ChristmasSpecial.net – What about a two-word holiday savings domain name? It seems to be targeted enough to have some demand, but does the .net hurt it?

Fitwh.com – It’s five letters, but isn’t pronounceable. Does that mean there is no value or is it worth something because it’s only five letters?
