    I don't know off the top of my head. End user research is the key. At least that's what I do when acquiring a domain. If the exact name is already used on an extension in a commercial way, then my .com domain will be valuable. That's how I do it anyway. Actually, I don't invest in Pinyin domains, because I want to sell to the entire world including China.

    What about the term or word "tsi", does that mean something?

    Because a few weeks ago I wanted to register a 5-letter domain name that contained the word "tsi" and was still available.

    But now the domain name has been registered by someone else.

    What do you think? Does in Chinese "tsi" mean something?

    I have already discussed this in another thread here

    Thanks.
    Ref the whole world that's a very big pond that is developed @ AB&C demographics China India & Africa have a lot of slack to go, China will probably soon build its own tribal technological great wall ensuring its culture endures, the west will follow the money and many pinyin generics will become superstrate terms.
    I would be happy with a market stall of 1.5b customers.
    DCEP is a massive wake up call I noted someone in the know reg DCEPexchange com listed on Sedo how they managed that only a well connected official could tell, that is if they use DCEP as the official digital currency. Interesting times...

    Not Pinyin. I don't know.

    Too early to tell if it'll become a dominant force in the digital world.

    Hello Kassey,

    Chinese domainers were not active last week (On Namejet and Dropcatch). Is there a holiday in China?

    I don't know. The most important event of the year is the Chinese New Year which is 1/25.

    Really you surprise me, "DCEP" or a possible variation is China plc this will eventually lead to dominant gratis exchanges competing in open markets. IMO exchanges will be the mass public investment interfaces. April or May will see fundamental changes take place. "Time is information we don't have"

    It's 3-pin, but I can't think of a meaningful Chinese phrase for it. There is a similar phrase I found in Baidu: 酒是色, which has to do with wine and sex. https://zhidao.baidu.com/question/555234168335634452.html

    Personally I find Baidu search results difficult to fathom. Find it interesting that China plc allows search results related to gaming to show or is this just in international searches ? e.g. PukeZhibo com reg by Alibaba the algo gives the same rating to ZhiboPuke. Gaming is tightly restricted.
    DianziJingji 电子竞技 (Esports) has high search returns Although I guess most teens would use the superstate word esports obviously, the com had gone but I covered the the ai (love) as it might be appropriate. I guess one can but throw bread on the water when one is not seeped in the culture ...

    Be careful DianJing also means Esports IMO it's the superstrate terms that give you a small (experience) advantage. Just seems unusual to me that you can hand reg CasinoBet/s (com) in pinyin or Casino247 perhaps it's down to the tight regulation as Chinese domainers are way ahead of the game

    @Kassey Lee

    Recently acquired FCKC.com, do you see any good 4PIN meaning?

    Also acquired Nijigen.com, which is Japanese for 2D or Anime Comics and Games (二次元), but is also taken in .cn probably do it's importance in the niche. Is it common for Chinese to own Japanese .com domains?

    Acronym domains up to 4L have real end users in corporate China. Just need to do end user research to see if it represents any existing company using 4-pin name, such as checking the equivalent .cn and .com.cn, and throwing FCKC into Baidu search to see if there is any match. Domain awareness in Japan is very low and consumers are told to use the search box instead, so I don't expect much selling domains to Japan.

    @Kassey Lee


    I learned that KC--->科创 i.e Science and Technology (Kē chuàng)


    Lots of companies use this in their name. KC ending make sense for a tech company?

    I often come across Ke Ji (科技 = science and technology) in company names instead. 科创 probably means "Sci-Tech innovation" (see https://baike.baidu.com/item/科创板/23274864)

    @Kassey Lee Star Market(http://www.sse.com.cn/star/) is actually really interesting, it appears to me that China is trying to compete with the NASDAQ.

    Also when you do a baidu search of 科创集团, there are a ton of companies using the term in their name. Many ending with KC, in 3L, 4L and even 5L .com's and .cn.

    I've also done further research and checked Chinese AIC websites to make regional company searches with the term 科创, with each region I've checked so far producing over a 100 results. I'd recommend checking these out for anyone researching their CHIP 4L.com domains once they've ascertained realistic business name use. It will give you an understanding of just how many companies actually use your pinyin term of course...make your search in simplified Chinese.



    You can also check out:

    https://www.qichacha.com/


    It has a company search. Searching 科创, shows over 300k businesses with it included in their name.

    I'm not surprised at all. The importance of China in the domain space was hinted to me a few years ago when Namescon scheduled its online auction with consideration of the Chinese New Year.

    Wow, you are good! I didn't know that. Yes, you are right. There are many companies using 科创 in their name. Thank you.

    This is a fantastic tool! It evens give you the contact phone. Now I have another tool in my end user research toolbox. Thank you very much.
