Aside from the sale of Jaho.com that was finalised last week there has been little significant quad letter domain activity at the main arenas according to DNJournal’s mid-late June sales report. In fact there have been just eight reported LLLL.com sales over $2k and a mere smattering of global contender transactions.

I’ve been waiting for a sale like this for a while now. The sale of a quad letter domain for a 5 figure sum that has nothing to offer other than itself. Take a look at the stats, it has no Page Rank, isn’t DMOZ listed, has an Alexa rank of over eight million, and after checking archive.org has never hosted a developed website other than countless holding pages offering the domain for sale.

I was sifting through some of my drafts and almost deleted this article which I’ve been meaning to complete for a while now. I decided some of the points to be made back in April are still relevant now. After I wrote ‘Still ‘biting’ for bargains!‘ I thought it would be good to look at the market from a different view point. The question that springs to my mind when so many people are finding so many bargains at so many market venues is, ‘why are there so many?’

Last week I wrote an article about an auction that had been started for 4200 LLLL.com domains. The auction ended today at $62,300. A fair chunk of change but alas the reserve was not met. I would hazard a guess that the reserve was somewhere around the $100,000 mark so I think the final bid was quite a way off.

SoldThe mid June Namepros Live Auction took place last night where plenty of names were up for grabs and some impressive sales were completed. There didn’t seem to be as many bulk four letter domain auctions this time round but there was still plenty of interest in domains of the short variety and many sold for a lot more than what is considered their minimum wholesale value.

An auction for sixteen triple repeating LLLL.com domains ended at $10,000 on BQB today. The owner of the domains, Reece Berg, founder of BQB, has been building a portfolio of ‘rare’ triple repeating domains for the past four or five months but in recent weeks has seen few transactions when he listed them for sale in the Namepros fixed price marketplace.

Two CentsThe latest price guide from 4 Letter Noob is out and it brings with it more bad news for quad letter domain investors… or does it? Although the minimum wholesale price has plummeted a further 24% to just $25 I am a strong believer that patience is a virtue and the future holds much promise.

An auction for 4200 four letter domains was started today on Ebay. That works out at 0.92% of the entire LLLL.com market and is certaily a substantial amount of domains. Although a little out of date the current understood minimum wholesale value of a single four letter .com is $33. This puts the minimum wholesale value of this auction at $138,600! However a vast number of domains on offer are triple premiums which would push this valuation up to well over $200,000.

Once again there was plenty of interest in short domains last night at the Namepros live auction. Every collection of premium LLLL.nets received bids and sold! It was good to see them holding ground at a little over reg fee.

DNJournal reported a huge list of quad letter domain sales including 15 LLLL.com’s 5 LLLL.net’s, 3 LLLL.org’s, 1 LLLL.mobi and even a LLLL.de yesterday. An impressive amount of four letter domain sales which should boost the confidence of any investor in this niche considering the recent decline in reseller values.
