Thai help - Thanks!

I get the impression this is Surat thani (province), but I have some reservations.
สุราษฏร์ธานี.com xn--g3csd1bb8af9de5ay9v.com

Can somebody confirm the translation?

Thanks, much appreciated.

Re: Thai help - Thanks!

I have this version.....
สุราษฎร์ธานี.com , xn--f3cud1bb8af9de5ay9v.com

Translation from:
http://thai2english.com/dictionary/Surat%20Thani.html

Visually I can't tell the difference, but they do have different punycode. This one get 5.2 million serp, vs. 1.8 million serp for yours but both reference Surat Thani articles etc. Guess DG or Traffic Domainer will have to chime in.

Thanks Bill, yes, it looks the same to me but as you said, punycode different.

I see .net is taken for my version but not yours, but your version is the one in wikipedia.

Arg!

Re: Thai help - Thanks!

No Wot, Bill's version is not the translit, it is a typo, although not too bad of a typo as it gets about 5% of the correct version. Both versions visually look the same but when you magnify them, you get:

สุราษฎร์ธานี
สุราษฏร์ธานี


Also, if you look at the officicial site of the Province of Surathani, they use the first version owened by dnnames.

Re: Thai help - Thanks!

Just to be clear, the difference in the punycodes is because the correct version uses

"ฎ" and not "ฏ"

Also if you check google adwords tools:you get 22,200 exact monthly searches for the dnnames's version and 1,300 for Bill's.

Good pick up then DNames!

I can speak a lot of Thai and understand a lot of the spoken word but the writing just looks like squiggles to me, can't see it ever catching on. :D

Re: Thai help - Thanks!

Thanks so much TrafficDomainer. Really appreciate the input and the clear explanation. The difference is so miniscule it baffled me for quite a while, staring at the two terms thinking they must be different but didn't seem different...

Edit: Traffic Domainer can you confirm mine is correct? From what you said I think you mean Bill's one is correct.

Re: Thai help - Thanks!

Sorry, I got mixed up who owns which version. The explanation still stands, ie the correct spelling and most serached version is :

สุราษฎร์ธานี

Looks like Bill owns this version

Interesting...I see the slight differences in the letters now. Maybe worth keeping the typo version anyway...maybe the 'net' guy will want to buy the com.

Re: Thai help - Thanks!

DNNames- I think that is a good decision. If you visit สุราษฏร์ธานี.net, which is a developed site, you will see that they use the correct version of สุราษฎร์ธานี within their content. Not sure, why the owner registered the wrong version. My guess is that the domain was registered by a non-Thai and he got someone to write up the content in Thai resulting in the correct version being used within the content but incorrectly registered as the domain.

Bill - I hope you don't mind, I have since registered the .net version of your domain.

Re: Thai help - Thanks!

Wow how interesting. I know who this is that has the site and, believe it or not this is no farang, he is Thai and is building quite a network of sites! I'm sure it was either a late-night keyboard accident, or he really doesn't know the correct spelling. Pretty damned confusing that one :D

I'm also sure he's gonna regret not getting the one you just regged @TrafficDomainer! But it's nice to see you get rewarded for helping out people like you did on this thread. Awesome!
