Chinese domain market report : Hold, sell or panic?

Domain sales Made in China.

Domain sales Made in China.

The Chinese domain market is at a pivoting point, half-way through the (western) year.

Although the Chinese lunar year began in February, the Year of the Monkey has had a slow start, as far as domain investments go.

Last year, we witnessed the proliferation of domain chips, LLLL .com domains without any vowels or the letter “V.”

This year, the lackluster performance of such domains lasted several months, however in the past 60 days we’re seeing signs of stability and volume increase in sales.

So is it time to hold your domain assets, sell them or panic not knowing which direction the Chinese domain market is going?

Smart domain investors never put all their eggs in the same basket, and we’d advise against heavy investments in Chinese “Chips.” Diversification is the key.

The dot .NET counterparts, LLLL .net domains, have been trading in the $20 to $30 dollar territory, according to some reports. That’s about ten times less than last year!

If the Chinese domain market forms part of your investment strategy, then Pinyin domains and geodomains should be a healthy part of your Chinese domain portfolio.

We keep track of domain sales for domains that are 2-4 characters in length, in the .CN, .COM and .NET TLDs.

Here is today’s list, significantly shorter than recent days:

Yes, we included a 5N .com, because it’s a good one. 😀
