3 Letter .US Names Fetch Thousands?
According to the lead in to a paid subscription article in Boston Business Journal, a Massachusetts domain investor sold 800 three letter .us domain names to NameMedia for an undisclosed sum. The article states that “web experts” value some three letter .us names at between $1,000 to $2,000 per name. The article speculates that “his take from the deal was likely in the range of $500,000 to $1.5 million.”
I am not disputing this because his names may have been exceptional, but it’s interesting to note because according to a three letter .us price guide I found (3Character.com), they say the average value of a three letter .us name is just $45. According to that site, .com names are the only three letter domain extension worth more than $1,000 each on average.
It would be interesting to see which names were sold to NameMedia and if this will have any impact on the value of three letter .us names, of which I do not own any, nor plan to buy any time soon.
