New York, July 9, 2012 - Martial Arts Superstar Donnie Yen is arriving in New York today to receive the prestigious Star Asia Award from the New York Asian Film Festival. He will also announce the launch of his official website http://www.DonnieYen.asia and his first charity platform Go.Asia.

Donnie first started working with the DotAsia Organisation in 2011 to support and promote charities in Hong Kong. Edmon Chung, CEO of DotAsia Organisation, remarks "Donnie recognized very early that .ASIA is the one domain extension that allowed him to reach our diverse region with one cohesive web address.  We are very delighted to partner with him on various charity projects such as Go.asia, he is truly an inspiration.  I hope through both Donnieyen.asia and Go.asia Donnie is able to outreach and unite his fans within and beyond the region, creating awareness and impact on charity works that are close to his and our hearts."

The benefits of building Donnieyen.asia, as his virtual home to connect with fans across Asia and around the globe were obvious. At first Donnie relied on his Weibo (Twitter in China) and Facebook fan page account to communicate with his fans.  However, due to the restricted and partial access of these accounts, particularly for his Chinese followers, he soon discovered that third-party proprietary platforms are unable to provide a complete solution.  With http://www.donnieyen.asia, he can now communicate with all of his fans, through a regional Internet extension that truly represents where he is from and reflects his identity.

The .ASIA domain extension is Asia's regional domain dedicated to the Asia market.  It is the one domain that instantly turns your website, your brand into an Asia friendly name.  And that makes a difference here, where relationships mean business.

Extends Free 7" Android Tablet Offer to Any New .ASIA Domain

Download: [ PDF ]

Hong Kong, 23 June 2012 - DotAsia is pleased to announce the successful "Go-Live" launch for Chinese, Japanese & Korean IDN (Internationalized Domain Name) registrations for the .Asia Top-Level Domain on June 21, 2012. Amidst the wave of new gTLDs being introduced, .Asia is the first new gTLD from Asia dedicated to the Asian community around the world. IDN .Asia registrations will be accepted on a First-Come-First-Served basis from Go Live (http://www.domains.asia).

According to research findings, it is estimated that Internet users will reach 2.2 billion by 2013, with Asia remaining the biggest global growth engine, and that 17% of the world's online population will live in China in 2013.  "That means the majority of new Internet users will not speak English and will interact fully in their own native language," adds Edmon Chung, CEO of the DotAsia Organisation. "Having a domain name that speaks their language will be critical to allow them to find you, especially considering the search engine optimization (SEO) benefits in capturing domain names matching keywords users are looking for."

Hand in hand with the launch of CJK (Chinese, Japanese & Korean) IDN is the extension of the FreeB program (http://www.freeb.asia) to IDN .Asia registrations. Now, registrants of both ASCII and IDN .Asia names will receive free gifts exclusively from DotAsia:

- Free 7" Android Tablet (with Camera) with any 10-year .Asia registration
- Free Bluetooth Keyboard with any 5-year .Asia registration
- Free Stylus pen with any 2-year .Asia registration
- Free Headphone with any 1-year .Asia registration

The FreeB program from DotAsia highlights Asia's continuation as the center of cool, bargain gadgets. ".Asia is the one domain that connects you to Asia, the largest and fastest growing Internet marketplace," says Chung. "We believe that new gTLDs will bring new models to the domain market and DotAsia's FreeB program represents one of the many innovations to come that could challenge existing mindsets and bring about new uses of domain names. For example, it would be exciting to see .Asia domain names being used on tablet PCs as central nodes for personal clouds."

Imagine being able to walk through some of the greatest museums around the world without leaving your chair, this is now possible!

Google has announced that more than 150 international museums across 40 countries have joined its second phrase of Google Art Project (http://www.googleartproject.com ).

Launched in 2011 by a group of Google engineers who are arts lovers, with just 17 art museums from US and Europe on board, the newly expanded Google Art Project now contains more than 30,000 works from every era and medium, and from the collections of 151 museums from 40 countries.

The website now stores information and high-resolution images of the artworks, which can be viewed in beautiful, bracing detail. Google has also adopted the Street View technology in the museums so users can access any partnered museums in 3D.

Google Art Project (http://www.googleartproject.com )於2011年2月成立,起初是由Google內部一群愛好藝術的工程師每天投放兩成工作時間製作而成。首階段集合了來至9個歐美國家的 17間美術館的展品。今年Art Project將推行第 二階段,Google將囊括範圍增加到了 40 個國家、151 間文化機構,把30, 000多件展品都放在這個為藝術而設的網上平台。

Google 將藝術品數碼化, 就是要告訴大家藝術並非一些遙不可及的是, 並 期望借計劃拉近群眾和藝術的距離。Google藉實景拍攝技術,把美術館以360度呈現出來,好讓大眾足不出戶亦能遊覽不同美術館。此外,網頁提供可放大功能,大家能參透作品的細節,更可以把喜愛的作品「收藏」。

Online sales to triple by 2015!

The Boston Consulting Group said Online retail sales in China will triple to more than USD360 billion by 2015, with nearly a quarter of the population shopping online. Online sales are going to account for 8% of the total sales in the country in 2015, up from around 5% right now. It is going to be the largest online market in the world in 3 years time too. There have been more people who were able to connect using broadband internet around the country, then there is the emergence of smartphones and tablets which have made it easier for people to go online and portable too, when they are free, waiting for the bus, heading to work and so on. Many online shops have taken their offerings online and also there are apps for some companies where people can buy things on these apps. Another issue is the security has been improved and many are much more comfortable using their credit card to buy things online, as a result of paying by "plastic" grows, you can expect to see much more online sales in the years to come even beyond 2015!

According to Pearl Research, China's online gaming market is going to reach US$9.2 billion by 2014, up from around US$6.6 billion sometime last year which is around a 40% increase. Another proof to how well they are doing can be attributed to the fact that the top 5 gaming companies made a combined US$5.3 billion in revenues. Pearl Research noted that microclient versions of games were growing in popularity. These would take shorter time to download and thus people would have more time to play the games rather than waiting for it to be downloaded and so on. Also another key growth for Mainland China was the web based games. This segment was expected to hit over US$1 billion in 2013, from US$800 million last year. In the same research it was discovered that the wider digital games market for Asia-Pacific would more than double over the next four years to reach US$30.3 billion in 2016. More websites and domain names for Asia should be used to target these people!
