NameBio recently reported the sale of Biotech.asia for $11,651 USD with a date of 2018-07-2018.
Biotech is a common short name for the term
Biotechnology. Here we have a dot Asia domain name sale which tops the .Asia tld chart for the last five years. The venue for the dotAsia sale was Sedo.
Dot Asia Domain Name Value
The commonly used valuation tools for dotAsia seem to be stuck on the 2008 launch data. It's been a slow climb for .Asia domain name values. Registrant address restrictions (since removed), lack of domain name sales data, and new tld launches such as dotTop surely held this one back.
Asia comprises more than 60% of the world's population with a total of 49 nation states including China, Japan, and India. As the new tld dust settles watch for .Asia valuations to improve. The DotAsia Organization based out of Hong Kong continues to promote the brand.
Biotech vs Biotechnology
A search on Google for the keyword biotech returns results which include both the short name Biotech and the long name Biotechnology. Company names, wholesalers, job and career sites, medical terminology, news, and a collection of TED.com talks appear in the results.
Taking this a step further, if you add the
site:.cn filter to your search, for example, country specific results appear. And what about if you search for something like
Asia Biotech Conference?
The single word Biotech allows greater flexibility versus the comparable two word dot COM domain names.
Biotech.asia Domain Name Sold For $11,651
Let's take a look at five of the Biotech comparable domain name sales. The single word Biotech allows greater flexibility versus the two word dot COM domain names listed below. Information website, job website, company website, retail and wholesale options are all covered.
- Biotech.asia $11,651

The regional branding let's viewers know it's NOT a site built for Western use only. This is one of the reasons why I like the dot Asia tld. It is a visual indicator that a company services the region. Here's another list of bullet points to help drive home that point.
- Biotech.com (probably some Western company)
- Biotech.cn | Biotech.com.cn
- Biotech.in | Biotech.co.in
- Biotech.my | Biotech.com.my
- Biotech.sg | Biotech.com.sg
- Biotech.th | Biotech.co.th
Biotech.asia is a great domain name for a company which services customers in the region. Western dot COM websites, for example, often can not service customers living in China, Malaysia or Thailand. And local products and services in each individual country often do not meet quality and pricing needs.
But let's remember that .Asia is a top level global tld. The brand works very well to market travel services, Ski.asia for example. Anyone in the world should identify that domain name as potentially selling ski vacation packages to China, Japan, Korea, and Russia for example.
