Two Letter Domains for sale

VB.com = Very Beautiful
At VB.com besides researching brand histories
I have the chance to organise
iconoic Brand Expos
for many famous companies.

Our historic Cremerie de Paris
VB mansion near the Louvre
attracts them due to our unique
hi-tech and fashion history going back centuries
to 1370, 1648, 1671.
As a child Louis XIV came to our house
owned by his teacher Nicolas V de Villeroy.
1671 were invented at the same place
the Royal French Postal Services.
Spirit of technology has stayed in our walls ...

I had the chance to live the arrival of the Internet
working with Sony
and operating at the Cremerie de Paris
one of the first internet cafes.
At the time French Hotels
were not yet connected and
without realising it
we were a hotspot
for travelling US web pioneers.

Some were a little older.
One was the assistant of Dr Jon Postel,
another one was on the first flight to the moon
and another one `had known the inventor of the phone.
Others were still very young

and nobody knew who they were
or who they were
Today they come back with Pop Up Stores
for the companies they have invented
turning our old VB mansion into
a Meeting Place of the World's most famous Brands.

These Brand Builders
like the above inventor of Pokemon Go
are interested by my
"crazy and funny internet storeis"
and they might be amused to add a Two Letter
for their brands

In case you should own a Two Letter .dot com
and you wish to sell it let me know.

Cremerie de Paris
The idea to create the VB.com Internet Hall of Fame
was born in the first Cybercafe that existed in Paris,
today Cremerie de Paris.com.
It is published as it might interests the one or the other
to find out more about
the World´s shortest and most prestigeous Internet Addresses.


Hewlett Packard / HP.com, Texas Instruments / TI.com and General Electric / GE.com
registered their respective Domain Names for a couple of Dollars,
understanding the Internet .... years ahead of time

David Packard
David Packard (founder of HP)
and the internet people of Texas Instruments or General Electric,
they were years ahead of their time and they paid almost nothing
for something that nobody understood
and that would become extremely valuable.


- others like Deutsche Bank / DB.com, H&M / HM.com or Calvin Klein / CK.com paid "peanuts"
and bought the missed domains during the early years of the Internet,
still .... years ahead of their time.

- others like Liverpool Victoria / LV.com or LG Group / LG.com paid serious Money at a later time
still managing to make their Logos "Internet Age compatible"
... all these companies they are now in the Internet Hall of Fame.

- and others like Louis Vuitton / no LV.com or Deutsche Bahn / no DB.com
were very slow ... too slow and inefficient to understand the Coming of the Internet,
... they missed the initial Domain Registration .... at a time nobody knew
... they missed to once exisiting Opportunity to buy the Domain .... at a time Internet was in everybodies mind
... and they continue spending massive amounts of Money to advertise a Monogram, which they do not own .com
those are .... years behind of their time


The super short .com Domains have enormous Prestige,
they have been registered one by one .... at a time almost nobody knew about the Internet.
In most cases they were very hard to get .... and the companies in the Hall of Fame deserve to be there.

In 2009 were added: AT&T Yellowpages YP.com, LG Group LG.com, Lufthansa LH.com and Japan Tobacco / JT.com
In 2010 were added: Reckitt Benckiser RB.com, Russia Times RT.com, Dollar General DG.com and Facebook FB.com
