Buying a Great Domain Name is all about Timing

  • “Every morning in Africa, a Gazelle wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the fastest lion or it will be killed. Every morning a Lion wakes up. It knows it must outrun the slowest Gazelle or it will starve to death. It doesn’t matter whether you are a lion or a Gazelle… when the sun comes up, you’d better be running”
  • “Take a chance! All life is a chance. The man who goes furthest is generally the one who is willing to do and dare. The “sure thing” boat never gets far from shore.”- Dale Carnegie

  • “Twenty years from now you will be disappointed by things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sail. Explore. Dream. Discover.”- Mark Twain
  • “If and when the unavailable, extremely rare, powerful generic domain names become available and the unattainable domain assets become attainable, you must strike like an Eagle… rarity brings value.”- Inside Domaining

UK Domainer’s Commentary on AZ.com $500K Domain Trade

URL Academy » Blog Archive » AZ.COM sells for $500k
UK domainer- Andy Kelly’s take on two-letter (LL.com) domain names:

“I think all LL.com’s are in a class of their own. I would classify them all as premium, regardless of letter combo, but AZ.com is near the top of the top class in my opinion!
AA.com, BB.com, etc. are even better but AZ.com is a class act. For the a to z of everything, from Insurance to Banking, etc. AZ is also the recognized state abbreviation for Arizona, USA.
There are only 626 possible combinations for LL.com and I think $500k is a bargain! The sky is the limit for future values of such domains. Interestingly, although ll.coms attract great interest ln.com and nl.com are lucky to fetch premium lll.com prices right now.” –URLAcademy.com
