Shot in the dark... dot.net ?

I spoke with a Chinese speaker and asked for the Chinese word used for "dot" (as in, "www dot idnforums dot com")... I was told the word is 点子

So I purchased 点子.net (dot dot net)

Any ideas or thoughts?

From what I get it means - spot, dot, speck

I like these kind of names although wouldn't know how to value them.

No good. Please set to delete or get a refund.

Btw, there are names 100 times better than that for sale on this forum ocassionally, for $20 or $50, you just need to monitor the sale threads.

Re: Shot in the dark... dot.net ?

Touchring is correct...

People will not type this character "点" to mean "dot" (and the addition of "子" basically makes it even less useful, "子" is a noun suffix and basically loosely translates to mean "letter" here.. so is "dot letter")

Also people will use "。" (unsure what ascii code is for this letter) which is the same meaning and look almost as the ascii "." and the same key for ascii "." on the keyboard, when typing Chinese (rather than using "点" for this meaning).
Interesting enough Firefox and other browsers accept the use of "。" instead of "." for type-ins and just assume the "。" is an ascii dot.

Hope additional explanation is useful.

Cheers - Asiaplay

Re: Shot in the dark... dot.net ?

Meanings can include: spot, dot, speck, point, drop, droplet

While 点子 does mean dot. In a URL Chinese people will speak "dot com" (in poor english/transliteration). Noone will read a URL as w w w 点子 idnforums 点子 com.

Therefore i think this address is pretty worthless. Not even that cute seeing as there are way more address that make more sense that are still available.
