    Seems to be getting more common for companies to be willing to pay a premium for typo .com's. I would guess the company is going to brand with it rather than it being a mistake.

    Domainnamewire's latest heading,

    "A strong month for .Com"

    Waiting for some new tyres I went for a walk along Johnston St Fitzroy and while dodging hipsters I spotted "I am free" in the .com ( a very hand url )

    Great name, shorter and better, they are ready to export with it aswell.

    No red tape, no .au issues, no risk of random deletion by someone on a gold throne.

    Such a name could be used for so many purposes, I think they have had it a while now, probably got a few offers over the journey!

    Agree. It is the kind of name that would get couple of thousand on the drops.

    Either way, quite cheap in my view. One to be developed.

    I would not recommend developing good domains, it sucks away all the sales leads.
