Second Hong Kong Geodomain For Sale

8

Kwun Tong Hong Kong

Last week, I completed the sale of WanChai.com, a Hong Kong geodomain name, and I am now looking to sell KwunTong.com. Kwun Tong is a highly populated urban area in Hong Kong, which has seen remarkable growth over the last several years. Although the population of the Kwun Tong district is much higher than that of Wan Chai, my asking price for KwunTong.com is $15,000 USD, and the domain name is registered at Moniker. Email me if you are interested in buying the name, or post something in the comment section.

Kwun Tong is more of a residential area of Hong Kong, and there are all types of homes, apartments, and condominiums in the area. In addition, there are many services and industrial facilities in Kwun Tong. Kwun Tong is one of the most densely populated areas in the world, with a population of 564,700 people.

One of the most well known areas of Kwun Tong is Yue Man Square, which is home to a variety of shops and stores. According to the KwunTong.org website, Yue Man Square in Kwun Tong is home to “shops selling jewellery, trendy clothing, CDs, mobile phones, electrical appliances , etc.

Here are a few links to websites with information about Kwun Tong, Hong Kong:

Many of the common domain extensions with KwunTong are taken, and related IDN names are taken as well. I think owning the .com makes sense in this case since many foreigners who do business in the area will look for hotels, restaurants, and things to do, and the .com makes sense, especially for English speakers.

Using Page Titles to Find Good Domains

4

While I think it’s always smart to register domain names in an industry in which you are familiar, there are plenty of times where this isn’t feasible or sensible. When you aren’t entirely familiar with a particular industry, looking at some of the page titles in industry specific websites can give you good ideas about what types of names would have value.

If a company dedicates a page on its website to a specific topic or service, or if it mentions the term in the title of it’s home page, I would bet that it’s likely that the .com domain name of that exact match term will be of interest to them or someone else in their industry.

Let’s use the search term “soccer cleats” to illustrate my point. Here’s a look at some of the page title keyword phrases I found in Google when I search for soccer cleats:

  • Soccer Cleats
  • Soccer Jerseys
  • Soccer Gear
  • Soccer Equipment
  • Soccer Balls
  • Indoor Soccer Shoes
  • Soccer Goals
  • Youth Soccer
  • Soccer Footwear

In my opinion, if you owned the .com of any of these key phrases, it would be likely one or more of the leading soccer sales companies (either those listed in the top of the results or those advertising) would be interested in buying the domain name from you. Some of the .com names would be more valuable than others, but if you found one for sale for a few thousand dollars, you could probably flip it for more.

Searching like this has been done by people like myself for a while, and many of the strong keyword names have been registered for a number of years. However, there are plenty of terms that can still be bought and flipped for great prices. Doing research like this is important because there are plenty of companies who would LOVE to own names like these, but they wouldn’t know how to get them.

If you do the legwork, which includes domain research, acquisition negotiations, and buyer research, you could end up making some great deals.
