NamesCon Session: “All About Chinese Numeric Domains”

I have not sold many numeric domain names, but I have witnessed the rise in values of numeric domain names during the last few years. I believe much of the rise in value of these domain names has been fueled by Chinese investment in that sector.

Mitch Watkins from TLD Registry emailed me this afternoon to share some information about the Chinese Domaining Masterclass that is being offered at NamesCon. One of the sessions that was just announced is called All About Chinese Numeric Domains, and for people interested in numeric domain names, this is a good session to attend.

Here’s what this session entails:

This 60-minute session offers valuable insight to numeric-specific domains, and why they are so highly valued in China. This session also offers participants a chance to learn about how to utilize numeric domains, how to spin valuable numeric domains, and get the best ROI on them from the Chinese market. This session will decode numbers 0-9 and the cultural and linguistic tricks to combine them into valuable and meaningful strings, and give you a better idea of what numbers are selling, and why.

These sessions will be held daily during NamesCon in TLD Registry’s reserved Chinese Domaining Masterclass classroom (Ashton room #2, on the second floor of the Tropicana Hotel). This classroom has a seat capacity of 48, and TLD Registry will be holding back 18 of those 48 tickets at the TLD Registry booth for anyone to pick up on first come, first serve basis). The sessions don’t cost anything additional to attend, aside from your NamesCon conference pass.

As I mentioned in my original article about the Chinese Domaining Masterclass, if any 3 out of the 4 sessions are attended, you’ll get your own 100-page binder curriculum, which covers everything in the presentation sessions (and more).

Here’s the schedule for this particular session:

Sunday, January 11
11:25 – 12:25 Thinking Beyond the 8: All About Chinese Numeric Domains

  1. The chinese are spamming any names of value, and any westernized party who does not have grasp of such characters, nor possession of them, does not have much of a chance to acquire them without getting in over their head. A crash course is not enough knowledge to even begin to fathom what an investment, and risk such numerics will pose an uneducated investor.

    • I am probably not a buyer of 3n names at their current valuation levels, but I still think it would be interesting to learn about what is driving the market.

      You never know when a good opportunity will present itself.

      I don’t think I would pay extra for this, but it’s something of interest when there is no additional cost to attend.

  2. Some entrepreneurial chinese marketplace or broker should provide a service for dumb Americans like myself that “translates” what your domains could mean . . . that marketplace would get some love I’m guessing.
