A list of the top three dot can domain names sold!
Canadian three letter domain name sales history.....absolutely amazing sales numbers!
Top Dot Ca Domain Name Sales
Three letter domain names have become the go to liquid domain asset class in the digital world. Three letter dot com domain assets can command millions of dollars…yes millions of dollars…such as just recently the sale of ICE.com for $3.5M USD! They are all gone, all registered, all taken, all of them are in the hands of end users or investors. The only way for an organization to get their hands on one is on the resale market, and as time goes by it becomes more and more difficult as there is less and less of them available from investors. There where only 17576 three letter domain assets available to begin with.
Premium domain dot ca names have tremendous valuations, and while most premium domain names sales are hidden from public view because of non-disclosure agreements, competitive reasons, and privacy concerns, there have been enough sales in the past that have become part of the public record to give us a glimpse at some absolutely jaw dropping valuations….yes we are talking about dot ca premium domains as well!
Three Letter Dot Ca domain name sales
Three letter domain names as a class of digital assets are supremely scarce, and very sought after. Organizations crave short meaningful domain name assets for their online address, but only a lucky few will ever get one! These are often used as brands completely on their own. Three letter domain names are valuable for many reasons including;
- they are super easy to remember
- very easy to spell (think mobile browsing …. much easier it is to type in three letters verses two or three word addresses)
- they can be brandable completely on their own
- many are stock symbols today or can become stock symbols in the future
- they are very rare and stand out
- short domains can be and often times are acronyms and abbreviations for many company names / products and or service offerings!
In real estate sector we all have heard of “location, location, location“….in the digital asset domain name sector the key is “short, shorter, shortest“!
Super rare…extremely valuable!
How valuable are three letter domain assets?…. ICE.com recently sold for $3.5M USD, MK.com for $700K USD, DAX.com for $500K USD, EEN.com for $300K USD and these are not even close to the all time top sellers by the way….. (These are just a sample of recent sales.)
Rare?…no super rare!
Just how many three letter domain assets are available in any extension? Exactly 26 x 26 x 26 = 17576….that is it! How many projects / opportunities are being launched online today, this year, next year, and over the next five years? Have you ever tried to search for a short domain name asset that may still be available? Go ahead and do some research, and try for yourself, try to find one not used, or not registered…hint…it will take a very longtime if at all you ever find one remaining!
Three letter .ca domain names also have fantastic valuations….FLU.ca sold for $45K USD, GMX.ca sold for $31.2K USD, and AHS.ca sold for $30K USD! (by the way…. .ca domains are also one character shorter than all .coms!)

What is the domain name resale market?
Dot ca premium domain name assets are part of the domain resale market, or what can be called the secondary market for the sale of premium quality domain names (high value premium domains held as investments by organizations or individuals who may choose to sell them to other investors or end users). GoDaddy states that this secondary market has some sought after premium domain names regularly selling in the thousands of dollars. There are many online reporting sales sites that try their best to track these sales (at least the ones that are public knowledge) such as DNJournal.com or Namebio.com etc… There you will find on a daily or weekly basis many sales that sometimes get into the hundreds of thousands of dollars…while that is impressive of course, and often a complete wake up call to many.
