Top 10 Cambodian Websites

With the increasing number of internet users year by year especially on mobile phones, Cambodian presently are willing to know more about the world through online medias beside relying on the traditional ways, televisions, and radios. So, the website is playing more important role in delivering this kind of news to them.

You will ask for what are the top 10 websites in Cambodia?

If you want to find the 10 most popular websites in Cambodia, the top 4 go to foreign sites (#1 Facebook, #2 Youtube, #3 Google, #4 Google.com.kh - domain name in Khmer). Here, I would like to share only the list consists of top 10 websites that belong to Cambodian companies, collected data from Alexa (rank), SimilarWeb (traffic overview), Google PageSpeed (page speed for website), and Facebook (number of fans).

Note: All the websites are available in Khmer language and in news portal (8 sites mostly focus on entertainment,  1 site converts from the paper-based news, and another one specifies on health news).

The Top 10 Most Viewed Cambodian Websites

1. Sabay.com.kh

Sabay Digital Corporation is a leading digital media and entertainment group in Cambodia which formerly known as CIDC Information Technology was formed in 2007. Of course, young Cambodian will know this company by brand name 'Sabay' on its entertainment contents (Sabay News and Sabay Leng or Sabay Games, I could say that). Most traffic sources come from sharing on social medias, I think this reason why recently Sabay News portal has extended the channel to spread news on different categories using Facebook pages (Sabay News Entertainment, Sabay News Technology, Sabay News Social, and Sabay News Sport).

2. Khmerload.com

Khmerload was established in late 2011 by  a group of young Cambodians who believe in the role of Information Technology in advancing the society. For me, I think this website firstly gained popularity through spreading the hot sexy news, so-called 'Bekthlay' in Khmer language, on social media, Facebook. Since the visitors and popularity had gained enough, it gets the stand for business oriented such today.

Phnom Penh, Friday 2nd October 2015: Google announced it will host its first “Love Your Language Cambodia” translate-a-thon campaign this weekend (October 2-3) in a dedicated effort to reduce the language barrier for Khmer speakers on the web, at home and around the world, through crowd-sourced translations.

Love Your Language Cambodia Event
Google is inviting Cambodian translators, language experts and language lovers to help improve the quality of Khmer translations online. Google Asia Pacific's Amy Kunrojpanya, Head of Public Affairs & Communications for New Emerging Markets, explained, “We believe Google tools in the hands of our Cambodian users can help build a web that works for this country, its people and the Khmer language. We're introducing the Love Your Language campaign to open up the technology that powers Google Translate to communities passionate about their language in Cambodia. Working together we can improve the understanding and quality of Khmer translations, which in turn can help preserve and promote Cambodian culture and language online.”
Google Translate Community, a free crowdsourced translation tool, works with just few clicks or swipes on a mobile phone, tablet or laptop, and even just a few minutes can help millions of Cambodians around the world receive better translations. Google has also introduced Google Handwriting Input for Khmer, which gives internet users a simple way to input text on their smartphone or tablet by writing out Khmer characters with their finger or stylus pen. For those who find it difficult to use small keyboards in complex language scripts, or for older internet users who find typing to be a barrier, Google Handwriting can help them gain access to Khmer web content and the wider world.
Ms. Amy presenting about Google Translate

Google will hold a series of Love Your Language translation-a-thons in Phnom Penh from October 2-4, in partnership with the Royal University of Phnom Penh, the University of Puthisastra, Phnom Penh International University and local Google Developer Groups. Can’t make it to an event? You can still help contribute online at g.co/translate/community.


“If you’ve got accesses to the internet, no matter what device you have, you can help improve Khmer online. So why not take a few moments and let your feedback help millions?” added Ms. Kunrojpanya.

Chamnan joining Love Your Language Cambodia Event
During the launch, I was also participanting and one point I learnt from her sharing was "If you want to help your language more popular online, please use it much on the net (website posts, articles on Wikipedia, blog posts, social media posts ...). Personally, I am the one of translation contributors in Cambodia, and I take some minutes in helping translations on this community few times per week.  So, have you tried to help our, Khmer language, contribution yet?

