Sedo Announces Inaugural .ME Auction Featuring 35 of the Most Desirable .ME Domains

Company’s New Partnership with the .ME Registry Brings Premium Names like Join.ME, Locate.ME, Pick.ME and Rock.ME to the Marketplace

March 4, 2009; 05:31 AM

CAMBRIDGE, Mass., March 2, 2009– Sedo, the leading online marketplace for buying and selling domain names, today announced that it will hold an auction of 35 of the most desirable .ME domain names through a new partnership with the .ME registry.  The auction at will run from 1 p.m. EST on March 26, 2009 to 1 p.m. EST on April 2, 2009.

As one of the first secondary domain marketplaces to sell and auction .ME domain names, Sedo was chosen by the .ME Registry for this industry-first auction because of the company’s reputation as the leading online marketplace for trading premium domains.  Sedo’s global reach was also a huge advantage for auctioning off six highly sought after non-English language .ME addresses.

“Sedo’s auction provides an incredible opportunity for businesses and individuals looking for memorable and meaningful domain names.  The dot-ME extension calls web visitors to action with commonly used phrases such as Remember.ME or Sell.ME,” said Jeremiah Johnston, chief operating officer and general counsel,  “Whether branding a new product or showcasing your hobby online, dot-ME domain names are a perfect match for today’s focus on the individual, and the rapid growth of registrations is proof.”

Introduced in June 2008, .ME domain names have quickly grown to over 200,000 registrations due to their unique ability to personalize websites to match today’s social media culture and offer “call-to-action” names like Pay.ME, Promote.ME, or Support.ME, all of which are featured in the Sedo auction.

“As demand for dot-ME registrations and secondary sales continues to grow, we look forward to working with the .ME Registry in the future to continue to help organizations and individuals acquire the ideal dot-ME domain to achieve their desired goals,” said Johnston.
