Arabic Names, worth regging or not?

I was wondering if decent English dictionary words that translate to Arabic in the .com that has some Google Trends but only about 200k Google results are worth regging or not? I've found a few but am a bit unsure due to the lack of Google results, or is that normal with Arabic names?

Try checking US ovt for Arabics as well. If they get any OVT, plus have google trends and have good google images,
they may be worth keeping. Check with some of the native speakers here to be sure. Depending on the niche,
many very good Arabic names have less than 200k results now, but that will change dramatically in the coming years.

Re: Arabic Names, worth regging or not?

Thanks for your reply. What type of Google results are decent for Arabic names? Are they all usually that low or do you find many in the millions as well?

There are lots in the millions. And many in the 10+ million. I remember a few in the 100 million serp.
Here are some popular words, no guarantee on translation. Remember to always check with "quotes" around the term.
"قطط" students...6 million serp.
"أخبار" news... 18 million serp
"خريطة" map...5 million serp

"صداع " headache...295,000 (but perhaps still a good idn even at that serp)
"أنمي" anime... 495,000

Any language* should be worth registering if you can find good enough terms.

I'll probably just reg with Dynadot then.

Got a question about Dynadot, I've never regged with them before. I remember reading somewhere if you prefund your account with $500 or something like that they discount the reg fee from $8.99 to something like $6.99, is that correct?

Prices went up .. it's $7.50 for .com ... $5.75 for .net .. still quite competive though considering they dont charge a 'restocking fee' like most other registrars.
(Be aware though that it's an account credit if you delete it .. doesn't get paid back to your CC or paypal)

I only wish they would have 6.99 for .com like Domainsite.

Also I don't get why all those NP dummies go after complex coupon codes to get the same price at GoDaddy, lol.

Exactly. That's why I head over to Name.com for $5.99 or use the 10% off coupon for $5.39
