How Do I Get a Single-Letter Domain?

Getting a single-letter domain can be quite challenging, as most single-letter domains are highly sought after and already registered. In this article, I will describe some methods for obtaining single-letter domains. Note, non-ASCII single-character domains are not part of this discussion.

If you want a single-letter .com, .net, or .org domain, then it's just a dream. It's nearly impossible to get such domains. They are not available for registration and you can only buy them from from existing owners with sky-high prices (at least several million dollars for .com). However, if you want a single-letter country code top-level domain or a single-letter new generic top level domain, then there are many ways to get one.

  1. Buy one from domain investors who acquired them early on. This is probably the easiest way, but it can be the most difficult way. Usually, new generic top-level domains (gTLDs) are cheaper than country code top-level domains (ccTLDs), and domains with lower renewal prices are more expensive to buy. Needless to say, the meaning of the domain, the stability of the government (for ccTLDs), and the history of the registry will also affect the price of the domain. Thus, the selling price of a domain can vary greatly, and in many cases, the seller will ask the buyer to make an offer. We have several single-letter ccTLDs for sale, you may contact us if you are interested.

  2. Register directly. Pay attention to the news about registries. Domain registries sometimes release single-letter domains for public purchase. For example, Afriregister is selling .bi single-letter domains now.

  3. Check expired domains. Occasionally single-letter domains will expire and become available again for registration, but usually they are expensive to renew; e.g., .gy and .nf single-letter domains.

Investing in a single-letter domain can be a significant financial commitment, as they are considered highly valuable assets. Whether you should invest in one or buy one for your own use depends on your specific goals, budget, and long-term plans.
