A new range of travel-related internet domain names will become available from December 2010.
One and two-character domain names, both letters and digits such as 1, or A1 and UA, have been reserved in all top level domains (TLDs) and all names have been required to have a minimum of three characters.
During December the .Travel TLD will accept proposals for registration of premium one and two-character domain names such as AA.travel, B.travel, 10.travel or 2.travel.
“This gives the travel community the opportunity to register names that are easy to remember and use,” a spokesman said.
“Shorter names have superior promotional potential and domain auctions have shown that their asset value can be many times that of longer names. Once these names are registered they rarely come back on the market.”
The names will only be released through proposal to .Travel, the company said. Details can be found at www.travel.travel.
