BIG Profits in Short Domain Names
A domain name is not just something that you type in on a computer keyboard - it is your brand, written on your letterheads, business cards, advertisements, maybe also on your company vehicles, carrier bags, promotional give-aways etc.
Short Term Memory
It seems that increasingly firms are using short acronyms for their web identities - even Facebook has recently acquired FB.com. In fact, it is now revealed that Facebook paid a cool $8.5 million dollars to acquire the domain FB.com - which by comparison makes the prices of 4-letter domains small change!
The main reasons that 4 letter domain names are so desirable is that they appear more prestigious, are easy to remember, are great for branding,are less prone to spelling errors as is the case with much longer domains (especially true if the full company name is complicated to spell) and requiring less keystrokes (important on mobile handheld devices with small buttons) and of course great for offline marketing.

There are probably many other companies that desire the same domain name that you are thinking about. Once it has gone, you may not get a second chance! And you are left with your second-rate domain name.
Many times 4 letter domain names are broken down by type, which can include:
- Quad Premium (all 4 letter are considered premium) Premium Letters are considered as:
- CVCV (consonant, vowel, consonant, vowel)

CVCV, VCVC and pronounceable 4 letter COM’s are fair to wise domain investments. The better quality letters in a CVCV will raise the value with repeating premium letters being highest.

If you are new to buying four letter domains here are some tips:
- Use an online dictionary of acronyms and abbreviations such as Acronym Finder or TheFreeDictionary to gauge popularity and potential demand.
- Look for letter combinations with vowels that are words or names. Even if the combination is not a real word, those that can be pronounced like a word are likely to have solid value. Examples: “LEEA” and “BOAM”
- Look for domains that end in letters commonly used in acronyms and abbreviations such as “A” for association, “G” for group, “O” for organization and “C” for club.
- Use a letter frequency chart to learn which letters are most and least commonly used.
