NNL and LNN names are expiring and selling for four and five figures on Go Daddy

domain valuation

As I dive deeper into the mysteries of numeric .COMs, I’m finding that I also come across domains that are a combination of numbers and letters that get a lot of bidding activity. At first this was a bit of a head scratcher for me because when you look at the domain (or at least when I do) it doesn’t jump out at me as a four or five figure name.

But the reality is, no matter how you slice it, a domain name with 3 numbers or letters in it, or a combination of the two is valuable because of how short and memorable it is. Or at least that’s my current going theory.

Two domains caught my eye on Go Daddy this week, 72k.com which is currently at $9,192 with more than six days left in the auction and k37.com which is at $6,600 with more than five days to go. I think it’s safe to say that 72k.com is going to sell in the five figure range and I wouldn’t be surprised to see k37.com do the same.

It’s important to note that these are expired domains so there are two people out there who owned these names and probably had absolutely no idea what they were worth. For a domain investor, short names like these are becoming digital gold in many ways and while we tend to focus on NNN.coms and LLL.coms, this really illustrates about a combination of numbers and letters is still pretty darn valuable.

Have you bought or sold any short domains with a combination of number sand letters in them? It’s honestly not the kind of domain that crosses my mind when I’m looking at expired domains…but it’s definitely on my radar now!

    Good point on the shortness and memorability, radio test could be an issue though.

    Hi Morgan. I have bought and sold a number of three character .com domains over the past twenty years and they have certainly become more desirable by overseas buyers and have received more purchase inquiries in the past 12-18 months. I predict the overall value of the ccc.com and llll.com market to increase substantially by summer 2019. Now is the time to buy in these two niches.
