There is only one four letter domain in the DNJournal Domain Sales Report this week. Show.org was sold privately for $13K but its a dictionary word and shouldn’t be included in any reseller sales analysis. In any case, an encouraging sale for any .org enthusiast although in my opinion the plural ’shows’ may better serve the needs of the new owner but it really does depend on how the name will be used in the future.
Sedo simply doesn’t like to post information about failed sales or auctions that did not meet reserve, it’s simply not good marketing. Unfortunately for us it makes it very difficult to report these failed transactions. I missed the final few minutes of the Bond.com auction that ended on the 24th April but thankfully Michael of DomainMagnate commented today letting me know just how far off the mark many people were with its valuation.
When I entered the four letter domain market I started out with LLLL.com’s but quickly began investing in other domain extensions because I think it is important to understand every aspect of your market. Activity surrounding one domain extension can heavily affect another as we have seen with LLLL.net’s in recent times.
After a few weeks off, coming back to news of a new WordPress release meant, as always, another slightly reserved approach to upgrading to the latest version.
