If you're not Chinese, a long numerical domain may seem strange, but the visual symmetry of this number domain (the pattern of "484" and "4884" flanked on either side by Triple "8's.") would be visually appealing to an Eastern culture.

Also embedded in these domains:

848 = Wealthy for eight lifetimes.

In Chinese culture triple 8's are considered to be especially lucky.

As ordinary 9 and 10-number domains, these numbers may mean little to average Occidentals (other than as an easy-to-remember cool pattern); heck, we don't fully understand the premise, either. However...

In the Chinese market, "8" is the luckiest number

Disclosure: In Chinese culture, "4" is generally considered an unlucky number because it sounds like "death."

A Western comparison: the number 13, also a harbinger of death, is considered to be an unlucky number, but, at least once a year, Westerners celebrate unlucky 13 by dressing up as ghosts, skeletons, and other scary creatures, such as Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus.

Also, there are some instances where 4 can be represented as a lucky number.

Indeed, according to the website Travel China Guide, in China’s long history, the number 4 has been widely used and accepted as a number to represent common patterns in nature, architecture, literature, important inventions of ancient and modern China, and more.

Click and scroll to "Wide Use of No. 4" for some positive examples.

The triple lucky "8's" surrounding the common pattern of "484" and embedded 848 may very well counteract the general negativity of this number.

 But we'll have to allow potential buyers to arrive at their own conclusions.

This domain is also a palindrome, which means the numbers are the same when read backwards, thus adding another level of mystique to the numerical pattern.

We cannot even fathom what 8.com, 88.com, 888.com, and 8888.com are worth -- probably much more than the average investor could afford.

Long repeating 8's are prized as well. In fact, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, and even 10+ repeating 8's are commanding excellent prices these days.

Evidently, every possible string of 8's have been registered in .com, all the way up to the longest one.

Finally, repeating 8's with other lucky numerals are becoming rare as hand registrations (fresh from the registrar) and are also highly prized.

Chinese demand for numerals is HUGE and increasing each day.
