A new report sheds light on the health of the domain name aftermarket for short .com domain names.
Domain name valuation service EstiBot and short domain name brokerage GGRG have released a report on the state of the market for short domain names.
The report calculates the total market value of all domain names within the LL.com, LLL.com, LLLL.com, LN.com/NL.com, NN.com, NNN.com, NNNN.com, NNNNN.com namespaces. It also gives a prognosis on the health and liquidity of each market, as well as the 5th percentile price. The 5th percentile represents two standard deviations below the mean sales price, so this is effectively a floor price for domain names in the category. (The report does not provide median prices.)
Despite having only 676 possible combinations, the report values the total market of LL.com domain names ($2.7 billion) at more than any other category because of their high realized prices.
The report values the 17,576 LLL.com namespace and the 456,976 LLLL.com namespace at the same $2 billion each. This suggests that LLL.com names are worth about 25 times as much as LLLL.com names.
Unsurprisingly, the report finds that many short domain name categories have registered sharp price declines this year.
