2016 llll.com 4 Letter Liquid Domain Analysis

Four letter domain names have officially become the new liquid digital asset. These domains could be brought and quickly sold in any auction for quick liquid cash. They are considered as good as cash with rather steady minimums for premium and non premium names.

We compiled sales data of 4 letter domain name sales for August, September and October 2016 from all major auction houses Namejet, Godaddy, Sedo, Dropcatch, Flippa, Dynadot and Ebay and summarized the results below and in a report.

In order to normalize the sales data we divided the domains into 3 different categories

  1. llll.com premium (no vowel no v)
  2. llll.com non premium (with vowel with v)
  3. llll.com outliers (sales over $1,750 USD for premium and sales over $1,000 for non premium)

Summary Analysis

llll.com premium sales were scarce in all the auction houses except for Namejet.

During this 3 month period Namejet sold 290 of the 367 llll.com premium domains (~79% of all sales).

Total Number of Premium llll.com Sales : 367 (14.5% of all sales)

Total Number of Non Premium llll.com Sales: 2,533 (85.5% of all sales)
