    .ME Available Today
    Just picked a couple up at GoDaddy. Don't forget to use coupons, can save some money. Damn I got a great one. There's still lots of great ones available.

    Question for those who use GoDaddy. How long does it usually take for domains to show in your account/folder? Went thru checkout, printed out receipt etc. I realize it might take a few for it to show up?

    Nevermind, called them. Said it usually takes 5-10 minutes to show up but they're a little backed up today. They confirmed I got the 2 I wanted tho.

    I hope they're just backed up. Registered 2 names, one that's really good, and they're not showing up in my account yet.

    Yeah, the guy said they have to compare the names to the different registrars to see who got it first. Sometimes people are registering them at about the same time. Even tho he confirmed I got them, I still want to see them show up in my account. Mine are still showing as available when I do a search on them. There's all kinds of common words.me available. And I was just checking sedo and see some of the same with like a .vg or some other weird ending and they're selling good. Some few hundred dollars, see some over $1000. So I'm really tempted to get some more.

    I've gotten over 100 of them already ... It's like an addiction I tell ya.

    The multi-million dollar one that I wanted (and would develop [not aff based]) is taken but just made an offer on it.

    I got some great ones also

    "I've gotten over 100 of them already ... It's like an addiction I tell ya."

    Yeah, this is something I could get into, wish I did years ago when I first started. The first two I was actually kind of panicky since I couldn't believe they were available and rushed thru it. Now I'm trying to think of some more. One is a major, major one. Something in the realm of a business.me, sex.me, america.me kind of deal.

    I hope that isn't the case with one I registered. It could be a real winner, or money maker, and hope someone didn't get it already somewhere else. *fingerscrossed*

    Did you get that after your receipt for it? I got a receipt for the 2 I got, didn't know if you can get a receipt and then end up losing the domain name. But like I said, I asked the guy to tell me what he was seeing in my account and he said it looks like I got them, so we'll see. Just checked, still not showing.

    Did you use a coupon too? I was rushing so I used a 20% off one, might be some better ones out there.

    I got the receipt, just waiting for them to show up in my account. I had a 20% off coupon.

    Crap, I just got a "Congratulations" from GoDaddy for only one of my domains and not the one I was concerned about.

    www.domain.me can show you quickly if your reg made it.....


    Only regged two so far, NovaScotia.me and Canal.me ( spanish for channel, I believe ) .

    I've had a dozen keywords in my cart, but keep backing out, I have so many .TV domains, I really need to stay focussed on that extension.
    Following everyone else is a GREAT way to become average.

    "Why would anyone want a .me domain I don't get it at all."

    Resell. Or some might want to get some keywords in there more for SEO purposes or somethingclever.me, stuff like that. I was thinking resell. Go thru Sedo or some other places like that and check what some of them are selling for, like I mentioned above.

    I couldn't figure out why anyone would want a .us until del.icio.us came along.

    Ok, as much as I'd love to continue, I'm done. I got 6 domains. Three are decent and three I'm really blown away that I got! Probably sell those three.

    It will be interesting to se which domains they withheld from registrations for the auction that will occur later. Names like fly.me, etc.

    Why would anyone want a .me? I don't know, why would anyone want a .us?

    Ask the folks behind del.icio.us how they feel about .us registrations.

    .me has potential as much as any other TLD.

    That said... I checked the status of a few I was interested in, and they're all taken. I started too late in the day to pick up the ones that would have really killed for me, like spam.me, to tie in with my book.
