Web.com scoops up Aussie domain business Webcentral for AUS $12.2 million

Domain Name Wire - Mon, 07/13/2020 - 17:08

It’s the second Australian domain registrar acquisition in two years for Web.com.

Domain name company Web.com is acquiring Webcentral Group (ASX:WCG) for AUS $12.2 million.

Webcentral has about 330,000 customers and focuses on the Australian market. Web.com acquired another Australian domain company, Dreamscape Networks, for $73 million last year.

While WebCentral is not a household name, some of its brands are: Melbourne IT, Netregistry, and WME.

If you’re keeping score at home, this is the third acquisition involving pieces of what was once a dominant player in Melbourne IT. Tucows and CentralNic bought slices of its former reseller network.

Siris Capital owns Web.com. Its other key brands include Network Solutions and Register.com.

Why Squadhelp’s new white label marketplace is worth a look

Domain Name Wire - Mon, 07/13/2020 - 16:37

A lot is going on under the hood with Squadhelp’s new marketplace option.

Squadhelp’s white label domain marketplace option is about more than creating a marketplace.

SquadHelp announced its new white label marketplace option today. It enables domain investors to create their own marketplace of domain names.

I wasn’t excited when I first read about this. There are several options out there for creating a marketplace for your domains. I’ve never been a fan of this because I find it unlikely that someone will land on your marketplace, search for a domain, and buy it.

But Squadhelp buries the lede with its announcement. What the white label marketplace really lets you do is set up great landing pages for your domains with added features and low commissions.

When you add domains to your white label marketplace through Squadhelp, you get:

  1. A good landing page for your domain. See OnshoreSupport.com for an example.
  2. 24/7 live chat and phone support on that landing page. I think this is huge. Buyers with questions can chat with a human to resolve any questions.
  3. Squadhelp remarkets your domains to people who land on them through retargeting ads across the web.
  4. Add logos to your domains for $5.  (A logo is required to get remarketing. Logos are free if they are approved as premium domains in Squadhelp’s marketplace.)
  5. 7.5% sales commission.

I talked about this new platform and how domainers can use Squadhelp’s tools with Squadhelp CEO Darpan Munjal on this week’s DNW Podcast.

You can see the marketplace I set up here.

Domain Name Wire - Mon, 07/13/2020 - 15:30

Squadhelp is becoming a formidable player in the domain aftermarket.

It’s one thing to list your brandable domains for sale. It’s another thing to list them for sale and have people suggest them to end users at the exact moment they’re searching for a name. That’s one of the many benefits of Squadhelp, a crowd-sourced naming service. On today’s show, Squadhelp CEO Darpan Munjal explains how the platform works and talks about the company’s new white label domain marketplace system. You can see the white label marketplace I created here.

AIRY GreenTech tries reverse domain name hijacking

Domain Name Wire - Fri, 07/10/2020 - 17:07

offCompany tries (and fails) to upgrade its domain through a cybersquatting complaint.

AIRY wanted to upgrade its domain to AIRY.com, but a WIPO panelist determined the case was brought in bad faith.

Talk about kicking someone when they’re down.

AIRY GreenTech GmbH has been found to have attempted reverse domain name hijacking for the domain name Airy.com. The domain name is owned by a travel business in Indonesia that has been struggling due to the pandemic. In fact, it has suspended its business due to the downturn.

This case has lots of twists and turns, but it ultimately shows how egregious the Complainant’s actions were in bringing the case, and then not withdrawing it when more facts became apparent.

AIRY GreenTech sells a plant system designed to clean your indoor air. It uses the domain airy.green for its website.

It tried to buy the domain name Airy.com back in 2015. Its highest offer for the domain was $40,000, but the owner wanted $80,000.

In 2017, the Respondent swooped in and bought the domain for $150,000. It operated the travel website AiryRooms.com and forwarded its new domain to AiryRooms.com.

A Uniregistry domain broker followed up with AIRY GreenTech after the Respondent bought the domain. This might have been confusing to AIRY GreenTech, but it still doesn’t excuse its case.

