« Back to Domain Name Dictionary | Definition of Premium Letters
In English, there are 21 consonants (B, C, D, F, G, H, J, K, L, M, N, P, Q, R, S, T, V, W, X, Y and Z) and 5 vowels (A, E, I, O and U). Some people consider Y to be a vowel sometimes; in those cases there would be 6 vowels and 20 consonants.
Of the standard 21 consonants, some letters appear more frequently in the English language and are therefore referred to as “premium letters” for domain names. These premium letters include: B, C, D, F, G, H, L, M, N, P, R, S and T. The remaining 8 “non-premium letters” include: J, K, Q, V, W, X, Y and Z.
You will have an easier time selling domain names containing premium letters than non-premium domain names as there will be more companies or individuals with those initials.
