Yes, all and not only in the .com extension – there are over 50,000 character combinations you can make with three characters and by 1997 all of them are registered in .com, quickly followed .net, .org, .info, .biz and many other extensions.

The first three-letter .com domain registered was on April 24, 1985, by BBN Technologies. Here are some well known brands operating on three letter names that you will surely recognize.
