Handful of LLLL.com – PNGR.com, as an example (price is public), then most of the others have the dreaded (to some people) vowels or the letter V. Roughly half were purchased to flip, and the other half are developed in other extensions and I expect to hold them for awhile.
A few NNN.org – 199.org, as an example. I wasn’t in the market to buy these, but the price was right for a flip, which will probably happen in the next few months.
A few LLL.net – XXG.net, as an example. Similar to the NNN.org, I wasn’t in the market to buy these, and I just sold my last LLL.net domains earlier this year, but I believe I got them at a price to justify my time for a near-term flip.
A few CCC.com – LL4.com and 0RR.com (NLL), as examples of the best two. The 0’s and o’s confuse me, but sales on CCC.com domains with a repeating letter are pretty crazy this year. Crazy high, that is – 1AA.com for $5,020, 9NN.com for $4,520, II4.com for $2,009, and LL3.com for $2,309.
A few two word .com domains, none of which will make me rich, but I’m confident I’ll get a decent return on them, whether I decide to flip them in the next 6 months or hold out for the next 6+ years. A couple examples:
- RestoreOrder.com – Sounds like a political campaign slogan. A couple businesses use variants for their organization businesses.
- ShippingLines.com – A shortener or upgrade name for quite a few businesses, and it’s commercial in nature, with a nearly $4 CPC. In the same line of transportation/logistics business as my Transporting.com acquisition in Q2.
Thematic.com – Examples of the current uses online for this word include a popular WordPress theme at ThematicTheme.com, a PE firm at ThematicCapital.com, developed sites at the .net, .org and .co, and many sites around thematic mapping, the thematic apperception test (whatever that is!), and more.
QEI.com – It feels a little strange to be buying an LLL.com for a price that is higher than most of the other LLL.com I sold earlier this year (Q1 sales, Q2 sales) of arguably similar quality (VJZ.com, VYH.com, OJQ.com), but I have to accept that the market shifted, and compared to current conditions, I think I got a good price. I like the fact that this was purchased from the end user that had used the domain for over a decade, so perhaps there is some pent up demand…..users with this abbreviation that have tried to acquire it over the years, only to be turned down?
