  1. The market for three-letter .COM's is well established with even the worst letter combinations routinely selling for five-figure fees. In the past twelve months, a couple of three-letter .COM domain names have even sold for seven-figure fees. Today, we are able to reveal that another three-letter .COM has sold for a seven-figure fee.

    The domain in question is Yes.com, a name that is being sold by Swiss company Yes International AG. Yes was founded in 1999 with the goal of creating a global brand and clearing system for interactive radio and TV. Based on previous screenshots of Yes.com, this project was closed in 2013.

    The domain sale was independently confirmed earlier today.

    It's been reported to us that the sales price was around 4.5 million Euros, which equates to around $5.54 million at the time of writing. This would make Yes.com the second-largest three-letter .COM sale ever, only beaten by the $14 million sale of Sex.com. It would also make this the largest sale of 2018, surpassing the recently confirmed $1.2 million sale of Super.com.

    As you might expect for such a common English word, there are plenty of companies called "Yes." These include an Israeli TV company and an Indian bank, both of which have several thousand employees. The term "Yes" also has over five hundred exact, live trademarks.

    The domain's WHOIS details are yet to transfer over to reflect its new owners, which means that we currently have very few clues as to the identity of the new owner.

    Thanks to James Booth (@BoothDomains) for the tip.

    Some 7 figure sales, you think 'how did it go for that' for yes dot com, probably worth every penny.

    Fantastic domain name.

    Every name are unique I completely agree. Sale price also based on various factors including buyer's budget and negotiation skill of seller.

    I been holding following names since more than 1 year. I had good feeling because of very positive touch. Just sharing because of similar item to this sale found in my little portfolio.

    G/O/Y/E/S/./COM

    Thanks
