.CC Is In The News, but is it worth investing in?


A long time ago, in a galaxy far far away I bought one .CC domain, Genome.cc. Yes, for some reason this is what came to mind at the time when I bought the domain. Since then I’ve mostly steered clear of the .CC market.

Now, with the uptick in buying activity from China and a verified price drop on .CC domain names, it seems .CC has been cast into the spotlight.

I’ve heard people say in the past that .CC could easily be used for “Chinese Company” but honestly I’ve never felt that was a compelling enough reason to invest in this TLD. Still it’s short, easy to remember, and it’s been around for a while so there are some nice aged names that would cost six-figures in .COM for a fraction of the price.

The question is, in a world with .CLUB, .NYC, .GURU, .XYZ, .CLICK and many more, does an old TLD like .CC get new life? What do you think? Comment and let your voice be heard!
