Article from the American Chambers of Commerce Egypt

IDNF recieved a shoutout thanks to RD in an article posted on the American chambers of Commerce in Eqypt.

Small quote from the article..
One reason is the lower level of traffic Arabic IDNs attract, though this could soon change. “Once Internet Explorer 7.0 is released later this year, more people will have the capability to enter IDNs in their browsers and the revenue from parked sites will start increasing dramatically,” says David Wrixon, one of the world’s biggest international domain name speculators, whose London-based company, Chinese Domains Ltd., owns 4,000 IDNs including 500 Arabic-language domain names.

Wrixon explains that speculators target domain names with high advertising or resale potential. “People who speculate on domain names look for general terms that will drive up search results, or that future content-driven sites will want to purchase,” he says. Already, Wrixon’s portfolio includes the .com and .net addresses of 24 of the 28 letters of the Arabic alphabet, as well as the Arabic numerals 1-10 and many common Arabic words. “Short, easily rememberable domain names like these are brandable,” he explains. “They’re easy to remember and type in, and can be applicable to any industry or product.”
