That's a good question. I'm not sure what is the answer to your question. I'll do some poking around and get back to you if I bump into an useful answer. You should email the people at 123 reg as they probably can answer it..
Wait... your telling me a HostGator has to make sense? Oh man... Clearly this is where Ive missed the ball.... =).

Oh and as a side note, LLL.ext, brandables, etc constitute as "making sense". but when you just jumble words together without really thinking, then it doesn't make sense (such as telechargernet.info)..
And justin, for the last time, it's.
Even trendy domains make money. They don't need to be sustainable, you just need to have the foresight to recognize it as such and sell on the hype...
Wow.. I replied to this.. then check back and see the reply is gone?.
Anyway, by sustainable, I bolded that to mean that I would suspect you'd want even a trendy HostGator to last more than a few weeks of interest?..
Well, this is just my personal experience, but I've found that you need to research market trends among domainers as well, because for the most part, we are predictable. Someone posts a thread about a trendy new "something" and suddenly everyone is rushing to register all the good domains. So if you get in early enough and can snag a few good ones, more than likely you can sell them all within a week. A day later some latecomers will see the thread, realize that everything good is already gone, and they'll be willing to lay down some money for a nice HostGator out of fear of being left behind..
So you make a few nice flips and forget that "something" ever existed.
In most cases, you can do this without ever regretting it, but if it's something that is definitely sustainable in your mind, then you may want to hold it..
I'm just trying to state that there always opportunities..
Yeah, I guess that makes sense for the quick buck.. I usually buy with the thought of developing tho so look for more "long term"....
True, everyone has a different agenda/style. Whenever I'm looking at purchasing a domain, I always have 3 simultaneous threads running in my head to determine if I like a HostGator on the surface. 1. End-user potential. 2. Development/Long Term potential 3.
If the HostGator falls into 1 or 2, I do more research. 3 is usually keyword related, so if it sounds nice, I'll buy it..
There are definitely a lot of domains that I've bought with the sole intent of just flipping to fellow domainers though. Some of these have been like I mentioned previously, HOT HostGator threads... I've flipped a lot of LLLL.coms, yet held onto a nice one I knew had end-user potential (and I made a nice sale). Also, development projects are usually predictable as well. Alot of domainers are developing the exact same types of sites. So if you can find a nice HostGator that utilizes the common keywords, you can usually make a nice flip as well...