Google Invites Cambodia to Love Your Language Online

It’s happened to many of us – at home and at work – when we want to save that extra photo, video file or important document and find that our computer, tablet or smartphone has run out of storage space.

For those of us who keep up to date on technological developments, we know that one relatively new solution to this frustration is using the ‘cloud’ to store our documents, files and business applications – enabling us to access them anywhere, any time, on any device.

Until now, the ‘cloud’ has been the exclusive domain of giant, global computing firms who have the infrastructure to support the massive amounts of storage needed to run a ‘cloud’ computing operation.

But thanks to its cutting edge technology, and its responsiveness to its customer’s demands, Cambodia’s leading internet company, EZECOM, will soon launch ibizCloud - a “Made in Cambodia” solution to the growing problem of IT capacities in our data-rich lives.

ibizCloud, a joint venture with Hong Kong telecoms giant Hutchison Global Communications, is initially aimed at the business market, offering an alternative to expensive on-site data management.

EZECOM will work with businesses to assess their data needs and IT requirements and then converge virtual, off-site data storage and management system – based in Cambodia, managed by Cambodians and still meeting all the strictest international security standards.


“Many businesses and IT managers are aware of cloud computing and the advantages it brings. But many are put off by the price tag from the global giants and the lack of face-to-face support from companies in the US or in Europe,” says Sok Yeng, Value Added Services Product Manager at EZECOM.

“ibizCloud is based in Cambodia and we understand Cambodian businesses so this will help ease any worries that businesses here have about using cloud computing – knowing that we are there, in person, to support them with their data management and storage,” says Sok Yeng.
The launch of ibizCloud comes at the start of a busy 2015 for EZECOM, which aims to build on its leading position as Cambodia’s number one internet and data services provider by being the first company in Cambodia to bring ashore a submarine fiber optic cable that will dramatically increase the internet bandwidth available and reliability to Cambodian internet users.

Now you can access your storage from anywhere, anytime and on any devices! ibizCloud's service provides you with:
  • Cloud Available Globally
  • Pioneer To On-demand VLL Service
  • Cloud-to-Cloud Private MPLS Connect
  • Defferent Tier Connectivity
  • Pay-as-you-go Charging Scheme
  • Fast Provisioning of Services
The slogan for this service "International Quality, Local Service".

Will Cambodian businesses support this made-in-Cambodia cloud service?
Personally, we have to support for this initiative idea and it is good opportunity to try and trust in term of support and quality.

Screen shot from WebChlaat's website
In today technology, the 21st century - era of Social Media and Cloud Computing - where we are living in connecting to one another thru ease of technology no matter where you stay, we can keep in touch each. To stay away from those internal or external cyber threats, we must learn how to stay safe online for those children and parents.

Seeing that Ezecom, Cambodia’s leading internet service provider, will soon launch WebChlaat - an online guide for children and their parents to help children enjoy the internet while staying safe from cyber bullying and inappropriate content, according to the company's news.

For parents the tips include: be smart and prepared to answer tough questions, be smart about anti-virus software and be smart about cyber bullying and its consequences.

“As a parent myself of course I want my children to enjoy the learning opportunities, entertainment and other resources that the internet offers. But its important that we help parents and children talk openly about some of the dangers that lurk out there on the internet, so that we can all benefit from the power of the internet without falling victim to the perils,” said Ezecom CEO Paul Blanche-Horgan.

The WebChlaat website underlines Ezecom’s long term commitment to supporting education and children’s rights.

While using the Translate app, just point your camera at a sign or text and you’ll see the translated text overlaid on your screen—even if you don't have an Internet or data connection.
This instant translation currently works for translation from English to and from French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish, and we’re working to expand to more languages.

Phnom Penh, Saturday November 29-30th, 2014: Hundreds of IT experts, business person, and students working and studying in the field of information technology come together today at ZAMAN University in the event of gDay & DevFest Cambodia 2014

Organized by local Google Developer and Google Business Groups, gDay (Google Day) is the first event to be held in Cambodia. However, in 2013 there was an event DevFest which was focused only on developer and IT Experts. 

