Chinese Buying Frenzy

The market for .com domain names has greatly heated-up in two areas:
1) numerical domains
2) Chinese single-character domains

Short (smaller) numbers have been selling strongly.  Chinese buyers are also snapping-up the .com form of Chinese character domains. Such domain names are more useful in Hong Kong, Singapore, Taiwan, Japan & elsewhere than .cn names.

Good single-character .com Chinese & Japanese names can still be purchased for under US$25,000 -- but not for long. There are only a few thousand such domains for the entire internet world. They provide their owners instant recognition, interest & authority. Some firms move or build their web home on the domains, others use them as forwarders to another (often country-specific) home address.
