Hebrew - ביתר-עילית.com | Beitar Illit

Hi again guys

Been looking at Hebrew domains today, and I registered the following ....

ביתר-עילית.com (xn----1hcybar4b7brg.com)

I believe it means "Beitar Illit" - one of the fastest growing cities in Israel.

"Beitar Illit is a fast-growing settlement, with a higher birthrate than any other habitation in the West Bank or Israel. At the end of 2007, it had a total population of 32,200. According to former mayor Yitzchak Pindrus, the population is expected to reach 100,000 by 2020, based on population growth and the building of new apartments to attract more Haredim from older Haredi cities such as Bnei Brak and parts of Jerusalem."

Wiki Page - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Betar_Illit

I have very little experience with Hebrew domains, so I have no idea ig the hyphen is acceptable or not. From some other two word Hebrew GEO domains, the hyphenated version in most of them had been registered.

The unhyphened version of this domain has been registered since 2001.

If I can get any feedback on this at all, it would really be appreciated.

Thanks

Alex

Re: Hebrew - ביתר-עילית.com | Beitar Illit

Hi Alex,

Word is correct. In general people don't use the hyphen in Israel. Sometimes you will see it. For SEO purposes it might be good. Regarding that specific city you chose. Well, you would have to work hard to make a sale. You might be able to build a website around it but its still got a way to go.

Just my 2 cents.

Regards,

Abe

Thanks very much for the reply Abe - its most appreciated.

As mentioned, I have zero experience of Hebrew domains, so I will definately keep in mind what you said about the hyphens in the future.

Thanks

Alex
