Reviewing 3-letter domains sold in May and April

Kassey Lee explains why these domains have appeal in China.

3-letter domains are highly sought after in corporate China because they can shorten long Pinyin names and also help Chinese companies go global. Some successful examples are DJI.com and ZBJ.com.

In this article, I’ll look at some 3-letter domains sold in May and April that could also be valuable to companies in China.

KPH.com sold for $ 24,999. KPH is a good name because it can be used to create many Chinese brands such as Kuai Pao Huo (快跑货=fast running goods), which can be used for a logistics business.

TXO.com sold for $ 27,500. Some domain investors may not know this: O is not a bad letter because it is actually an acronym for Pinyin words. Some examples are Ou (偶=by chance), O (噢=Oh!), and Ou (欧=Europe).

FWW.com sold for $ 35,000. FWW is very powerful because it ends with the letter W, which can be the acronym for Wang (网=network). There are many companies with their name ending with Wang. An example is ZGW.com for Zhong Gang Wang (中钢网), a Chinese steel network site that ranks 75 in the 2019 Top 100 Chinese Internet Companies list.

XGO.com sold for $ 21,418. XGO.com.cn forwards to 58che.com, a marketplace for cars. 58 rhymes with Wo Fa (我发=I’ll be rich) and Che is the Pinyin for the Chinese character 车 (cars).

WTL.com sold for $ 15,300. WTL.com.cn is the corporate domain of Wei Te Li (威特力), a high-tech company that produces inverter-type welding power supply and welding equipment. Note the WLT is the correct acronym for the company’s name.

I hope you have learned something about 3-letters domains as they relate to China. In my opinion, it is a market segment with great potential.

Reviewing 4-character domains sold in April

Would these domains make good upgrades for Chinese companies?

One of my interests is to find end users in China for .com domains as upgrades. In this article, I’ll look at some 4-character domains sold in April that could be valuable to companies in China. This methodology might help you when you think about selling domains to Chinese companies.

Note that I always check both .cn and .com.cn in my end user research. This is because even though .cn has about 9 times the registration volume of .com.cn, there are still many companies using .com.cn.

FFP2.com sold for $ 6,492. FFP2 .com.cn forwards to 9175QX .com, which looks like a betting portal with lots of flashy links. In this case, FFP2.com is unlikely a potential upgrade for FFP2.com.cn.

QS88.com sold for $ 3,159 and is already listed on the LVMI.com marketplace with a BIN price of 80,000 yuan (or about $ 12,000). QS may be an acronym for Quan Sheng (全胜=total victory), Qiao Shou (巧手=skillful hands), and Qing Song (轻松=effortless). 8 rhymes with Fa (发=making a fortune).

JS52.com sold for $ 2,247. JS52 .cn links to JS123-1 .com which is a betting site. In this case, JS52.com is unlikely a potential upgrade for JS52 .cn.

XJ33.com sold for $ 1,230 and is already listed with a BIN price of 28,880 yuan (about $ 4,300). XJ33 .cn appears to be a betting site but the brand may be Bet365, so XJ33.com is unlikely a potential upgrade for XJ33 .cn.

383K.com sold for $ 1,100. 383K .com.cn forwards to YA022 .com which looks like a lottery site, so 383K.com is unlikely a potential upgrade for 383K .com.cn.

ZZ22.com sold for $ 1,051. ZZ22.cn is a manufacturer of electronic devices such as inductors, electronic transformers, and filters. However, its brand is Fu He (富合) which apparently is unrelated to ZZ22.cn. Therefore, ZZ22.com is unlikely a potential upgrade for ZZ22.cn.

In these examples, I could not find any genuine end users in China for the .com domains as upgrades. However, it still should be helpful by showing that a developed .cn or .com.cn does not guarantee that there are desired end users for your .com domains. Further research is needed.

Reviewing 4-letter domains sold in April

Some of these four letter domains could have value in China.

Four L's on a blue and orange background

Here are some 4-letter domains sold in April as reported by Namebio. I’ll try to look at them from a Chinese perspective, which hopefully will help you when researching Chinese buyers for your domains.

MDRP.com sold for $ 4,000. MDRP.cn is for sale at 5,888 yuan or about $ 883. The .com is more than 4X the price of the .cn. MDRP can be an acronym for Mo Deng Ru Pin (摩登乳品=modern milk products) and many more Pinyin phrases.

CSSM.com sold for $ 1,800. CSSM.com.cn is an online magazine organized by the Ministry of Science and Technology, and CSSM is the acronym for “China Soft Science Magazine”. In this case, the domain matches the name of the magazine. CSSM can also be an acronym for Chang Su Shang Mao (畅速商贸=smooth and fast trades) and many more Pinyin phrases.

NLLW.com sold for $ 1,050. When you see a Chinese site filled with contents, do not immediately assume you have found an end user who should upgrade to your domain. The contents may not be genuine. In the case of NLLW.com.cn, it appears to be an education-related site but the message at the bottom of the page indicates the contents are taken from other online sources and the domain is actually for sale.

GMTS.com sold for $ 1,055. GMTS.cn appears to be a developed site but I could not see any contents. The HTML source of the page gives mixed signals: the page description is about sports games but most of the content is about electronic parts. So, I would not assume that this is a genuine end user.

GMTS .com.cn is a simple site titled “Lottery Industry Supervision Bureau”. However, it has only a menu filled with links to games and betting sites built on .co domains such as A668 .co, M668 .co, and C668 .co. The “668” here rhymes with Lu Lu Fa (路路发=make a fortune in every path you take), so it is quite appropriate for betting sites. Again, I would not assume this is a genuine end user.

MYPX.com sold for $ 3,605. MYPX.cn is a developed site by Xin Fang Xiang (新方向) to provide training for women interested in developing a career in child care. The domain and the company name do not seem to match, so I would not assume MYPX.com is a natural upgrade for the MYPX.cn owner. MYPX can also be an acronym for Mei Yu Pi Xie (美誉皮鞋=reputable shoes) and many more Pinyin phrases.
