Appraisal: Arabic domain names (عربي)

Discussion in 'Appraisals' started by BurnsInternet, Aug 25, 2007.

    The Arab world consists of twenty-two countries stretching from Mauritania in the west to Oman in the east. They have a combined population of 323 million people and their combined economies surpass 1.6 trillion U.S. dollars, and grows 5% annually.

    Arabic domain names are growing in popularity. It is too early to expect great profits from these domains, but Google just recently released ads in Arabic. The relative wealth of these countries and the drive to build internet infrastructure make these domains, in my view, a long-term investment.

    Any comments would be appreciated. No one commented on my Hebrew domains, so I don't expect much interest in these. However, I hope someone has some insight to share. Arabic domain name and literal translation are included below:


    علاقات.com relationships

    الحرارة.com the heat, the temperature

    مصفاة.com refinery

    ديزل.com diesel

    المملكة۔العربية۔السعودية.com The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia

    سلطنة۔عمان.com The Sultanate of Oman

    النفطي.com "of oil" or "having to do with oil" (masculine adjective)

    النفطية.com "of oil" or "having to do with oil" (feminine adjective)

    زيت.com Generic "oil"; usually "olive oil" or "motor oil", but not necessarily "crude oil" or النفط

    زيت.net Generic "oil"; usually "olive oil" or "motor oil", but not necessarily "crude oil" or النفط

    العربي.tv Arabic/Arab
    SEMrush
    فيديو.tv video

    بنات.tv girls

    Thanks, Mido!

    I have had them registered for a long time. They get type-in traffic now. Yes, علاقات.com (relationships dot com) and العسل.com (honey dot com) are my favorites.

    ICANN is testing the use of Arabic TLD now to allow the whole URL to be in Arabic. http://www.circleid.com/posts/782810_icann_tests_idn_tld_live/

    I assumed you would have tennis dot com in Arabic?

    FYI - http://www.نطاق.com/ has a list of recent Arabic domain name sales. If you cannot see the arabic language in your IE7 browser, add Arabic to your list of preferred languages or it will look like this: http://www.xn--mgb5a8an.com/

    Including:

    domain نطاق price سعر translation ترجمة

    افلام.com 420,000$ movies.com
    ابراج.com 170,000$ horoscopes.com
    الاخبار.com 175,800$ thenews.com

    Me, too. But I find that few people share that love. It is the generic term for oil. I think it was a really lucky reg. I passed it by for weeks, but finally took the chance. If I only had 'sugar dot com' in Arabic to go with 'honey', I could die happy.
