Four letter domain names are the new three letter domain names.
Now that all of the three letter .com bargains have been picked over, it seems investors are on the hunt for the next best thing…four letter domain names.
Sedo sold a whopping 100 four character domain names last week.
Prices ranged from $749 for bzbs.com and ysyg.com to $25,000 for hips.com.
Many of the domain names that were clearly sold to investors sold for several thousand dollars, which might start being a floor for four character .com domain names.
This would explain why Afternic is sending out inquiries to people asking them to price their listed four letter domain names. I suspect they’re seeing an equal surge in demand.
If you need more evidence of a surge in four letter .com demand, here you go.
