Re: 2 letter cyrillics

What is the value of 2 letter cyrillic chars now-a-days considering almost if not all possible combinations are already taken? I believe a few members on IDNF were willing to pay out 2000-3000$ for single letters not too long ago, but what do you guys think the cyrillic 2 letters would go for on the market today as well as possibly in a year? Any guesses?

Cheers.

The value probably depends on whether the combination spells a real word, or whether it is even pronounceable.

There are 33 letters in the Russian alphabet (I'm ignoring non-Russian Cyrillic characters), meaning that there are 1089 possible two-letter combinations. At the moment, 254 are still unregistered in .com. Most of them are unpronounceable, such as бй.com or ьх.com. There are a few, like ыж.com and ёш.com, that can be pronounced. Some, such as сы.com, are words in non-Russian languages.

If anyone is interested, I can post a list.

As for the value, who knows? It would be interesting to see which are already taken in .рф. One-character Russian domains cannot be registered in .рф, by the way.

Thanks for that. Sure, a list would be awsome. Maybe I'll take a couple myself as well as other forum members on here.

OK, here is the list of available 2-letter combinations in .com (as of 60 minutes ago). Sorry it is not very nicely formatted; I have run out of time.

Re: 2 letter cyrillics

Avtal, what exactly do you mean by non pronouncable ?

Would you consider the english domain TG.com to be non pronouncable ?

Also I think one factor to consider in the valuation is that some russian letters never or almost never begin a word, as a result there is no acronyms using those letters.

Re: 2 letter cyrillics

Thank you for the list Avtal, yeah I see what you mean. All the good combinations are taken and what is left is combinations that do not start too many words that make sense when put together. These Letters have a limited number of words they start and even more smaller chances of starting two words that make sense when used together unless it is a collector that needs these two letters to complete a personal name or a specific business name. That is my understanding anyway... feel free to add anything

Re: 2 letter cyrillics

By the way I decided to try my luck with (мщ.com) from that list. Thanks Avtal

вщ.com is still available, in case anyone wants to try it out.

Good questions. I was intentionally vague when I used the term "unpronounceable", because 1) I was in a hurry, and 2) I'm not a native speaker.

But here is some more information, based on a perusal of my Russian-English dictionary, which I bought 30 years ago (and which therefore lacks words like блог and компьютер).

The letters ъ and ь modify the pronunciation of preceding letters and therefore can never start a word, and in Russian ы almost never starts a word (I can't speak for other languages). In Russian, ы cannot follow ж ч ш or щ, so for instance the Kazakhstan city of Шымкент is by definition misspelled in Russian.

Before the post-revolutionary spelling reform, ъ was often used at the ends of words; for instance, the preposition с was written съ, which is still available in .com. This might be of interest if you want to create a site for Russian monarchists.

Avtal

P.S. If you get frustrated by the lack of meaningful two-letter combinations, there are still some three-letter Russian words available in .com. For instance, лоб пес тыл гад люк.

Re: 2 letter cyrillics

For someone that is not a native Avtal, you seem to know quite a bit about Russian grammer. I would say even more then the typical native.
It should be definately stressed that not all 33 russian characters can be used to start words. Better to check twice before regging

TG in English can be an abbreviation of many words/word combinations.
In Russian very few (or none) words start with й, ё, ь, ъ ,
so combos with these letters are pronounceable but useless ,imxo
This is besides the fact that 2 letter are very valuable in US/Europe but will they be in other markets?

Thanks, though my knowledge is more theoretical than practical.

Some example acronyms (not necessarily of commercial value):
мё : морской ёж (sea urchin)
хй: Хатха-йога (Hatha yoga)
