Check them out! The new sliders were created in hopes of better communicating to the common person about the general process of registering domain names and how to register a DCO or DCW domain name. The infographic slider explains the registration process and sales from ICANN down to the registrant. The registrar slider illustrates the various partnering Chinese registrars associated with DCO and DCW. The WHOIS slider links directly to TLD Registry’s in-house WHOIS search that supports Chinese characters. We hope these sliders resolve FAQs common to a person unfamiliar with the domain registration process. Remember to connect with us on Weibo to always be up to date...

TLD Registry's Simon Cousins Interviewed on Domain Name Wire Podcast

Posted by on Nov 13, 2014 in Domain Name Investing | 0 comments

In the November 10th episode of the popular Domain Name Wire Podcast, editor in chief Andrew Allemann spoke with TLD Registry’s CMO, Simon Cousins about the flourishing Chinese domain name market. Andrew mentions that Domain Holdings released their sales report for the past quarter, which states that a quarter of their sales were to buyers in China. Many top registries and registrars are crediting a large portion of their sales to the Chinese market. In the discussion between Simon and Andrew, Simon goes over myths about creating Chinese domain names, how Chinese people currently surf the web and how they will in the future, and what kind of Chinese domain names are considered premium domains to Chinese people. Most are aware that China has the world’s largest national population. However Simon reminds us that when looking at the Chinese market, investors must have a global outlook. Thriving and financially successful Chinese speaking people are not only in China’s mainland, but in fact living in almost every country of the world. For example, New York City is the home of the largest population of Chinese people who live outside of China. Numerals are a key feature to understand valuable Chinese domain names. In the Alexa Top 100 websites, 15 are numeric domains. The nuances of numbers in Chinese culture is detailed and opens up a market for profitability. Puns, symbolism, or references can all be derived from what seems to be a “random” combination of numbers to a non-Chinese speaker. In the podcast, Simon gives examples of each numeric nuance, showing the vast branches of semantics that emanate from combination of sounds and usage of numbers. Andrew and Simon then segue into how people in China use the web based on culture and language differences.  Referring to the 650 million Internet users in China, Simon states, “a portion of those are comfortable working with typing English letters and a much larger proportion are not comfortable working with English”. People who are not capable of using “QWERTY” keyboards go through portal sites, such as 163.com or hao123.com, that list thousands of different Chinese sites so people can simply click through the web. Simon also explains the difficulties that Chinese people stumble on when they are forced to type on keywords. Switching from English to Chinese and vice versa can be “universally annoying”. TLD Registry and other registries are taking away that annoyance with the provision of fully-Chinese domains. Non-English speakers around the world can now type in their own language in the address bar.  The availability of non-English domains, expands the Chinese domain market by attracting the whole Chinese speaking population. It no longer limits the Chinese domain market to Chinese...

TLD Registry's current print advertising campaign in IoN Magazine

Posted by on Oct 12, 2014 in Uncategorized | 1 comment

IoN Magazine, standing for “Internet of Names”, is the first-ever glossy domain name industry magazine. The inaugural issue was released on June 26, 2014 coinciding with the ICANN 50 conference in London. The premise of the publication is to provide news, opinion, interviews, and analysis about the current ICANN conference - it even includes a schedule of events, local restaurant guide, and an entertainment feature with humor, cartoons, and even crosswords. Spearheaded by the DotAsia Organization and domain name industry enterprises, IoN offers a great opportunity for companies in the domain industry to collectively share information about initiatives, data, and announcements. In the note from the editor and industry leader, Kieren McCarthy states that the idea to create IoN Magazine was driven by the recent general availability of 200-plus new gTLDs that are expanding the internet community. TLD Registry took advantage of the IoN launch to initiate a new series of full-page advertisements, “The End of ASCII” - dedicated to bringing awareness to a digital divide manifested from the lack of universal access (and partly solved by our fully-Chinese domain names!) Our ad in the first issue of IoN shows a young boy looking at a mobile device, representing a typical rural Chinese child using the most common method to access the internet -- through mobile devices. The ASCII (English) requirements for inputting domain names has made internet access challenging for users such as our boy. With the new widespread availability of fully-Chinese domain names -- such as our Dot Chinese Online and Dot Chinese Website domains -- our boy has now scaled the digital divide. He can write the Chinese characters for his favorite cartoon character, for example, with his fingertip, and those characters are the domain name for the website he seeks. The message is clear and imminent. ASCII is not helpful for the next billion internet users. Fully native language IDNs are, on the other hand, enablers. The Internet is often portrayed as a universal platform where the communication of ideas are easily accessible and immediately transferred globally. If this is true, then why does a digital divide still exist? An English speaking Internet user understands the concept that domain names have correspondence to the landing page. For example, “internetregistry.info” is going to bring the browser to an Internet Registry page. This concept does not exist with Chinese Internet users. Because IDNs were not initially implemented, Chinese websites are often a consolidation of lucky numbers or random ASCII characters. Even with an ASCII based phonetic system, the Chinese language is too complex to give a specific meaning to ASCII domain names. The digital divide limits communities that do not have an ASCII character based language, preventing...
