TLD Registry Ltd the registry for Dot Chinese Online (.在线) and Dot Chinese Website (.中文网) has released a new tool to help domain investors who do not speak Chinese (guys like me) to find available domains in Chinese.
The New tool is ChineseLandrush.com .
“ChineseLandrush.com is an innovative new way to help non-Chinese speakers to understand and invest in Chinese domains.
At ChineseLandrush.com, visitors will always find 500 great, hand-made domain name suggestions.
The suggestions are not yet registered, and they’re not registry-reserved.
The 500 domain name suggestions are yours for the taking.
Our suggestions are hand-made by our team of Chinese domain experts in Beijing, Hong Kong and New York. For ChineseLandrush.com we never use automated “domain spinning” tools. Our domain suggestions encompass categories from activities, sports and hobbies, common phrases, food, geographic, immigration and travel, medical, and more than a dozen other relevant categories.
If you register a free account and log-into ChineseLandrush.com, you have access to our powerful custom list tool. You can add your domain choices to your cart, and “check out” by downloading a handy spreadsheet file. Then, you can easily copy-and-paste your list into the bulk-registration page at the domain registrar of your choice.
Every night, our automated systems scan yesterday’s domain registrations and cleanse the suggestions database of new domains. The list of 500 domain suggestions is then replenished from our “hopper” of several thousand hand-made suggestions.””
According to the registry “Since their public launch ten weeks ago, Dot Chinese Online (.在线) and Dot Chinese Website (.中文网) have rocketed to the number 1 and 2 positions in namestats‘ “Internationalized Domain Names” (IDN) leaderboard.”
“Many of the world’s most successful domain name investors have already bought our domains. In fact, our first premium domain name auction, held in Macau in April, is still the most successful in ICANN’s new gTLD program (we raised USD184,000 for 33 domain name lots). And during our first month of general availability, more than $580,000 in Dot Chinese Online & Dot Chinese Website domains were sold to end-users and investors.”

One of the two new sites that server up new gTLD stats, NameStat.org has made some changes to its ranking system for new gTLD registration.
The service has dropped all free .XYZ domain names given out by Network Solutions (actually all Network Solution .XYZ registrations) and all Domain Names registered by Frank Schilling’s North Sound Names in extensions owned by Frank Schilling’s Uniregistry in computing its Best Selling gTLD list.
NameStat.org is now showing .XYZ with just under 15,000 registrations dropping it from the top 10.
ntldstats.com shows .XYZ being the most registered string with now over 104,000 registrations, almost 85% or over 88K coming from Network Solutions
According to NameStat.org, .XYZ is sitting at number 14 on the list of most registered new gTLD’s with just under 15,000 registrations
Likewise NameStat.org has removed all domain registrations made by North Sound Names for Uniregistry strings .Link, .Sexy and .Tattoo
According to NameStat.org Best Selling gTLD list, .Link is now 33rd on the list with 7,676 registrations while .Sexy is number 28 with 8,503 registrations and .Tattoo is now where to be found in the top 50 which is at the moment which is the biggest list that NameStat.org currently offers
According to ntldstats.com, .link is number 8 with over 32,000 registrations and .Sexy is number 18 with over 14,000 registrations and .Tattoo is number 39 with almost 6,300 registrations
With the removal of .XYZ Network Solutions registrations on NameStat.org., Club is back on top with over 68,000 registrations, with .Guru, .Berlin .Photography and the IDS China Online rounds out the top 5.
However NameStat.org has not removed the Network Solutions or the domain registrations from North Sound Names from the total amount of new gTLD registered, which they have at, 1,036,530 while ntldstats.com has the total number of new gTLD registrations at 1,050,605 (difference in timing of the last update and how Zone files are pulled)
Here are the top 20 Best Selling New gTLD’s according to NameStat.org:
