Happy Easter to all that celebrate. It seems like many of my domaining friends and enemies are Jewish so not sure Easter comes into play with many of the readers. And its also April Fools day but that day has become so cliche that its now no longer funny. Enough fake news around that April Fools is no longer special.
Today’s lesson is store of wealth. Maybe not so much a lesson but another “here’s what I do”. Everyone has a different approach to domain investing but one of mine is buying names that I can sell quickly for the same value I bought them or more, minus commission. I think LLLL.com are safe assets with a limited bottom and a somewhat limited upside. Instead of putting money in the bank I put it in LLLL.coms. I have been acquiring since 2007 and the patterns and letters that I like really haven’t changed. When I see one that fits my parameters I buy it and tuck it away. My portfolio keeps growing and I hope some day to have 1000 high quality LLLL.com. I probably have only 70 to 100 right now (haven’t counted in a while) between my two portfolios. I am sure that if I put them up for auction I would raise more than 100K. Yes they have come down in value since the Chinese rush but they also don’t cost as much. Andy many I bought before the rush. Although the patterns I like still can cost $1500 to $2500 right now wholesale.
Why don’t you buy one word and two word .coms and do the same thing? I like the safety and measurability of LLLL.coms. There are so many traded they have established value. It lets me know whether the price is good or bad based on past sales. It also lets me measure value based on letter quality. In short, they are the commodities of our industry. Commodities are good for holding value. What patterns do you like? I would try and keep it a secret but its not much different than everyone else and I talk about it all the time. I like the first three letters to be good western consonants and the last letter to be C or A. I will buy other patterns if the price is very very good. I won’t touch V, usually X, Z, Q, and don’t like J or K in general. I bought a name that had a J in it and ended in A but it was under $200. That’s the only reason I bought it.
Yes, I get offers every day for a few hundred dollars and they never respond when I give them my price but I’m cool with that. It’s pretty easy to see who is sending out fishing emails and who is interested in buy the name. I sold only 3 last year but the total was in the $15,000 range and that let me buy 10-15 more good names in exchange for 3. I figure if I can do that every year combined with my continued buying and I’ll have a nice little nest egg some day. Obviously nothing is guaranteed but I feel its more guaranteed than buying a bunch of $100 names at auction. And its only a part of my portfolio. The rest is one and two word dot coms and some flyers. Just like everyone else. Here are today’s names. Click on them for current price
