There are approximately 50 million ethnic Chinese people living outside of China’s mainland, which itself is home to nearly 1.4 billion Chinese. Ethnic Chinese people comprise 3.7% of the world’s population beyond China’s borders. Most of these consumers read, write and speak Chinese. Densely populated Chinese communities outside of China, oftentimes referred to as “Chinatowns,” are a good way of demonstrating the size of the global Chinese consumer base. Using fully-Chinese domain names, such as Dot Chinese Online (.在线) and Dot Chinese Website (.中文网), is a powerful and inexpensive method of reaching this vast demographic group of consumers. Chinese language domain names can be an exceptionally powerful and cost-effective way of promoting your product, service or message in Chinese language communities. Chinese language domain names are culturally relevant, linguistically correct, and commercially attractive. They can substantially enhance your SEO and positively influence an audience of global consumers.
