GMO Internet , which runs Japan's largest Registrar Agent, has bought (press release) the Z.com domain from Nissan for 800 million yen ($ 6.8 million).

Jon Postel reserved all letter or number second-level domains in the .com , .edu , .net, and .org gTLDs for future Internet extensibility . In this way, these domains were registered in the name of the IANA (Internet Assigned Numbers Authority), a body that he founded and directed until his death due to complications in a surgical operation in 1998.

Even so, there were 6 domains out of a total of 144 that could not be reserved because they were already registered previously, they are the following:

q.com : Qwest Communications International Inc .

x.com : eBay Inc . PayPal. X.com Corp. was the former name of PayPal.
z.com : Nissan North America's Z sports cars. Nissan in 1999 already understood the importance of domains (Case Nissan vs Nissan )
i.net : Used by Inet Corp. , a domain registration company.
q.net : Registered by Q Networks , the last activity on this website dates from 1997.
x.org : Home page of the Open Group Foundation (now X.Org Foundation), which maintains the graphical technology of X Windows for Linux and Unix.

Nissan used the domain to promote its Nissan Fairlady Z sports car , produced from late 2002 to 2009 and replaced by the Nissan 370Z.
