Shorter is best is one thing my dad and mom have at all times instructed me rising up. Whereas this will maintain true when it comes to peak, it’s not at all times the case in the case of some domains.
Over time, I’ve owned a number of three letter .com domains (NLC, MYV, SHS, KJP, RER, PJP, RSN, and possibly a number of I’ve forgotten about). LLL.com domains are typically in excessive demand, and so they can promote for quantities that vary from 5 figures to seven figures, relying on the letters and demand for them. Whereas the three letter .com area title market is sort of liquid, not all 3 letter domains are investment-grade.
Somebody shared the tweet beneath from Shifang Yuan from Yuming.com. The tweet got here in response to another person’s question concerning the worth of two forms of .IO domains:
I invested in 2,000 https://t.co/65bXadXOyE domains from 2018 to 2020 and so they didn’t promote properly. In 2020, we gave up area title renewals at a lack of about $100,000.

For the previous couple of years, .IO domains have turn into fairly common. NameBio shows fairly a number of substantial .IO area title gross sales within the final three years. Generally used one phrase .IO domains are in demand with startups, and so they have turn into an funding grade class of domains.
Whereas there are a number of 3 letter .IO domains amongst the highest gross sales in NameBio, probably the most frequent of these gross sales are additionally one phrase .IO domains (like Solar.IO, Mad.IO, Child.IO, ACE.IO, and a number of other others). Apparently, the marketplace for different 3 letter .IO domains shouldn’t be as sturdy.
I have no idea what 3 letter .IO domains have been purchased by Shifang Yuan, so I can’t actually provide perception on the names that have been bought. Nevertheless, the concept that investing in 3 letter non-.com domains simply because they’re quick, won’t be one.
