SG uses ambiguous characters in its shortest domins

Postby ronbarak » Tue Jun 14, 2016 9:54 am

Currently, SG shortest domains are 9ox.net and Osg.net

The problem with using 9 is that people mix it with a g.
Similarly, 0 is mixed with o.

Will it be possible to add to 9ox and Osg a few 3 characters domains composed of unambiguous characters like 3,4,w,e,t,y?

haha - that probably explains why I was ever able to register those 3 character domains. They are (or were) really hard to come by. I suppose with all the new TLDs, maybe there are some more now?

I think one reason to have short domain names is to save typing. You can't do much better than dfgh.net for that.

Another is that fields for email addresses can be too short to contain long addresses (or to show it all at once - making checking a bit fiddly).

I originally chose quite a long Spamgourmet user name. By the time you add the ".n." for the number of mails allowed and "spamgourmet" itself being rather long, it got unwieldy.
