Question Finding the World's Smallest Domain

IDN Trvia? What is the world's smallest domain name?

This is not it but it is a good starting point.

Anyone know what it is?

Re: Finding the World's Smallest Domain

I thought my farsi Numeral domains are small enough, but yours are apparently smaller.
۴.com xn--hmb.com 4 (Numeral four)
۵.com xn--imb.com 5 (Numeral five)
۶.com xn--jmb.com 6 (Numeral six)
۹.com xn--mmb.com 9 (Numeral nine)

Re: Finding the World's Smallest Domain

I think you can expect more of the same and perhaps a lot of heated debate.

There is going to be a lot of frustration and some real anger out there.

There a going be issues, lots of them, and they are likely to get aired publicly.

The key, however, is when major corps that already have sites on IDN URL start to use those addresses in their marketing.

Yes... seems confusing to some and simple to others... and I do lean towards obviously owning ASCII.com along with IDN.IDN and/or IDN.ASCII to corner market... indeed for the more popular languages most of those are long gone unless deep pockets are interested/involved

Re: Finding the World's Smallest Domain

FYI - Rubber Duck - What happens after the '.' does not determine how
the pixels represent the letters.

Reality 1 - Someone out there TODAY owns the world's smallest domain.
(and should probably notify Guiness.)


Reality 2 - It aint no Rubber Duck!!! What the F@!@!@!@!K

(what happened to that part of your name? @HOLE)

Re: Finding the World's Smallest Domain

Look you will soon end up with single characters after the dot. The domain is the keyword and extension. Those with shorter extensions will be smaller domains.

Not that I really care. It is all semantics. The only extension that is really going to matter is dot com, and frankly I don't think that many people will give a shit whether it is in Latin characters or not. ICANN may be getting their day in the sun, but all the bollocks won't add up to a tin of beans. The real news was 6 -7 years ago. It is just most people didn't really understand what was going down.
