As is well known, there are only 100 two-digit .com domain names globally. Imagine that there are 200 countries and regions worldwide. If these two-digit domain names were evenly distributed, each country wouldn't even get a complete domain name. "Scarcity leads to value," and two-digit domain names are concise, easy to remember, globally applicable, and their news often stirs discussions within the domain name community.

They are considered rare assets in website building and investment, highly favored by end-users and investors. With their limited quantity and high demand, their prices might be steep, but their commercial and investment value is not to be underestimated. Let's now take a look at the current status of these premium domain names!

The whole world is in a hurry,the Chinese have taken 80% of the top-level domain names!

In the past decade, the ownership of two-digit .com domain names has gradually shifted from the West to China. Among the 100 two-digit .com domain names, nearly 80% have been repatriated to China. Over 90% have been developed into websites or collected, with only 9% remaining available for public sale. The scarcity of these domain names has driven their market prices to skyrocket, with recent transactions reaching at least tens of millions of dollars. As leaders among digital domain names, two-digit .com domains enjoy global usability and are highly versatile for website development, essentially unrestricted in their applications. Their market value often reaches into the eight figures, reflecting their immeasurable practical value.
