Whats the value of 1 char Chinese-Simp .COM name?

Just curious, but what is the going value for a single character .COM in Chinese simplified.

For instance, I have:

享.com (ENJOY) (38,300,000 google cn results)

I am looking for an overall discussion on the value of a single character like this considering it's not a product or something with bid values, and I also have another part to this question:

享 - translates to "ENJOY"
享用 - also translates to "ENJOY"

I see this a lot in Simplified Chinese. How do I know which version is right? Is it really just one character or does it need the 用 in addition to it to really mean enjoy? 用 translates to "use, apply". When I do a lot of reverse meanings I usually get two characters for the word, even though just the one character really means that word. Someone with expertise in this area, please clarify.

Re: Whats the value of 1 char Chinese-Simp .COM name?

Classical Chinese or Literary Chinese, ie. that language which from the times of Confucius until the early 20th Century was used as the official written language, almost always used only single character words, where in many cases, modern Chinese, which is a written vernacular, will use a two character combination for the same word. So, a single character conveys meaning, in a terse and compact kind of way. A meaning that is, for the popular characters, understood in Japan and Korea as well, since they adapted Classical Chinese, unlike many vernacular and specific two character combinations that aren't the same. Therefore, it is estimated that the value of good single character domains is going to be very high.

If modern day Chinese uses two character combos as the word instead the old way of single characters, then how does that make single, outdated characters more valuable today?

Value of my portolio just soared. One of earliest strategies was to sift through the entire Unicode table for distinctive Chinese Characters, registering anything with good Google scores and a positive emotive feel to it!

Most Chinese treat pair and quad character names as bringing good luck.

Well that to me suggests High Brandable rather than Premium Generic.

Unhappy Re: Whats the value of 1 char Chinese-Simp .COM name?

http://www.idnforums.com/forums/1327...r-chinese.html

I have a list of available one char chinese char I have done two months ago.
At that time I only registerd a few. However I MUST EAT MY HAT now because I didn't notice and I missed a few very nice ones that were on my list, but I didn't check them correctly! ARGH!!!!

That one, 享, was one of them, not a top one thought, but I was going to register it next. 買.net BUY.net and 賣.net SELL.net, were also on my listm but because they were .net, I passed. IDner got them recently.

But what I most regret loosing was 社. This one I lost because it gave me lousy results on OT tw and hk, BUT I didn't check OT JAPAN!!!! It's rocks on Japan!

Tonight I going after the few good ones left. One of them is
症 [zheng4] /disease/illness/ (trad=simpl)

Here's a bonus: 診.net

These are exceptional, because BUY and SELL are single character words in the first place (as is the case for most VERBS), so it doesn't matter if they are .net.

Like i registered 房.NET and 食.NET (US OVT 52), Housing.net and Food.net. They are inferior as compared to twin character version counterpart though, but nevertheless worth a bet.

There's no fix rule whether 1 character or 2 character is more generic - the easiest way is to check US OVT.

If there are less than 20 searches for a keyword on Yahoo.com in a month, it will not show any US OVT, so it's not possible to know if a keyword has US OVT 19 or US OVT 0.

The Chinese word for warehouse is 仓库 (US OVT 25).

Hey, hey! THE RACE IS ON! Someone is registering everything, RIGHT NOW! All 1 char will be gone tomorrow! Someone just got this from my list the moment I was going to register them: (some were on my shoppingcart but I was too slow)

您 –you
探- search
修 - repair
聊 – chat
楼 – tower

Damn, a gift to the dude that registered that: 屁

There's only a few thousand characters that are used most of the time. They are bound to be ALL GONE sooner rather than later.

Re: Whats the value of 1 char Chinese-Simp .COM name?

Are you sure that the traditional version was not registered (if you were trying to register Simplified)? This has happened to just about everyone here - Simplified Chinese domain appears available, but when you try to register it you get an error because the Traditional version is already registered. The Simplified version is blocked in this case but appears available from the registrar.

It sure does make cataloging the available names much harder.

Re: Whats the value of 1 char Chinese-Simp .COM name?

No, it was not a Variant issue. I am sure. I have pretty good experience with .com and .net Variants now. What I just don't get are .tv Variants... but that's another story.

Well, It's Friday night and I am going out. See you all 6 hours later
