    CCCC .COMs with no vowels (A, E, I, O, U) or V are generally the most valuable in China.

    But ‘Z’ is really welcome in China, because “ZhongGuo” is China in Chinese PinYin.
    And Chinese like “Middle” very much, “Zhong” means “middle” in Chinese PinYin. Many many Chinse company name has “Zhong”…

    The other most popular letter might be X, Y, S, C, …

    We Chinese like to divide the 4L into two parts, the first two letters and the last two letters.
    If the first two is Big city of China, it will be very welcome, Such as: BJ(BeiJing), SH(ShangHai), GD(GuangDong)…
    If the last two letters is some kind of business, such as: LC(LiCai, finance), ZX(online), KJ(Tech), SJ(Data), which would be very welcome.

    And also “CN” is very popular in China

    No Chinese “words(PinYin)” starts from U, V, O and I, but there ARE some words start from A & E, so A, E is not very bad for Chinese market.

    According to DotCN, “The lowest price of Chinese premium LLLL.com (without a,e,i,o,u,V) is about $300USD now.” He is probably in the right ballpark and in recent times, seeing higher sales numbers for short .COMs all across the board.

    The above chart is based on 14 days sale, however, for the previous 4-5 days, the lowest prices averages to $650 - $750 at-least.

    Remember that the Chinese buyers are resellers too, it's not like all these LLLL's are only bought to be resold domestically in China.

    In this case you can. His post is almost identical to an earlier post of another member:
    Page 858 of 'The LLLL.com sales and discussion thread' contains this post if you would like to thank the original poster. This thread also contains lots more useful info about which letters and combos are liked by Chinese buyers.

    ACTUALLY the above may be a quote from a previous post here on NP.....but it's all actually plagiarized from an article written at this website discussing the value of 4 letter Chinese premium domains.

    Here: http://www.dnselect.com/value-of-letters-in-short-domains-chinese-market/

    Cheers

    lol

    well, although I can totally understand that it seems like a bad practice showing up knowledge that isn't yours, in truth what both users did were to 'spread' the knowledge

    since they gain absolutely nothing out of it -except maybe a few 'likes'- I'm totally ok with it and I actually wouldn't have known of those facts if OP hadn't created the thread in the first place

    There are 40+ Chinese Characters whose Pinyin begin with O.

    Example is 建瓯市, Jian'ou City in Fujian. JOLL.com would be a possible China GeoService Acronym.

    I would say A, E & O are semi-Chinese premium letters. Until domainers have an "unofficial" agreement that A, E & O are of (however limited) value in the Chinese context, these 3 letters will remain as anti-premium and priced as such.

    If you had read that article carefully you'd realize it credits dotCN, the NP member who made that original post. One and the same.

    This is very interesting. But do the Chinese actually use 2-letter province prefixes in LLLL.com/net?

    What about city prefixes? Are those used?

    Are there other 2-letter combos, besides those listed in the second post, that are popular in Chinese domains? Looking for a more comprehensive list.

    City and Province prefixes are used for sure.

    There's many other 2 letter combinations to consider. It can be family name instead of city, or just 1 letter instead of 2, simply B, not BJ, because it's hard to get BJ.
    Like @DotCN said there's so many interpretations of PinYin, that you need to be an expert to know certain combinations. But there's plenty even for not so popular letters.
