China is buying up the Internet
Author: EM @ KING.NET
I’ve got this headline from Business Insider “China is buying up the Internet” who detailed why domain name is an excellent investment opportunity. And domain entrepreneurs/investors calling it as “Chinese Domains” selling short letters or numbers dot com domain names.
What is hot in domain industry today? If you have some four letters dot com, it is selling like a hot pancake. You can easily sell it from $300 up to four figures right now. I actually sold $20K of my own four letter dot com last September 2014. Check it from the domains I sold over the years.

In Y2014 the selling price is irrelevant some sold for $50 up to six figures for an exceptional domains. The majority you will be able to get it around $200 for less competition. The trajectory of price is continue to rise up as an alternative investment. You can check previous sales posted at DNJournal.com and Namebio.com websites.
The average price I’ve seen in the auction is $500 or more. I’ve tested it using a forum auction setup auctioning OYDD.com posted here. There is NO RESERVE AUCTION, so the highest bidder will take the domain.
If you have the opportunity to own a four letters dot com domain name at affordable price range for you to acquire. Buy it.
What about the four numbers dot com? This domains falls under the “Chinese Domains” category, they love numbers domain name in dot com extension. The price in four to six figures asking price. I’ve seen six numbers domains e.g. NNNNNN dot com sold for at least $1000 in a public auction. You can’t hand register four to six numbers dot com anymore, you’re best bet to acquire this through public auction or after markets.
The market still young, five, six, seven and eight numbers dot com are still affordable. Don’t forget to invest wisely, check your own due care and due diligence.
