I always get a charge out of listening to the Domain Sherpas. This week’s show was no exception. I take stock in the unique perspectives on domain industry news and trends provided by the guest “Sherpas,” even if I don’t always agree.
At about 54 minutes into the video there is welcome discussion about recent and potentially far-reaching IDN email developments, especially as it relates to Google’s decision to support fully IDN email addresses. There was also good mention of ChineseLandRush.com by one of the Sherpas. That’s a site developed and managed by TLD Registry Limited, a client and operator of the Dot Chinese Online (.在线) and Dot Chinese Website (.中文网) new top level domains.
ChineseLandRush.com is designed to help domain investors register great Chinese IDNs without having to know a word of Chinese. All names shown on the fresh version 2.0 of the site are General Availability (GA) names anyone can snap up on a first-come, first-served basis at regular GA prices via the many registrars offering registration of these IDNs.
Each day the list is hand-refreshed by a team of Chinese experts. No auto-name spinning bots here—just real people throwing out real-life name suggestions by popular categories.
I’ve had the pleasure of working on the ChineseLandRush.com project alongside my colleagues at TLD Registry, and we’ll continue to develop that tool further in the quest to make Dot Chinese Online (.在线) and Dot Chinese Website (.中文网) the easiest new IDN gTLDs for domain investors anywhere to work with on a consistent basis.
