Allow me to present some statistics:

On July 24th, I conducted a test on the .com zone by generating 50,000 random domain names. Out of this sample, roughly 15,000 were already claimed while the remaining 35,000 were unregistered.

Of those unclaimed domains, approximately 25% have since been registered. Given the size of the sample, the statistical error should not surpass 1-2%.

Interestingly, 580,000 Chinese domains were registered over the course of just 2.5 weeks. It seems that the Chinese are eager to claim any meaningful or aesthetically pleasing domain names that cater to their language and cultural patterns.

As such, any domains with even a hint of significance or beauty are likely to be snatched up before the end of the year.


To sum it up, TS was correct. I managed to register several MY***.com domain names with meaningful Chinese characters and premium letters. I saved a few for later but within a day, they were all taken.

Currently, only a few MY***.com domains with vowels and the letter "V" remain unclaimed by the Chinese. It's likely that those domains will soon be taken as well since they are not highly regarded by the Chinese market.

Based on how quickly the prices have risen for and the trend we've seen with 4N, 5N, and 6N domains, I predict that any Chinese 5L domain name will soon sell for a high price. In my opinion, it's only a matter of time before the demand for these domains surpasses the supply.


Chinese investors don't seem to have an interest in 5L domains that are easily readable, which means they are still available for registration. I recently compiled a long list of such domains.

However, there is currently a surge in registration for "premium" Chinese domain names. My personal opinion is that the Chinese market is so vast that it's impossible for them to fully utilize all the domains they register, which actually benefits English-speaking domains. As more and more domains get registered, the prices for classic, one or two-word domains will only continue to increase.

Interestingly, many domainers have also jumped on the Chinese bandwagon and shifted away from classic domains. This has led to an increase in the drop of dictionary words that can be registered for a minimal fee (while still having some value). It's a good time to expand one's domain portfolio at a reasonable cost.

It's worth noting that if someone had predicted 5 years ago that three-digit .com domains would sell for anywhere between 500k to 1kk, they would have been laughed at. However, now, it has become a reality in the current market.


Domains are rapidly becoming a financial instrument, with their value no longer being solely determined by the potential resale value. In my opinion, generic top-level domains (gTLDs) such as .com, .net, .org, and .info hold the most value and should be distributed in proportionate "precious metal" categories, much like platinum, gold, silver, and palladium.

Interestingly, there has been a recent surge in value for domains, likely due to the sale of domains in September.

Unfortunately, the domain industry is becoming saturated with uneducated investors who are driving up prices for previously undervalued domains. For example, even though the average Chinese investor cannot afford domains, they are still eager to invest in domains, leading to inflated prices. China is currently experiencing a period of financial illiteracy and mass hysteria about where to invest their money, which only exacerbates the situation.

It's worth noting that there are missed opportunities in the domain industry, such as when the domain name was dropped, despite the high demand for cannabis-related domains. It's amazing to see how much the industry can change over time.


That's an interesting observation about the registration of domain names. It seems that there is high demand for these domains, especially among the Chinese market. The fact that 25% of the unclaimed domains have been registered already is significant, indicating a fast-paced market.

With the increasing interest in domain names that hold cultural and linguistic value, it is likely that any domains with significance or aesthetic appeal will be registered by the end of the year. This suggests that if you're looking to secure such a domain, it would be advisable to act quickly.

It is difficult to make a definitive statement that all domains will be bought out soon. While there is certainly high demand for these domains, it is hard to predict the exact timeline for their complete buyout. Factors such as availability, pricing, market trends, and individual preferences of domain buyers all come into play.

However, the data you provided suggests that there is a strong market for domains, particularly among the Chinese market. It is likely that domains with significance or aesthetic appeal will continue to be registered at a fast pace. If you have specific domains in mind that you believe meet these criteria, it would be wise to act promptly to secure them before they are potentially taken by other buyers.