In 2014, it is a bit difference since the two big events will be joined together in two days. gDay is leaded by Google Business Group Phnom Penh which will be focused on how to use Google technologies to maximize business while DevFest will be focused on training developers to new technology so that they can improve their skill to produce more applications.

The interesting thing is that according to Mr. Pich Viras, Community Manager of Google Business Group Phnom Penh, said “This time GBG will present how business can get more benefit and improve business online from Google technologies as well as how to make profit from it.”

Whereas, Google Developers Group will focus on a more participative event not just giving presentations and tech talks. “We will introduce the real first Hackhathon to this 2014 event” said Mr. Kong Somvannda, Community Co-manager. Added by Mr. Lonh Samdy, “Beside, Hackhathon, we will also have a CodeLab where participants need to complete a small program during 2-3 hours session.”


Based on Mr. Kong Somvannda and Mr. Lonh Samdy, both are Community Manager of Google Developer Group Phnom Penh, stressed that “We want Cambodia developers to be more practical by involving in coding session rather than sit still and listen to tech talks or presentations.”

So, What is really a hackathon?
Perwikipedia, “A hackathon (also known as a hack day,hackfest or codefest) is an event in which computer programmers and others involved in software development, including graphic designers, interface designers and project managers, collaborate intensively on software projects.”

Mr. Kong Somvannda who are responsible for PR and Communication for this event added that this year, we have big sponsors from Google, ZAMAN University, USAID’s Development Innovation, gGear - Official LG distributor, Online ISP, and MyTEB. LG will introduce SmartWatch and New Selfi Technology, and MyTEB will demonstrate affordable SmartPhone and Tablet.

gDay and DevFest Cambodia 2014 is a serious of world-wide community-lead events around the world that has technical and business sessions centered around Google Technologies and Platforms. It focuses on bringing together all passionate local developers, business persons, and students to share and to learn new technologies of code and network.

For further information, you can find on the event website: www.gdaycambodia.org.

Please manage your weekend time to attend this great event in Phnom Penh. See you all there!

By seeing so, SUNRISE Institute became an authorized partner of EC-Council in Cambodia where will organize the "Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) Version 8", the world most popular IT security course conducting in 5 days on 12-16 May, 2014 from 8am-5:30pm at CKCC with approximated price $1,700 (it just estimated price only in Cambodia but outside this country, I think it may cost about $2,500).

What You Will Learn:
This class will immerse the students into an interactive environment where they will be shown how to scan, test, hack and secure their own systems. The lab intensive environment gives each student in-depth knowledge and practical experience with the current essential security systems. Students will begin by understanding how perimeter defenses work and then be lead into scanning and attacking their own networks, no real network is harmed. Students then learn how intruders escalate privileges and what steps can be taken to secure a system. Students will also learn about Intrusion Detection, Policy Creation, Social Engineering, DDoS Attacks, Buffer Overflows and Virus Creation. For more course outline, you can visit official EC-Council website.

EC-Council has globally trained more than 120,000 security professionals in 87 countries, and is a leading provider of IT Security certification and also actively engages and certify key government organizations and corporations worldwide.

Who Will Instruct You:
According to SUNRISE Institute's poster, the instructor will be from foreign country who has certified of CEH which recognized globally.

Who Will Attend this Course:
This course will significantly benefit security officers, auditors, security professionals, site administrators, and anyone who is concerned about the integrity of the network infrastructure. Personally, I think there will be less student that can pay by their own fee based on the high price of the course for them to invest on learning. But I am sure that companies, especially from bank industries - where our money are kept, will send and pay for their staff to attend this very useful course.

What Benefits from the Course:
Individually, the participants who attended they will bring back to contribute to their employers and be security experts for improving our ICT, especially they have opportunity to apply for global certificate on The Certified Ethical Hacker exam 312-50.

Are you interested? If so, please contact SUNRISE Institute at: 023 997 282/ 016/099 997 282.

