If you have ever wondered the significance of Domain Names and how they came about, then this article will allow you to understand the importance of Domain Names and their value Not only this it will educate you to know everything that you need to know about Domain Names.
Since writing this post back in December, I have changed the title of the book and the cover. I feel this describes the Neom Project better than the old title. I will keep you updated on the progress. I have even got a website which is under construction www.neomcitybook.com ready for the launch.
Just a little teaser…..I have had some inspiration in the last couple of days as a light bulb moment sprung to mind. My new book in the New Year will talk about everything and anything about Neom Mega City. As a marketer, domain broker and business consultant I need to put my ideas down on paper so to speak. Obviously this book will take you back into history as well take you into the future. This will be in layman terms, easy reading as always and very insightful ………
In the meantime I have listed more ‘Neom Domain Names’.
Here is a quick view of the latest ones and do not forget to check our marketplace for more Neom Names that are waiting to be developed.
If you think your domain is note worthy and you are looking for the one investor to buy your domain for $$$$$$ or more, you maybe hanging round for a long time. But what if you got 100 investors to purchase shares for an nominal amount (a) you would make your money and then your investors would have to wait for the one investor that would pay out dividends.
What is going to be harder finding one investor to pay the asking price or a 100 investors buying a small stake to a domain name that may or may not sell?
Interesting concept but $100 is still a lot of money. Remember to always prioritise your living expenses first before investing in domain names and only invest money if you can afford to loose it. Domaining is not a get rich scheme and will not make you money overnight. You need to do a lot of hard work in order for any domain name to sell.
Highjacking is something some entites will do in order to force the
owner to give up their domain name for free.
The argument here is if the name was available from day dot then the entity should have registered it as soon as it was possible even reserving and putting limitations on people trying to register a domain as in the cases of domain extensions such as dot eu whereby one has to be a resident of the eu to own the domain or in the case of Arab Emirates dot ae. I have never heard any cases of a country/city/town making claim to a two or three word domain other than:
one person commented on the post, the entity should have acquired
a list of domain names for limitation
in order from this happening, so that the registrant would have been
prevented to register a trademark let alone a domain name.
registrars should stop selling domain names that have legal
implications and limitations unless the registrant can prove without
reasonable doubt that he/she has rights to owning that domain.
***In the case of ‘Neom’ names, I have attemped to reach out to neom.com both of their social media platform and sending an email and so far I have not had a reply. This is starting to look very uncertain and someone needs to address this. In this day and age one has to show transparency. Obviously I want to protect my clients and have their best interests at heart.
far as I am concerned there are only two options.
Let anyone and everyone register two and three word domain names with the word ‘Neom’ in it, without any repercussions.
The entity acquires a list of keyword domain names and put limitations on the words.
business model offers website design, marketing and advertising we
simply do not offer domain names for sale without a business plan. We
also have a list of keyword domain names, some are registered some

Neom City on my mind. So phase 1 has been completed and phase 2 is planned for completion soon.
But beyond all the physical plans and all the construction and talks and consulting firms hired, no one has touched on the fact aswell as a physical world we also have to match the virtual world in terms of location, being found and driving traffic to the said area. Eventually there will be PR agencies that will jump on the bandwagon and Advertising companies but more needs to be written on the proposals of how the startup businesses are going to be run and what they need to do in order to start building a profitable business. Rome was not built in 7 days and although websites can be it still does not reflect how startups should aim to develop themselves.
No one has mentioned anything about companies wishing to start business in Neom. I have reached out to Neom.com and they have not replied, so thinking outside the box I will be contacting the consulting companies soon basically doing their work for them. There are three consulting firms that have been hired but none talk about businesses starting up in Neom and what the protocals are.
No one has done a step by step plan on how to start a business in Neom. People need to know this well in advance. It takes time to get training and licenses. Aswell as this and everyone in the SEO industry would agree with me it takes time to generate traffic and its always better to develop a website well in advance in order to be ranked by search engines, which could take anything from 12 to 18 months for this to happen.
Businesses should be able to secure their global positioning way ahead of their competitors and where better to start and that is by using the word ‘Neom’ in the searchable phrase for the industry you wish to target.
I have just launched www.neomsme.com and for anyone that does not know what SME means it is an acronym of ‘Small, Medium Enterprises’.
On this website I will offer website design, marketing, seo and domain sales and acquisitions. If there is a domain that one desperately needs we can help acquire that name for the prospective business owner.
I have so many questions to ask Neom.com but my arabic is not very good.
Never mind hiring the best consulting firms on the planet if they do not guide business owners in the right direction.
Invest in me and I will do the consulting, marketing and advertising.
I have spoken to many people and Neom City is relatively unheard of in the western world unless you read business news that is.
Without giving too much away and I have plently of ideas, more has to be done in order to help this project off the ground. It is no good doing things backwards and leaving things like domain name securing and website development to the last minute.
There is no time like the present to build a business and put a launch date on the landing page.
This is a great opportunity for startups to claim their domain names in time for the opening of this magnificent project. The first phase of construction of the $500bn futuristic city has been built with the second phase to be announced by the end of this year.
The first phase of the giant project covered economic planning and strategy, funding and the roadmap of the development, whilst phase two will announce detailed plans for Neom’s 16 economic sectors and regions, which is planned to be completed by the end of the year.
Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman announced in 2017 that the project would be built on the Red Sea coast, which comprises a 26,500km² area in the far north-west of Saudi Arabia.
Neom, aims to be the largest global model in every sector focusing on advanced spheres and technologies powered by robots and generated solely by solar and wind energy.
The name is short for Latin-Arabic term Neo-Mustaqbal, which means “new future”.
As always I quote a very interesting video that ‘Chris Zuiker’ has made, teaching you the reality of pricing domain names. Most domain names will not sell as they do not have raw equity. Although his calculations are in line with what I do when it comes to pricing domain names I do disagree on one count as he mentions that he multiplies the price of the keyword by the amount of searches per month and divides that by 25% but in reality a click through ratio is about 2%.
