Quick question... Having trouble navigating through yahoo to the file manager ( not iPage )? Many thanks for any answer or 2. Another question on my mind: For all the Macau fans out there, here is a jolt of good news, the wheels are spinning and fast!:.

Sands bets $11bn on Macau.

Joe Leahy, Hong Kong.

July 25, 2006.

LAS Vegas Sands is planning to invest more than $US8 billion ($10.6 billion) in it's casino, leisure and convention facilities in Macau and a neighbouring island over the next six years..

The size of the investment, double the figure reported originally, is part of the US-based gaming company's plans to change the face of the former Portuguese enclave's tourism industry, from offering one-day gambling trips to becoming a longer-stay destination..

Company president and chief operating officer Bill Weidner said: "These development opportunities are contingent upon approvals by government at several levels and will occur in phases over time as the markets develop and mature.".

The company's plans for Macau follow it's success in Singapore, where it has won the rights to build and operate the $US3.6 billion Marina Bay casino complex, scheduled to open in 2009. Analysts say both investments should allow it to dominate Asia's two largest casino markets: the greater China market, which Merrill Lynch this year estimated to be worth $US7.3 billion in sales, and the $US3.8 billion South-East Asian market..

Mr Weidner said the US company's total investments and turnover would triple as a result of it's initiatives in Asia..

"Most of the company's investments and revenues will be in Asia," he said..

The company is seeking to emulate it's Las Vegas business model in Singapore and Macau. In Las Vegas last year, industry-wide non-gaming revenues came in at $US9.2 billion, outstripping casino sales of $US6.3 billion..

In Macau, the company plans to spend $US3 billion each in two phases on the Cotai Strip. The company is also in talks to develop Heng Qin island, a Chinese island bordering the Cotai Strip...

I would like to know the answer too. Anyone here know what is the answer to your question. I'll do some research and get back to you if I find an useful answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably could assist you..

Comment #1

I think you miss understood Roderick. I do not think anyone is suggesting to reg .mo.

Most everyone I know is regging .COM names that are related to Macao and .hk (hong kong).

I know personally that I have made a few sales in .hk soley because of the growth in the gambling sector of Macau...

Comment #2

Thanks for info SKG,.

Hope my MacauVisitors or TripToMacau will surf on the right wave..

Comment #3

Worse, you must be a Macau Resident/Opening a business in Macau to register 1...

Comment #4

Anybody can reg .mo.cn , I have Blackjack.mo.cn - I also own 路凼金光.com (Cotai) which is the huge new gambling strip on Taipa /Coloane- Macau.

Sands Casino paid for it's first casino in Macau in nine months.

FYI - Macau will this year produce more gambling revenue than Las Vegas..

Comment #5

Wot, how widely used is .mo.cn if I may ask. There seems to be a lot of premium keywords available still...

Comment #6

Very few of the .cn regional names are in use but those that are are China specific, hotel type names or the popular numbers - try 888 , or 1 etc - no chance..

I have a couple of others- Hotel.hk.cn , Hotels.bj.cn.

Not yet available in idn ...

Comment #7

Is a name spelled in pin-yin better than Macau?..

Comment #8

Are you saying not many people from china visit Macau?..

Comment #9

No - I am saying that chinese characters are far more searched than pinyin..

When I was in Macau three days ago the majority of the visitors were mainland Chinese- hundreds of thousands...

Comment #10

How do you folks feel about Macau names in English using the .cn extension?.

For example, macaucasinos.cn...

Comment #11

.mo are more relevant to macao rather then .cn.mo..

Comment #12

That was my next question.

Would have been good as in KansasCity.mo or StLouis.mo..

Comment #13

I could certainly be wrong, but I'm under the impression that .mo isn't available in the U.S. If that's true wouldn't .cn be more popular with the Chinese than .cn.mo since people in China would use it more naturally making it better for Americans to register .cn names?..

Comment #14

I have never ever seen a .hk.cn or .mo.cn or .bj.cn domain, never came across any iPage site using it. I doubt if they're any valuable, unless they're extremely cheap to register. Where can you buy them? I couldn't find any registrar regging .hk.cn or .mo.cn..
