    What are your opinions on this extension? Is it worth to invest?
    ------------------------------------------------------
    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    .li is the Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for Liechtenstein. The .li TLD was created in 1993. The domain is sponsored and administered by the University of Liechtenstein in Vaduz.[1] Registration of .li domain names used to be managed by SWITCH, administrator of Switzerland's .ch ccTLD. In February 2013, SWITCH discontinued its .li registration service for private customers, delegating it to a number of recognized partner firms.[2]

    There are no requirements to apply for the extension. Registrations of internationalized domain names have been accepted since March 2004.[3]

    Domain hacks and vanity usage
    Many Long Island organizations and companies have adopted the .li TLD as a domain hack.[4]

    As -li is a diminutive ending in Swiss German (Standard German -lein), many Swiss companies[which?] register an additional, or alternative, .li domain for their businesses and services.

    In Russian, -li is a verbal ending of past tense plural form. That is why some Russian-oriented sites use it as a part of the site name with the verbal stem before the dot.

    Emojli, a messaging app created by Tom Scott and Matt Gray, uses the domain emoj.li as its official webpage.

    I must say that i would prefer .ly. Definitely. More space for hacks is the strongest reason to pick .ly and not .li.

    It's still an unknown. I do wish I had picked up some good NNN while they were available. I have the number 589.

    Compare NNN.li available 01JAN16 to NNN.li remaining 12AUG16 in the following:

    The very best 2-pin pinyin words seem to be going too.

    Not much interest in .li when I posted here

    How about LLL.li or LLLL.li, I see that almost NNN.li are only acquired by Chinese, they're not be interested in elsewhere, right?
