Chinese domain market report : Ready for the October 18th Communist Party congress

China is about to elect its leadership council on October 18th; the world’s most populous nation and second largest economy will most likely re-elect the same party leader, Chinese President Xi Jinping.

It’s sad that 1.3 billion Chinese won’t have much of a say, as 2300 delegates will directly elect the 200 members of China’s Central Committee. That committee will then elect the Politburo, but then there’s more.

Meanwhile, China’s domain investors are voting with their money, and as Bitcoin is volatile, they continue to invest in short domain names.

Since 2015, we’ve been publishing the Chinese domain market report, keeping track of domains 1 to 4 characters in length, in the .CN, .COM and .NET TLDs that change hands in China.

Recently, two letter domain moved to China, according to domain investor George Kirikos, who shared the news.

Kirikos owns several high quality, LL .com domains, and he keeps track of such transactions for that reason as well.

Today’s list of domains that changed hands spans October 3rd to October 7th, for a total of 68 domains. Volume is definitely well below the glory days in 2015, and prices for “Chinese premium” letters hover just below the $1,000 dollar mark.
