    I have a few 5L domains in mind that I'm thinking of purchasing. Some are in the category VCVCV, others CVCVC and one is CVVCV (pronounceable and brandable in my opinion). Should I go for it? Do you think the market for this category will be better or worse in 2018? Do you have reported sales or get offers for your domains?

    Thanks in advance,
    Merakilous

    I have been doing well with cvcvc names, but i paid no more than reg fee for each one.

    Can i ask what your looking to spend on these names?

    If reg fee then go for it, i have seen a growing demand for these names in the last few months.

    Feel free to drop me a pm with the names after you purchase them, id be interested to know what they are

    For a good pronounceable 5L, you can't really go wrong if you pay reg. fees.
    9$ for a possible return of $250 to $1000 is a good bet.

    If you need to ask...stop buying or stop asking, your move.

    I have TUPIZ.com

    Is this what you mean by CVCVC domain?

    Yes.
    C stands for consonant and V for vowel.

    Frankly, when I bought this, I had no idea that I was buying a CVCVC domain. I just bought it because it sounded cool & was previously used as a magazine brand.

    I understand that this is not appraisal section, but if anybody wants to give their opinion, then feel free to respond or send PM.

    I can ask and I can buy...i'm not asking for permission, i'm asking for advice from experienced members, I wanna know their experience. That's all. If you don't want to share anything regarding this thread you can move on to a different one.

    I tend to look at any unregistered domain with suspicion. How come it's still available if it's any good ?

    I guess CVCVC would make sense since they are also "easy on tongue"

    I gave you my experience in my post. I understand if you don't get it, just try to get it.

    Every domain was unregistered at some point mate......:xf.smile:

    I sold my first hand registered on this forum, for $250, within 4 days!

    So 25x return in 4 days is not bad.

    You just have to register something sensible, which will fetch a good resale value.

    I was searching for expired domains & this just popped up. I guess it'll definitely have some premium value.

    Yes but we are not in 1996, we are in 2017 and 130 million domains are registered in .com alone. The .com zone has been mined to the death by thousands of speculators over the course of two decades. If you find a name that nobody claimed for $10, ask yourself how you are going to resell it for more. It could happen. Maybe it is just a question of timing, being at the right place at the right time.
    Of course, there are exceptions like recent drops, but a good name shouldn't remain unregistered for years.
    The yet unknown domain names we are talking about must have been scanned hundreds of times, yet discarded by domainers. Maybe there is a reason. Just saying.
    Now the names may be pronounceable and fairly brandable, but that still doesn't mean there is a buyer. Millions of decent names are waiting for a buyer that will never come, such is the reality of our trade.

    Kate make a good point, as always. Watching 5 / 6 letter selling for 2k+, reg-fee domains look like a good deal so a plan and caution are important.

    I picked Uneqld for reg-fee.
