Have you noticied that google.cn doesn't redirect anymore to google.com?

Would this be the shortest domain ever? I mean how can you get a domain less than 3 characters? g.cn

That's 4 characters.

>> That's 4 characters.

He means the "g" part. And I think it depends on who controls the TLD, Verisign control the .com's, Nominet .uks etc.

[put at-character here]RC: Yea, a long time ago you was allowed to create short domains [ig. ix.de or x.com]. now the shortest number of chars is 3...

My favourite type of domain names are ones like dontclick.it or u.tv

I guess I mean the dot as the 4th char. (Good thing I don't get paid by the h[um]our.)

And Keith, that's never been pointed out to me. Cool.
