4 letter .com

 2:04 pm on Feb 3, 2010 (gmt 0)

Do ALL of them go over > $1,000 bucks?

I am looking to purchase a 4 letter domain name that is an acronym for my website. They are asking for $2,999 dollars.

I offered 700 bucks via email.

They said they couldnt even FW my offer to their manager if it didnt match at least 50%.

Is that their sales pitch? What do I do?

If you are not worried what the letters are you can pick up 4 letter .coms for $50-$100 in the expired auctions, however better letter combinations tend to fetch higher prices.

I've sold what I thought was a very mediocre 4 letter .com for $2,000 and conversely never had an enquiry on some of the ones I thought were much more likely to be wanted.

thanks for your response IanTurner. No, I am not looking for just random 4 letter names. Its pretty specific. But not the best to pronounce. Its an acronym for another domain I recently purchased.

Never mind! I spoke to the sales guy on the phone and negotiated. I brought down the price to $1,100 and paid for it. now im waiting for it to transfer.

It took me 2 phone calls and 5 emails :)

Jesus, how come this addiction doesnt go away? I promised myself not to buy a domain again ;) But this time I have big plans and will put many many hours on it :)

Hey aren't you the same chap that just quit your job? Shouldn't you be saving your money and cutting expenses?!?! ;-)

The addiction is hard to fight. I recently dropped 1k on a keyword.org thinking G still gave auto props to such names when folks searched for keyword. Particularly since the com and net were not in use. Guess things have changed since I don't show up until page 4. ;-)

hehe... Yes I am. Well I promised myself that this name will be my last one! lets see how long thatll last. Well I think I got a good deal and Ive developed an interesting website. Ill have to wait a bit to see how well that picks up :)

$1100 is a pretty good price for a four letters .com domain, nice deal mate. :)
