The numeric domain name market is running wild thanks to the very active Chinese market! Five and six number .com domain names are seeing prices climbing at a rapid rate. Four number .com domain names are easily starting to reach five figures (yes some are still selling at four figures depending on number quality) but four number domain prices are rapidly rising. 3 number .com domains are rising and are selling in the six figure range on average!
Here are some recent reported sold four number .com domain sales in the month of May with a clear trend of prices increasing during the month:
Other than “zip codes”, for the most part that was what 5 number domains mainly focused on but here is a quick look at some NNNNN .com expired domain auctions currently taking place at GoDaddy with time still left in all auctions:
|Domain Name||Bids||Bid Price||Auction End|
|63||$15,000 *||7H 20M|
|28||$305 *||5H 37M|
|24||$710 *||1D 6H|
|19||$760 *||5H 2M|
|19||$760 *||5H 24M|
|15||$630 *||7H 34M|
|11||$105 *||7D 5H|
|8||$57 *||6D 8H|
|6||$760 *||8H 5M|
|6||$49 *||7D 6H|
And those auctions haven’t even closed yet! On average, I would say most NNNNN .com domain sales have been in the low 3 figure range with a few select domains reaching four figures.
5 number domains are not the only ones with rising prices, even six number .com domain names are seeing prices in the near mid three figure range in recent expired domain name auctions at Dropcatch.com & NameJet and below is just from one day:

The six number domains are starting to take off now, but the majority of NNNNNN .com domains are available but being registered pretty quickly. This is something that is pretty interesting, mainly considering the 5 number domain sales are mainly in the low 3 figure range. Yes, number quality plays a factor but it is interesting to start seeing six number domains pricing near what 5 number .com domains are.
If you are considering investing in numeric .com domain names, here are some helpful tips to what the numbers value in the Chinese market:
What Are Good Numbers?
- 8 is the best number
- 4 is a bad one, 5 is bad but good at times
- 7 is even
- 9 is fine and zero is fine too
- 6 is good for business
- Domains starting with 0 are less valuable than domains ending with 0
- The more the number has 8 in it, the more valuable it is
- Repeating numbers increase the value