Even though Airy.com started forwarded to AiryRooms.com, AIRY GreenTech decided to file a UDRP in May against Airy.com. It argued:

The Complainant asserts that the redirection of the disputed domain name to another website demonstrates the illegitimacy of the Respondent’s interest therein and use in bad faith, adding that the Respondent is endeavoring to mislead Internet users into the belief that there is an association between the Complainant’s mark and the hotel booking services offered on the redirected site so that those searching for the Complainant will mistakenly reach the disputed domain name and be redirected to hotel booking related website unrelated to the Complainant whereby the Respondent will benefit commercially from traffic intended for the Complainant. The Complainant adds that it is likely that the Respondent registered the disputed domain name to prevent the Complainant from using its trademark in the disputed domain name thus further evidencing bad faith.

Sometimes I think lawyers should have a layperson read their arguments just to see if they make sense. That layperson would ask, “So the perpetrator is trying to trick your customers looking to improve their indoor air quality by selling travel in Indonesia?”

Yeah, it doesn’t make much sense.

If the Complainant didn’t do its homework before filing, it certainly should have known its case was dead after receiving verification information about who actually owned the domain. But it doubled down instead.

The panel wrote:

Once the original Complaint was filed, certain matters were disclosed upon Registrar verification which should also form part of the RDNH analysis as these should have influenced the Complainant’s decision to continue with the administrative proceeding. The Respondent’s personal name was revealed together with its email contact details which used an address “@airyrooms.com”. This is significant information as it appears to indicate a link between the Respondent and the website to which the disputed domain name was pointed. Despite the fact that the Complainant alleges that the said redirection of the disputed domain name was in fact indicative of bad faith, the Complainant appears to have made no attempt to investigate this new information. Had it done so, it is perfectly reasonable to conclude that it would have become aware of the Respondent’s employment status and link with “www.airyrooms.com”. This should also have alerted the Complainant to the fact that the Respondent was affiliated with the business to which the disputed domain name forwarded traffic. Both of these items were sufficient to demonstrate to the Complainant that the Respondent was legitimately connected to a business which was using the disputed domain name in connection with a bona fide offering of goods and services.

Despite this new material being placed before it, the Complainant merely indicated that it declined to direct the Complaint against the Respondent, noting that it was content to proceed against the privacy service which was the registrant originally noted on the public WhoIs record. Incongruously, the Complainant then went on to refer to the newly disclosed Respondent in the amended Complaint…

Panelist Andrew Lothian concluded that the case is an example of “Plan B” reverse domain name hijacking in which a company tries to buy a domain and resorts to UDRP when it is unsuccessful. He wrote:

Fundamentally, the Complainant’s failure to consider the dictionary word nature of the disputed domain name, the history of the disputed domain name and the background to its acquisition of rights in the AIRY trademark caused it to overlook multiple weaknesses in its case. Thereafter, the Complainant’s failure to make reasonable investigations as to the nature of the Respondent’s identity and business activities resulted in it failing to appreciate the nature of the Respondent’s rights and legitimate interests in the disputed domain name. These failures are all the more concerning given that the Complainant is represented by legal counsel.

The Panel concludes that this is a Complaint which was destined to fail and should never have been brought. In these circumstances, it is particularly regrettable that the Complainant’s actions have caused the Respondent to invest considerable time and resources in preparing and submitting a substantial Response at a time when, as it notes, it is also having to deal with the sudden detrimental effect of the current global pandemic upon its business.

It strikes me that now would be an excellent time for AIRY GreenTech to try to buy Airy.com. The domain owner has fallen on hard times due to the pandemic and has ceased its business. It would probably sell the domain for less than it bought it for.

Except…AIRY GreenTech took the low road instead of the high road. That’s going to make negotiating to purchase the domain much more difficult.

Office Freylinger S.A. of Luxembourg represented AIRY GreenTech. Fusion Law of Indonesia represented the domain owner.

Reviewing 4-letter domains sold in June

Domain Name Wire - Fri, 07/10/2020 - 13:39

Kassey Lee examines potential Chinese buyers for recent four-letter domain purchases.

Here are some 4-letter domains sold in June. It seems to me that lately, the sentiment regarding 4L domains is quite pessimistic. At least in China, 4L domains have practical use. There are still many companies using 4-pin names, so 4L domains are perfect for them.

