The “I’s” Have It

Had some very nice 3L domain sales over the past week (including one yesterday).

Two of these began with the letter “I” – ial.com.au and ici.com.au.

ial.com.au was purchased by Griffith Hack (IP Lawyers) for a client of theirs. Very quick and easy transaction – “go to whoa” in less than two days.

ici.com.au was bought by Insight Clinical Imaging – this one had a longer gestation period as they deliberated over the price. However, once the decision was made, it was also a very smooth transaction. COR is going through today.

As I’ve often written, there is no rhyme or reason as to which combination of letters will be in demand. The amount of times that I’ve received offers on letters that I never thought would be popular has surprised me. I’ve just given up trying to second guess this!

There are some that I do try and avoid though. Not a fan of “Z” unless it passes the radio test e.g. zig.com.au. Also “X” can be a difficult one, but as we all know, many people use this as a shortener for “exchange”. Or it can be used in a brandable – like dex.com.au which I sold to an Anaesthetist earlier this year.

To check out a further list of 3L sales, have a read of the article I wrote back in October – “Best Selling Domains By Far”.

      Thanks for the kind words Joel K – I’m glad you didn’t call me a queen. 😉

      It’s just a niche I got in to, and then I worked on it over many years. It’s paid off in spades.

    So Ned. You like short domains. Just not too short a domain. And I didn’t see you mention anything about the branding expert’s comments at the AGM on why brands would much rather have registrations at the second level rather than the third. I guess it could have been buried somewhere… but I doubt it… correct me if I’m wrong.
