A real American GEO IDN

Yep, I found an American city that uses a tilde in it's official name - since 1994.


cañoncity.com - Cañon City


I even put it up for sale!

I wonder how many of the local residents have spanish keyboards, or can type a tilde?

Nice find. There is a city near me that also uses the ñ - La Cañada, but that domain was registered in 2001.

I think type-ins would be limited to Spanish speakers, but I do like the domain.

The name is now "La Cañada Flintridge"

I got the dot net. The dot com wasn't registered that long ago, actually.

You got the .org too I see.

A little long for my tastes but could make a decent sale.

I got the dot info as well. But I made the mistake to tag it as spanish, so now dynadot plays that silly locking game with affilias.
