Domain Drops Falls Into Place And Yes I Still Love dotME
Amazing how sometimes things just fall into place. Last night I was sitting with Tiffany working on the soon to be re-launched LocalTek website when a certain domain name popped in my head that I have been wanting for a couple years, it was not necessarily something I wanted for resell but more so for personal project reasons and was a bit on the fun side.
I had not really thought to check it in sometime and there was really only a couple extensions I would buy the domain in, one would cost more than I am willing to pay based on the use I have for it but the other would of been worth the cost.
Well, as I said I randomly decided to do a whois on the domain last night and noticed it was about to drop, as luck would have it it was in the GoDaddy expired domain auctions ending 23 hrs and 51 mins later.
Today I was able to get the domain name, super happy about it. I am just amazed at the timing. Sometimes the forces do align…
On a side note, recently in one of the comments here someone asked me if I still believed in the .ME extension. I would say more so than ever before.
Watch TechCrunch or any other startup or tech blog and keep an eye on the domains that people are launching with. Even the most diehard .Com purist would have a hard time ignoring that the extension has done well. Without a doubt startups have figured out next to .COM that .ME is a marketing teams dream for branding… When combined with the proper left of the dot word.
