3L Domains – Exceptional Value for Money!

For anyone who can make use of one, 3 letter domain names are brilliant tool to boost your online presence and effectiveness. They’re short and easy to remember – and the good ones are becoming increasingly rare.

They also lend a significant degree of legitimacy to your brand – there can only be one .com.au extension for each given combination of letters, so securing that unique name for your business would naturally seem like a good idea, right? It’s a one-off investment that can be easily resold at any point, thanks to their rarity. And they’re never going to be cheaper than they are today – their value is only going to go up!

This makes 3L domains excellent sellers – we are constantly getting enquiries on ours, and they make up easily the largest portion of our sales, both quantity and value-wise.

What Are They Worth?

In comparison to their .com counterparts, Australian 3L domains are relatively cheap!

3L .com domain names often sell in the 6 figures range, however, .com.au 3Ls typically demand only a small fraction of this sort of pricing.

For a good 3L domain name, be prepared to invest anywhere from $2500 to $15,000 – some have sold for less; some have sold for more.

Some Recent Sales

Peter’s of Kensington are a great example of an established business who opted for a 3L domain – we recently sold them the domain POK.com.au, which they have now set up to redirect to their original site (PetersOfKensington.com.au).

The significantly shorter domain name is more memorable and easy for anyone to spell, and allows them the exclusivity of those letters – giving them an advantage over any other business that may use the same letters.

This really goes to show that a 3L domain can be an invaluable tool in the right hands, and a relatively inexpensive one-off investment, given the potential returns to be made as a result.

    as we say in our house ” good point, well presented”, nicely written article luke.

    it just makes sense doesn’t it? some just don’t work like “xvj” or maybe it could? and then theres the GOLD like “yes” , “can” “eat” etc once you get into a word.

    ones starting with “t , v, q ” tassie,vic, qld give you a head start i’d suspect.

    which leads me to think about 4 letters in the context of south australia etc “SA**” .
