Three letters domains cif.com is being hold on for pending detelted. It has been dropped twice in the last five years.
I have checked both whoise information and archive bookmarks. The following are the results.
ICANN Registrar:ANSWERABLE.COM (I) PVT. LTD.
Delete Name Server:DNS.PARKPAGE.FOUNDATIONAPI.COM (has 119,719 domains) DNS2.PARKPAGE.FOUNDATIONAPI.COM (has 119,719 domains)
cIf.com (on-hold (pending delete))
cIf.net (registered and active website)
cIf.org (registered and active website)
cIf.biz (registered and active website)
cIf.info (registered and no website)
cIf.us (registered and active website)
Of course, cif is a hot words as it’s short enough. And the most popular TLDs are registered and have active website already.
And cif.com has website since 1998 based upon the archive.com:) Then, let’s see what the word CIF short for at wikipedia.org.
BTW, there was an typo domain noika.com is being hold as well as.
I will updated the post once I got the acquisition prices for both domains.
[updated - 03/05/2009] CIF.COM – $17,001 and noika.com – $2,989
