Future Registrations of Single-Letter and Double-Digit Domain Names Being Considered by ICANN.
A.COM? 4.BIZ? ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, is considering how one and two character domain names for generic top level domains should be allocated in the future.
A current proposal being considered by ICANN calls for opening registration of single-letter and double-digit domains in future gTLDs.
Currently, ICANN reports that all 16 gTLD registry agreements (.AERO, .ASIA, .BIZ, .CAT, .COM, .COOP, .INFO, .JOBS, .MOBI, .MUSEUM, .NAME, .NET, .ORG, .PRO, .TEL, and .TRAVEL) provide for the reservation of single-letter and single-digit names at the second level.
