You are indeed ill-informed, jose. São Tomé and Príncipe is the exonym, while São Tomé "e" Príncipe is the endonym. Go figure it out before you give your take in future.

For example, Germany is an exonym, while Deutschland is an endonym for the same place. China is an exonym, while 中国 is an endonym.

Others, you know what i mean.

Yes, I understand what you mean, but of course there are often more than one exonyms.

Still not worth very much in my book.

I dont care about any xoxonym or whatever that is called. Big countries don't compare to small ones. What I do know is that I am native Portuguese and they speak Portuguese in São Tomé e Príncipe. Sonds real strange with the "and" in between. That was what I was taking about, as BECAUSE this was not an auction thread I felt I could post this here. That's all there is to it.

Oh, the AND is definitely used if you search Google, but most results including the BBC drop the accents. It would seem that EXONYM is an ASCII.

Re: São Tomé and Príncipe .com

Then I have the "endonym" - sãotoméepríncipe.com

Always fun to learn new words (endonym and exonym) but please remain polite and friendly - we're all rowing the same boat.

Re: São Tomé and Príncipe .com

I'm trying to get the name before but I'm afraid of the trademark infringements to registered any country name domains

I am cool. I just like to say what I feel. I am free to do so, no?
Sorry, (I mean it) if I offended someone.

You have still choosen to ignore the fact that most of the Google Results you refer to using the AND do not use the ACCENTS. That is because English speakers generally do not have these available on the their keyboards. Most people, me included, would not type it in using the accents in a million years.

No, no i'm not trying to force anything, or that it is aways the form "typed in".

Just that i'm correcting the fact for dear jose is that the "AND" is indeed used with/without accents. He seems to think that only using "e" is absolute correct. Check the Atlas near you. Of course you are entitled to free speech.

In fact, only for countries São Tomé and Príncipe and Réunion are accents commonly used for english speakers.

Re: São Tomé and Príncipe .com

Just checking the second character is only available on a portuguese or vietnamese keyboard, and I suspect that the latter will have a separate Unicoding. As portguese speakers would almost certainly never use AND, that would seem to limit the market a good deal.

I agree. But the market is secondary for me. Just that i've proven my point that the actual name exists. That in itself, is well-satisfactory.

Re: São Tomé and Príncipe .com

Seems to be used in this fashion according to Google searches.
And only a $7.99 investment for a year to see if you get traffic or interested buyer over the next 12 months.

Google: Results 28,500,000 for "São Tomé and Príncipe".

Yes, but most of the results are with the accents dropped and when Google gets its act together, which it will one day, these two sets of results will be reported separately.

Have they leaked any news on starting something like that yet? What's the 'near' possibility of it happening?

No they have not, but as the whole point of search is to find what you are looking for, then it seems inevitable that they will. Search result that include mixed bags from various different languages simply because the algorythms do not differentiate between accented and non-accented forms is simply a throw back to when the Search Engine was first developed.

The advent of this will be forced to the top of the Agenda by all those clowns registering English words with random and pointless accenting, to take advantage of a big gapping whole in Google's Search filters. The only answer is to treat each accented form as an entirely different character and then display appropriate results. Google will do this because their credibility and integrity will demand it.
