    I just checked 3 of them.. They are not working.

    Huh

    Why?

    Idk if they are for sale somewhere else.

    But

    Those who are paying millions for 2L&2Ns better off buy these ones ... even with more price .iThink so.


    They are more than anything ...everything /brands/ starts wiz one of a-z.

    Whats on Pros mind about this, ha?

    Single letter .com's were held back by either ICANN or the regitry. Don't remember which. Two or 3 did slip through the cracks and got registered, but I don't think they've ever been tested in the marketplace.

    not for sale

    if they offered them for sale , this would crash the always uprising king dot com

    these single letters should remain not priced , unreachable for ever to keep the king moving

    many premium top domains would lost their attractiveness once they are sold and developed

    I don't see how anyone could even price a domain like x.com, the number would break all domain sale records IMO..

    No. Z.com was 'tested'. Result: $8 million i believe.

    They were allowed once. Then there were no longer allowed by ICANN. Eventually most of them were dropped by the owners. A few were not dropped and that is why they still exist.

    1-char .COM are no more allowed since long time. Some have been registered in the early days of WWW and renewed so they exist until today, like Z.com or X.com. Similar with .ORG - X.org is one of the old examples. And one can see it's not all about money - they keep this domain since they have established a great open source product. But .ORG have been put finally on an auction. The only problem for domainers - you would need to be a non-business oriented organization.

    But if you care about 1-letters... well .COM are reserved, but you still can get some 1-letter ccTDLs at $$$$ range prices. They are not .COM but they have their own advantages - like beeing the shortest format domains like http : / / L.LL

    x.com, times ago, was a resource/documentation for paypal devlopers.
    You can find a lot of dead links to x.com on forums like stackoverflow.
