โปรแกรม.net - Thai
 
I believe it means program(s) and is mainly used for software.

Any thoughts from the native speakers?

Yep. For programmers .....

Not sure I'd be getting into .nets of this sort of non-searched name, but there ya go.

Why does it have more Google results and a better trend than "ซอฟต์แวร์"? :confused:

Because in Thai we use the word โปรแกรม (program) to describe different types of software as opposed to using the translit of software (ซอฟต์แวร์) itself. For instance, we would translate the term "accounting software" as โปรแกรมบัญชี (program Bunchee) . You could also say ซอฟต์แวร์บัญชี (Software Bunchee) but it is not as popularly used. Hence the reason for your google trend result

So โปรแกรม.net is a good domain?

โปรแกรม (program) - 49,500 EXACT Google searches
ซอฟต์แวร์ (software) - 12,100 EXACT Google searches

The search stats support what the native speakers are saying. The term you're asking about "โปรแกรม.net" is the more popular of the two.

It is reasonably a decent term but you have to decide whether you are comfortable with the .net extension though. In general, Thais are much more fond of the .com extension comparatively.

Cheers!
