    What do the metrics of the domain look like? Are you purchasing the domain because of the amount of characters specifically?

    The domain has no metrics, PR 0 - DA/PA 0 - TF 0.

    Imho, there's no SEO value from the domain itself. So the questions that remains, is the name worth that money to you?

    I assume you won the name in an auction. I would suggest you buy it. Why? Because you knew what the name was when you bid on it and I think you should be good to your word and follow through on your bid. I don't know about any of you but it's really frustrating to put something up for auction, have someone win the auction, and then pull out after they win it.

    If you dont have a plan on how to use it, then it probably isnt worth it. A domain is worth whatever plan you have for it even without metrics

    Well it sucks but it also sucks to lose money and the domain ain't exactly a winner so the seller shouldn't have been expecting much anyway.

    Also, fuck those who sit on domains for years and do fuck all with them. Just a waste of space.

    i wont buy it. there was constantly a counterbid until it got to a certain ammount. i guess the seller had two accounts. so now that i have learned from bhw, i wont buy it. i am sorry but on the internet, everybody is on their own.

    Hello OP,

    I agree with Keedags26 that you bid on the domain and you should now buy it, even though I assume it is probably a closeout domain rather than a an individual who has put it up for auction.

    More importantly, you need to have a clear idea of what you are doing. From this post it seems you have no plan in terms of your goals. If you had a plan for this domain it would have a value to you and you would not be asking this question.

    I suggest that before you buy anything else you sit down and work out what you are trying to achieve online and devise a plan from there. If you do not know where you are going you will end up nowhere having spent a lot on the journey.

    The way Godaddy is setup you cannot tell if you are bidding against a shill. You are not going to follow through with your bid, which is your choice but your justification is just to ease your conscience.

    On the internet "everybody is on their own" but in life all you have is your word, without that you are nothing.

    At first I was going to say you'd be an idiot not to buy LNL.com for 200, but I realized you meant L#L.

    Worthless.

    3 letter domains are well worth it. They are rare. I would get it :)

    It's your choice.

    You may be getting it because you want to stay unique or branded which is okay.
    Don't worry about the SEO value, you can make that up from your off site job.

    Some domain names have been sold for thousands of dollars, do you really think the people who bought don't know what they are doing?
