    I own a 3 character domain, n1w.net, and I have absolutely no idea what to do with it.

    I suppose it could fit with Number 1 Workout, Number 1 Warez, or such. But I need some more ideas!

    Bring them to me :)

    Sorry to be pedantic but that's a 3 char domain and not a letter domain!

    The best use for it would be assigning to a server so it's easy to remember and update name servers :)

    Yeah, I just forgot the word :) Thanks XoC.

    So I should not make a Warez forum or so? :p Is it decent for SEO? It's not a spot on word, but it's an abbrevation to say the least.

    you may sold it while it easy to sold out for domain name that less than 5 characters unless the domain is suite to your website or blog. Its a short form domain name and it wont be value as keyword domain name. Or you may build some backlink on it then just sold it with better prices.

    They were really popular in around 2007 or so when masses started buying them, just like the .co hype it quickly faded. You really get to see the true worth of a 3 'character' domain as alittle bit over exaggerated, but a 3 'letter' domain to be worth a resell price.

    3 character domains (.i.e u9x.com) are really not worth its registration value unless it can be monetized because its using some sort of acronym.

    3 letter domains are worth its weight. ABE.com, etc...
    .coms are seen to be worth multi millions (sex.com) but averages a couple thousand.
    3 number domains are worth a couple hundred to a few thousand.

    .com has obviously more value than .net and .org seems to be lower valued than .net

    A site with some reference to the current price in the market
    Code:
    http://www.3character.com/priceguide.html
    
    I figure other than trying to find a acronym for the domain, it maybe just listed on an domain auction and you may get your money back.

    I think the best idea would be to auction it on eBay. I've sold stuff on ebay I thought was worthless but I was pleasantly surprised a few times when the bids kept going up into double and triple digits in US dollars.

    Just keep in mind your junk may be someone else's treasure.
