U R Your URL

Other than Q, X, and Z, the remaining 23 single-letters in the alphabet may be available for sale, according to a recent article. Qwest had the foresight to lock up, Ebay with, and Nissan with for it's Z series of automobiles.

The most likely purchasers of the remaining single-letter domain names will be companies with deep pockets and already built brand equity for a given letter. A few notable examples come to mind. for E! Entertainment television network, for Oprah's O Magazine, and for Yahoo! (Y!).

I can envision the following companies bidding on these single-letter domains:

  • K-Mart for
  • T-Mobile for
  • Verizon for
  • Technorati Tags: , ,

    How about for Bed, Bath and Beyond? would fit for McDonnald's. You could even include it in the logo, just the ".com" behind the golden M.

    Interesting idea about the M for McDonald's. I was thinking G for Google's Gmail would be a good one, too. Their logo accentuates the letter G.

    I found your post really interesting. I found Internet marketing a really a great way of promoting a website. I found good results when I started internet marketing my website.
