Dot .ME Domain Names Auction

Moniker® and SnapNames®, both Oversee.net companies, will host an online auction from May 4-11, placing some of the best call-to-action .ME domains up for bid.

“Our personal names auction earlier this month allowed people around the world to snatch up their first or last name attached to a dot-ME domain,” stated Predrag Lesic, Executive Director of the .ME Registry. “On the heels of that auction, we are now working with Moniker to provide global bidders with some of the most clever call-to-action dot-ME domains available.”

Moniker was the first auctioneer of premium .ME domain names and holds the record for top sales, including Date.Me, which sold at $70,000, and Ask.Me at $20,000. This online auction will be incorporated exclusively into the company’s popular Showcase Auction series via the SnapNames.com platform.

The auction begins May 4 at Noon ET and ends May 11 at 3:15 p.m. ET. Bidding information can be found at: http://showcase.snapnames.com/upcoming-auctions. Some of the .ME domains up for auction include:

















“The best thing about dot-ME domains is that, unlike any other domain extension, they combine one word with dot-ME to deliver a direct message to web site and domain visitors,” said Monte Cahn, founder of Moniker.com. “Directing Internet users to your site while branding with two simple words is a unique and valuable marketing tool for anyone trying to get attention in a world filled with over 192 million registered1 domain names.”
