Mostly because I had too much time this week on planes, plus I had some data, I got to thinking about domain name frequency. Does the first-letter frequency among the top 1,000,000 web domains by traffic match the first-letter frequency of words in the English language?
The Web isn’t Brought to You By the Letter “T”

Well, here is the result. The first column contains all 26 letters sorted by their frequency in first-letter English usage, the second column is their first-letter frequency in domains, the third column is their first-letter frequency in English, and the third column is the difference.
My question: Why do so few popular domain names, relatively speaking, start with “t”? And I really need to ramp up my plan to rename this site “cedrosky.com”.
