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.
I’ve noticed a few sales threads on Namepros recently that have received little interest from prospective buyers even though some of the domains on offer are of a reasonable quality. The majority of the domains in question are CVCV.info’s which were initially bought in bulk and should be fairly easy to shift considering their desirability and the current influx of high value CVCV.com sales. I personally have had much success in selling CVCV.info domains and am always seeking to invest in more.
Sitting in traffic a few days ago, initially I was oblivious to what was staring me in the face while I idly tapped along to music on the steering wheel. It was then that I had the idea of publishing evidence of four letter domains in use by end users when I noticed that the company van in front of me was utilising a quad letter domain!
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.
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.
