hindi is very large for Indian emmigrants overseas..

I don't think it is so important that Hindi is not the main languages of the cities. These are major cities in India, where Hindi is the main langauge out of many..

Nice domains good luck with the sale.

Re: Calcutta and Hyderabad in Hindi

Hi Jacksonm

Theres definitely a sliding scale of value here with top value going to the city name in the local language, closely followed by the city name in Hindi and ASCii.

Kolkota.net
xn--11ba9byc3cb0g.net (Kolkota in Hindi)
xn--p5ba9byc3cb.net (Kolkota in Bengali)

All nice names

Re: Calcutta and Hyderabad in Hindi

The big question is whether Associated Cities would include IDN in their up coming Auctions, and whether it would be worth anyone's while to get involved?

Re: Calcutta and Hyderabad in Hindi

I'm submitting some Indian cities in ASCii and may as well email some cities in IDN also.

Rules from http://www.associatedcities.com/news.php?newsID=128 :
Quote:
Submitters should notify Moniker if any keywords in the domain represent foreign languages.

A submission will not be accepted if it is a .com domain containing more than four words, a .net, .org, .biz or .info domain containing more than three words or a .mobi or country code that has more than two words. Submissions that are misspelled (unless they are single name domains) or trademarked will also not be accepted.

Re: Calcutta and Hyderabad in Hindi

I might have been interested but it is now very short notice, as I will be away from Saturday. I think there is deadline for 17th Sept, if I remember rightly.

Besides, I am in no mood to be bollocksed about like we were with TRAFFICS.

Re: Calcutta and Hyderabad in Hindi

Sounds like they're open to cityrealestate.com or cityhotels.com etc. if real estate and hotels are in the local language.

No mention of IDNs in those rules.
