Would these domains make good upgrades for Chinese companies?
One of my interests is to find end users in China for .com domains as upgrades. In this article, I’ll look at some 4-character domains sold in April that could be valuable to companies in China. This methodology might help you when you think about selling domains to Chinese companies.
Note that I always check both .cn and .com.cn in my end user research. This is because even though .cn has about 9 times the registration volume of .com.cn, there are still many companies using .com.cn.
FFP2.com sold for $6,492. FFP2 .com.cn forwards to 9175QX .com, which looks like a betting portal with lots of flashy links. In this case, FFP2.com is unlikely a potential upgrade for FFP2.com.cn.
QS88.com sold for $3,159 and is already listed on the LVMI.com marketplace with a BIN price of 80,000 yuan (or about $12,000). QS may be an acronym for Quan Sheng (全胜=total victory), Qiao Shou (巧手=skillful hands), and Qing Song (轻松=effortless). 8 rhymes with Fa (发=making a fortune).
JS52.com sold for $2,247. JS52 .cn links to JS123-1 .com which is a betting site. In this case, JS52.com is unlikely a potential upgrade for JS52 .cn.
XJ33.com sold for $1,230 and is already listed with a BIN price of 28,880 yuan (about $4,300). XJ33 .cn appears to be a betting site but the brand may be Bet365, so XJ33.com is unlikely a potential upgrade for XJ33 .cn.
383K.com sold for $1,100. 383K .com.cn forwards to YA022 .com which looks like a lottery site, so 383K.com is unlikely a potential upgrade for 383K .com.cn.
ZZ22.com sold for $1,051. ZZ22.cn is a manufacturer of electronic devices such as inductors, electronic transformers, and filters. However, its brand is Fu He (富合) which apparently is unrelated to ZZ22.cn. Therefore, ZZ22.com is unlikely a potential upgrade for ZZ22.cn.
In these examples, I could not find any genuine end users in China for the .com domains as upgrades. However, it still should be helpful by showing that a developed .cn or .com.cn does not guarantee that there are desired end users for your .com domains. Further research is needed.
