Re: ➑.com Eight Ball

I can be short about the absence of ascii-equivalence, it's not possible to register 1.com....9.com so these symbols have not equivalent ascii-names in terms of branding.

8 - is "eight" in english but it is "huit" in french and "acht" in german (to name a few), a number domain is much more powerful than the spelled out counterparts in terms of branding because it is universal.

If the impossibility of type-ins would be funest, it would affect the "8"-symbols just as much as it would affect the other number-symbols but still intuition tells you that the "8"-symbols have a certain value, they represent a huge market (gambling for instance) and they are very powerful because of the symbolic nature. No they cannot be typed-in but the people can be made aware of ➑.com as a brand in itself.

Eight . com is representative
➑ .com is iconic
