That is the primary term I believe, .com taken in 2000'.
Was a pretty good buy for whoever grabbed it, I did not recognize the name.

I quit buying arabics myself, as I already have too many names that don't sustain themselves. I'm happy with my portfolio of around 60 names :-)

Re: السيارات.net sells for $325 on Snapnames

It was me

It was registred with NameDrive and I had to make it "examine", so the previous owner was a domainer for sure, maybe someone of us ? Can't understand why anyone would let drop this, renewal accident ? It would have sold here. And even if it doesn't get traffic (which I'm pretty sure about), it's still Cars.Net...

If a native sees this I'd be happy to know the exact difference with السيارة ! Is this one Car and mine Cars like Google translate suggests ?

Thinking of developing it in a videoblog for the moment.

Nice catch, good price. Congrats.

I would think that these are the type of names that souk.com would eventually want to have redirecting to their site.

Re: السيارات.net sells on Snapnames

Thanks Ross !

You mean Souq

I don't know, I just don't understand the benefit of redirecting generics. Just for traffic is a waste, everybody can buy (relatively) cheap traffic on Adwords if you're smart enough. And of course build organic traffic and backlinks. Developing generics is far more valuable according to me, especially for businesses in the area.

I had sworn not to ever develop any .net, because some people estimate you loose around 10% to the .com, and if the .com decides to develop, he can eat you. However .net has some recognition in arabic countries and I just couldn't resist to this one...:p
