Bonus view today is a doughnut chart showing volume sold by category. More than 50% of the volume is made up of 4i (.cc, .biz, .org) in that order. That surprised me. I hadn’t been paying attention to the 4i.org market at all. The Chinese are certainly paying attention to it.
For those of you out there that research trends in the Chinese domain market, I would like to know what sites (English or Chinese or any language) you use to see trends and prices. I’m looking at information on Chaomi.cc, and it is useful but not very complete. I’ve looked at Benmi.com, and it looks fairly comprehensive, but the price is not granular enough to be very useful. 4.cn is good, but they only show the names sold on their platform and from what I can tell the volume of names sold there is quite small.
Most of the descriptions are easily understood, but just in case there are questions:
N = Numeric
I = Initial (a letter not including a,e,i,o,u,v)
C = Character (any number or letter)
