Four Letter Words

In a world where short domain names are king, because people otherwise might forget them, we are happy to offer a few four letter words of our own. While it amazes me with what strange domain names people sometimes come up with just to create a short name, I realize that I am equally guilty, for good reason though, of registering short domains that have not been discovered yet.

Who is to say that a four letter word, not easy to find in the domain marketplace, could not be an abbreviations for a four word company name, a four word sport or social event, somebody’s name, an industrial code, some civic association, club or new product. While I do not want to start giving suggestions for the use of our short domains,  I am confident that one or more of our domains, even those containing numbers, are exactly right for some specific web site.

There are most likely many entrepreneurs out there who might love a particular four letter domain word to be incorporated into their logos, letterheads and to be used for advertising. But often either the name is unavailable or owned by a squatter/domainer who parks the domain for income and will not let it go unless a high enough offer is made.

At domain-inventory we are not so clamped up, our domains start at minimum cost without a reserve price. We like you to own the domain you want and let the market place, through the bidding process at any accredited domain broker house, decide its final value.

On the other side of the short domain name spectrum are  new, inexperienced  start-ups, who must have a domain name, no matter what. They don't spend money on the right, short domain and thus constrict long, strange, search engine unfriendly, hyper-hyphenated domains, that makes you think, 'what were they thinking'. To top it, the newly created 'company' domain name than gets plastered to the back end of a vehicle, thus creating IT-cowboy-mass-media-bumper-sticker-shock. All intentionally, of course.

In order to retain our readers base, who, I hope, are a nice bunch of sane, cool headed entrepreneurs, trend setters, future leaders and job creators who would never dream up such redundant escapades, we offer just a few, clean, four letter words that will make sense and use to some, so we hope, and now are available for purchase to anyone looking for short premium TLDs or ccTLDs.

When a brief domain name fits the purpose, a four letter word is a beautiful thing.

Domains for Hawaii

This time we go local. I am offering quality, premium top level made-for-Hawaii domain names for sale. To see the domains right away you can skip to the bottom of this blog or first read my short lived, true story about my experience in Hawaii.

Hawaii is definitely a very special state, I know, I lived there. Having traveled to most states of the beautifully United States, Hawaii was the state I picked when I wanted to move somewhere else. Why? At the time I had been living in Florida for 5 years and wanted to make a change. The perfect state had to have clean air, fresh water and lots of sunshine. And an ocean nearby. Besides Arizona, New Mexico and Utah which I all love, but have no ocean, there was only one place to move to.

I wanted to be prepared while still living in Miami, so before actually flying out there, I subscribed to a Honolulu Newspaper, the Honolulu Advertiser, as well as surfing magazine, opened a Hawaiian bank account by mail, and few month later I sold everything I owned and flew out there, across the country, via San Francisco across the Pacific to Honolulu. Ahead of my arrival I had reserved a hotel room on Waikiki Beach but lived at the hotel for only seven days. This is how long it took me to find a more permanent place. So after seven days I moved into a studio apartment, (with two balconies), two street blocks away from famous Waikiki Beach. It took only another week to find a job as a restaurant manager at 'Spats' and I was all set.

During my stay I discovered the entertaining, open air Ala Moana shopping center with its fabulous mix of different people, colors, shops and cultures from around the world and delicious, great smelling food everywhere. I took (humiliating) surfing lessons right on Waikiki Beach (good idea, bad location), and experienced a Tsunami warning which moved us all to the top of Diamond Head. I started a Hawaiian shirt collection, visited local surfing spots on Hawaii’s north shore, took wild rides in 'toilet bowls' - vertical tunnels carved out by the sea, where you jump in and ride up and down and felt like I had found a piece of real paradise while standing under a tall waterfall, looking up, to see pearls of water cascading down on me.

It was all over after 4 month, when I moved back to the mainland as locals call the continental United States. It was a beautiful experience that I can wholeheartedly recommend to anyone, just don’t think about leaving. I thought I'd never leave because it is it really is one of the most magic spots on the planet. Since the 50th state in the Union is also amongst the 50 most beautiful in the US, I am sure you will appreciate the top level domain names, I hope will soon grace a web site from the Aloha state or some other 'paradise' related web site:

Domain Name Value.

Owning only a few hundred domains I have not found the time yet to attach a value to every single domain name. At first I am always thrilled, when an offer arrives. But at times, when taking a closer look, I realize this low offer is really nothing else but a cheap shot at a top level domain. Maybe some domain owners are to blame, offering their names at every turn for next to nothing, and so creating the impression that there is a domain name flea market out there. My usual response is to make a counter offer that brings negotiation to a screeching halt before they even have a change to begin.

There is a difference between placing a first low bid at an auction and a (to low) offer to buy a domain right away. Many domains have been sold for large amounts of money, when the first bid met the minimum requirement, often below U.S. Dollar 100. When a domain is offered at no reserve, minimum bid, the seller runs the risk of getting stuck with the first and only bid, and thus having to sell the domain below market value. But such is life. On the other hand the domain might fetch the amount that both, seller and buyer can be happy with.

However, when making a direct offer for a domain on a buy outright basis, without going through any bidding process, I think the offer should be made carefully and be somewhat realistic. There is a minimum value that comes with any good, quality, premium, usable domain name. Domain names are bought and sold on a daily basis. The ones that make the headlines are those that set new records with prices that zoom into the stratosphere. That does not mean less desired domains are worthless and would be sold at the first minimum offer. Check domain name news and statistics to see that the private and auction domain name market is well and alive.  Buyers and sellers come together daily and hundreds of domains get transferred and do change hands at fair market value. 

Key word domains, domains with hyphens and/or numbers, country code or non English name domains, and domains with all different extensions, other than dot com, continue to rake in high prices. And when that happens everyone seems to be surprised, simply because it seems to be outside limited and self set norms of thinking, that anything other than a one word English language dot com domain name, is basically worthless. That is, in my opinion, pretty narrow-minded and very ignorant thinking. To make a too low offer, saying 'here you go, yes, I want your domain and but this is all what I am willing to pay for it' will most likely not producing a very enthusiastic response from the seller owner.

Any entrepreneur with a business/commerce web site knows what key word(s) to look for when shopping for a domain name. They know exactly the name and the nature of their business and what specific URL should crown their web site, even before they put the first cent into it. A person like this would not waste any time by making useless offers.

Any outright buy offer should take the ‘want’ fact into consideration and value the domain name for its uniqueness. The past and current, private and public domain name transactions, and prices, have shown there are no alternatives for top level domain names. To acquire a particular domain, make an offer that makes sense and is just and fair. It will make you feel good too, because, once you own 'that' domain you know, you have found and acquired the right domain name. And that's priceless.
