Taking on board a suggestion made by Reece of BQB to diversify, I thought I would take a look at areas of the five letter domain market to assess how it is developing. Ultimately the success of four letter domains will make a noticeable difference in other short domain areas. I may well post more of this kind of article if they get a good response so please let me know with the occasional comment if this information is useful to you!
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).
I’m finding it hard keeping the site up-to-date with the available premium LLLL.net scans so I thought I would write just one blog post and keep it up-to-date with a list of all of my scans and of course the last scan I have done. Here are the lists:
The list I published an hour ago is now out of date! A further 643 domains have been registered in the past hour! There are now only 5700 left. I have re-run the list of available domains for those of you who still want to buy some. To see the list CLICK HERE!
This is crazy! All of a sudden people are going mental for premium LLLL.net’s. My last scan two weeks ago showed 15,000+ available and I anticipated a growth rate of 2000 per month resulting in an August 2008 buyout. How wrong could I be! Over 7000 premium 4 letter dot net domains have been registered in the last 2 days!
In an effort to understand in which direction the LLLL.net market is heading and to understand its growth, every month I will carry out a scan of all premium LLLL.net’s. In the future if (when) all premium four letter dot net’s have been registered I will expand my search and scan all 456,976 possible combinations to analyse the entire market. For now though I will focus on quad premium names until they are all registered.
Everyone expected the prices of LLLL.com’s to increase after the buyout and they did. There has been a good, steady increase in prices over the holiday season. It seems that no one could have predicted the increase in prices we are seeing this month though! Prices are currently ‘through the roof’! It seems Reece of Four Letter Noob may need to update his four letter price guide sooner than expected!
Its a fact, no one likes the letter Q. Of all of the ‘bad letters’ that quad letter domain investors try to avoid this is the main culprit. Why is that?
Just recently there has been a massive amount of four letter domain posts started in the Domains For Sale - Auctions forum over at Namepros. Not unusual really because I have seen varying levels of LLLL.com activity in that area of the NP marketplace over the last few months whilst observing quad letter domains for sale. So why am I writing this post I hear you ask? Well, its the price at which these domains have been listed at and are selling at in this location that interesting.
