    Hi,

    Just wondering if domains such as the following were any good:

    G4mbling.com
    H1m.co.uk
    H3r.co.uk

    What's your view on these? Are they worth anything, or just the reg fee?

    Thanks, Will

    Car license plates, yes

    Domains never a good one IMO unless sometimes it is 2 or 4, as in love2 or fish4 etc

    All the best

    Sometimes the '0' can act as the letter 'o'.
    Also, you can do domain hacks like MOBlLES.com -letter I is actually a lower-case L (Which I own), good for Google Adwords domains!

    I have to agree with GreyWing here, unless the number replaces a word or is used as general 'text speak' for instance gr8mobilephones.com or similar then I don't see a lot of value.

    Of course domains like h1m.co.uk or h3r.co.uk will have value as a 3char domains but as words I'm not convinced.
