I regged 10. But with one of them, جيريمي نورثكوت, they won't let me add nameservers, so it's a lame duck. It's now officially an unregistered name even though it's sitting in my account. No cigar for guessing why.

+1

Arabic is a language where the location filter really helps when using GKT and Trends. I almost regged a term that had 100k exact searches, but less than a thousand from within Egypt.

Re: Dot.egypt(IDN) open public registrations

What would you guys consider to be a decent number for exact search matches within Egypt ?? I found some pretty decent names that I think are correct, but the exact match for within Egypt is only in the hundreds !!

I've noticed that quite a few that have been registered actually have very low exact matches with Google. For example, اونلاين ( online ) is registered but only has an exact match result of 170 !!

By the way - I registered 6 domains, but might have another look if there are any others I think are worth registering.

Re: Dot.egypt(IDN) open public registrations

Checking location filter is very important as different spellings are sometines used in different countries. Example the word "club" (last letter is slightly different):
- in Egypt: نادى
- in Saudi Arabia: نادي
and you can see it in Trends.

I use both the "Competition" filter and the exact search match. For egypt I look for 50k and more.

Re: Dot.egypt(IDN) open public registrations

Found this in a lot of WHIOS records. Does it mean they are held by the registry, or is this the name of a private registerer:

Local Name: أرباحك للإستضافة
Google Translate: Earnings for the Host

???

An Egyptian native could probably explain this better but from a domaining perspective I'd call it a mistake just based on the numbers. From a developer's perspective it may be different.

I took these four with development in mind:
الافلام
موبايلات
دردشة
صحف
Any opinions would be appreciated.

Re: Dot.egypt(IDN) open public registrations

I ran about 12 searches for really good to the best terms and only two were taken by link. I regged one, fly.egypt

طيران.مصر

Lots available i think but i feel it wont be for long.

Again curious how we can find out how many have been regged and if they plan a advertising campaign?

Mine are resolving properly.
I noticed in the one in your signature that there is a space between the name and the dot:
- it should be تأمين.مصر
and I see a space between the name and the dot (even in the URL bar)

PS: i entered the punycode in the URL, and I still see this small space

Re: Dot.egypt(IDN) open public registrations

Some information regarding the dot.egypt(IDN):

- if you have registered a name that ends with "ى" you get automatically the version of the same name which ends with "ي" (and vice versa). It's also automatically activated and resolves to same site.

- if you have registered a name with numbers it also automatically registers the name with the arabic number (1,2,3,... and١,٢,٣,...).

- in 2 days about 1'000 names were registered.