MYTY.com sold for $24,999. This is a fabulous sale at 5 figures. MYTY looks like “mighty”. In Chinese, MYTY may be an acronym for many phrases such as Mei Yu Tai Yi (美誉太医=reputable imperial physician), Mu Ying Ti Yan (母婴体验=mother and baby experience), and Ma Yi Tong Yao (蚂蚁童谣=ant nursery rhyme). The domain can be used in a variety of business fields.

RRPX.com sold for $939. RRPX.cn is an education provider founded in 1999. RRPX is the acronym for Ren Ren Pei Xun (人人培训=training for everyone), the title of the website. As you can see, RRPX is much shorter to remember than the fully spelled out name Ren Ren Pei Xun.

QRYX.com sold for $900. QRYX.com seems to be developed already and the domain also matches the site title Qing Ren You Xi (情人游戏=lover’s game). However, the bottom of the home page says “This Domain Name is Possibly For Sale” so the content may be just placeholder. QRYX.cn is for sale at 5000 yuan or about $700.

LBCW.com sold for $875. LBCW.cn offers finance and taxation services. Unfortunately, the domain does not match the site title – neither in English (Long Ben Taxation) nor Chinese (隆奔财税=Long Ben Cai Shui meaning grand and fast finance and taxation). LBT.com or LBCS.com would be a better upgrade possibility. LBCW.com.cn is for sale at 999 yuan or about $140.

CRDF.com sold for $825. CRDF.cn is a site operated by the company Si Wei Ke Ji (斯唯科技=this only, science and technology). The site title indicates it is related to Wechat-based selling. The domain does not match the name of the company. SWKJ.com would be a better upgrade possibility.

Long term, I’m positive about the future of 4L domains in corporate China.

Before the surge: .Com in March

Domain Name Wire - Thu, 07/09/2020 - 18:40

Registrars saw an uptick in new registrations in March, which turned into a flood in April.

ICANN has published the latest official data from Verisign (NASDAQ: VRSN) about the .com namespace. This registrar-by-registrar report covers March 2020.

This data gives the first inkling of increased demand for domains thanks to Covid-19, but the real surge began in April as companies quickly moved their businesses online. We’ll get that data next month.

Here’s how registrars did in terms of new .com registrations in March:

1. GoDaddy.com* (NYSE: GDDY) 990,805 (970,641 in February)
2. Namecheap Inc. 220,563 (203,248)
3. Tucows** (NASDAQ:TCX) 201,660 (189,784)
4. Endurance+ (NASDAQ: EIGI) 167,966 (174,972)
5. Alibaba (HiChina) 168,265 (91,190)
6. Google Inc. (NASDAQ: GOOGL) 144,355 (132,513)
7. Dynadot 105,006
8. Chengdu West 94,655 (61,674)
9. Wix (NASDAQ: WIX) 86,353 (75,407)
10. United Internet^ 71,767 (68,936)

Here’s the leaderboard of the top registrars in terms of total .com registrations under management as of the end of March 2020.

1. GoDaddy* 52,559,293 (52,296,013 in February)
2. Tucows** 12,781,969 (12,791,432)
3. Web.com++ 7,119,532 (7,121,051)
4. Endurance+ 6,888,632 (6,851,967)
5. Alibaba 5,787,345 (5,747,031)
6. United Internet^ 5,521,784 (5,512,155)
7. Namecheap 5,551,106 (5,431,296)
8. Xin Net Technology Corporation 3,746,993 (3,961,980)
9. Google 3,367,072 (3,282,713)
10. GMO 2,313,794 (2,304,518)

Many domain companies have multiple accreditations and I’ve tried to capture the largest ones. See the notes below.

* Includes GoDaddy, Wild West Domains and 123 Reg
** Includes Tucows, Enom, Ascio and EPAG

An update on the Chinese domain name market

Domain Name Wire - Thu, 07/09/2020 - 16:53

Chinese government releases domain name report.

I just read the “Internet and Domain Industry Report” (互联网域名产业报告) published in June this year and would like to share with you some of its highlights that may help you understand the Chinese domain market.

