EFX1 was speculation on my part. I saw it become available on a list of expired domains and thought that someone might want to use it as a brandable name.

EFX suggests “effects” to me.

The number of four character domain names is limited which has some value.

I used it occasionally when I wanted a test domain to try out new software.

efx1 was first registered in 2007.
