Are domains with the letter “i” at the front still popular?

Years ago Apple started a trend that swept the world, put the letter “i” in front of a word and it suddenly is the digital version of that word. We all know it worked pretty well with the iPod, then the iPhone, the iPad, and other companies quickly followed suit with companies like iHome and many more.

I felt like the “i” word trend really started to taper off a few years ago but recently saw that is expiring and getting some pretty strong interest on Go Daddy auctions. The domain name currently has 61 bids and just crossed the $5,000 mark with more than two days to go.


I’m not sure if it’s just me but I don’t really get this one. Sure, maybe there are some domains that are still hot. I could see something like being interesting maybe…but doesn’t really have much of a ring to it IMO.

Still, I haven’t had my eye on the “i” domain market so maybe there’s been something going on here that I missed. What do you think? Is a hot domain or has the ship sailed for iDomains and the bidding here is just people that are going to end up paying way too much for this domain?

I want to hear from you, comment and let your voice be heard!
