A look back at how niches performed and where do they stand now

One of my friends, Viral Kachariya, has asked me this question in Whatsapp, “Which niche is the most discounted right now?”

I didn’t have a ready answer, so I decided to investigate. This is what I found!

We can see that 3L.CC chips are 70.63% discounted now followed by 6N.com chips and 4L.CC chips.

3L.NET chips and 4L.COM randoms are at the lower end.

You can sort the table percentage wise and see.

Also we notice that these niches start to go down in the week of Chinese New Year. It is a two-week long holiday period for most of the Chinese and most businesses are shut.








This time Chinese New Year is earlier.







Normally it is said that after the Chinese New Year investments spike. Last year we didn’t see this spike though. Niches started recovering a little bit only after June.

But there is a major difference between last year and this year. Niches were already very high and they went on a downward spiral around Chinese New Year last time. This time they are around 50% discounted. We saw bulk buying of 4L.CN chips on 30th and 31st.

What do you think? Which way would these niches go post Chinese New Year?

  • If you purchased at the top of the market then you are bleeding. If you didn’t then you are still probably up. Even with a 70% decrease in the 3l.cc’s they are over 800usd! Many of those were picked up for a hundred bucks or less. The market will rebound for sure. Short and sweet is the future and with more and more people accessing the net short easy to remember domains will continue to hold value.
