With yesterday’s announcement that the .CO registry had put up for sale some 1,100 2 character domain names, including 2 letter .co and 2 number .co domains, I got a few email’s from domain investors asking me what I thought they were worth.
I think we can all agree with it comes to a two letter .com they are worth at least $100K and as we know can sell for as much as FB.com which sold for a reported $8.5 Million, so what is a two letter .co worth?
There are some really interesting two letter and two number domain names for sale on Godaddy’s Aftermarket.
For now I don’t want to chat about the two character .Co domains that mix letters and numbers, domains like 7Z.co or c6.co for example.
Lets instead look like a name like FB.co.
So As I said, we know that FB.com was purchased by Facebook for $8.5 Million.
FB.co is priced at a very reasonable $35,000.
At $35,000 FB.co is priced at less than 1/2 of 1% of the price of the .com
ig.com was reportedly sold for what was said to be the second highest amount ever paid for a two letter .com just a week ago.
ig.co is for sale for $50,000
88.co is priced at $100,000 and for those that don’t know, the Asian market has been huge buyers of numeric .com domain names and when it comes to numbers, the king is the number 8 which denotes good luck or good fortune and double 8 means double good fortune.
69.co is also at Godaddy.com for $100,000, which in the US culture also denotes good fortune.
The last 2 digit .com that sold whose price was released was 60.com which was on the Dnjournal.com list of the top sales of 2012 at $310,000
60.Co is listed on Godaddy.com for $75,000 which is 1/4 of the price of what the .com sold for, arguably nowhere near the .com to .co value that FB.com has to FB.co
VI.com also sold in 2012 publicly for $325,000 and is on sale at Godaddy for $50K.
Also selling in 2012 was BJ.com for $325,000 and BJ.co is priced at $75,000
RH.com also sold in 2012 for 304,000 and the RH.Co is priced at $75,000
Md.org just sold for $555,000 on Namejet and Md.co is priced at $100,000.
And although I said I wasn’t going to chat about two character domains that were a mixture of letters and numbers I know you would be all disappointed if I didn’t mention that 3D.co is for sale at Godaddy.com for $75,000.
So what do you guys think a two letter and two number .Co are worth?
