There is No G.com, Y.com, M.com, Why Not?

Carsten Cumbrowski imageGoogle’s acquisition of the one character g.cn domain, reminded Carsten Cumbrowski, writing in Search Engine Journal, of the old question about one and also two character domain names in the gTLD space like .com, .net and .org.

Who has domains that are only one or two characters long and how did they get them and why are they rarely in use? asks Carsten. One two-letter domain name I know of that is in use is bt.com, registered by British Telecom, while ba.com was registered by British Airways but redirects to britishairways.com.
