A good domain name is just like a good store name: unforgettable at a glance, easily stands out among its peers, and even symbolizes its unique status.

Taiwan Network Information Center has conducted a global auction on the domain name registration of “space.tw”, “tech.tw”, “digital.tw”, “computers.tw”, “mobile.tw” and “real.tw”, would bring about value by its representative “store name”. These domain name are currently Reserved Words, which means that no one has ever used this domain name. Compared to obtaining a domain name that was previously used, there is no need to worry about how it was previously used or what it was used for; you can create a space that completely belongs to yourself on the Internet market with no need to assume the risk of online reviews from previous users. More importantly, itself is a representative word that can be understood in a glance and is easy to memorize; there is no need for complicated advertisement when promoting it in order for people who come in contact with it to remember this domain name. Furthermore, if this domain name was used as your company name directly, it will be even more direct and powerful.
