What

Domains are grand seeds, and these seeds can develop into grand trees of global enterprises serving every corner of the world. Each domain also sports the following characteristics.

Digital address

A domain is the address of your digital store. If you want to visit Apple, just go to Apple.com. If you want to visit Alibaba, again just go to Alibaba.com. What is your digital address? Is your address easy to remember?

Brand

A brand can be seen as having two components: brand name (what) and brand address (where). For example, "Tesla" tells you it's about electric cars and "Tesla.com" tells you where to get one.

Asset

A good domain is an asset which grows in value over time. For example, CallTracking.com was sold for $21,000 in 2017 then $120,000 in 2018, and Ice.com was sold for $3 million in 2014 then $ 3.5 million in 2018.
