From Google Keyword Tool, the answer is obvious: most people guess the online wholesale website is spelled as dh gate. If you are one of them, unfortunately, I have to tell you that you have been wrong. The correct spelling of, as indicated clearly in its logo, is DHgate, with D and H capitalized, and “gate” in lower-case letters.


Then what does DHgate mean to such a wholesale site? Actually, DHgate should be read in two words in Chinese, that is, dh gate.

Based on the overwhelming reports, DH are the initials of the Chinese pinyin DunHuang, a historically famous city–an important fortress of  “the silk road”. And “gate” means a gateway or portal.  As the company stated to the public, they use the combination of “dh” and “gate” with a hope that will become an important trade portal of China always opened to global merchants, and prosper like  the ancient city DunHuang.
