Analysis of Available Western 5 Letter Domains CVCVC.com and Others

intelI did quite a bit of research over the past days to register some quality 5 Letter domains, LLLLL.com, below are some results. First of all this is geared towards western, English speaking world, and potential end users, and it’s mostly unrelated to the recent surge in Chinese domains. Most of the below analysis is based on letter frequencies in the English language and also the letter frequencies presented in high value sales of LLLLL.com domains.

What makes these domains interesting? They arepronounceable, easy to remember and make good brands. And brands is what end users want, and the main reason for high value domain sales. Here are some easily recognizable global brands that use 5 letter domains:  Shell, Intel, Chase, Cisco, Honda, Pepsi, Total, FedEx, Baidu, Tesco, Bosch, Gucci, Canon, Delta, Rolex, Nivea, Claro, TELUS, Bayer, Prada, Mobil, Geico, Tyson, Lexus, Adobe, Yahoo, Volvo, Kraft, Exxon  and many more!

The current Chinese trends of registering chips may pass and go, but there will always be the new Pepsi or Honda and Intel, and that’s why I believe brandable 5 letter domains are worth registering and holding on to.

The 8 most popular English letters: E, T, N, O, R, I, A, & S

As there are a total of 11,881,376 LLLLL.com domains and 288000 cvcvc.com domains, it’s good to start by limiting our space for easier analysis. Going with the most popular letters statistically seems like the most reasonable choice, as they are far more likely to form better sounding and more memorable brands. So we’ll mostly focus on the 8 most commonly used letters in the English alphabet, which collectively appear more than 60% of the time in words. The list includes 4 vowels: EOIA and 4 consonants TNRS – in the order of popularity.

Summary

This post only covers partial research on the more popular combinations, a lot more are to be processed. So far it’s clear that the popular and easily pronounceable type of 5 letter domains are mostly registered and even trading at respectable amounts on auctions, however quite a few still remain available for registration. I’ve personally registered many of these in past days, while checking the lists, and plan to hold them for long time. Even if there is no significant reseller value, as I believe they are highly undervalued. For reference just check the list of popular brands at the beginning of the post and latest sales for CaCaC.com or top VCVCV.com type names.

In conclusion: plenty of nice domains are still available for registration, while most domainers are focused on XXQWZ.com, WXZZW.com type names. Even more suprising many are of these are actually all bought out, like qqxzm.com – with first two repeating letters and all chinese consonants. Plenty of trading is going on in chinese markets and on the forums with prices mostly ranging $5-20. However this is all just reseller speculation, hoping for further growth of prices and a potential buyout. Unfortunately  that’s not going to happen soon as around 30% of 5L.com chips are still available, and that’s about a million domains.

Tip of the day is: don’t follow the crowd, do your own research!

Tools used in the writing of this post, compiling and checking lists:

  • watchmy.domains – the free version allows for convinient unlimited bulk domain checks
  • name.com bulk domain registration – the best online research for checking bulk lists, it can handle quickly around 2K domains
  • Notepad++ – free text editor software with many advance lines operation tools
  • Microsoft Excel, obviously..
  • Custom php scripts to generate lists, Google, SemRush for checking some individual domains
  • Godaddy – for cheapest domain registrations at $8.37
  • namebio.com for sales compilations

  1. Great Post! Could you please let me know what website or program you used to filter these results? I am a new domainer and would greatly appreciate any advice!

  2. Interesting read. I had similar thoughts and registered quite a number of some pronounceable 5L names but with the ever changing dynamics of domains, it does seem to all come down to speculation. When this industry first spiked my interest, my understanding was that traffic is and always will be the beginning and end of it all however there is other factors that have debunked that theory especially when it comes to brandables that normally don’t have any organic search. It appears to me that research is still the number one strategy of winning in this industry and you have to have an idea of what kind of a business can buy into the name you are investing in otherwise if you don’t really know, you just like a gambling addict who’s more dependent on luck than anything else.
