There are 17,576 different combinations of three-letter .com domains, ranging from AAA.com to ZZZ.com.

The first domain on this list is AAA.com, which belongs to the American Automobile Association (also known as "Triple-A"). This organization was founded in 1902 to address a lack of suitable roads and highways for cars.

Today, AAA is most commonly associated with roadside assistance. In fact, we saw their domain name while stopped at a traffic light - one of many instances where we come across domain names in everyday life.

Interestingly, the picture accompanying this article features a reference to "AAA Batteries." This does not refer to the battery size, but rather to a car battery branded by AAA.

AAA.com was registered way back in August 1990 and cost nothing to register.

We refer to instances of spotting domain names in real-world settings as "domain sightings." These sightings can occur on signs, billboards, product packaging, and even vehicle wraps. We group them into different categories based on their TLDs, including .com domains like AAA.com.
