Amazon Lands Z.cn As A Shortener In China Which Reminds Us They Haven’t Launched Their .Co Domains
Amazon announced today its changing its brand name it uses in China from Joyo Amazon to Amazon China.
Amazon also announced that it has obtained the domain name Z.cn, which is re-directing to Amazon’s Chinese official website at Amazon.cn.
According to the one story I found on the domain, there was no discussion of how Amazon obtained the domain or how much they paid for it.
The domain name Z.Cn is currently registered to “Wang Hanhua” so its not clear they even own the domain at this point
None of those domains even resolve.
Not sure what’s going on with them but that a very long time for domains to be inactive especially when statements made around the acquisition indicated each single letter .Co is priced into the seven figures.
