Re: Monetizing single characters
That's a good point. I guess I bought a few single-character domains because of the rarity. I was thinking more long-term, in that, if I had a 2 letter ASCII.com right now, it'd be worth some $$. That gives me hope that single-character names will be worth even more down the road.
That's also why I grabbed single numerals when I could find any available (and there weren't many left by the time I learned about IDNs). I was able to get some single numerals in Persian and Bangla.
I mean, if you look at ASCII domains, it is pretty amazing (for example):
"9" gets 155,312 OVT and "9.com" gets 1,247 OVT - There is no 9.com!
"m" gets 533,688 OVT and "m.com" gets 2,491 OVT - again, no site!
It would be great to get a nice conversion rate and some monthly revenue, but again, I bought mine as an investment. I mean, how much would Yahoo! pay for y.com? How much might Yandex (for example) someday pay for Я.com (I don't own that, by the way - hopefully the rightful owner is OK with me using the example)?
