    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.
