This is the final Chinese domain market report for 2016, a year that saw “Chinese premiums” plummet in value and sales volume. A year ago, prices were more than twice as high, often surpassing $2,500 for random, “junk” QJZX letters in the .com TLD. As prices peaked, so did the white noise about lesser extensions, […]Copyright © 2017 DomainGang.com · All Rights Reserved.

Big things are coming from China, where corporate budgets can be outlandish by Western standards.
