Fun Domain Name Facts

Domain names are important to many businesses and organisations as they want the domain name which matches or at least supports their working name. Much expense is endured by companies to support this but none more so than the owners of the domain name insure.com which was sold for $16million in the year 2009.

The first domain name ever to be registered was the name symbolics.com and the name is still in use now. Back then, we doubt anyone could have predicted how huge domain names would become and if they did, they have probably earned a small fortune buying domain names cheap early on and then selling them in the years following for much higher sums of money.

Dot com domain names are the most regularly adopted domain names, with dot cn being the next highest registered domain names in the world.

All domain names must be three characters or more according to the dot com registering guidelines but all of the 50,000 or so domain names which are just three characters long have already been bought. The only way to obtain one of these domain names now is to buy it if and when they are put up for re-sale.

Surprisingly it is thought that all boy names have been registered as domain names already with some girl’s names left, although many are very expensive if people wish to secure them.
