As we get ready for the upcoming NamesCon conference, we’re excited to announce that we will be participating in their live and online auctions! Nine of our Premium Domain names will be available for auction from now until Jan. 21, 2016, with a minimum bid of just $300.
This month we’re focusing on you. Name.com is offering .ME registrations for just $7.99 and renewals for just $14.99 with the code ALLABOUTU !
.ME is becoming a more popular TLD and we’ve started to notice it gaining some traction. In the social media space, two new services have popped up fairly recently that have embraced this extension to help make things a little more personal.
Flavors.me is a slick service that lets you put up a website easily and add all of your content from other services like Twitter, Facebook, Flickr, and many others. We dig it. Plus if you get their premium service you can use a custom domain name, and we always like to see that.
Formspring.me is a really clever way to interact and get to know people through random questions. So if you’ve just been dying to ask your friend how many licks it takes to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop, now you can without feeling like a weirdo.
.ME can be used for regional purposes as well, helping to create a sense of community right off the bat. A great example of this is Boulder.me, a startup resource for our Colorado neighbors. From a community perspective, there is a lot of potential for .ME.
Now for the domainers out there, there’s currently a .ME auction going on over at NameJet and there’s a great opportunity to snatch up some first name domains. The personal names auction ends some time next week, so you’ll need to act fairly fast to get your bids in.
Cheers and happy bidding!
