What is the cheapest 2 letter domain

This is how domain prices come about

Why are some domains sought-after and expensive, while others are slow-moving? From the top level domain to current market trends, many factors play a role.

Factor 1: The right top level domain

There are currently more than 1,500 different domain endings (Top Level Domains, or TLDs for short). According to Statista.de, the most registered ending is by far “.com”, followed by “.cn” for China. The ending ".de" is in third place in the TLD ranking list. Because attractive Internet addresses with the endings “.com” and “.de” are hardly available anymore, they are traded dearly.

The popular and high-priced TLDs also include ".net", ".org" and ".info".

These domains are already included in many STRATO packages.

Among the top level domains (nTLDs) that have been gradually introduced since March 2013, “.top” and “.xyz” are the most popular and rather cost-intensive. In many cases there are cheaper alternatives.

STRATO offers a wide range of TLDs at affordable prices.

Factor 2: The brevity of the domain name

Short terms are often more memorable than long ones. However, it should be meaningful, understandable terms or abbreviations that are known in the national language. Arbitrary strings of letters and numbers are not effective, even if they are short.

Undoubtedly, short, understandable domains are in short supply and are therefore traded at high prices, while longer terms are more available and affordable. Four-, three- or even two-digit domains achieve top prices in retail, especially when they end in “.com”, “.net” or “.de”.

Factor 3: One word is better than several

Domains like “Blumen.de” or “Firstname.com” are unmistakable. In the case of attractive “one-word domains”, the website can achieve a high level of awareness just because of the domain name. Such domains are correspondingly expensive when they are for sale, and it is hardly possible to find attractive “one-word domains” that are not yet registered.

Tip: If you create a domain name from several words, you should always connect the words with hyphens. This makes it easier for search engines like Google to find your website. Example: "fraenkische-trachten.shop" is better than "fraenkischetrachten.shop".

Factor 4: A keyword in the domain name

In addition to the content of a website, search engines like Google also evaluate the domain name to a certain extent. Domains that contain frequent search terms can achieve a better search engine ranking as long as the website offers appropriate content. This is why so-called “KeywordDomains” are traded dearly.

In the experiment, a Google search for “flowers” ​​delivered the online shop “flower2000.de” as the first hit - we would have expected the Wikipedia entry about flowers.

Factor 5: The uniqueness of the terms

Not only search engines see a connection between the content of a website and the domain name. First of all, it's the users who pay attention. Addresses that use unique terms are traded more expensive than those that consist of seemingly arbitrary terms. Examples: “Hundeschule-Berlin” is more valuable than “Mach-Sitz”, “Fleischerei-Meier” more clearly than “Der-Fleischladen”.

Factor 6: Being up-to-date has its price

Current trends are a decisive price factor in domain trading: Social, technical and economic developments determine whether an Internet address is more or less valuable - and that can change pretty quickly. Accordingly, domain trading is a speculative business: Those who are skilled buy and sell at the right time and thus achieve high profits.

Conclusion: the price is not everything

The price can be an indication of whether a domain is valuable or not - but it is not the only criterion for its usefulness. Acquiring new cheap domains can also lead a website to success. Ultimately, the prospects determine whether an expensive domain is worth the money or not.
