Thanks a lot.
BTW, would it be fine to choose one Domain name like

www.mydomain.live

is it better to choose .live, or .global, as the domain suffix, other than .com?
.com is by far the most popular... Choose another only as a last resort (e.g. if .com is already taken)...

Many people still assume .com is the only domain suffix!

It is pretty rare to use .live or .global in China.

Correct

The other options are .cn or .net if you want your new website to have a presence in China.
