A city domain name is an Internet domain name that focuses on the name of a city, such as LasVegas.com, NewYork.com, Beijing.com, and so on. These domain names are usually in the top-level domain (e.g., .com, .net, .org, etc.) or country-specific domains (e.g., .cn, .uk, .de, etc.), with the name of the city as the second-level domain name.

In the domain trading market, each country and city domain name has a different value, which is usually closely related to the fame and economic status of that country or city. One of the most notable deals in history was the Las Vegas domain name LasVegas.com, which reportedly sold for a whopping $90 million.

These city and country domain names are more than just an Internet address, they are synonymous with the city and country, reflecting their global popularity and commercial value. As we can see from this, the more famous the city, the higher the domain name transaction price tends to be. Of course, the time of transaction will also have a certain impact on the price.

In addition to the domain name transactions listed above, there are many other records of domain names sold at high prices. For example, HongKong.com from Hong Kong and Germany.com from Germany have been sold at high prices, but the specific price and time records are less disclosed.

The value of a city domain name is not only reflected in its transaction price, but also its importance as a city brand. A quality city domain name can:

1. Enhance city branding: a concise and memorable city domain name helps to enhance the city's brand image and visibility globally.

2. Promote economic development: By optimizing a city's online presence, it attracts more tourists, investors and business opportunities.

3. Enhance civic identity: Citizens' identification with the city domain name helps to enhance the city's cohesion and sense of community.
