Wholly Moly! There are lessons in this domain name.

A Chinese company brand based on an English phrase. I was reading Chinese venture capital news recently when a company caught my attention. I was attracted to the name because it is written in English and, more importantly, the name is unusual. Wholly Moly is the name. Does it sound familiar? Yes, it is a […]

Is .com king in China?

By registration volume? No. But that’s not the only measure. We often see the expression “.com is king” which usually refers to the situation in the United States. Sometimes I also see this term used inside China. But is .com really No. 1 in China? Well, it depends on how you interpret the expression. If […]

Invest in what you know and do your own research

Wise words about domain investing. A new investor asked me to comment on a .cn domain he registered recently. He likes the domain because it is a “one-word” name. He had not done any research before making the acquisition decision. Since I am the worst domain appraiser in the world, I can’t comment on the […]

Investing in .cn.com and .com.cn names

Know what you’re getting, and that .cn is the most popular choice. Recently, a domain investor asked me to comment on the differences between .cn.com and .com.cn names, their marketability, sales potential, and trends. Note that I use the term “names” here to avoid the confusion between domain and subdomain. For example, cn.com is a […]

Reviewing 4-letter domains sold in June

Kassey Lee examines potential Chinese buyers for recent four-letter domain purchases. Here are some 4-letter domains sold in June. It seems to me that lately, the sentiment regarding 4L domains is quite pessimistic. At least in China, 4L domains have practical use. There are still many companies using 4-pin names, so 4L domains are perfect […]

Is the end user prospect for your domain a genuine one?

Make sure to do the research to verify it. I recently found a .com where the matching .cn is already developed. Because the second level domain is registered in another extension, does it mean I have a potential end user buyer for the .com? The domain is EaseToy .com. It was dropped and can be […]
