CHIPs are a new category but have captured the imagination of domainers across the world. In the spirit, .IN are no different. Almost all the chips are registered, and as of the scan done a few weeks back just about 0.25% were available to hand register. Repeating numbers are all well and truly taken and have been for some time with a rare drop here and there. Western premiums which were the “Gold Standard” before the advent of CHIPs, and surprisingly for an English speaking populace, still have about ~37% unregistered names. Finally as for Indian Premiums, there are about 47% of these class of names available to register.
The total number of different “CHIPS”: Doing the maths, we get 20 X 20 X 20 X 20 (160K) combinations. These can be found here.
The total number of different “Repeating Letters”: Doing the maths, we get 26 combinations only. These can be found here.
The total number of different “Western Premiums”: Doing the maths, we get 17 X 17 x 17 X 17 (83,521) combinations. These can be found here.
The total number of different “Indian Premiums”: Doing the maths, we get 19 X 19 x 19 X 19 (130,321) combinations. These can be found here.
As noted above, and in the previous posts in the series, the rarest combination is the “Repeating Letters”. We can get fancy, and observe that there are only 20 names that are both CHIP and Repeating Letters, and possibly the rarest combination could be an LLLL.IN name that is repeating, CHIP and Western Premium. There are just 13 of them.
Below is my attempt to plot a Venn diagram for the above:
