Re: 丽江.com auction $1,015 at snapnames.com

Just curious...on your link above to the city-
http://zh.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E4%B8%BD%E6%B1%9F

There is the shi 市 sign (丽江市) on the Wikipedia page for this Chinese city.

Have been told that the shi is good for Japanese cities, but not generally used for Chinese cities??

But I have seen it over and over and over with Chinese cities...all over Wikipedia as a matter of fact for most Chinese cities.

So...why have continually it been said that Chinese city domains don't use shi and have little value?
Wondering who is doing the editing at Wikipedia, or maybe this is indeed correct to write city name?

Great domain, was watching this one.

A very beautiful tourist town in Yunnan, China. One of the most popular tourist destinations in SW China. Millions of Chinese and Foreign visitors there every year. One of my favorite places i have visited in China.

丽江市 with the 市 is the official authoritative name used. In normal speech it can normally be dropped, it will generally be used in writing. Both are good.
丽江 i would prefer in this case, as shorter and sweeter

Not a big city (300k in total and 100k in city). It is a famous tourist destination. I guess $1k is a bargain. I did not realise it was dropped. The winner was lucky.

The official name comes with the shi, like people's republic of china. Which will be worth more?

It being the official way to write city names might be a plus as you seem to recognize but then you think can nullify that benefit by referring to the most extreme example you can think of ? The "people's republic of china" is not as pragmatic (and widely used) as "city" .

Re: 丽江.com auction $1,015 at snapnames.com

Great name and it used to be a great laid-back town but a bit too much Disneyland these days.

But from a commercial point I wouldn't have mind having it myself.

It's packed with domestic tourists, especially during the Chinese holidays.

I personally prefer 丽江 over 丽江市

The shi thing is difficult to comprehen unless you are familiar with the language.

Re: 丽江.com auction $1,015 at snapnames.com

Yangshuo is also very commercial but at least to me, and I have been to both places this year, still a bit less, but that's personal observation.

I'm not sure how difficult it is to comprehend the 市, even though I'm no native speaker.

For example if I ask someone (in Chinese) where they are from they tell me, from 上海, 成都 etc. I have never heard them use 市 in that respect.

According to Baidu index the 市-less version is more popular

上海

成都

Major cities shi tend to do better. Check out lijiang: http://index.baidu.com/main/word.php...F6%BD%AD%CA%D0

My only comment on the "shi" is that for people searching for "City" related websites and services you get a more targeted search.

I have been told that for writing a city name the shi is often used. But for speaking you need use only the city name without adding "city" to end (for most cities, a few appharently have city in the title).

So...I think consensus is that city- no shi is preferable but city with shi has some value for website or city site purposes.

Yeah, not really. If you use advanced search on Alexa, and search the URL for XN and then compare what you get for MOBI, it will be quite clear that investments with infinitely less traffic have covered the distance on a road to nowhere, at a much faster rate than the inevitable adoption of IDN. When the investors in those 500K dot mobi's wake up to the fact their extension have been rendered unusuable because they have been locked into a legacy standard, I guess a few of them will have something to say. Mind you the cognitive abilities of this bunch are not likely to bring things to a head for a little while yet!
