Press release from: ZyNet Ltd

After nearly 20 years, the domain name of ZY.COM is up for auction.

Two letter dot com (.com) domains were sold out in 1994, and have become a much sought-after commodity. They are rarely for sale out on the market. ZY is one of only 676 two letter .com domain names in existence. Not only is it an extremely rare domain name, but it is pronounceable as well.

Two letter domain names are incredibly easy to remember. ZY is also pronounceable in both Chinese and English making it far more valuable than combinations such as XH and FJ.

Recently sold domains are for $186,000, for $125,000, for $101,000 and which sold for $8.5M. is arguably better than any of these unpronounceable domains. Who knows how much it will be worth in the future as premium domain name values continue to increase. This domain name could be used as an abbreviation for many things. There are 149,000,000 results for the search term "ZY" in Google, and hundreds or even thousands of corporations, companies, and businesses worldwide that ZY could be an acronym for. It is even an acronym for the town of Zhong Yuan in China.

Despite the introduction of other top level domains, such as .info and .tv and .mobi, the two letter .com domains remain the most prestigious and valuable.

Over the past two years very few two-letter domain names have come up on the market. Those that have include: - $8,500,000 (sold to Facebook) - $500,000 - $186,000 - $150,000 - $125,000 (purchased by a Chinese company)

Companies worldwide have pursued the ZY.COM domain over the years. Most recently, offers have come from the USA and China.

Domain names are an excellent investment and retain their value extremely well. Such a short and memorable domain such as will always be desirable.


ZyNet was founded in 1994 as one of the earliest Internet Service Providers in the UK. In 1997, ZyNet became heavily involved in the development of ZyWeb, one of the first web-based page builders that enables anyone to create a professional graphically appealing website, without the need for any design or technical knowledge. ZyWeb won the Best ISP Product at the Internet Industry awards in 1999. In the height of the dotcom era ZyWeb was sold by many prestigious companies including NBCi in the USA, who subsequently withdrew from providing internet services. ZyWeb continues to be sold very successfully.

ZyNet subsequently developed 350pages using the latest technologies to provide the next generation page builder. 350pages makes extensive use of modern browser technology to provide a fully featured, interactive user interface with everything you expect in a modern application.
