 DSAD.com: One thing I will admit is that Epik is doing a good job. I have never used them but I know they are because people I respect have said good things about the company. I don’t have to like Rob Monster to like the company. I think the world of Braden Pollack who is an owner but I realize the credit goes to Rob for leading his emp…

Domain Shane’s Daily List of Domains at Auction for Wednesday May 27th, 2020

 DSAD.com: I apologize but not a lot to say today. The heat and humidity in Illinois kicked up, combined with my new marathon training and I got my butt kicked the last few days. It helped and hurt that the nursery set a new record for the month a May and it was a number we’ve been chasing for 30 years. So it made the hours and focus reac…

Reviewing 4-character domains sold in April

Would these domains make good upgrades for Chinese companies?

Four L's on a blue and orange background

 

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.

A tool to find one-word domains and thoughts about the state of the domain business.

This week I have a guest interview and some thoughts about the domain industry.

 DSAD.com: I thought about taking the boat out yesterday, but then I remembered I never boat on Memorial day. I’m not being superstitious, but no one want’s to break down on the same day of the year twice and have to call 911 again. If you don’t remember I had a fiasco on the water a few years ago. I think there’s a vid…

Domain Shane’s Daily List of Domains at Auction for Monday May 25th, 2020

 DSAD.com: I talked about liking Godaddy’s new test landing page when you search for a name and now it looks like its permanent. At least it has been for me. Really gives buyers some options and looks like they all can be purchased directly from Godaddy even though they are 3rd party names. And that’s what I always wanted. For a bu…
