    Hello Everybody,

    As per the thread title, I would like to discuss with you and get the advice from professionals in domaining about the near/far future of LLLL.Com Domains (Random, Quad & Chinese)

    We know that the floor price for random LLLL.Com domains was exceeding the $300 limit easily few months ago but nowadays, i see that $200 is hardly reached.

    Kindly share your thoughts, whether you decide to buy, sell what you have or wait (predicting an increase in value)

    I look forward to hear your thoughts, decisions and advices.

    Thank you very much.

    So, what are your thoughts about random llll.com, they reached $350 few months ago and now hardly reach $200, is it going to go down more and more?

    You've got to research and make your own decisions, then you will stick to them.

    Just my opinion:

    Average price will be less than $100 for random low quality llll.com, it could happen in 1-5 months- because in summer prices always down+ a lot of "high quality" stuff produced by chinese bubble ( 6n.coms, 7n.coms, 5l.com) will go in drop in august-november.

    Reason is very simple- there are only very few names of poor quality which selling to endusers. So why do you have to pay a lot for them+ pay renewals for very small possibility to make money.

    However if we are talking about quality names- demand is huge- just check this crazy prices resellers paying for quality llll.coms $XXXX on namejet, snapnames, namepros. I think prices for them will go down as well but not so dramatically.
    And sure, this names are good long-term investment- because a lot of big endusers interested in such names.

    But if everything will go down, then there should be no reason for keeping llll.com domains, Selling them now will be safer than selling them after a year. Do you agree?

    it depends on what names you talking about- if low quality - sure, sell it and wait for cheap prices.
    But i, personally not looking to sell my llll.coms, because mostly waiting for endusers on them and i am not sure that i would be able to get such quality later when prices went down, i bought them not for small flipping profit, but like investment. Mostly sold names i was not looking to keep.
     
  11. I'm a firm believer in supply and demand. Every day new markets are entering the internet space. It may not happen tomorrow and it may not happen in the next five months but eventually I feel that these names WILL have substantial value just due to the limited supply of them.

    Personnally, I stopped dealing with CP. I don't understand that market and did not feel confortable investing in that category.

    Regarding "Random", if they are not pronounceable, I stay away. But anything with a pronounceable pattern like CVCV, CCVC, VCCV, VCVC, I like a lot and I think they will always have a high value and a high end-user potential.

    Regarding "Western Quad Premium", its no secret, that is the sector I prefer. I now own over 30 of these and I think they will always keep their value of $500+ .. we don't see many of them sold for less .. sellers always set a reserve price of $500+ because they know they have potential to be used by companies as acronym.

    I also have the same belief like you about supply and demand.
    we are here predicting the value of llll.com domains and discussing to see if its wise to keep llll.com domains or to sell them.
    As you know few months ago, if you have 100 random lllls, you would sell them at $300~350 each while now its at $200 each, so its a pure loss of $15k which is not a small value. Do you think they will go up again?

    I agree with you about the "Western Quad Premium"
    for Random ones, why do you stay away? do you think that they would reach to $50 each or so?

    There was a flood of LLLL coms to hit the market too fast ,once price started jumping people wanted to sell, the problem is about 2-3 weeks ago, there was a massive flood of LLLL coms hitting the market which caused the market to go fluctuate and go down . Keep holding on to them and I think you see market shoot up soon by this decemeber i predict $400 range minimum for a bad combo LLLL
    Just thoughts!

    Regarding random ones, I simply think it is a risky market right now. There are a lot of better investment available. They are only traded from domainers to domainers and currently not getting much attention. I think it has not yet reached the bottom and will continue to drop.

    If someone wants to play with liquid 4L, there are great opportunities with other categories of 4L.com that are less speculative than the random ones.

    If you can afford to hold them, hold! Web users are mostly from MOBILE / TABLETS, and therefore the shorter domain the better .

    Randoms are not born the same either, so you'd need few more categories.

    For example, I own Q/O/L/D dot com and T/U/T/H dot com. Are they random? I wouldn't swap them for 3 chips each, because they are fantastic pronounceables and very meaningful (gold/cold and tooth). I sold a/H/u/b dot com for mid $x,xxx. Was that a random? No it was article+ very valuable positive dictionary word.

    And even for non-pronounceable randoms, there might be more categories. Like 3 western prems + w or v, or even u, could still be very good.

    True randoms would be the ones that are hard to make sense of both in the West and in China, like xjuv or qvye

    I would be willing to hold them if they will really hit the $400 range each by the end of this year. so don't you expect a massive drop to them?

    I am talking about a case that you are already holding them not about to start playing. so if you are holding them and don't wish to be in a loss, would you sell now at $150 loss each? or wait for a good profit?

    No, i don't refer to the pronounceables, i refer to randoms, examples like: e/q/r/r and j/v/v/y.. what do you think?

    short domain market is very unpredictable. Cannot say which domain will give you high ROI. There's a lot of examples in the market where people made good ROI with the worst domains. As far Where 4L .com concern I prefer all kind of domains but I'm staying away from chips.
    CVCV VCVC and other pronounceable patterns are more likely for brands and that's y investors happily invest in those patterns but many buyers also consider short random letter domains which are an acronym of their company name. So both have value and ROI in their own terms.
