Are L-L.ca domains a good investment for the future?
L-L means letter hyphen letter, for example, d-k.ca or g-w.ca
If you are just getting into buying .ca domains, or already own some, you are probably wondering what kind of names have value now or will in the future. I think it's worth owning some L-L.ca for various reasons:
They are short, three character, two letter domains.
They can be used as initials for someone's name, or for a company.
There are only 676 possible combinations. Rarity alone isn't necessarily a good thing, because there is only one of every domain, but combined with the shortness of L-L domains it's a good thing.
LL.ca have sold recently into the $5,000 to 15,000 range. There is only a one hyphen difference between these two types of names.
All LL.ca are owned by someone, and many are unavailable to purchase at any price. L-L.ca domains are a good alternative.
The L-L combinations have been registered in all the top domain extensions, like .com, .net, .org, .biz, .mobi. Yet, you can still find some available in .ca. In Canada, .com and .ca are the two best extensions to have.
LL.ca and even LLL.ca domains have all been registered. Out of 676 possible combinations, only 218 L-L.ca domains are unregistered. I own some myself, and if I didn't I would buy at least a few for investment.
One example of a L-L.ca being used for a website is www.M-X.ca which is the Montreal Stock Exchange. I even found an active L-L-L.ca website, which was G-P-S.ca
