At least two .com license plates exist in Austin.
I recently got a DNW.COM license plate thanks to Texas now allowing dots on license plates.
This past weekend I was leaving a parking lot when I spied this:
Yep, that’s a four character .com license plate.
In a way, a four character .com is rarer than a three character — when it comes to license plates in The Lone Star State.
DNW.COM is technically a six character license plate because the dot isn’t counted. UXRX.COM is seven, and the state only opens up seven character plates for short windows of time.
Interestingly, UXRX.com isn’t launched yet. I guess forking out hundreds of dollars for a license plate is one way to make sure you follow through with starting your business.
A word to the wise before you go get a personalized “domain plate”: it’s like putting your phone number in big font on the back of your car. I’m not advising against it…just think about it before you do it.
