    My research team is looking at some of the new Gtlds and hate to say, some of them have lots of potentials. Consequently. this will affect the dot me/co…net/info..

    Having invested in the stocks since 2010 and investments have gone up to 45%, it is a waiting period to SELL and buy other investments.

    Having that said, lots of public money is being diverted to stocks, real estate and lastly to….domains.

      There are still billions of cash sitting in the dust and investors are still waiting to invest in the market and there are those who had missed the bull run and waiting to put their money in the market.

      As they said, the waves keep getting higher and higher because the money is still flowing into the market and pushing the waves higher and further….

      I can get my MONEY now buy hitting the “Sell” button but for domains, I have to wait and wait for some a**ss domainers…

  3. I don’t own any .me but I like the extension.
    It has some potential although it is somewhat limited.
    Great article Mark.

      Everything outside of .com and your country code has limitations imo, one of the things I like best about .me is its wider appeal and use, as opposed to .tv, .xxx, .hotels, etc…

    I need your opinion…..

    I have a difficulty to choose between .co and .me

    Assuming I am buying a generic 2 word domain and all .com .net and .org are taken. The .co and .me are still available.

    So, which one will you recommend to buy for resell/investment point of view? .co or .me? It’s a hard choice for me…..or just buy both?

    Let say for an example,

    BestApartments.co
    BestApartments.me

    Which one to invest?

    • Mark says:

      From a resell/investment point of view it sounds like I wouldn’t get any of them, I don’t really believe in .co unless it’s really huge, and if it is still available it probably isn’t, my experience with .co has been .com backspace, it happens every time. And like I said about .me in this post:

      ” I got a few huge 2 word terms but I do not get many inquiries on them so I am strictly sticking with single words and acronyms”

    Great article Mark. .Me sounds well and many end-users believe it to be a personal extension rather than the cctld of Montenegro and that’s where it’s having the push. Further, I read that the middle east companies too pick .me because .me to them means middle east.

    I’m in a cult!

  7. .ME of course! says:

    Great article Mark,

    We also monetise .ME names be reselling emails and subdomains on domains like irish.me, kiwi.me, indian.me…

    Jotted you a note about how to run your own registries.

    Let’s stay in touch.

    good insight to know about resale of Single words against killer 2 word .me`s`

    • Mark says:

      Yea Stu, I have really noticed this, if not a verb, it’s the short, single words seems to sell the best for me…
