Chinese companies often use English domain names.
Many investors have the misconception that Chinese companies use only Pinyin domains. On the contrary, I come across English-based domains regularly when reading Chinese news. Here are 10 Chinese startups I picked up from financial news just in June.
|AI-based medical care
|Blood inventory control
|Electric car charging
|Digital health care
|Eco power supply
|Bio material storage
What can we learn from these domains? (1) .com (2) Brand-matching.
This means that if you invest in English-based .com domains, you still have a chance to sell to Chinese end users. Just make sure your domains are listed at a marketplace with retail outlets in China.
Also, if you see a domain not matching its Chinese brand, there is a possibility that the company will upgrade to its brand-matching .com.