The report was written by the China Academy of Information and Communications Technology (CAICT) under the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology. Its website at CAICT.ac.cn also publishes reports in English, but unfortunately, this particular one is in Chinese only.

Last year the global domain registration market increased by 3.7% to 371 million domains. Compare it with China’s 4.2% growth to 51 million domains. This means China is growing faster than the rest of the world. The largest markets are U.S., China, and then Germany.

When you look at country extensions, the top 3 are .tk, .cn, and .de. .Tk is an anomaly. It belongs to Tokelau in South Pacific with a population of merely 1500 but features a large number of registered domains that are given away for free. If .tk is removed from the list, then .cn is clearly the biggest country extension in the world.

China scores three winners on the list of top 20 global domain registrars. So, if you are looking for a domain registrar based in China, check out Aliyun (Alibaba), West.cn, and Xinnet.

Focusing on China only, the top 10 extensions are cn, com, top, 中国 (IDN .china), icu, net, wang, xyz, club, and vip in that order. .中国 (IDN .china) was launched in 2010 but is still facing issues of recognition from users and support from general applications. In 2019, there were only 2 million .中国 domains, which accounted for 4% of the Chinese domain market.

Overall, the report paints a very bright future for the Chinese domain market.

Walmart registers defensive domains for its U.S. CEO, but…

Domain Name Wire - Thu, 07/09/2020 - 16:32

These domain registrations don’t make a lot of sense.

John Furner. Photo courtesy Walmart.

Walmart has registered over 20 domain names related to its Walmart U.S. CEO John Furner.

Companies make these sorts of “defensive” domain name registrations all the time, with the hope of keeping domains out of the hands of detractors. It’s mostly a futile effort.

For example, Intuit registered a bunch of domain names last year when it came under pressure for hiding the availability of its free filing option. But comedian Hasan Minhaj found another derogatory domain to use.

That’s the problem: no matter what names you protect, there are always others that someone can register.

Walmart registered these domains:

ceo-furner.com
ceo-j-furner.com
ceo-jfurner.com
ceo-john-furner.com
ceo-johnfurner.com
ceofurner.com
ceoj-furner.com
ceojfurner.com
ceojohn-furner.com
ceojohnfurner.com
j-furner-ceo.com
j-furner.com
j-furnerceo.com
jfurner-ceo.com
jfurner.com
jfurnerceo.com
john-furner-ceo.com
john-furner.com
johnfurner-ceo.com
johnfurner.com
johnfurnerceo.com

(Update: Jamie Zoch pointed out that Walmart also registered a lot of these names under the .CEO top level.domain.)

Yet it didn’t register obvious domains like JohnFurnerSucks.com. If someone wants to write something bad about Furner, it’s going to choose that domain instead of ceo-j-furner.com.

The timing of the registrations is curious, too. Furner was named to his current position last year. Why register these domains now? And why hasn’t Walmart registered the equivalent domains for its main CEO, Doug McMillon?

Is Furner about to be tapped for a promotion, or is something derogatory about him or Walmart about to come out?

Sedo syndicates brokerage service through domain name registrars

Domain Name Wire - Wed, 07/08/2020 - 15:01

SedoMLS Brokerage enables registrars to offer Sedo’s brokerage services when a domain isn’t listed for sale.

Sedo is now offering a brokerage service option through its SedoMLS service.

SedoMLS syndicates much of Sedo’s inventory through domain name registrars, allowing end users to buy domains directly at their registrar. SedoMLS Brokerage allows end users to hire Sedo to buy domain names they search for that are not listed for sale at Sedo.

Some registrars offer buy-side domain brokerage but many don’t have the capability in-house. SedoMLS brokerage lets them outsource this.

Sedo names four registrars that are using the brokerage service, but only one appears to have already implemented the feature. (Update: Fabulous and DirectNic rotate with other brokerage services. United-Domains has activated it on its .de site but not .com). When you search for an already-registered domain at Sav.com that is not listed for sale, Sav.com offers Sedo’s service. See the picture above for the user experience.

Customers apply for the brokerage service so that Sedo can qualify them. Then they pay a $69 fee and a 15% commission if the purchase is successful.

