Answers to All your Questions

Hi all this is my first Post and i hope this will be a useful one.

These answers are based on stats from many different sides of the Net.



To Sell or Not to Sell?


If you put it in simple terms, there are 3 categories to Arabic Domains.

-High (Simple, everyday words, popular words)
-Medium (5-10 letter words, used almost every day, popular generics)
-Low (long words, once or twice spoken weekly)


I recommend Selling in these conditions:

- need quick money and your domains fall in high or medium
- prepared to use this money in other investments
- A newbie in the Net world and want to get out ASAP.

I recommend Building a mature site in these conditions

- You have tons of knowledge as a webmaster
- prepared to spend money on establishing a stable site with content worth to pay for
- Your domains mostly fall in the Low category.





When is the Best time to sell your Domain?


If you are selling your domains, I recommend that you hold on to them until the last quarter of 2007, or the beginning of 2008, as we all know IE7 has just been released, it will take 60 days for Microsoft to start sending it by automatic Update, so by the middle of 2007 we will see 50/50 share between IE6 and IE7, the big increase of hits to your domain site will be when everyone knows that IE7 is actually able to send the user to an Arabic domain name, and this will mostly happen by regular media, such as Technology TV Programs in your area, as I have received notes from such programs regarding the subject, they are all welling to dedicated episodes for this "Trick" using IE7 as they call it.

So by the end of 2007 every investor would want to buy an Arabic domain, but be careful not to over jump the chance, because it happened before in the English Domain names, after sometime, people will start knowing the big sites by their content not their simple names, so the investors will start spending money on developing a good site, not a site with a 3 letterword.


What kind of traffic will I expect?

Based on the assumptions on the categories above.

High (will have 50,000- 100,000 hits daily)
Medium (20,000 - 60,000)
Low (50 - 1000)

Please remember that these categories are general and they are based on a collection of English domain names reduced to the Arabic User Population on the internet, also remember that these collections of domain have +-10% Error margin.



Some Quick News:


I have contacted ALEXA.com team, the Top Ranking Engine on the net, and they have informed me that Arabic Domain Names will be included in there system by the end of the year, so when that happens i will reevaluate the stats, and repost and update on the Questions and answers above.



I hope this information is helpful for all of you, good luck to you all.
