Nikolas Gough of Funk.me Intemedia Aps is launching a premium dotme auction and shopping site at http://www.Funk.me. With the incredible success of the Dot me domain which launched in July with record domain registration and racking up record sales in two previous auctions, Nikolas decided it was time to develop a me auction site for prospective buyers, investors and end-users to peruse and bid on premium me inventory.
Top premium me domains on the site include: Loan, Vegas, Sportsbet, Toons, Dubaiisland, Messageboard, Onlinewire.Me, Onlinelawyer.Me and many more. Dotme is poised to become one of the top domain extensions. Innovative companies such as Apple, Google, Microsoft, Deutsche Telekom and Digg have registered their brands and names with the dotme extension; moreover, since launching just a few months ago, there are already over 1.5 million dotme pages. Some of the dotme sites developed by individuals and firms include Istanbul.me, LasVegas.me, Kuwait.me, and utag.me.
The personalized web, blogging and microsites, and social media sites are setting the direction for the future of the Web. The Dotme extension is ideal to help navigate this course and utilize its potential as a branding tool for marketers. YouTube, MySpace, YouPorn, and blogging and message board sites such as LiveJournal, WordPress, Blogger, Twitter, TMZ, PerezHilton, PhotoBucket, and FORUM.DK are capturing enormous traffic and ad revenues, reflecting the value and growth of the personalization of the web and the new ME generation.
