Did you see Fab.net sell for $39,000 last week? dnjournal.com/domainsales.htm Clearly a good 3-letter .NET domain can be worth a lot. Past sales include: Sex.net $454,500 DIY.net $200,000 NET.net $100,000 Hot.net $74,850 But the word has to be a good one. Well, MAL.net is one the best -- or I should say, "baddest". "Mal" means "bad", "wrong", "evil" in at least 5 languages: Spanish, French, Italian, Portuguese, Latin For instance, Baudelaire wrote a famous collection of poems called "Les Fleurs du Mal" ("The Flowers of Evil"). "Bad" is probably one of the 2 or 3 most fundamental words that exists. I expect one of the earliest things language was used for was to express "bad" -- to warn people away from saber tooth tigers, dangerous terrain, and tempting plants that happened to be poison. In English, "MAL" means the same thing -- think of "Malpractice", "Malware", "Malevolent". Mal.net is especially appropriate for the malware niche, due to its .NET extension. The cost per click (CPC) for phrases containing "malpractice" in Google AdWords currently ranges from $10 to over $108 -- for a single click! Equally important, "Mal" is a very important Arabic word (مال) meaning "capital", "property", "wealth", etc. MAL.net has received many offers, but it's significant that my highest offer so far (high $x,xxx) was from someone in Saudi Arabia. I declined the offer because I think this domain should retail in the 5-figures minimum. As if those factors weren't good enough, "MAL" also contains the abbreviations for two different states -- Alabama (AL) and Massachusetts (MA) -- making it a likely acronym. Offers are welcome on this domain.
