A thread started recently at Digital Point saw a member ask the question “Where should I sell my LLLL.com domains?”. The reason for the question was becasue they were having trouble selling their names at any of the usual market venues. Aside from the recent decrease in LLLL.com demand, providing you offer them for sale at a reasonable price they will sell.
Yesterday one of the largest domain forums on the Internet published a new forum section solely for ’short’ domain names. Short domains have been defined as a name with five or less characters or letters. Having been in discussion for quite some time this really is good news for anyone involved in this domain niche particularly because it offers further global recognition of how important, diverse and sustainable this niche can be. To read up on all of the latest short domain news and discussions visit the section over at Namepros.
When four letter domain sales are reported there is always a general misconception that every single one of the 456,976 combinations can be considered a letter letter letter letter domain and as such all be valued in the same way. This isn’t the case. There are 59,635 four letter words in the English Dictionary and its these words that can have a massive impact on sales data if not taken into consideration.
For those of you that read Reece’s blog over at 4 Letter Noob you should have already seen his new price guide for February 2008. Reece has kindly offered to provide readers with a file containing his additional LLLL.com analysis data but has had problems uploading it to his own hosting. I have uploaded the file for him so if you would like to take a look ‘RICHT CLICK & SAVE TARGET AS’.
I raised this question the other day at Namepros after browsing the marketplace to analyse the availability of LLLL.com domains. It seems that demand for quad letter domains has slowed considerably at Namepros and the users that are offering domains for sale at a fixed price or in the offers only section are being forced to bump threads or reduce prices in an effort to gain interest from prospective buyers.
Reading other peoples blogs is a favourite pass time of mine. I try to stay as up to date as possible when it comes to everything I am interested in. I also think its important to help others find the vital information, tips, tricks and trade secrets needed to be successful in any Internet business whether it be domain speculation and investment, affiliate marketing, website design or search engine optimisation.
Just a quick note to say that I have updated the list library and added the list I used to scan all of the premium .net domains before the buyout at the beginning of the month. As always I will publish more lists in this section of the site as and when I have them!
Lorenzo (also known as ItalianDragon) pointed out the latest DNJournal sales report today to highlight some of the excellent four letter domain sales to be seen this month. These sales tend to go largely unnoticed, overshadowed by the huge sales of generic dictionary names such as cruises.co.uk - the biggest .uk sale ever reported which changed hands for £560,000 ($1,099,798).
Its been a few days since I looked at the ‘buy now’ prices of 4 letter dot com domains at TDNAM and it seems that LLLL.com’s for less than $100 are long gone. Just a few days ago there were still names available to ‘buy now’ for $75-$99. The minimum buy now price for a LLLL.com at TDNAM is now $119 and there is only one at that price. There are three domains available at $125, thirteen at $145, twenty three at $149 and two at $199 each. The price then escalates to over $248 per domain after this!
