The market for three-letter .COM's is well established with even the worst letter combinations routinely selling for five-figure fees. In the past twelve months, a couple of three-letter .COM domain names have even sold for seven-figure fees. Today, we are able to reveal that another three-letter .COM has sold for a seven-figure fee.

The domain in question is Yes.com, a name that is being sold by Swiss company Yes International AG. Yes was founded in 1999 with the goal of creating a global brand and clearing system for interactive radio and TV. Based on previous screenshots of Yes.com, this project was closed in 2013.

The domain sale was independently confirmed earlier today.

We believe that the sales price was around 4.5 million Euros, which equates to around $5.54 million at the time of writing. This would make Yes.com the second-largest three-letter .COM sale ever, only beaten by the $14 million sale of Sex.com. It would also make this the largest sale of 2018, surpassing the recently confirmed $1.2 million sale of Super.com.

As you might expect for such a common English word, there are plenty of companies called "Yes." These include an Israeli TV company and an Indian bank, both of which have several thousand employees. The term "Yes" also has over five hundred exact, live trademarks.

The domain's WHOIS details are yet to transfer over to reflect its new owners, which means that we currently have very few clues as to the identity of the new owner.

Three-lettered domains are a lot like Bitcoins from the early days of mining, and the original marketers behind the fidget spinner - you bite the bullet early and play the stakes, and you're on a roll for life.

Love your signature btw. :D

One can use this domain for motivation niche but the buyer may have purchased to sell later for profit.

Sounds likely.

What the actual fuck....I don't get it....why someone pay this amount of money for a domain name...the value is in the brand not in a domain name.....and if u say u can turn the domain name into a brand I say u can build a solid brand without a 5.4 mil$ domain name.

That's madness but I'm not surprised.. the longer I'm in this game the bigger a picture I get of how much money there really is out there in the big leagues, recently I've been working with a guy that's paid around half a million for the domains of a failed dotcom era company he's working on reviving, I thought that was insane.. nothing compared to this yes.com

There are some seriously big players out there that are not spoken about on forums or Facebook groups.

You can’t even buy 1688.com for 100 millions USD

Well that's a pretty cool domain. Easy to remember, short and so on, I'm sure the buyer has good plans for it ;)
