Jingling .me domains are impossible to forget
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.
Alfa Romeo in the UK went live with "Without heart we would be mere machines" featured by Uma Thurman. But more importantly, see this video and count "me" slogans:
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.
