Kiwi popular site TradeMe acquired Cool.Me

Trade Me, the most popular online trading portal in New Zealand has acquired premium domain name Cool.Me. So far it is not clear what are the plans for this domain name.


.ME is enjoying another good year. In the most recent 2010 report Sedo listed it back in top 10 ccTLDs. In Q4 2010 alone, .me was ccTLD #4, right after .de, .co.uk, and .eu and well above .nl, .es, .fr, .co, .be, and .tv. Quite an achivement. In our previous post we have reported three […]
