I've been looking around WHT at domain names and what some people are asking for them. I've seen posts that state .net is worth 50% of .com and so on all the way down to .cc and .ws domains. I've seen users ask for $100 for a 3 character domain name.
Having said that, what makes a short domain name that has no traffic and no actual name worth something?
For example a 3 letter domain name like bob.com is useful and could be worth a lot (bob is a radio station here). Maybe in the mid 1000's. What I'm wondering is what makes xqd.com worth anything other than being short?
please note I'm just using those letters randomly. If it actually is someone's domain name here I apologize.
Should I register a name like xqd.com if I see it comes available?
Lastly are the 3 character domains worthwhile? Last week I could have registered a0k.net but chose not to. Probably a dumb move on my part.
well, there seems to be a mania for short .com's and to be honest rightly so.... This is because they have portensial.... All domain have portensial into becoming developed but specific words have more portensial then others... Say for example if you wanted to develope a website like a hosting company and you decide to call your selfs "BEST WEB HOSTING" you may be interested in the domain www.bwh.com as its short and easy to remember and with 1, 2 and 3 letter domains you can be creative and name your selfs to match the domains.... .coms are the leader in internet domains dut to the fact that it gained popularity first and is inbedded in everyones minds so if you wanted to visit a website on cars one of the first thing you will do is type cars.com and not cars.net or .org.......
