    Hello everyone,

    I know three letter English word .com domain will be of great value.

    But what about a .XYZ one?

    Thank you!

    Like all things, depends on what it is

    SEX, BET, YOU, TAX, VAN, CAR, CAT, DOG, APP, GYM, TOM ...biddable, lovely

    DZX, RIW, COH, ZOQ, QZG, WWZ, PGN, ACM, LLR, AAY, TVP ...not so lovely

    You can't really get away with random letters like in a 3 letter "dot com" ...the word must be attractive. If not, you may be waiting a while

    Thanks for your replies! What if the word is a top 2% most often used word?

    Thanks

    OK, it's the last three characters of my username (my first name, but it is also an English word if in lowercase)...
    The reason why I hesitated to say the word is because I am not sure if I am like I will use this domain for myself, but if a good price comes I will consider selling it.
    Thank you!

    I would say, on average, low-mid $x,xxx. Low $xx,xxx to the right buyer...

    At the same time, there doesn't seem to be a floor for LLL.xyz prices. Many are selling for low $xxx - even good ones like PIN, USA, CAR, and WFH. So, I suppose it all depends on your willingness to hold out and your ability to attract and negotiate with the right buyer.

    I don't like the name as a word, because in English it just means one of these: ( https://m.media-amazon.com/images/I/817RjT77c0L._AC_SL1500_.jpg ); which is not very inspiring as a brand. But, I do like the name as an abbreviation. It's a good combination of letters. It can stand for Podcast Advertising Network, Public/Private Access Network, Public Affairs Network, etc.

    .xyz seems to be a hit with crypto brands. So, if you can identify a buyer in that niche, or if you get lucky and a crypto token or network ends up using your name, I think that's where you might find your most lucrative buyer.

    Cheers! :)

    Hello hxp,

    Thank you for this excellent explanation. I am not a domain investor actually, but it makes sense to me. And I am more clear about the value of the domain. I will think more about it.

    Thank you very much!

    Give me the plurals. vans.com, cars.com, cats.com, dogs.com, gyms.com, apps.com better than singular imo. More uses. More end users. More valuable? Not sure. vans.com better than van.com for me. I could be wrong. You probably wouldn't go to van.com to buy a van (where you'll be looking at different vanS to buy) but you might go to vans.com.

    I'd take "van" over "vans" ...like taking "taxi" or "taxis" (generally). Then again, depends on use

    If I was a car dealer, I'd take "prestige cars dot com" over "prestige car dot com", as the plural indicates I have more than one car to offer

    Most of these domains will fall under registry premium where registration, renew and transfer all will cost you dearly ranging from $$$ to $$$$$. One of the reasons why they all are still available in the market. Imagine you purchase one of the above domains say for US$5K and then every year you have to pay same amount as the renewal fee.

    The beauty of @DNGear domains portfolio is most of her domains even premium one have a normal $10 per annual renewal fee making it a very attractive proposition for the end-users. It really needs lots of effort and patience to find quality one word or short and affordable XYZ domains.

    I think a 3L dictionary word .xyz domain can now be worth $x,xxx - $xxx,xxx, depending on the word. The values may go up in the future when the demand for .xyz domains increases.

    I have a few 3L dictionary word .xyz domains. One of them was mentioned and considered as a biddable and lovely domain by jhm in this thread. The range of renewal fees of my .xyz domains is between $10 and $2xx, which should be affordable by business users. I target to sell them for $xxx,xxx each.

    I didn't sell a 3L .xyz till now. IMHO, It could sell in between 9888 - 29888, if its not a registry premium domain. Thanks

    I would not recommend buying into hype FAB. I don't see the value being develop.

    I think most likely "hype and burn" intend to rush newbies into joining, and buying up inventory and then... crash.

    Without valuable development, newbies should not join in. More likely a scheme and those sales are probably numbers throwing out to get the excitement.

    It should crash within months just like most other extensions without uses.

    xyz was 5th ranked gltd in 2019 and had 3 million registrations it may have dropped to half that no longer 99c or what ever the lure was but lots of players.

    Right now it looks like its hyped up. You can invest, but its not at a mature stage yet to determine if it will hold.

    If you are right you make big, if wrong, you lose big. :)

    I just saw your link ..some of the domains are dropped . Some are selling way below what it was sold in 2015-2016 . Looks like the math is "NOT" strong after all. More likely a hype and is dying!