A product page for SedoMLS notes that SedoMLS partners earn 25% of Sedo’s commission. This is the first time I’ve seen this number made public, and I assumed they received 50% of the commission. However, SedoMLS partners can mark up MLS domains to increase their effective commissions.

15 end user domain sales led by .co

Domain Name Wire - Wed, 07/08/2020 - 14:23

Here are domain names purchased by end users over the past week.

Sedo’s top sale over the past week was a .co domain name for $28,000. The top .com was Olema.com for $15,000. It’s not every week that a .co bests .com, but such is the randomness of domain sales sometimes!

Here’s a list of some of the end user domain name sales from the past week. You can review previous end user sales lists here.

Circa.co $28,000 – It’s not apparent who bought this domain yet, but it’s clearly an end user sale at this price.

Olema.com $15,000 – Olema Pharmaceuticals is a preclinical biotechnology company that has raised over $6 million in funding. This was the top reported .com sale on Sedo over the past week.

ILFA.com €9,700 – International Legal Finance Association, which bills itself as “The global voice of commercial legal finance.”

Velocity.ai $5,700 – Velocity by Alex is an “AI-infused data analytics” tool. The company forwards it to the product page at AlexInc.com/Velocity.

AirSchool.com $5,500 – The domain name forwards to Plutwo.com, which is a platform for teaching online courses. I’m a bit confused as to if Plutwo bought the domain because Whois for the two domains shows two different countries.

Marathon.ie €5,000 – Marathon, an investment management firm based in London that is focused on institutional clients, bought the domain. It forwards it to Marathon.co.uk.

TechDog.com $4,999 – Tech Dog is an electronic handheld training device for dogs.

SureLocal.com $3,835 – A new service out of Scottsdale, Arizona, that enables businesses to offer curbside pickup services. This service is useful in our current era of “contactless” interactions.

CloudSphere.com $3,500 – CloudSphere is a software company that offers a “Cloud Governance Platform” that enables enterprises and cloud service providers to simplify and optimize cloud migration, management, and governance.

Comserv.com €3,400 – Comserv Wireless is a communications and safety equipment supplier based in Memphis, Tennessee. It specializes in sales, service, and rentals of two-way radios.

FineWinesDirect.co.uk £3,100 – Forwards to FineWineDirect.co.uk, an online ordering and subscription service for wine and champagne products in the UK. This domain appears to be a defensive registration for the plural spelling of its main website.

Enjoy.ly $2,750 – Enjoy.ly is a Norwegian travel site. It’s choice of domain name is perplexing, but at least it brands as its full domain name.

DigitalDetox.de €2,000 – Forwards to DanielaOtto.com, a website for a German scholar who wrote a book on digital detoxing. This book is the first German-language work on the subject.

AbGroup.de €2,000 – A Berlin real estate group that called AB Group is developing this domain.

Minora.com $2,000 – This domain was bought by Cilor GBR, a German jewelry retailer specializing in engagement rings and wedding bands. I’m not sure what it will use the domain for.

June’s top domain name news stories

Domain Name Wire - Wed, 07/08/2020 - 13:16

Top stories from the domain name business in June 2020.

Here’s a look back at what happened in the domain name business last month. These were five of the top stories on Domain Name Wire:

1. Intel and Metlife terminate their top level domains – Two more big companies have bowed out of the new top level domain program.

2. Registrars: remove phone numbers from Whois – A plea to domain name registrars to save their customers from annoying phone calls, texts and spam emails…

3. Big news: GoDaddy starts redacting Whois information – …speaking of which, GoDaddy has begun masking most information in Whois. It’s now trying to sell customers on protecting their domains from theft instead of buying Whois privacy, which is no longer needed. In case you’re wondering, here’s how spammers find domains to mine.

4. GoDaddy plans layoffs and is closing Austin offices – The pandemic hasn’t been as bad as expected for GoDaddy. However, it’s still laying off a lot of employees and reorganizing outbound sales. Its do-it-for-me social media product has been hit especially hard.

5. Why this odd domain received 227 bids at auction – Usage of these seemingly-random characters might hint at the bidding activity.

Are these domains unstoppable? – I interview Brad Kam, co-founder of Unstoppable Domains, about the pros and cons of its alt-root domains and if there are downsides to “uncensorable” domains.