Note: This institute is also the first place that opens IT Governance course in IT Assurance & Security Audit for public.
I am not a promoter for the institute on this course, and I have shared it as for the good deeds in improving ICT in Cambodia ONLY.
Do You Know Who Is the First CEH Certified in Cambodia?
Before I had attended the IT Assurance & Security Audit class which lectured by Cambodian professional lecturer, I did not know the word "CEH" is, since then I started query who is the first Cambodian guy who got certified this world-top certificate. Finally, I found him a person who I often met as well. He, Mr. Yeng Sok, is the First Certified Ethical Hacker in Cambodia; I do appreciate his great earning the international certificate.

Don't let this opportunity go without you! And let's produce more human resources in Advanced IT level!

Recently Google is improving faster in its products and services especially in next wave emerging market like Cambodia as my previous post about How Many Google Services Available in Khmer Language? which told you all Khmer languages list in Google - it's counted as an evidence of improvement.
The new Captions Feature in video, Youtube had released it since 2008.
Captions can help people who would not otherwise understand the audio track to follow along, especially those who speak other languages or who are deaf and hard of hearing.
 But the Translate Captions is still in a beta, that allows us to watch all videos where the owners has added them translating into a list of available languages (as above photo showing selection in Khmer).
So how to watch the video with Captions in Khmer language? I will guide you as the following:

  1. You are sure that Captions are only available on videos
  2. If a video has captions, you can turn them on by clicking the captions icon at the bottom of the video. Depending on your location, the captions icon will look like one of the following:  or 
  3. Click on "ON/OFF - must be ON", next click on default language list box "English (United State)" then go to "Translate Captions" at the top
  4. Then the popup of "Translate Captions BET" appears, next please scroll down to select language "Khmer -- ខ្មែរ", last you have to click "OK" to apply. You got it done right?
If so, please try to set auto-translate the video of Explore a Google data center with Street View into Khmer language as below:



How the meaning of Captions translated into Khmer correctly - it's based on how we can contribute our correction in Google Translate project.

About a year ago since 2012, PP-GTUG announced Cambodia Mapping Competition from 15 October – 30 November 2012 for booming the maps.

Finally, what I have been waiting for about Google Maps since I've known how nice and useful of Google Street View. Now it officially launches in my beloved country, Cambodia, on July 23rd, 2013.

Cambodia becomes the 51st country on the planet to embrace Street View and, like many others, tourism is among the driving factors. Google says it is working closely with the Ministry of Tourism of Cambodia, the APSARA Authority (ANA), and the Phnom Penh Municipality to make the program happen.

Street View cars have started whizzing around capital city Phnom Penh capturing images and, as is common with Street View projects, they will expand to cover other cities, town and areas of interest over “the next few years.”

Culture vultures will be keen to hear that Google is fast-tracking the Angkor Wat archaeological site. The company has already dispatched a Street View Trekker team to photograph the historic temple in all its beauty.

Governments once feared the privacy and intrusion issues around Street View and Google Maps, but today many welcome the service as a chance to boost awareness of their country to potential tourists worldwide. Speaking along those lines, Cambodia’s Minister of Tourism Dr. Thong Khon said:
Google’s mapping technology will offer various benefits and help us continue showcasing our beautiful culture and country with the world. Through this partnership with Google and through our on­going ‘Kingdom of Wonders’ campaign, we hope to engage more people, both local and global, in experiencing Cambodia in new way.
Sooner our nice 360-degree panoramic views of other notable heritage locations will be shown to the world through this project. And we can contribute the panoramic photos or photo spheres to Street View Contribute as well.

Bravo, Cambodia! You can check the Google Maps's official domain in Khmer at maps.google.com.kh. Note: Google Maps now available in Khmer language too!

Google Street View Project Officially Launches in Cambodia!

After Gmail introduced new composed and reply experience since the end of 2012, today Gmail is getting a brand new inbox on desktop and mobile that puts you back in control using simple, easy organization.

