Chinese Domaining: The Number Five (5)

Chinese-Domaining-Masterclass-The-Number-SevenTLD Registry, the registry of Dot Chinese Online (.在线) and Dot Chinese Website (.中文网) top level domains, is releasing the fifth installment of their Chinese Domaining Masterclass blog series.

TLD Registry presented the world’s first, and still currently the world’s only Chinese Domaining Masterclass, at the industry-leading domain investing conference, NamesCon 2015. After several months of research, development, writing, and refining, they created a 120-page curriculum for western domain investors to use as a resource to help them confidently invest in Chinese-specific domains, without knowing a single word of Chinese.

I attended the "Chinese Domaining Masterclass" in NamesCon and I wrote a blog post about it: 10 Things I Learned About Chinese Domain Names.

Now, TLD Registry is releasing portions of the acclaimed and sought-after masterclass curriculum to the general public, in the form of a blog series, focused on providing tips and tricks to help you invest in Chinese IDNs, again, without knowing anything about the Chinese language.

The first installment was about Chinese numerics, specifically, the number seven. The second one was about the number three. The third was about the number 4. The fourth was about the number 8. The fifth was about the number 9.

Today’s topic: "The Number Five (5)" Continue reading
