I now checked the 17,576 three letter .biz combinations and found that FMA has dropped almost all of their .biz domains. And although he dropped almost 70% of his 3-letter .info collection he now dropped almost all his .biz domains! FMA now has almost 3.6% of the .biz domains they once had. They dropped
4,726 .biz domains.
Future Media Architects, Inc. (FMA) is owned by domainer Thunayan K AL-Ghanim (aka “Elequa”). FMA is known for not selling any domain names.
So it used to be that all 3-letter combinations for .biz were registered but not anymore. .Com, .net, .org, .info and .us(?) are still holding.
FMA had about 4901 .biz domains registered. Most were acquired in 2003 and 2004 when FMA registered about 2500 .info domains and about 4600 .biz domains.
The interesting thing is that when I removed all the .biz domains that had the average quality letters (J, K, U, V, W) and the lower quality letters (Q, X, Y, Z), only 2 (two) domains were left. Yes, just TWO: mhb.biz and gho.biz are pending delete.
All the other 4,724 .biz domains had at least one of these lesser quality letters in them.
FMA now owns about 175 .biz domains like:
Fma.biz is not owned by FMA.
FMA dropped 4,726 .biz domains like:
548 .biz were registered after they dropped such as:
4151 .biz domains are free now like:
Very few are still in a pending delete state.
So I have to ask once again: is this happening because of the New gTLDs and the large supply of 3-letter domains?
