    We researched top 100 brands this year and found 11 of the were 5 letters. The names are :
    Apple
    Intel
    Cisco
    Adobe
    Gucci
    Baidu
    Shell
    Chase
    Fedex
    Haier
    Lowes

    Since an 11% is quite a good performance. Many other companies like Tesla, Viber, canva... have also chosen 5 Letter words for their brand names so any beginner domain name investor make the 5L.com more appealing.

    All 4L.coms are reserved, so logically many assume 5L.com could be the next big thing. But there is a one big problem for its being a first choice.

    In order to find the interest of the Namepros community, last week, we ran a thread to see how many 5l.coms People had. There were some decent interests and quite an amusing result. We collected over 1000 names. Maybe that’s what we could do with our ENZNI.com a 5 L.com domain we registered a year ago.

    Simply put, There are 375 million domains registered so far and mathematics has a tool to compute the the total possibility of all 5l.coms which is about 12 million. This number is quite ridiculous. Hardly there could be tens of thousands of 5L.com s registered till now.

    Just as there are interest in the investors community, there is certainly some interest in the end customer starting out a new brand and trying to find a catchy name for his brand. But he has a choice, and the choice could be in millions of catchy 5L.com

    The world runs on the principle of economics, Price is a factor of demand and supply. The supply of 5L is just too much now, and with the new gtlds and cctlds the supply market has gone even larger thus eliminating the chances of big 5l.com trades

    Very nice. Thank you for the analysis.

    If 11% are 5L, what are the rest?

    Maybe you could share your list of brands that you worked from?

    Sorry but that's a bad piece of analysis. It is clear that atleast half of those names you have listed were chosen because they are 1 word names not because they are 5Ls. If you have a short one word .com everyone already knows that is valuable. I know as I hold one. You can't compare a domain like hfjfu.com with Apple.com just because they both have 5 characters.

    Agree

    People have their own agenda. They will think someone will pay millions for their 5L even that does not make any sense to anyone.

    People need to come out of fantasy land and start living in real world.

    Sooner we realize, better for us.

    I only see three single word name in below list.

    But I agree that Guldp.com is not worth of anything. Where I will be happy to sit on Gulfo.com for 10 years.
