Recently, Telepathy, the top-level domain portfolio holding company of investor Nat Cohen, announced the successful sale of the highly coveted two-letter top-level domain name NS.com, which has once again sparked a lot of interest and buzz in the industry. The revelation came as a surprise, as there are few opportunities to acquire rare two-letter .com domain names today.

It was revealed that NS.com, a highly coveted top-level domain registered in 1991, is not only an extremely rare two-letter .com domain name, but is also a common abbreviation for "name servers" and other combinations of meanings. Currently, NS.com points to a login page for the Wechsler definition of "nanosecond," showing a very creative use of the word.

NS.com's registration history has also been quite convoluted, with the domain name known to have been registered with Dynadot and now transferred to German registrar 1API GmbH, while Telepathy.com appears to have acquired NS.com in 2008, with the details of the sale being revealed as recently as May 13th. According to WHOIS information provided by DomainTools, the deal extends the registration term to 2032, providing the buyer with a long-term stable domain name interest.
