알코올.COM (ALCOHOL.COM, KOREAN IDN)

Hey folks, new here (but not new, new). Anyone want to take a guess what I can get for this?

Re: 알코올.COM (ALCOHOL.COM, KOREAN IDN)

Given that alcohol is a one character Chinese word, I would think the Korean would be one character as well. Making this, probably, a lesser used variant or a native Korean word or the transliteration of the English word.

Edit: A bit of research reveals I was correct. 알코올 means alcohol in the technical sense. Not the kind used for drinking.

Edit: should be one character Chinese.

I think you mean sul, which is one character in hangul, two in hanja.

Two in hanja? 酒 (주)?

Re: 알코올.COM (ALCOHOL.COM, KOREAN IDN)

no, two alternates for the same thing in chinese. i am 1/2 korean, my gf is korean -- she said it's funny i have "alcohol" when it's 50% treatment, and 50% referring to an alcohol company. she also said, the casual drink would be sul (what you posted).

Re: 알코올.COM (ALCOHOL.COM, KOREAN IDN)

She's right. What you have is the technical term for alcohol as a chemical compound.

yah, but that evaluation isn't 100% as you have two things to factor, korean-americans using google.com and not in korea, and then koreans generally use naver.com not google.co.kr...

Re: 알코올.COM (ALCOHOL.COM, KOREAN IDN)

it's the compound, reference to alcoholism, or a company that makes alcohol. you wouldn't say the sul company, you'd say alco-ol (korean way) com-pan-ee.

Re: 알코올.COM (ALCOHOL.COM, KOREAN IDN)

That's fine, but even without the statistics, just out of language knowledge, you would recognize that this is not the word if you want to build a website selling 소주 (燒酒).

However, people looking to buy don't search for companies, people search for products.
Example: when you want to buy "wine", you don't seach for "vineyard".

Of course, some company may want the domain for good money. But most domainers are looking at it the way I described above.

Whenever you have a domain, you have to imagine what kind of product can be sold on it. If this is clear, you have a good domain.

By the same reasoning, if there are products to sell, you will have advertisements if you park or develop the domain.

If the keyword that is in your domain is also popular, then you have a winner.

Re: 알코올.COM (ALCOHOL.COM, KOREAN IDN)

i was aiming for more of a generic like a korean bevmo, and honestly trying to avoid a potential lawsuit from a trademark/copyright violation. sul may be more popular on google, but it's not as formal, thus the pros/cons between either/or. are you korean?
