    Sell it, if you don't have anything to use it for. What's the domain?

    Happy New Years BHW!

    I have acquired a nifty 3 character domain name (two letters one number .com) and was wondering what ideas you guys would do with such a short name?

    I'm looking to use this as a new source of income for the new year (hopefully).

    Thanks!

    Nothing, these domains got no value, they're not even easy to remember if the letter don't represent anything.

    And you base that on what?

    You can do many things with a 3 letter domain, first thing that comes to mind is a URL shorter, maybe with a tracking CMS so people can track the clicks.
    You can also do a social bookmarking website, they tend to get plenty of traffic.
    Lastly you can make something similar to ****** :)

    Happy New Year!

    Well yeah, for URL shortening but I don't see a real value in it, I had one and I sold it a while ago.

    create a brand, easy to remember domains are good. Even better if they also have age

    It should have decent resale value (depending on the alphabets ad # in your name). If you don't have any ideas for it, list it on Sedo (free account). It might sell itself and make you some dough without any work.
