RIP ChaoMi : domain tool is better AND in English!

Everyone’s been raving about ChaoMi, the Chinese domain tool displaying domain sales trends in China.

Apparently, you’ve been wasting your time with it.

BenMi, operating from, is a much better tool that provides a full English section.


That’s right, no more translating stuff with funny results just to post the most recent prices in,, and other combinations popular with the Chinese domain investors!

BenMi, which means “crazy counter” in Chinese, provides detailed charts at the push of a button. You can select data from specific date ranges, as well.

But that’s not all.

benmi-com offers a live domain auction aggregator across several marketplaces.

Want to see how action for your favorite four letter (sans A,E,I,O,U,V letters) .net is unfolding? No problem.

There is a great “Advanced Search” section to tweak your searches based on length, extension and other options. Think of it as NameJet search on acid! 😀

The beauty of the Chinese domain tool, BenMi, does not end there.

Need a reliable alternative to the historic WHOIS of DomainTools? Try and its many WHOIS changes, displayed in an easy to read format.


All these options – and more – make the indispensable tool in determining your next domain investment in – or withdrawal from – the Chinese domain market.

For now, prices are listed in CNY only; hopefully in the future, the creators of BenMi will offer other currencies, such as USD as well.

Visit now, you’ll be glad you did! 😀

    I thought the post was a gag!! Nice job!!
    Nice to see single digit .cc over $500k! Everyone knew .cc was the #2 choice beside .com. It is the easiest extension to type in the World.
    It will rightfully rise to the top once the Chinese market matures a bit more. Both run by verisign means stability in Asia. .cn is a crapshoot as the government can take a .cn whenever they want. Same problem happening with .in. If the Indian government or a large company in India wants your domain the government most times will give it to them. cctld’s run by unpredictable governments are a very risky investment. Investing in an extension run by the same registry that runs .com is a no brainer……imho….:)
