Short is better! it is easier to remmeber,easier to type in,easier to spread in oral.
JD and MI are two examples to see how Chinese people choose in domain names.
JD start business with 360buy.com,It is not a good domain,this can be easy understanding,it don't have enough money at the begining,acquire a catchy domain is not the first priority.When well-funded it acquired the Pinyin domain JingDong.com,Yes,It is Pinyin,The most popular type of domain in China.but it's unlike other Pinyin (Baidu,Taobao,Weibo...) Jingdong is easily misspell，especially in South China，Jingdong or Jindong ？Many people don't know which one is correct.Finally, it upgraded its domain to JD.com for Millions of USD. The cost is expensive. But Richard Liu(the founder of Jing Dong) says it saved about $20 million in advertising expenses every year after using JD.com.
Another case is MI, though Leijun(The Founder of MI) acquired Xiaomi.com at the begining.The name XIAOMI is farely well in China,But when it expanding to the world,The name XIAOMI is a problem,Most foreigner don't know how to pronounce the world XIAOMI,XIAOMI is also not easy to remember for people don‘t know Pinyin,So upgrade the domain is a must.Then it acquired mi.com for $3.6 Million USD in 2014.
A freight train loaded with 50 containers of machinery and equipment left southwest China's Chongqing Municipality Sunday for capital of Ukraine, marking the launch of Chongqing's new freight train route.
The freight train is scheduled to pass through the border port of Erenhot in north China's Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, and will reach its destination in mid-September.
Previously, exports from Chongqing to Ukraine had to go through Belarus or Poland rather than heading directly for Ukraine. The new route is the municipality's first direct international freight train route to Kyiv. It is expected to further facilitate trade between Europe and the western regions of China.
Chongqing is a primary hub for China-Europe freight trains. The Yuxinou (Chongqing-Xinjiang-Europe) railway, which was the first China-Europe freight train route, saw 1,359 trips in the first half of 2021, up over 50 percent year on year, according to the port and logistics office of the municipal government.
Since the railway was put into operation in 2011, Yuxinou has launched more than 30 routes, connecting over 40 cities across 26 countries, and the routes have recorded over 8,000 freight train trips.
Mobile phone users will be able to get rid of the incessant and undesirable push notifications on their phones in the near future, as the Cyberspace Administration of China just implemented a crackdown against vulgar and incessant push notifications on Friday.
The administration has gathered that the push notifications that receive the most complaints are news without clear sources and incessant news notifications; hyped-up natural calamities, incidents, and crimes; hyped-up entertainment gossip and vulgar content with problematic values; notifications that abuse algorithms to push individualized notifications; and news providers that are not qualified to push notifications.
The crackdown will be implemented on news apps, mobile browsers, official WeChat accounts and tool apps.
Also, the administration required the above-mentioned four categories of apps and accounts to follow these requirements:
News notifications pushed must have clear sources;
Notifications must not hype up trendy issues to manipulate public sentiments;
Entertainment gossip and violent and vulgar content are prohibited from being pushed;
Opinions of immoral and controversial public figures and celebrities are prohibited from being pushed;
And bloody scenes of incidents and natural calamities shouldn't be stressed or singled out.
Further details of the crackdown are yet to be introduced.