Security report names domain registrar – Eric Poyton, a security researcher with Awake, discusses his company’s findings of a malware network in which offending domains were all registered through one ICANN-accredited registrar.

Stealing the keys to the internet – Ryan Estrada discusses his crime-caper podcast about ICANN as well as an expired domain story.

The Great Domain Theft – The owner of Tobacco.com talks about how he got the stolen domain back.

The Handshake alternative – Mike Carson explains the registry service he’s creating for Handshake.

OneWord.Domains adds more top level domains and features

Domain Name Wire - Tue, 07/07/2020 - 18:00

Domain discovery site adds more TLDs and monetization features.

I’m having fun watching OneWord.Domains develop.

Steven Tey developed the site to help people find available one word domain names. You can listen to an interview with him in DNW Podcast #287.

Tey, a student, has incorporated feedback from users and is testing various monetization strategies.

For example, recently-added top level domain names are behind a paywall. It’s a modest fee and some people are signing up. But the model I like more is that domain registries can pay an annual fee to whitelist their domain. For $500, they can move it in front of the paywall. .To has been whitelisted.

Registries can choose where registration links go. For example, Donuts could whitelist a domain (or a bunch of them) and send buyers to Name.com, a registrar it owns.

OneWord.Domains also lets people feature their own one word domains for sale starting at just $10.

Verisign has taken action against COVID-related domains

Domain Name Wire - Tue, 07/07/2020 - 16:21

Domain name registry has taken action against domain names based on law enforcement requests.

Verisign (NASDAQ: VRSN), the registry for .com and .net domain names, has taken action against some domain names related to COVID-19.

In a blog post yesterday, Verisign noted that its pilot program with the U.S. government to crack down on online opioid sales is not unprecedented:

The protocols and experiences of this opioid-specific pilot program can also translate to other fronts in our efforts against DNS abuse. For example, Verisign is already working with law enforcement to apply a similar framework to combat domain name abuse related to scams that seek to exploit the COVID-19 crisis.

I reached out to Verisign to see if it has taken action against any domains related to COVID-19. A company spokesperson wrote:

Without getting into specifics or disclosing confidential information, yes, we have received requests from law enforcement agencies to take action against Covid-19 related domains, and yes, we have taken action.

The question of which party — the host, the domain registrar, or the domain registry — should “remove” a site from the web is an unsettled debate. Verisign takes action based on valid court orders, but “trusted notifier” programs such as the opioid pilot program have led to consternation with free speech groups such as EFF.

GoDaddy files patent applicaton for “recommending domains from free text”

Domain Name Wire - Mon, 07/06/2020 - 15:24

Domain registrar wants to patent ways to suggest domains based on various non-search data.

GoDaddy (NYSE: GDDY) has filed U.S. Patent and Trademark application number 16/235333 (pdf) for “recommending domains from free text”.

The application describes a way to generate domain name suggestions based on data and free text rather than a user searching for keywords.

From the application:

The disclosed embodiments automatically recommend domain names by making use of data provided by the users: 1) during creation, by the user, of a web hosting or other account; and/or 2) mining and making use of the relevant data within the content of files within the repository. The creation of a hosting account may include collecting user input from the user, using a graphical user interface (GUI) and one or more GUI components displayed on a client computer. This user input may include the user’s name, email address, physical address (including street address, city, county, state, country, etc.), username, title for the repository or collection of files (e.g., a website title), description of the repository or collection (e.g., a website description), any other sentence of notes associated with the repository, a business category associated with the user’s business, etc.

Once the user hosting account is established, the user may upload the files to the repository, or otherwise transfer the files through the network for storage. The disclosed system may then use the provided user input, and/or content within the provided files, to automatically identify the main concept from a collection of identified keyword within the rich amount of text contents, while eliminating other irrelevant concepts. These irrelevant concepts may include, as non-limiting examples, stop words, grammatically incorrect phrases, and terms or phrases common to all websites (e.g., “about us”).

Thus, the disclosed system determines how to generate meaningful domain name recommendations based on relevant concepts, which also remove irrelevant keywords or phrases, thereby providing one or more domain names that are shorter and easier for the user to remember.

