    Giuseppe Graziano is the founder and CEO of GGRG, a domain brokerage company that concentrates on short, liquid domain names; a category that has been extremely popular over the past couple of years, thanks to China’s continued involvement in the market.

    Today, Giuseppe is releasing his latest report into the liquid domains market, covering data from the third quarter of 2016. With contributions from Estibot, DomainIQ and ShortNames.com, the report shows readers what is happening in a number of short domain categories such as two-letter .COM’s and two-number .COM’s.

    This report does an excellent job in summarizing the changes that have occurred during the third quarter of 2016, with clear and concise statistics for eight categories of domains that show data such as:
    • The percentage of domain names that are developed
    • The country with the largest ownership
    • The quarter on quarter fifth-percentile figure
    • The public sales volume
    There are a few interesting headlines from the report. The first is that during the third quarter of 2016, over 1% of all liquid category domains (around 6,000) were transferred to Chinese ownership, with the USA and Europe losing 0.2% of ownership. According to Giuseppe, if this continues, China will own over 50% of all liquid domains by 2022.

    The second headline is that China completely dominates numeric domain names. This is no secret, but to see it documented here really shows how dominant China is in that market.

    This twelve-page report will be available to download for free from GGRG.com, or through Giuseppe’s newsletter, which will be published later on today.

    So you think the Chinese have understood that if they own all the domain names available then they control the Internet ?

    That should have been 'Do you think ?' not 'So you think?'

    Sounds the same as what they are doing with prime physical real estate around the world.

    Don't worry they'll be selling them back to us at 10x the price they paid for them.

    Good insight. Well somewhat predictable with 1 billion people.
