Chinese Domain Market Newsletter

She's simply stunning. I'm not talking about any girl but Olympic gold medalist and gymnast Simone Biles. She is charming because she radiates with positive energy to impact any person standing close to her. And, her secret of success is no secret at all, as she said, "enjoy the ride, never give up, trust in your squad, and treat yourself afterward." Aren't these rules applicable to domain investment as well? Here's the post.

Chinese domain market data: the big picture


I find it helpful to look at a market from its historical perspective. This means looking at data related to the market. When it comes to analyzing the Chinese domain market, we have good news. Since 1997, CNNIC (China Internet Network Information Center) has been conducting surveys on the internet usage in China and its survey reports are available for download from its website.

I thought it would be an easy task. But it turned out to be quite time consuming. It has taken more time than I thought to download the files, search for the desired data, and then enter into my database. As a result, I ran out of time to write any analysis.

So, I'll just present the raw data here. Hopefully, tomorrow I can take the time to look at the data and maybe plot some charts to make it easier to see the growth of individual extensions as well as the whole market.
