Weird One Character Domain Superstore! Unicode IDN domains from á.xyz to 🧦.ws!

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/06/11

Untypable one-character domain names:

  • Where do the listings of single character domain names come from?
    Artificial intelligence enabled robots. Our sophisticated unicode discovery algorithms use blockchain enabled machine learning to provision containerized solutions within the context of the public cloud. We then use a durable message bus to inject our findings into big data, creating a graph database of unique identifiers. Finally, the results are delivered to the client via the latest in standards compliant TCP transport technology from our custom cluster of machines running a significantly more performant variant of node js.
    All the Auction and Aftermarket listings come from GoDaddy.
