g,

It may just be my computer, but the encoding on the blog may be incorrect, as it is not coming out as Arabic, but as gibberish symbols...

To cover this if I use the tag:

<meta http-equiv='Content-Type' content='text/html;charset=uft-8'>

Will this tag ensure all/most? languages will display correctly?

I'm pretty sure that will do it, however, on my site I was having problems with words with accents and umlauts (i.e. satellitetélévision.com, urlaubtürkei.com). They weren't re-encoding correctly. But if you go to http://pinyin.info/tools/converter/c...ninumbers.html, this is a tool to convert words to Unicode, so they will show up correctly..., just cut and paste the Unicode. I only had to do this with French, German, Portuguese, Spanish, etc. Not Cryllic or script languages.

This is a very bad move. Since Olney is against syndication of RSS feeds, this means that your blog is now inaccessible.

For big amts, e.g. $xxxx, you can use escrow.com which does wire transfer. For small amts, you can ask someone on this forum to help you receive using paypal, and then use the money for topping up the credit for a DS account, etc.

You won't imagine how horrible is the net business without paypal unless you lose it .

it is not only buying and selling idns but even when you think of development

adsense is using paypal and the customers want only paypal

also wire transfer cost a lot especially to international banks

I discussed that in detail in the article but it seems paypal is not only the biggest problem faces idners but also many technical errors related to unicode.

I cann't think of arabic website that earns alot of money

yes many arabic websites are popular but how much they earn online

and why they are not earning much from arabic customers

all ways leads to paypal at the end

I am still waiting for juicy offer for my IDNs that worth the wire transfer

sorry, I don't understand

my blog is accessible but unreadable due to unicode errors right?

Hi abdussamad,

How do you sell your domains if you are not going to develop them? and how do you receives the money especially if you are selling names for 50$ or so?

there are at least 1200 arabic user agrees with me
http://www.swalif.net/softs/showthread.php?t=169082

this petition and comments shows you how many arab users need paypal

by the way I am not a member of swalif and I didn't do the petition.

Regards

Re: paypal is the biggest obstacle faces arabic idners

I do not ,and will not, use paypal.

I solld in excess of 800 domain names last year, the majority through escrow.com

Smaller amounts, I get "buyer"to credit one of the registrar(s) I use.

Always need money for new regs or particularly renewals.

Hi Wot,

The article I wrote says that money transfer to international banks is much expensive comparing to transfer to american banks which is sometimes free.

the arabic domainer has to wait for x,xxx$ offer to worth the costs and fees

I hope sawafi can do something about that because it will be a big arabic search engine who is going to sell ads to arab mainly.

Hi,

Escrow.com will also send a check/cheque - foc , usually arrives one week after completion of transaction.

I have a good relationship with a couple of banks here in Thailand and they give me credit pending clearance.

Try some of yours?
