Ready for the World Cup?

As I am writing you this, the World Cup of soccer has just begun in Brazil and right downstairs, they just installed a giant screen for the soccer fans. The match currently on air is Portugal VS Germany and Portugal is losing … badly.

I usually do not care that much about soccer, but I admit that when the World Cup comes I love to follow the matches and support my team. Italy won this weekend against England (making me VERY proud):

Sorry, but I could not resist posting this picture 🙂

Going back to domains, last week I wrote an article about the status of the numeric market and I obtained some interesting articles in response that I thought I’d share with my readers. One is from Shane Cultra and another great one is from John Poole. They support a completely different theory regarding the future value of numeric .coms, stating that we are just about to enter a bull market.

Regardless of whoever is right, this week I wanted to try a different approach and send you a quick analysis of the best deals available at this moment, as we secured some new inventory under exclusive. This could be a great starting point if you are just starting to invest in domains.

Bouncy.com – $19,000 (price reduced)

– Why I like this name?

Because it is short, pronounceable, intuitive and extremely brandable and it comes in with a package of other extensions like .net, .org, .biz, .de and .eu. Whenever somebody is looking to start a business, you should always look to secure the complementary assets to protect the traffic directed to your brand.

– How much are similar names priced at?

Usually comparable assets of this quality, range from a minimum of $5k to over $50k.

Package of four 3 letter .com domains: VJZ.com, OJQ.com, VYH.com, UYR.com

– Why I like these names?

I do not personally like the names per se, but I do like the asking price – $48k for the package. At this asking price you can rarely go wrong since the floor price for LLL.com is close to $8k, making it one of the most reasonable price available for LLL.com on the market.

– How much are similar names priced at?

LLL.com can be very rarely found under $10k, and retail price often goes in the $15k to $30k range.

– What are the possible usage/benefits of owning this name?

Build a business that requires some “gravitas”. A three letter .com always gives a certain authority to your business. Think DHL.com or ABJ.com (abj.com is fictitious). Customers will think that your business has been around for a while whicj will in turn result in added credibility, and therefore more sales.

The other common usage for these domains would be obviously to park them and flip them for a higher price by selling them individually to end users or domain investors looking to pay above market price.

WQ.com – $500,000

– Why I like this name?
It is a two letter .com with letters that are considered premium in China. We already received offers in the hundred of thousands USD for this domain and it would be likely on sale not for long.
