There can be no doubt that Chinese are obsessed with numerology, as well as there being lucky and unlucky numbers, 8 being the luckiest, numbers are also used in email address, whereas western computer users will generally have their name, with some numbers at the end, e.g. email@example.com. Chinese will generally use numbers firstname.lastname@example.org. The reason being, there is no alphabet in Chinese, just symbols (yes that's true Goggle it).
Chinese culture and its fascination with numbers:
A well educated Chinese individual knowing 9000 symbols a not so well educated individual about 4000.
Chinese Pinyin was invented in 1950 by linguists as a bridge between symbols and the latin alphabet.
It is also used in Malaysia, Singapore and Taiwan, where it has been the official standard since 2009. I have chosen as domain names for the Eastern market place, a combination of the Chinese Pinyin for numbers with the numeric for numbers (alphanumeric). I have also chosen the luckiest Chinese numbers. See the links at the bottom of the page.