On the desktop, the new inbox groups your mail into categories which appear as different tabs. You simply choose which categories you want and voila! Your inbox is organized in a way that lets you see what’s new at a glance and decide which emails you want to read when.

You can easily customize the new inbox - select the tabs you want from all five to none, drag-and-drop to move messages between tabs, set certain senders to always appear in a particular tab and star messages so that they also appear in the Primary tab. Personally, I really like this such a new feature!

Check out how it works?

Welcome to the new Gmail inbox

Today when I have shared a content on my workplace social media page, CJCC's Facebook, it is surprised to me while I check back the content I posted on the page.
Do you know what makes me surprised on Facebook?
It is a Hash tag "#" just a feature or a sign that I always use it to promote contents generated automatically to another short-text-share social media, Twitter, and I have been waiting for on this most popular network as well.

What does Hash tag "#" on social media give advantage for you?
Let me express my personal view on this tag "# - Hash" that is used by popular social media networks like Google+, Instagram, Twitter, Tumblr, or Pinterest, and recent days on Facebook to help people more easily discover what others are saying about a specific topic and participate in public conversations. It helps you to increase or improve your SEO when your contents sharing any linked topics on it.

Facebook's Hashtags are clickable and allow you to add context to a post or indicate that it is part of a larger discussion. When you click on a hashtag in Facebook, you'll see a feed of what other people and Pages are saying about that event or topic.
And referring to a post on Newsroom that explained as the following:
Hashtags are just the first step to help people more easily discover what others are saying about a specific topic and participate in public conversations. We'll continue to roll out more features in the coming weeks and months, including trending hashtags and deeper insights, that help people discover more of the world's conversations.
So I hope we will get more nice features for the-introduce-hashtags in Facebook on next coming days.

How Facebook's Hashtags differentiate with other social medias?
The below I have raised up some experiences (how-to, what can or cannot ...) that found through my daily use on them (Facebook, Google+, Twitter, Instagram, and Tumblr):

*Facebook:
• Clickable on both desktop's web interface (smart device's one, on the way?)
• Search for a specific hashtag from your search bar. For example, #KhmerRoyalPalace (as above photo).
• Click on hashtags that originate on other services, such as Instagram or inside comments (it's a nice point I prefer).
• Compose posts directly from the hashtag feed and search results
• Searchable by filling in URL address (https://www.facebook.com/hashtag/FillingText), just copy this url into internet browser then replace on the word "FillingText" what you want to search for, available only when user logged-in.

*Google+:
• Clickable on both desktop's web interface & smart devices's apps
• Powerful search on hash topic on Search box, only on desktop's web interface (type "#" in front of word, e.g. #Cambodia)
• Categorical search hash topic such as Everything, People, Communities, Google+ posts, Photos, and more & view-able by Best of or Most recent (available on desktop's web interface)
• Searchable by filling in URL address (https://plus.google.com/u/0/s/%23FillingText), just copy this url into internet browser then replace on the word "FillingText" what you want to search for even there's no user log-in.

*Twitter:
• Clickable on both desktop's web interface & smart devices's apps
• Searchable on hash topic on Search box (type "#" in front of word, e.g. #Cambodia)
• View-able hash topic by Top or All
• Searchable by filling in URL address (https://twitter.com/search/realtime?q=%23FillingText&src=hash), just copy this url into internet browser then replace on the word "FillingText" what you want to search for even there's no user log-in.

*Instagram:
• Clickable only on smart devices's apps
• Searchable on hash topic only by smart device's apps
• No view-able hash topic by category (on smart device)
• No search on URLs

*Tumblr:
• Clickable on both desktop's web interface & smart devices's apps
• Searchable on hash topic on Search box while viewing any topic
• Main view-able hash topic as slideshow
• Searchable by filling in URL address (http://www.tumblr.com/tagged/FillingText) or personal url (e.g. http://chamnanmuon.tumblr.com/tagged/FillingText), just copy this url into internet browser then replace on the word "FillingText" what you want to search for even there's no user log-in.

Finally, what the most hash tags have been used nicely and let start to use it as marketing campaign.
