Short .vegas domains go on sale

Dot Vegas has made one and two-character .vegas domain names available to register on a first-come, first-served basis.

Single-character domains such as a.vegas and 7.vegas and two-character names such as 77.vegas and bj.vegas all appear to be available, including domains that match country-code TLDs.

Prices seem to be around the $2,750 to $3,299 mark for the one-character names at the three registrars Dot Vegas plugged in its announcement.

For the two-character names, you’re looking at $550 to $699, again depending on registrar.

Renewal fees for these short names seem to be about double what you’d expect to pay per year for a regular .vegas name, starting at over $100 per year.

Of the three promoted registrars — GoDaddy, Uniregistry and NameCheap — Uniregistry appears to be the cheapest and GoDaddy the most expensive.

The .vegas gTLD has been on the market for about three years and has about 16,000 domains in its zone file currently.

    BJ is the country code for Benin. You’ll need another example for two-character domains that don’t match country-code TLDs.

    I’m confused. .Vegas announced it was releasing these names back in April. Maybe it didn’t end up releasing them back then as planned.
