.ME Domain bidding getting a little too nuts.

by Texas_Guns 16 replies
I registered 20 .ME domain names and 19 out
of 20 went to auction. I'm a little shocked at
what some of these are selling for.

The highest I've bid one one was for over
$1K, and that was days ago and the thing is
now past $4K.

Anyone scooping up some good names?

Anyone winning some auctions?

    I can't believe they're still auctioning them!

    I lost every single one I bid on. So I think GoDaddy is making a killing.

    Watch them follow this same strategy (new tld) every year to boost their bottom line.

      No worries - GoDaddy will refund you all of your
      money if you lose the auctions.

      I emailed them the other day and asked about
      that...

        .ME LMAO. --- .COM is always going to be king. Before this all said and done, losing your favorittes files will be like having a hard drive crash... Because you won't know what TLD a site used, much less the actual domain name.

        $4000 for a .ME? That's insane.

            Maybe someone should go ahead and create the .you top level domain. There are some interesting domains you could come up with for that TLD.

              I bought a few .me and love it. In fact a few days after I got an email from a buyer but I denied his offer. Then he comes back and says, "I understand. I wouldn't sell it either".

              It's a single word and the entire world knows this word but I will not reveal it yet.

              But yeah give a few more months and the price will go up hopefully.

                It'll be interesting to see how Google ranks
                .ME pages because there is a much higher
                price tag than names like .info names, and
                people would be less likely to buy up 200
                .me domains to spam the search engines.

                Man... buy a domain and get an offer on
                it a few days later? Nice job!

                    Look at this one:
                    oglasi.me 79 bids 10H 39M left current price: $40,004

                    Maybe I'm missing something, but what
                    in the heck is oglasi????

                    NOTE....

                    A few of the names I tried to purchase
                    are in that list of the top 25. I guess
                    I knew which names would get the
                    most cash... but not the cash I'd be
                    willing to pay! ha!

                        Wow, Thanks everyone I was unaware of a .me going online less alone on auction. Maybe I should have been reading my godaddy e-mails.
                        I'm going to the auction after I visit Godaddy

                          With all this .me fever going on I put my mortgaging.me domain up for auction at godaddy... it will be interesting to see what happens!

                          Texas_Guns, I read that 'oglasi' means something like 'ads' in Croatian.

                        They should of been able to reg their TMs in the Sunrise period...

                        Personaly, I wouldn't bother regging a TM domain... I think you are just asking for trouble!