GoDaddy has a number of domain search and discovery patents, including one that uses image data.

The application was filed on December 28, 2020 and the USPTO published it last week.

Here’s why 89CP .com sold for $5,000

Domain Name Wire - Mon, 07/06/2020 - 13:33

Kassey Lee explains why this domain is valuable.

I regularly listen to the Josh.co Daily Podcast to get daily updates on the domain market. In a recent episode, Josh mentioned the sale of 89CP .com for a very strong price of $5,000.

Josh is right when he says 8 and 9 are good numbers and C and P good letters. Here’s a detailed explanation.

8 and 9 have no intrinsic Chinese meanings. However, 8 rhymes with many Pinyin words such as Fa (发=making a fortune), Ba (吧=bar), and Ba (爸=father). 9 also rhymes with many Pinyin words such as Jiu (久=long time), Jiu (救=rescue), and Jiu (酒=wine). Together, 8 and 9 can become Fa (发=making a fortune) and Jiu (久=long time) to mean “making a fortune for a long time”.

On the other hand, CP is an acronym for more than 300 Pinyin phrases, such as Cai Piao (彩票=lottery ticket), Cang Pin (藏品=collector’s items), and Che Pai (车牌=license plate). CP is often seen as “lottery ticket” by investors.

When you put 89 and CP together, they match very well, giving you the meaning “making a fortune in lottery ticket for a long time”. So, 89CP .com can be used to build a lottery site.

Now, I must reiterate the fact that numbers have no intrinsic Chinese meanings and an acronym can stand for hundreds of Pinyin phrases. This means I can give 89CP a different meaning, such as Bai Jiu Cai Pu (百酒菜谱=hundred kinds of wines in the menu) if I want to use it to run a restaurant.

Still, a domain made up of number and acronym is not easy to remember despite the meaning creation process. If the end user had a bigger budget, I would certainly recommend getting the 4-letter domain BJCP .com in place of 89CP.com.

Seeing the good sale of 89CP .com, you may get excited and want to invest in 4-character domains. Wait! Make sure you look at the daily sales of four character domains reported by Shortname.com to get a dose of reality.

Decoding recent numeric domain name sales

Domain Name Wire - Fri, 07/03/2020 - 13:19

Kassey Lee investigates recent numeric domain name sales.

Numeric domains up to 4 digits (4N) are actually used by Chinese companies. However, those beyond 4N are not often found in use but mostly traded among investors. In this article, I’ll review some 4N domains sold in the three months between March and May this year.

6115.com sold for $50,000. 6115 .com.cn is a B2B portal which claims to have more than 10,000 daily visitors looking for business partnership. The site title is Zhong Guo Bai Ye Lun (中国百页轮网=China louver wheel network) but it does not seem to be related to the numeric domain. Often, I see numeric domains in use but no Chinese meanings are given. 6115.com could be a good upgrade for the company.

2633.com sold for $37,000. 2633.com.cn provides tax and accounting services. The company was founded in 2003 and currently has about 50 employees, including professional accountants and business registration specialists. 2633.com would be a nice upgrade. On the other hand, 2633.cn is currently listed for sale at 150,000 yuan or about $21,000.

3049.com sold for $33,600. 3049.cn provides data servers, SSL certificates, domain registrations, and other IT services from 15 sites outside China. The numeric domain matches the company’s name 3049 Shu Ju (3049数据= 3049 data). With its global reach and current size, the company should benefit from upgrading to 3049.com.

1740.com sold for $20,508 and is already listed for sale at 218,000 yuan or about $31,000. This would be a decent flip if the domain can be sold within a short time. 1740 rhymes with Yi Qi Si Ying (一起思赢=think to win together).

6439.com sold for $25,505 an is already listed for sale at 238,000 yuan or about $33,000. This would be a decent flip if the domain can be sold within a short time. 6439 rhymes with Le Shi Xian Jiu (乐世仙酒=angelic wine providing a generation of pleasure).

0778.com sold for $64,000 and parked. 0778.com.cn is listed for sale at 23,600 yuan or about $3,300. 0778.cn seems to be for sale too, indicating the number as the dialing code for Hechi (河池), a city in the Guangxi region. 0778 rhymes with Ni Qu Qu Ba (你去去吧=please go, with implication to do something).

