Shortest domains & my 1 letter domain ( a.st )
Short domains are being used these days more then ever, especially now that .com is overloaded and practically you can’t find a good one that is not yet registered.
People started to use their creativity on this section as well and came up with the idea of combining with domain extensions as for example the “.ly” that is used heavily or “.co
” and “.me
While researching i was going to buy the one that i find free. So i used a tool http://domai.nr
which helped a lot where you type for e.g your name and see if you can still register so i did and got a very surprising list as follows:
astrit.com / Registered by some one.
astrit.co / I got it.
astr.it / Registered by some one.
a.st / Got it as well.
So now i will be using one of the shortest domains in the world as my personal domain for email, website etc.
Why i took a.st ?
The reason for this was that i wanted to make a synonym of my name with domain for example i can use it like this “a.st
” or “a.st/rit
” = Astrit
But is there any thing shorter than this 3 letter domain.
Surprise surprise !! there it is for e.g “ws/” was used for a while but now is not online and the only domain that still is online at least it works on google chrome is The Official Vatican website and that domain is “va/
” or “www.va
” i was surprised to see something like this.
But what surprised me was that after I knew that VA/ came from the domain extension i started to visit other extensions but couldn’t find any. Until.
I was familiar with the fact that google is registering it’s own domain extension “.google
Surprisingly when i tried http://google/ it redirected to https://google/ meaning that a SSL certification is registered to the domain but still not online and most important thing that google probably one day will make it public and you can access just by typing google no domain extension.
It is very interesting where the domain thing is going, can’t wait to see what will happen on the future, probably when we think for google it will open a new tab on think.google
