    Cheap renewal.
    Short.

    Downsides

    I'm sure I'm missing something here so I have to ask.

    When you people say that it doesn't pass the radio test, what do you mean exactly?
    I mean, let's say we run the radio test on the domain nice[dot]one; how will people hearing that being said misunderstand it? Will it be confused with another word?

    thanks

    We mean that when there is advertisement in radio and they will mention the domain name, it will fail in case it is not clear for listeners how exactly they are supposed to spell it :)
    Example : car.one - some people will spell it correctly, but lot of people can also think it was car.won, because there is only slight difference in pronunciation of one and won..so it does not pass radio test.

    Thanks. Exactly what I wanted to know.

    Since I'm not a native speaker I can't really imagine how 'one' could possible sound other than 'wan' :)
    In my language is almost impossible to 'mis-hear' things since the words are much clearer pronounced than they are in English.

    Thanks again for the insight.

    "because there is only slight difference in pronunciation of one and won"

    In the U.S. there is absolutely no difference in the pronunciation of one and won. They are identical when speaking and listening.
