I recently closed a sale for $4,000 with Domain Name Sales brokering for the domain name, s138.com. As I alluded to more than 6 months ago, these kinds of domains are very under valued. They are much rarer than 5 or 6 number domains as well as the ever discussed CHIPs. If I calculated correctly there are 160,000 LLLL CHIPS- 20x20x20x20 There are 262,144 Six Number CHIPs 8x8x8x8x8x8 There are 32,768 Five number CHIPS- 8x8x8x8x8 There are only 10,240 LNNN CHIPs 8x8x8x20 There are only 10,240 NNNL CHIPs 8x8x8x20 Please let me know if I am doing this incorrectly but according to my calculations, even when you combine both types of 3 numbers with 1 letter, they are still much rarer than even 5 number CHIPS which start at about $2,000. The types of domains I am discussing can be bought below $100 at this point in time on the drop. A huge percentage of LNNN/NNNL domains are developed in China, so logic tells me at some point, these domains will heat up in the same way CHIPS did. The difference being, there are way more CHIPs available than these diamonds in the rough, so the ceiling is higher, as shown with my latest sale. We will know down the road if this sale is an aberration or a sign of things to come, but I am bullish on these even if the price goes way up. I normally do not discuss any of my sales on blogs, but believe this one may shed some new light on an area of the Chinese market that is rarely discussed, but perhaps should be. A lot of people are bullish on NNLL/LLNN domains as well. I concur, but the NNNL/LNNN are still much rarer than those. If the letters have meaning such as Chinese surnames like Li/Wu/Xu then they may be worth even more than the ones I alluded to above. If not, I believe the rarity of the 3 number, 1 letter domains will have the most potential for future sales.
