TLD Registry Ltd the registry for Dot Chinese Online (.在线) and Dot Chinese Website (.中文网) has released a new tool to help domain investors who do not speak Chinese (guys like me) to find available domains in Chinese.
The New tool is ChineseLandrush.com .
“ChineseLandrush.com is an innovative new way to help non-Chinese speakers to understand and invest in Chinese domains.
At ChineseLandrush.com, visitors will always find 500 great, hand-made domain name suggestions.
The suggestions are not yet registered, and they’re not registry-reserved.
The 500 domain name suggestions are yours for the taking.
Our suggestions are hand-made by our team of Chinese domain experts in Beijing, Hong Kong and New York. For ChineseLandrush.com we never use automated “domain spinning” tools. Our domain suggestions encompass categories from activities, sports and hobbies, common phrases, food, geographic, immigration and travel, medical, and more than a dozen other relevant categories.
If you register a free account and log-into ChineseLandrush.com, you have access to our powerful custom list tool. You can add your domain choices to your cart, and “check out” by downloading a handy spreadsheet file. Then, you can easily copy-and-paste your list into the bulk-registration page at the domain registrar of your choice.
Every night, our automated systems scan yesterday’s domain registrations and cleanse the suggestions database of new domains. The list of 500 domain suggestions is then replenished from our “hopper” of several thousand hand-made suggestions.””
According to the registry “Since their public launch ten weeks ago, Dot Chinese Online (.在线) and Dot Chinese Website (.中文网) have rocketed to the number 1 and 2 positions in namestats‘ “Internationalized Domain Names” (IDN) leaderboard.”
“Many of the world’s most successful domain name investors have already bought our domains. In fact, our first premium domain name auction, held in Macau in April, is still the most successful in ICANN’s new gTLD program (we raised USD184,000 for 33 domain name lots). And during our first month of general availability, more than $580,000 in Dot Chinese Online & Dot Chinese Website domains were sold to end-users and investors.”
