 I  was  working  on   a  domain  name  for  my  site  and  was  very  keen  to  go  ahead  with  www.f.in  as  the  url  for  my  site.  I  always  got  the  response  as  an  invalid  domain  name.  I  wonder  why,  since  single  character  site  like  x.com  does  exist!  Now  that  I  have  decided  against  this  particular  name,  I  dont  mind  asking.  :)
 
 Any  idea  why?

 @Shankar  -  Indian  domains  are  available  with  only  3  or  more  characters.  Rest  are  restricted  as  far  as  I  know.
 
 In  general  shorter  domains  sell  at  a  very  high  premium.
 
 EDIT:  I  rarely  get  into  the  domain  name  thing.  But  here  is  what  I  learnt  -
 Seems  almost  all  TLDs  dont  allow  less  than  3  characters  anymore.  Im  really  not  sure  about  the  reason,  but  one  of  them  is  do  reduce  confusion  with  more  number  of  TLDs  coming  up.  example  -  .co.in,  .org.in  etc.

 .in  is  not  supporting  less  than  3  digit  domains  for  certain  reasons,  but  the  most  recent  one,  .co,  it  still  has  got  some  1  letter  names  like  i.co,  k.co,  but  these  costs  much  over  that  of  a  'Nuclear  Bomb!'
 You  may  like  some  of  these  resources:
 
 .in  Domain  Policies
 Simple  Domain  Generator
 A  similar  domain  generator
 
 Also,  when  registering  a  domain,  make  sure  that  you  get  a  registerar  offering  DNS  as  well.  Some  offer  this  service  for  free,  some  charge.  Chargeable  services  are  too  costly  and  mostly  for  those  sites,  which  handle  ~million  queries/day/hr.
 
 I  have  several  domains  with  Directi,  earlier  I  was  with  goDaddy.

 Thanks  guys!  Much  appreciated.
 
 I  wondered  if  F  was  considered  offensive  and  hence  'invalid'.   Chuckle