12 end user domain name sales including 6 ccTLDs

Domain Name Wire - Thu, 07/02/2020 - 20:03

A food manufacturer, a travel site, and a wallpaper company bought domain names.

ccTLD domain purchases staked their claim among end users this week. Half of the end user sales at Sedo I uncovered were ccTLDs.

Here’s a list of some of the end user domain name sales from the past week. You can review previous end user sales lists here.

Encrypt.org €6,500 – This excellent domain now forwards to the site for Project Millipede, which promotes technologies that enable privacy.

DoubleDipper.com $6,995 – Hilton Whole Green Millers Ltd bought this domain. It is a food product manufacturer in Canada that is best known for its peanut butter substitute, WowButter. Will this be the name of a new product?

PaperPal.com €6,500 – Cactus Communications bought this domain. It bills itself as a science communications firm. Beyond that, it’s hard to understand what it does other than use buzzwords. I think it’s like a PR company for science. This domain might be for a client.

AutoKredite.de €4,999 – Forwards to AutoKredit.de – a website in German for those seeking financing, loans and other financial assistance for car purchases and more. This appears to be a defensive registration for this alternative spelling of their main website.

Point.me $4,800 – Point Me is a section of BoardingArea, a site for frequent flyers. The domain is forwarded to PointmetothePlane.boardingarea.com.

PVH.de €4,500 – This high-value 3-letter .de domain forwards to PrinzvHessen.com, a new umbrella brand for tourist and gastronomic sub-brands of the Hesse Culture Foundation.

LustHome.com €3,850 – Wallpaper Warehouse, an e-commerce site for wallpaper and related home decor products. This is probably a home decor brand.

FSLV.com $3,500 – This domain was bought by Brookfield Properties, a global real estate services company that manages and leases one of the largest retail portfolios in the United States. This domain could be for one of their new or existing shopping center properties.

PoolUeberDachung.com $3,125 – Forwards to DesJoyAux.de, a German pool and pool cover builder and manufacturer.

MeinSquare.de €2,500 – Forwards to EasySquare.com, an app for mobile devices designed to simplify all processes and business dealings related to real estate.

Super.com.mx €2,500 – Forwards to SuperCarniceria.com, an online grocery and fresh food delivery service in Mexico.

Pos-Service.de €2,000 – Forwards to PosService.de. This is the website for POS Service GmbH, a German POS and IT solutions provider.

I recently found a .com where the matching .cn is already developed. Because the second level domain is registered in another extension, does it mean I have a potential end user buyer for the .com?

The domain is EaseToy .com. It was dropped and can be registered for only $10 as of this writing. The domain contains two common words totaling 7 letters. ExpiredDomains.net indicates the matching .cn is registered and dotDB reports 26 similar domains. Because I don’t judge a domain by its look, I decided to do my research and visited EaseToy .cn.

At a glance, EaseToy .cn looks like a genuine website. It has product info, a news section, and even a picture of the reception desk of the company. However, there is something unusual.

First, the page title is wrong. It shows a media company from the northern part of China but the company info indicates a molding machine manufacturer from the southern part of China.

The Chinese language version used is wrong. The contents are written in traditional Chinese which is used mainly in Hong Kong, Macau, and Taiwan but not in mainland China where simplified Chinese is the standard.

The domain’s name (“toy”) does not match the line of business (“machine”) of the company.

Most puzzling are links found at the bottom of the home page which apparently will take you to some adult sites. This just does not make sense for a machine manufacturer.

My puzzle was cleared when I pasted some of the contents into Google search, which led me to the real site at TWZYJX .com (Taiwan Zan Yang Ji Xie). TWZYJX .com is real but EaseToy .cn is only a copy.

Therefore, it is unlikely EaseToy .cn will upgrade to EaseToy .com. Further analysis using dotDB and Google search could not uncover any potential users of EaseToy.com, so I decided not to acquire EaseToy .com.

My experience highlights the importance of research. Also, when investigating sites that aren’t in your language, you may want to get help from someone who speaks the language.
