To celebrate the Chinese New Year for one of our most important markets, we have started a new blog series to honor our loyal supporters in China. Scroll down to read the full post in English.
Spring has sprung; flowers are blooming; the weather is warmer; and days grow longer, giving us more time to enjoy being outdoors after a long winter’s hibernation. Spring has always been a great time to celebrate because it is the time of growth and renewal. So here at XYZ, how can we not welcome this auspicious season with a celebration (of Chinese investors acquiring great .xyz domains!)?
This week we are celebrating springtime with some notable results from the first week of the west.cn auction. To start, we would like to congratulate the winner of 52.xyz for kicking off the auction with a winning bid of 158,000RMB ($24,211) on the very first day! Just like the temperature outside, things just got hotter from there. In 48 hours, a similar 2-number domain, 51.xyz, sold at nearly double the price for 300,000RMB ($46,327.04)! Now that’s 51 (and 52) reasons to celebrate!
We are also seeing valuable English terms such as yes.xyz and hot.xyz go for great prices. We believe this indicates that .xyz is not only quickly gaining acceptance in China, but is also rapidly gaining recognition with international investors as well. We want to congratulate the winner of hot.xyz with the winning the bid of 53,000RMB ($8,190.07). That’s a HOT bargain if we ever saw one.
If results keep going the way they are, this auction could be a record-breaking event for .xyz. The interest for these .xyz domains will continue to increase as more international investors become involved in this exclusive auction. In less than 24 hours of kicking off the auction, bidding for 1.xyz reached 1.02 million RMB! But you don’t have to break the bank, there are many more short and memorable domains left. So if you haven’t started bidding yet, be sure to register an account at www.w263.xyz to start bidding! AND remember, as an added bonus, domains sold at this auction will renew for standard fees, rather than premium renewal prices! (Spring is, after all, the time of renewal.)
With only 7 days left in this auction, don’t miss out on the remaining great domains up for grabs, such as 66.xyz, xxxx.xyz, zt.xyz, and vip.xyz, at no reserve. Many of these domains could be a great bargain (remember, domains won at auction will only renew for standard fees!). Please contact us at [email protected] if you need any help bidding or setting up an account.
Lastly, don’t forget, our Chinese partners are offering a special promotion for .xyz domains that ends this week. Act now before this promotion ends!
