A good domain is as important as ever for building a successful site, but the hype over domain names like the one over vowel-deficient names has died down.
Still, prices for coveted domains are going up and it doesn't get much more exclusive than single letter domains, even if they’re on the .org TLD.
Public Interest Registry, the non-profit that governs the .org TLD is putting up a whopping never before offered 89 single or double letter domains.
You can get in on the action via GoDaddy or eNom, a.org, b.org, o.org, 7.org and so on are available along with domains such as 57.org, 0p.org.
The only catch is that whoever buys them has to use them in ways defined by the Public Interest Registry, in keeping with .org's principles.
What's more, buyers will have to actually use the domains, not just acquire them for safekeeping. PIR says the money raised via the auction will fund projects it’s supporting, like new internet technologies and standards.
