Short UK Web Addresses Auctioned [telegraph.co.uk]
|Facebook, Google and Mercedez Benz were among big name companies which reportedly bid in an auction of pithy new UK domain names which included several single letter addresses. |
Domains such as x.co.uk and O.co.uk were among the most sought-after addresses on offer in the latest auction by Nominet, which runs Britainís web infrastructure.
Twelve single letter web addresses fetched an average of £39,000 each in the sale.
|But the desirable address g.co.uk went to an internet investment firm, which specialises in domain names rather than to Google, according to the newspaper. |

I think that Google have missed a trick here. The domain name can't have been that expensive compared with the billions that they earn each year.
