Hello, whats going on with .ca domains. Ive seen multiple freeones. 3 letter numerics to 3 letter domains. But it seems sales arent good and you can grab 1 with 17 dollars. Anyone here with knowledge, what you think is it worth invest wise. Thanks -Wilbert

Something like "QZX" I wouldn't bother with, but if you're talking 3 letter words like hit, car, bat, day, red, sex, net, dog, cat, get, rob, yes, gif, ten paired in a CA, totally useable and nice. If they're something along the lines of RAC, FDA, LOE etc (slightly better on the usability end, for company abbreviations), I wouldn't be over the moon with them IMO. My confidence would be with the likes of a nice ORG, in terms of consistency, if going down that 3 letter road. That being said, I haven't sold or bought any CA domains in the past, can't really talk from experience. If someone has, their input may be more meaningful than mine

I totally agree with you. I checked the list earlier today, I automatically blocked qwzx as you said.I hate those letters :S. Canadian domains are in my mind very good for local people and businesses, but I just couldnt find the value for myself. Hopefully someone finds them for use!

Don't know much about 3L .ca's but when I was brokering single and 2word .ca's they sold for pretty decent prices and pretty often. I'm not sure about now since the start of the pandemic/inflation, but a few years back there was a good demand for them. Prices were less than .com's but definitely better than ngtlds.

Just remember that there are very smart people in all TLDs and what you might see as "low prices" are actually market prices due to low or non-existent demand for those domains.

Junk LLLs are garbage in .CA, but watch the money fly when something good like ISO, STM, TIA, OUT, GRO, or DCI pop up on the TBR. Same with junk words, they are dead in .CA, but check out old TBR drops like Pixel, Aura, Ranger, or Matrix and get ready to fight with the whales.

In all TLDs it is what it is, and if you walk into a limited-market ccTLD like .CA using a .COM ruleset, you will be living in a cardboard box in no time. It is what it is.
