Length Of Domain The length also plays a major role in valuation of the domain name. Shorter the better. If the domain is short say 3 or 4 letters then it can fetch high prices. Compared to the other long domains. (Here also there is a catch: fhur.com is short but it cannot get more then hotappz.com) Because the Hotappz one has general keywords and is brandable compared to the domain name fhur.com which is shorter one.
Another point in shorter domain is that there can be only 17576 combinations in 3 letter domains. So they are rare and are like some antique pieces so they are highly priced. For 4 letters there are 456976 combinations out of which all the nice ones have been regged for next 4 or 5 years. And even just combinations of 4 letters without any meaning are selling for $xx prices.
