Grand Keyword .ME auctions II (results)

Second set of 178 top keyword .me domain names was auctioning at Sedo for a week. As of half an hour before the end there were about $126k of bids. In the last 30 minutes, forex.me became the front runner and the total bids increased to $184k. Though naturally most of the show happened during the last minutes and two hours after the official deadline. About 50 auctions were still running 15 minutes after the deadline, as new bids prolonged them. The final take from the auction was $361,275 or about $2,425 per domain name. This was much better than last December and very close, yet still below, the greatest .ME registry sale last year. Despite the quality of keywords is not that of jingles the names did very well.

Hotel.Me came as the winner the race ($25k). It was followed by life.me ($17.5k), forex.me ($16k), and cams.me (10k) which also crossed $10k line. The other names stayed below five digit positions.

In terms of bids, life.me and movies.me were the leaders with 117 and 114 bids respectively. Other enjoyed less than hundred bids.

If we look only at the names that met the reserve price (94 of them), the average take was $3,656 per domain name, even slightly higher than during the premium auction one year ago.

Thus talking about the sales, this is the league list of this year premium .ME auctions with 60 closing bids about $1,000:

hotel.me ($25,000, 78), life.me ($17,450, 117), forex.me ($16,099, 64), cams.me ($10,000, 24), usa.me ($9,200, 76), gift.me ($9,000, 53), movies.me ($8,800, 114), who.me ($8,277, 76), train.me ($8,200, 44), blackjack.me ($7,400, 73), file.me ($7,301, 52), creditcard.me ($7,200, 23), wine.me ($7,100, 53), dates.me ($7,100, 43), mortgage.me ($7,100, 41), doctor.me ($7,100, 32), cruise.me ($7,076, 60), macau.me ($7,000, 46), lawyer.me ($6,600, 30), stocks.me ($6,399, 80), newyork.me ($6,200, 33), pet.me ($6,100, 31), college.me ($6,055, 29), yoga.me ($5,650, 35), team.me ($5,300, 56), coffee.me ($5,100, 18), toys.me ($5,050, 66), vancouver.me ($4,900, 25), journal.me ($4,800, 64), source.me ($4,800, 60), center.me ($4,700, 63), 411.me ($4,544, 35), diabetes.me ($4,100, 31), technology.me ($4,000, 12), mall.me ($3,800, 41), adventure.me ($3,675, 44), school.me ($3,600, 15), shoe.me ($3,300, 51), llc.me ($3,111, 37), friends.me ($2,750, 19), cricket.me ($2,550, 36), venture.me ($2,550, 23), asia.me ($2,401, 25), science.me ($2,350, 29), files.me ($2,250, 32), earth.me ($2,151, 30), europe.me ($2,150, 12), webhosting.me ($2,100, 13), attorney.me ($2,050, 13), airlines.me ($2,000, 35), seattle.me ($2,000, 15), software.me ($1,850, 18), bag.me ($1,451, 18), tickets.me ($1,250, 17), hongkong.me ($1,200, 6), germany.me ($1,150, 6), copyright.me ($1,100, 19), wedding.me ($1,050, 14), cameras.me ($1,050, 4), and vacation.me ($1,049, 8 )

Nearly half of the names, namely 84, didn't meet the reserve prices:

999.me, adoptions.me, airline.me, bald.me, bar.me, been.me, bird.me, blue.me, boats.me, body.me, camp.me, camping.me, can.me, chatroom.me, clock.me, colombo.me, contactlenses.me, continue.me, creditcheck.me, credits.me, digitalcameras.me, domainhosting.me, domainregistration.me, dvd.me, dvdplayer.me, electronics.me, euro.me, families.me, gibraltar.me, graduate.me, greeting.me, hebrew.me, honeymoon.me, hospitals.me, hoteldeals.me, japan.me, jewelers.me, language.me, laptop.me, legal.me, localdirectory.me, luck.me, magazine.me, mathematics.me, mobilephone.me, mozambique.me, ocean.me, offshore.me, parents.me, partners.me, pda.me, personals.me, prayer.me, printer.me, private.me, prize.me, promotion.me, psychologists.me, publicrelations.me, ratings.me, recycling.me, resort.me, restaurant.me, searchengine.me, shoppers.me, singles.me, skin.me, slimming.me, sofa.me, sofas.me, tabletpc.me, telephone.me, tours.me, town.me, tractors.me, traveling.me, uruguay.me, webhost.me, websitehosting.me, west.me, wifi.me, wines.me, winter.me, and wrestling.me

Hence, resulting in no sales (unless the registry changes its mind). This would deprive them from $17,632 of extra revenues (or $321 per domain name). Most probably we shall see these names coming back next season.

29 names, or 16% of the total received no bids at all:

chatroom.me, clock.me, colombo.me, continue.me, credits.me, dvdplayer.me, families.me, gibraltar.me, hospitals.me, jewelers.me, luck.me, magazine.me, mathematics.me, mozambique.me, parents.me, partners.me, pda.me, personals.me, printer.me, prize.me, promotion.me, ratings.me, slimming.me, sofas.me, tabletpc.me, tours.me, town.me, uruguay.me, and wines.me

15 auctions lasted longer than one hour: airlines.me, center.me, cricket.me, diabetes.me, files.me, life.me, macau.me, mall.me, movies.me, shoe.me, source.me, team.me, usa.me, who.me, and yoga.me. Five of them, center.me, shoe.me, source.me, team.me, and who.me, lasted longer than two hours. All of these finished shortly (past two hours) and the last one source.me finished in about 200 minutes of extended period.
