discuss I was shocked to see .ME sales

Somehow I happened to check .ME sales and here is what I came across:

Just look at single word names like Flora, 3 letter names, prospect, contractor etc. All these are terrific brandable names with great potential. .ME is like the LinkedIn of the internet if you look at it in one way. I don't know why the sales are so low and the extension is not taking off.

Not that I am heavily invested but really, this is one extension I wish and hope takes off!
What's your thought on this?

In the (paraphrased) words of our lord and saviour - one day everyone will know the truth about .me despite all of the nay sayers!!

I like .ME personally, especially when the word matches the word 'me'. I also wonder whether there's a play on meta looming.

I'm not heavily invested either, I have about 10.

I don't think it has a connection to meta in any way or would ever have.
But still, individually, a big value that it adds to the personal profile maybe.

It's not what we think, it's what the end user / company thinks unfortunately.
Think from an individual's perspective. Maybe it is the number of registrations rather than sales we should be tracking? What do you say?

I did well with .me domain sales between 2008-2013
probably spent about 150 k on premium one word domains - sold about 850 k - 1 million usd worth in sales - and i believe all were acquired by end-users

i recently received an offer of 5 k on afternic on a .me that i had forgotten to renew, and i dropped one last year that was picked up by a company from india that uses .me as its main site and it scored 55 million usd in funding recently

i still have at least 50 premium one word .me domains that are taken in 300 extensions or more

not many offers, as between 2008-2014...

well, lowball offers from domainers, but i'd rather donate them than sell a domain that i paid 7500 usd in 2008 as a tax write off than sell to a domainer seeking a flip and 10-20% ROI

but that's .me

You are one smart domain investor to think that way!
Impressed. I should read more of your threads!

If some big registrars offer them as an alternative to .com, then it will do well. Same for other extensions. Nothing special about .xyz, except that some group is promoting it after acquiring the best (if any), I think. I seem to have one sale and two drops as far as I remember. such promo happened to .global, .tv, .co,. cc, .ws , in the past (strangely, never to .info, .biz, because noone got all the best in advance). ..seems popular among domainers. (mostly just opinion)

I could only guess that many of these names were acquired by single person on this forum @Shahid7 😆
Haha that's funny :) i Normally do buy domains but not all of them were bought by me some have have just gone to expiry and have been renewed which belonged to me.

But no doubt dotme is nice and i have been involved into it from along time we are just trying our best to launch what's the best for me and the community in the coming future with Cars.me and a few other domains

only convert.me from the list is of commercial value in my eyes, the rest...?
contractor.me doesn´t make sense, does it for you?
I guess me extension is simly doomed to be formed into a "delicious domain".
Me too have some .me names and like the wording, but it has to match like
convert.me if saleable, or just like beerinside.me if for fun

90% of these domains are authority domains. Their value is their backlink profile and search engine presence history.
If you do have a moment to spare, could you kindly explain what you mean by this? I realize that the post was a while back, but it's an interesting perspective you have shared.
 
Notable sales this month:

Gigs.me - $5,299 @ BrandStation.io
Stories.me - $8,888 @ Sedo

I see that XYZ tribe have come and downvoted my last post. Clearly I'm "enduring an accusation" about .me. I hope that this is not the case.

endured so many accusations about xyz

I see no one accuse your sales, even though they won't keep doing that on every post, besides, I don't understand how this downvote function working, maybe it's automatically calculated by the system based on your history performance.

and I don't remember I ever downvoted you, I only hit disagree/dislike button if I don't like it.

You're having a laugh!! If that were the case you'd certainly know about it.

Those are always public.

Anyway, I just wanted to check that I'm not suffering an accusation. I think I am because I'm invested in .me and believe it will thrive, so I think I'm at about Swetha 2019 right now.
