Short domain names to be released today.
Top level domain name company Rightside is releasing 20,000 two character domain names across its TLDs today at noon EDT.
The two character domains to be released include at least one number in them, taking the form of NL.tld, LN.tld or NN.tld.
That obviously limits the appeal compared to two letter domains, but two letter domains are still in limbo at ICANN.
I would think the better domains are ones typically used as brands (e.g. A1) and ones with specific meaning to a particular industry. I could also understand NN.futbol domains having appeal if they match a uniform number.
The domain names are priced from $200 to $50,000. Rightside is particularly good at finding and pricing the best domains, so I wouldn’t count on many spectacular bargains from an investment standpoint.
As a point of reference, you can pick up a number of single letter domain names in Donuts’ domains for an annual fee of about $1,000.
