Re: Does this make any sense- 中-国 .net ?

I would avoid dashes like the plague. I am not a native Chinese speaker so I can't guarantee these are correct. Having said that, here are some available net's in Simplified Chinese that are better choices imo:

政策.net policy (related to Chinese government policy)

伴奏.net To accompany(music)

平面.net Print media (Highly commercial)

报表.net Forms for reporting statistics

Re: Does this make any sense- 中-国 .net ?

Yes, a dash will seriously harm or even destroy your market value in most cases. The exception being some two word Arabic terms where a dash is required for the term to be readable. Here's a relevant thread:

http://www.idnforums.com/forums/1048...c-domains.html

I have a list of 700 Chinese simplified keywords that I can give you if you are interested. I've had one native Chinese person verify the list and I believe they are correct but can't guarantee that. PM me if you want it. Good luck

It depends on where you put the dash, it will be the same for english and other names.

"English-Names.net" still makes sense but not "Eng-lish.net"

"中-国 .net" is like "Chi-na.net", what do you think?

Re: Does this make any sense- 中-国 .net ?

There is a limit of 5000 characters for PM’s so I will have to send as an Excel file attachment to an e-mail address. No keyloggers, I promise. If you want it to go to an e-mail address other than what you are using on whois, PM me the e-mail. Otherwise, I’ll just look up one of your domains and send it to the whois contact.

I will get them out as soon as possible. I’ve just been proofreading the list and removed the extension so it’ll be easier to search using a bulk domain availability checker. There are some terms that don’t have significant search volumes. For example, I choose a few single character domains and names of important commodities that aren’t normally searched but I think worth having. Also, I’m interested in financial terms and cosmetics related terms so the standards were a little lower for those areas. Note there are a few terms that are Japanese.

This is a keyword list, not a list of available reg’s. I believe I verified all of them in Google images and with a Chinese native speaker but can’t guarantee that there aren’t any errors. I can guarantee that someone else making a similar list would have different choices so these are my opinion only. Keep in mind this doesn’t include the top 150 or so names that were on the PIR reserved list. I will try to find that list and post it here. You can ignore the dollar values as those are a nominal search engine optimization value metric used by Market Samurai.

I don't know... All I know that .com is registered by a native since 2007.

Google ignores the dash unlike in Chi-na it warns of error.
It must be different in some way.
Besides, a dash in between words is fine in chinese for a web address?
Like China-property?

Re: Does this make any sense- 中-国 .net ?

As I said it's more like u·s.net. Your target audience is never gonna type it. Even word separation doesn't make sense as words typically don't get separated in Chinese. On the rare occasions that they do (only between first name and surname afaIk) they would use the interpunct (·).

So the answer to your initial question would be: No, it doesn't make sense at all.

Re: Does this make any sense- 中-国 .net ?

I can sort of understand why a native went ahead and regged the .com. Guess everybody has a right to dream. He/she realized IDN was something to look into, and having discovered all the great names are already taken, he's got desperate to come up with some invention, thus came the hyphen, which doesn't even get used in their language normally. I've seen the same with Japanese. I can't count how many hyphen nammes have been dropped only after a year of two of holding by the registrant.

The current registrant is still holding onto the dream he bought at the reg fee. Let's wish him/her the best anyway!

He might have even been hanging out at Namepros.
