    The World is not just America or UK and although the trend for most foreign companies since the dawn of the internet and domains was to adopt the popular western English alphabet and grammar and words in their domains I'm sure there are developed domains that use the English alphabet to spell their foreign domains.

    For example, lately I've been looking into French language domains and in .com. In particular I've looked into "Enligne" domains because of the sales below.


    En Ligne in French is Online.

    parierenligne.fr 39,000 USD 2009-02-05 Sedo
    pokerenligne.com 28,350 USD 2020-01-16 DropCatch
    banqueenligne.com 12,104 USD 2011-11-30 Sedo
    banqueenligne.com 6,789 USD 2011-01-21 Sedo
    joueraupokerenligne.fr 6,750 USD 2009-03-31 Sedo
    petitionenligne.fr 5,500 USD 2019-02-11 Sedo
    marcheenligne.com 4,888 USD 2020-07-21 Sedo
    jeuxenligne.net 4,470 USD 2011-05-11 Sedo
    banqueenligne.net 4,001 USD 2012-03-29 Sedo
    banqueenligne.net 3,960 USD 2012-04-11 Sedo

    and "Avendre" (For sale in French)

    avendre.ca 7,500 USD 2011-03-02 Private
    commerceavendre.com 3,500 USD 2017-09-11 Sedo
    terrainsavendre.fr 2,025 USD 2011-02-23 Sedo
    maisonavendre.net 1,995 USD 2011-06-29 Afternic
    avendre.net 1,400 USD 2009-08-05 Afternic
    avendrepascher.com 500 USD 2008-01-10 Afternic
    appartementavendre.com 227 USD 2015-07-21 GoDaddy
    domainesavendre.com 136 USD 2007-12-05 Sedo

    If you find it difficult to find real gems in .com for english word domains why not give some foreign word domain names a shot?

    Many probably had this idea years ago so let's see what FOREIGN domain names you've got? Here's your chance to showcase them.

    DO NOT:

    1. submit domains that contain special characters on top of letters which will make them IDN's.
    2. submit english word domains.

    I will allow combos like English word + Foreign word domains
    or
    Foreign word + English word domains

    This ought to be interesting.

    Here's my recent reg.

    GratuitEnligne.com (French for Free Online) 24,700,000 results in quotes "Gratuit Enligne"
    BateauEnligne.com (French for "Boat Online)
    BateauxEnligne.com (French for "Boats Online)


    Why French?

    Population 65,273,511 people.


    You don't have to submit just French domains there's a ton of other countries in the world with their own language.

    So what's yours? Italian? German?Israel? Arabic? Chinese/Pinyin?Korean? Filipino?Swahili?

    The possibilities are ENDLESS.

    I still hold hundreds of Spanish domains but the sales ratio and average sales price is clearly lower than the comparable English domain.

    Sure. I know it means "art of France / art from France" and I was thinking it would be great for a shop e.g. in the USA that sells French jewelry or antiques or, well, just art. Or it could be bought and used by French Ministry of Culture for promotional purposes. Please correct me if I got anything wrong. ;)

    @pb Thank you for allowing me to comment. The goal is to help you :)

    Art could also used with a finale 'S' = arts. The nuance is very thin and it quite hard for me to explain it in Engligh. L'Art would be a term that encompasses all forms of art. When Arts would be all disciplines of art.

    Regarding your domain, it is very possible to use "[...] de France", such as Café de France, Tour de France, le meilleur de France, etc. But you can also use, "[...] de la France" or "[...] français" depending of the topic and context.

    Art de la France sounds better for me than Art de France, Art français is even better in my opinion.

    You can also add the article le/la/les (the) or just an "l" when the word starts with a vowel. (i.e L'Art français)

    So your domain is not bad at all for foreigners, but if you are using a .fr, I would prefer art français ou (l')art de la France sounds better to me. The conflict is if I am in France, why would I say de France.

    If you are targetting French, I would use art.fr / arts.fr / lesarts.fr / lart.fr / beauxarts.fr / lesbeauxarts.fr / artnational.fr* / lartnational.fr* (* available)

    Do not hesitate to ask me more questions if it is not clear.

    Thanks!

    I have a few French domains in my portfolio. I know enough french to be dangerous.

    etudiants.org (students)
    Euronumeriques.com (digital euros)
    Passeportdesante.com
    Passeportsdesante.com
    Passeportsdesante.fr (Health passports, which seems to be the way Europe is going)

    The domain is .com. I know l'art would be more grammatically correct but I think it would just not look as good. Similarly to using vs dropping "the" in English - I think we can agree that using "the" in domains is unnecessary. But I guess Romance languages are a bit more strict with articles, so could you tell me how it is with domains? Is it common to use definite articles in domain names?

    etudiants .org is very nice!

    euronumeriques .com does not sound familiar. It is not something we are using.

    Passeportdesante = we would say: livretdesante or passeportsante / passeportDEsante does not sound right. (to me at least)

    Cheeky bastard! Lol

    Correct! Agreed!

    Also you guys better like and thank me for creating this thread? Why?

    1. Creating this thread in the General Discussion section got my account restricted again! Mods out this in the right section ( niche) Lol

    2. Now you guys have a section to showcase any foreign language domain in any extension with some exceptions.

    No Idn's or (I don't know the exact name for these) english alphabets with special characters on top of them. Anyone know the names of these special letters?

    Also, when I say foreign I'm talking ANY language. But written completely with english alphabets.

    Hyphenated domains welcome.

    All tld's welcome.
    I'll throw in one now so as to be not off topic.

    Brotvagen.com

    Most expensive residential street in Sweden pricing from starting $2 million to $25 million.

    Sorry my eyes were on the (.fr), as yours were on (l'). :xf.smile:

    If it is a .com domain, why not ArtOfFrance ArtFromFrench or FrenchArt(s)? [artfromfrance.com is available]

    I like LaMobilite! A domainer would prefer mobilite without the article, but in that case, it sounds good for a website about public transportation or car alternatives. You won't make a fortune with it. But it is descent so won't let it drop at the first renewal. But I won't keep it in my portfolio for ever neither.
