In September 2020, Nongfu Spring was listed on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange with a total market value of 409.34 billion Hong Kong dollars.

4. Wang Wei (SF Express)

Their subsidiary companies also follow a similar naming pattern, such as evergrandespring.com for "Evergrande Spring Water," evergrandekhingan.com for "Evergrande Grain and Oil," and health.evergrande.com for "Evergrande Health." As a publicly traded company with a market value of 2001.52 billion Hong Kong dollars, Evergrande is keen on using "Evergrande" in their domain names, despite their length being less user-friendly for memorization and brand promotion.

6. He Xiangjian Family (Midea)

Their official website domain is the composite domain "Muyuan Foods" muyuanfoods.com, and they have protected muyuanfoods.com.cn/cn, among other brand-related domains.

From a domain perspective, the top ten companies on the list have all adopted domain names that align with their brand. Most of these domains consist of easily memorable phonetic elements, numbers, and abbreviation-based names. However, some traditional companies like Nongfu Spring and Evergrande have chosen brand domains that, while meaningful, are lengthy and complex, making them less conducive to user memorization and brand promotion. In the rapidly evolving digital economy, domain names represent valuable digital real estate, and those who secure them early stand to benefit the most from the digital wave.

According to Hurun Report Chairman and Chief Researcher, Hu Run, "Emerging industries, especially the digital economy, are experiencing explosive growth this year." The digital economy is currently in a period of robust development, and domain names are akin to prime real estate in the online world. Those who can secure them early will have a lasting advantage in the digital landscape.
