This list shows there are lots of companies that need domain upgrades

Lots of companies need to upgrade their domains. That’s good news for you.

When I look at the Fortune China 100 list (in Chinese) published in 2020, I’m surprised and excited because there are still so many companies using subpar domains and excited because this means there are opportunities for domain investors. Over 70% of the companies may need domain upgrades.

What is a good domain? A good domain matches the brand name of a company, and, in the case of corporate China where .com is dominant, this also means using the .com extension. For example, Alibaba Group Holding Limited is generally known as “Alibaba” (brand name), so Alibaba.com is a good domain; AlibabaGroup.com is less desirable and AlibabaGroupHoldingLtd.com is unacceptable, in my opinion.

However, many companies don’t seem to understand this basic rule, as I can find three companies on the list that even include “Ltd” in their domain: ccccLtd.cn (China Communications Construction), cnbmLtd.com (China National Building Material), and cnoocLtd.com (CNOOC).

There are many domains that you can tell right away what the upgrade should be, for example e-ChinaLife.com (China Life), ChinaTelecom-h.com (China Telecom), and Greenlandsc.com (Greenland Group). I have included the full list at the bottom of this post for your own treasure-hunting pleasure.

If you need to contact end users in China, read my articles “7 ways to find contact email addresses for Chinese companies” and “How to use LinkedIn to contact corporate executives in China” for hints.

Jack Ma once said that every technological revolution takes about 50 years, with the first 20 years being about the technology itself and the next 30 years about application of the technology. The first domains were released in 1985, so maybe the golden days of domain investing are here now.
