Coming Soon… The January 2008 Price Guide

The December 2007 price guide was a success and I can only hope to improve on it 🙂

 The January price guide will include a more thorough analysis of the elements mentioned in the December edition and I’ll try my best to make it as easy to follow and as easy on the eyes as possible.

If anyone would like to suggest additional subsections (example: triple premiums without a particular letter) be examined, feel free to let me know here or on Namepros. I want to make this guide as close to a LLLL.com Bible as is possible given the limited information that is available in the domain name industry.

 Work on the guide will begin on December 24th and it will hopefully be completed in early January. I’ll also be finishing the LLLL.net scans over the holidays, so you’ll have lots of new info coming your way in January!

I will of course continue to make updates in the meantime on whatever I find related to LLLL.com domaining. We’re starting to enter a new age now as LLLL.coms begin to be more and more accepted. Prices continue to rise as does interest in owning LLLL.coms… What a year 2008 will be!

  1. Hey Reece,
    firstly, I really enjoy reading 4letternoob – also, the name sums me up quite well.

    I have a question that you may / may not be able to answer.

    Today I bid on several llll.com names – all of which I lost.

    I don’t really understand why they sold for the figures they did:

    fsbe.com $505
    ivii.com $314
    bytz.com $1010
    urjo.com $405
    dlpi.com $390

    Clearly to achieve these prices, more than one person had to see each name as at least this valuable.

    My inclination would have been towards dlpi.com and ivii.com – I reckon they are great (and probably a steal at $3xx).

    I actually only bid to $150 on each of them, and so appear to be way off the mark.

    Any advice?

    Kind regards
    – rich

  2. Hi Rich,

    I’m glad to hear you like the 4letternoob and we’re all lucky to have you aboard with us 🙂

    ivii.com is a great name and I was bidding on it up until $250. I do think it could probably have hit $350+ had it not been sold so close to Xmas.

    urjo.com is the start of a whole new class of premium-priced pronounceables (CVVC and VCCV). Domainers are starting to appreciate pronounceables in these categories more and more, and indeed, a name like urjo.com is most certainly as pronounceable as a low grade CVCV, such as XEZE.com, yet such CVCV’s are commonly sold for $500+.

    Bytz.com is a highly pronounceable CYCV, which is certainly as good as a medium-grade CVCV in this case. It’s also confusingly similar to “bytes” and would make a great name for a computer-related business. Since it’s not a word, it may be more desirable for a business, as landing a trademark on it would be considerably easier.

    dlpi.com is – as you said, about fair market value.

    fsbe.com did sell a bit on the high end having lesser premiums B and F, and super premiums E and S. Altogether, it makes for a fairly average quad premium LLLL.com, for which prices are generally in the $300-$450 range currently. Not excessively outside that range, but a bit on the high side. The fact that quality seems to have almost no bearing on whether a quad premium LLLL.com sells for $300 or $450 is frightening and does suggest that these names still have alot of growth left in them. I’m going to do a more thorough analysis of premium LLLL.coms in the next version of the price guide.

  3. Thanks very much for the analysis 🙂 – I am now, somewhat the wiser. Still, am going to have to brush up on what all this premium / super premium stuff is though!

  4. Nice one Reece! Keep up the good work!

    Rich (Quad Letter Domains) 🙂
