Review of 3 letter domains ending with TC

AcronymFinderAcronymFinder lists around 277 definitions for TC acronym. Among so many the one that stood out to me was the term ‘Telecommunications’ which is a one word with Tele+Communications and TC as its acronym

The Telecommunication market is huge. With growing mobile phone usage, the telecommunication companies will just keep growing. Insight Research Insight Research projects that telecommunications services revenue worldwide will grow from $2.2 trillion in 2015 to $2.4 trillion in 2019.

But, after analyzing the 26 three letter domains ending with TC, I realized that TC may stand for Technologies, Technology, Travel, training followed with Center, company or corporation. And, these industries are worth billions of dollars.

In view of it I made a quick research to see what companies are using a 3 letter domains ending with TC. – Advanced Technology Center – Site under construction – Bitcoin – An existing website. The domain reportedly sold for $1 million – Concurrent Technologies Corporation – Existing website – Forwards to (A name that forwards is basically not in use and maybe available for sale) – Etcetera Technology Corporation – Site status is under construction – Unresolved page – Forwards to website – Hightech Computer – A Taiwanese consumer electronics company. – Parked page – Parked page – Forwards to – Long term care – An existing website – Parked page – Parked page – Parked page – Parametric Technology company – Parked page – An existing website – Forwards to (In Saudi Arabia its stands for Saudi Telecom Company – – The Travel Corporation – An existing website – United Technologies – An existing website – Virtual Training Company – An existing website – World Trade Center – Unresolved page – Your Travel Center – An existing website – A parked page

The results:
Parked Page Domains – 7
Under Construction Domains – 2
Unresolved Domains – 2
Forward Domains – 4
Existing Biz website domains – 11

Google search for the various under constructed and parked domains shows lot of potential end users. And, clearly all domains above are worth 6 to 7 figures at retail pricing.

Case No. 1687597 – UDRP –

Often UDRP cases are related to two parties: A respodent and a complainant. But, what happens if the respondent are two corporations fighting together for one domain? This is the case No. 1687597 – The domain in question is

It caught my attention. On 20th September 2016, the domain was transferred to the right owner. But, who will be the owner of a Domain like where two big corporations are involved Goolge and Nike?

The Decision paragraph of this case goes as follows:
Having established all three elements required under the ICANN Policy, the Panel concludes that relief shall be GRANTED. In that regard, the Panel notes that Complainant Nike Inc. has, with the consent of Complainant Google Inc., requested that the disputed domain name be transferred to Complainant Nike Inc.

Accordingly, it is Ordered that the domain name be TRANSFERRED from Respondent to Complainant Nike Inc.

Full case history is available at:

Most of the Trademark violations when it comes to domains are related to one corporation. But, reading this case makes me think how someone can take a double threat?

But, one more interesting fact I found that this UDRP was filed earlier by NIKE Inc -Case No 1679233 and it was denied.

When Google and Nike together filed the URDP – They were able to claim this name.

Renewal and Drops of My Domain Names

I own very few liquid domains like 4 letters and some numeric ones. The other type of liquid domains that has at least some value in the eyes of domain investors are my Brandbucket approved names. Most of my portfolio at the moment consists of hand registered domain names. I’ve been into this business since last 3 year and I do it part-time.

Every month I make a plan to renew and drop some of the names. I not look for quick flips. I haven’t sold any domain at Namepros or to domain investors. I plan to hold my names for the right end user. Patience is important in domaining. And, this is how you succeed ultimately in this business.

This month I renewed the following domain names under dot com:

HowtoBuild (dot) org
Deo (dot) me

Will be dropping:

Incomplete: Names which I may renew:

It’s always not easy to drop names. Dot com names are becoming rarer every day. Some of the names which I renewed are listed at BrandBucket and there are some names like Smartress on which I received some inquiries.

Unmanned Domain Names

According to Wikipedia “Unmanned” usually refers to uncrewed vehicles (remote controlled, remote guided or autonomous) such as: Unmanned aircraft system (UAS), synonymous with UAV. Unmanned ground vehicle (UGV), such as the autonomous car. Unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV), unmanned aircraft commonly known as a “drone”.

Drone is a popular drone category. And, last month it was among the top 10 trending kewywords in terms of registration of .com domains according to Verisign. Names related to Drones are not easy to find.

Unmanned is a much broader term and it encompasses various UAVs and UGVs. The term is not popular in terms of domain registrations. But, it has a potential to grow in future. With more and more players entering the UAV’s market ‘the unmanned’ themed domain names might see an up tick in terms of registrations.

I own and I thought of looking into some .com domains beginning with Unmanned. After a bit of research I zeroed on dot com names such as:


Among the very few above, I got all except UnmannedMarket and UnmannedData. They were taken when I took a little time to rethink.

It seems lot of other domains are available with the unmanned keyword but with everyday news about unmanned vehicles and operations the number of good domains may go fast.

Some of the existing domains centered around unmanned keyword are:
Unmanned.Life (a new gTLD)

Should you invest in such names? The answer is not easy. I found some top keywords like app, news, blog and city associated with unmanned and were available for reg fee, so I registered them. At the same time, I noticed how fast and were taken by others before I got them.

How Will You Pronounce ZMZM

Recently I came across a website At first I read it as z m z m but after seeing its logo I understood how it’s pronounced.


Actually, zmzm stands for zamzam – the water one drinks during pilgrimage to Mecca.

From the domain point of view. In Arabic  zamzam letters are Z M Z M so if one want to write the same in English. One can skip the vowels and can write it as zmzm which is how exactly the domain in question is conceived.

I have came across several such advertisements/signboards where vowels were skipped and the original letters from the other language were transliterated as it is. For example the name Salman  and when transliterated it is as Slman. the roots are S, L M A N.

One thing to remember is that Arabic is the third most spoken language in the world and it makes sense to see the four letter and even other domains in that angle too. Apart from the Chinese Pinyin meanings.

When it comes to domains especially four letter which are not pronounceable because you see no vowels maybe are pronounceable when transliterated appropriately to an another language. It could be the CVCV when pronounced like the zmzm example.

Internet is still growing and there are lots of businesses around the world not yet online and as their presence increases online so that the demand for better names will. Now it is safe to say that the Domaining industry or business of domain names is not just limited to English speaking countries. We have seen how Chinese have changed the domain game and it’s possible that other countries may too follow the suit.
