Two Letter Premium Domain Names are some of the most limited and premium domains, names not only in the .au domain name space, but also in other TLDs and ccTLDs.
When we refer to two letter domain names we are referring to domains with letters rather than numbers, such as PD.com.au. There are a total of 676 possible two letter combinations.
Two letter domain names have commanded large sale prices such as $42,000 for PD.com.au which was brokered by Robert Kaay from DBR to Progressive Direct insurance. There are many other large sales, however, due to fact that these premium domain name sales are subject to confidentiality most of the time we can’t publish those sale figures.

There are several reasons why smart companies are buying them in the .au domain name space, for instance:
- they are easy to type on smart phones and mobile devices, which is where most internet traffic is now coming from;
- they are easy to remember;
- they won’t easily be confused with other domain names;
- they command authority;
- they are a great abbreviation for long business names;
You only need to look at some of the companies that hold these premium domain names to see that they are coveted:
Radio Rentals – rr.com.au
Progressive Direct Insurance – pd.com.au
Hewlett Packard – hp.com.au
LG Electronics – lg.com.au
Fugro – ag.com.au
OO – oo.com.au
Due to the very limited number of these domains they are hard to secure, and for the reasons outlined above they are highly sought after. Some letter combinations are better than others. The most valuable two letter domains are typically those which means something like HR.com.au, KG.com.au, and CV.com.au.
In the .com space these two letter domains are even more exclusive and more expensive. Some Two Letter Premium Domain Names in the .com space include British Airways BA.com, American Airlines AA.com, Calvin Klein CK.com, and Walt Disney xg.com.
