Significance of the number 163[edit]

What is the significance of the number 163? Why was the domain name 163.com chosen? Does it refer to a telephone short code in China, does the number sound like a certain phrase in Chinese, is the number random? -- pne (talk) 15:48, 4 December 2010 (UTC)

This is the only thing I came to this page to learn, and I am similarly dismayed to leave with my question unanswered. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 96.235.185.3 (talk) 18:59, 1 February 2014 (UTC)
None the wiser in 2015. Yet there are anserws on the Internet: " The Internet company NetEase uses the web address 163.com—a throwback to the days of dial-up when Chinese Internet users had to enter 163 to get online."[1] --213.184.43.2 (talk) 11:49, 30 August 2015 (UTC)

Contested deletion[edit]

This page is not unambiguously promotional, because this is one of the largest Internet companies in China, with revenues of USD 3 billion! --Fuzheado | Talk 12:09, 15 July 2016 (UTC)

Agreed, but that's not why it's being proposed for deletion. The content is overtly promotional. Best, Mr. Nair Talk 12:27, 15 July 2016 (UTC)
