Re: Arabic Domains Evaluation Help

It would probably be better if you can put the translation of the domains ( if you know or have an idea about them ). That way, some of the native Arabic speakers here can confirm the domains for you.

Re: Arabic Domains Evaluation Help

I don't know on what bases you wanna evaluate them .But,I'll tell you what i think regarding the meaning of the word in Arabic not taking in consideration being the best for its meaning,"hyphens" or "Hamza" ...

Re: Arabic Domains Evaluation Help

Thanks for your replies guys.

Alexd: I'm Arabian so I know what they mean :D Thanks for your support, appreciated.

bwhh: Thanks for your welcoming.

Man: I just would like to get an estimation of how much they can bring if they are sold out or just to know if it's not worth wasting my time on them.

The problem with Arabic is that it's difficult to translate. For example, كورة-اون-لاين.com

It's On-line-football or Football-on-line. If you write online in 1 word in Arabic it would be like this : اونلاين in which a term is not used in Arabic so you have to separate it with dash.

For تجارة-الكترونية.net, if you translate it in same order then it would be commerce-electronic (commerce-e). In English it's electronic commerce but in Arabic if you're going to say the term you will say تجارة-الكترونية = commerce electronic not الكترونية-تجارة = electronic commerce.

Regard "hyphens" or "Hamza" which is ا or أ or إ I've seen all people talking about it. I'm arabian and I've seen how people engage in conversations and chatting, most Arab people use ا in their typing as to use "hyphens" or "Hamza" = أ you have to press shift then hit the ا key and that's why most people just type it without Hamza. So in terms of search, domains names without hyphens will be better.

Try to write تجارة الكترونية in Google and see results. You will find that there are 2 results 1st wikipedia تجارة الكترونية and 2nd wikipedia تجارة إلكترونية this time with Hamza. The first one without Hamza is translated to E-Commerce and the second one with Hamza is translated to E-Business.

Thanks again for your replies, appreciated

Right now....not very much. We are still in the incubation period for most extensions, the only IDNs that is are really doing well are German.com and .de and super premium keywords and geos/ city names in major languages ie. Chinese, Russian, and Japanese.

For these Arabics, why not develop the better ones and in 3 - 5 years you should be a very happy guy.

Re: Arabic Domains Evaluation Help

Of course, that's why I'm here, to hear other people's opinion and point of view.

It looks that it beneficial only on the long term. I'm not sure I can hold on for 3 to 5 years. However, will see how it goes. Worst case scenario is losing a few bucks but on other hand will learn something, so I won't consider it a loss

Thanks for support.

That's just a guess....might be longer, hopefully less. Once the publicity of idn.idn cctlds and gtlds kicks in and they sort out the issues with idn email you should be sitting nicely. In the meantime, perhaps create a strategy to sell enough names each year to cover the cost of renewals on the others.
