I’ve been seeing some very nice 3L .COMs hit Flippa over the last few months. As most people already know, 3L and 4L .COMs have seen some serious sales activity this year and that doesn’t seem to be slowing down. With names like QUA.com selling for $459,000, PAX.com selling for $200,000 and QJS.com for $150,000 to name a few (source DNJournal) buying a 3L .COM in the low five-figure range does have some very enticing factors to it.
As I’ve said many times before but I’ll just say it again for anyone new to this series since I’ve had a lot of new readers come onboard this year. I recommend investing in .COMs, this is the only proven market for buying and selling domains. There are a ton of new gTLDs out there and I personally have less than 10% of my portfolio invested in them, I think there could be potential there, but the market is far from proven so I consider these very high risk investments.
Okay, looks like I’m getting carried away so enough from me, let’s get to my top five domain picks from Flippa this week:
CLN.com – I really like this name, it’s way out of the range I buy in personally, I think this is a very solid name that could sell in the six-figure range if you’re patient enough to wait for the right buyer to come along.
LOV.com – one character away from an absolutely monster name, still a nice 3L .COM with beautiful vowel in the middle. Not much more to say here, at $40,000 with four days to go it looks like this one is going to sell for big bucks.
NOY.com – another nice 3L .cOM, probably not as good as the other two above but still a solid name and at $19k with seven days to go.
Downloads.net – I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I’m not a huge fan of .NET domains. I think it is very hard to find buyers for .NET names and if you do invest in the space, know that you may never get a return on your investment. That being said, if you want to dabble in the .NET market this is one of the best but at $10,000 be prepared to be patient to flip this name.
CreditTips.com – nice two-word .COM in a big space.
