Welcoming 2010 with my new .ME!

date.me, love.me, hug.me... insure.me, fix.me, treat.me... aren't these just aweso.me?

But, without tens of thousands of dollars, you're a bit too late as over quarter of a million of these new .me domains have been snapped away in less than eighteen months since this this new top-level domain was opened to public registration.

But, there are many other names up to hundreds of thousands more out there for you to find and treasure. (note that there have been tens of millions registrations for the other TLDs like .com, .net, .info, .de, .uk, .cn etc.).

We have a special offer for you to welcome 2010... Read on until the end!

What can you do with ?

.Me is a true phenomenon among TLDs. With its unforgettable meaning and limitless word combination possibilities, .Me gives a truly personal tone to your domain name. If you are looking for a name that speaks for itself .Me is your best choice. Let .Me speak for your online business or personal blog.

.Me potential is enormous and it simply asks for you to be creative and coin the name that suits you best. If you have a great, original idea for a domain name, register .Me before it’s taken.

Why .ME

Introduction

Because .ME is about YOU! .ME has incredible potential for Internet users world-wide. Think about it. With a .ME domain, the Internet will, quite simply, be all about YOU. For the first time in Internet history, domain names are essentially personal.

.ME is expected to be utilized as both a personalized Web address and as a catchy business marketing tool around the world, initially in English followed by localized and standards compliant International Domain Names in, for example, Spanish, Italian, and Montenegrin.

.ME domains, with their universal appeal, are expected to be in high demand. So some “premium” names – including verb-oriented domains, such as “Contact.ME,” “Drive.ME” or “Fly.ME,” – will be held back for auction after Open Registration. We will have more information available on premium auctions in the months to come.




.ME is:

great for personalized domains, such as:
“John.me”, “Bob.me”, “Mary.me”. These could, for example, be used for your own blog or other personal website

fantastic for a call-to-action domain:
e.g. “lookat.me”, “WillYouDate.me”, “Insure.me”, “Shopfor.me”, “ChatWith.ME”, etc.

perfect for social networking:
e.g. “TheWorldof.ME”

Catchy ccTLD Sells for Big Bucks and Makes Bold Branding Statements

PODGORICA, Montenegro – Oct. 21, 2009 – The .ME Registry is celebrating significant success in its most recent online auction. NameJet® auctioned off 15 premium .ME domains between Sept. 25 and Oct. 2. The results certainly suggest .ME is a popular and valuable commodity in the world of domain extensions. Among the biggest sellers, Friend.Me sold for $21,000 and Host.Me sold for $15,200.

The popularity and increasing value of the .ME extension is not surprising when you take a closer look at how people and businesses around the world are using this ccTLD to send a message on the Web.

WhyHire.Me is a Web site, launched in North America, to help students and graduates get noticed by potential employers. A college professor and two software professionals developed the site. Now, several universities are using the portal and curriculum to teach students about new media and online personal branding.

“As an educator and brand marketer, I seek out the clearest possible message,” says Patti Church, one of the co-founders of WhyHire.Me. "No one can dispute the value and clarity of what our brand name communicates or what dot-ME offers our students and subscribers who use it to build their own online brand."

If previous years have been about .YU and the others - .COM, .ORG, .INFO, .BIZ, .TV, .MOBI, .US etc., 2010 is about .ME, .ME, and ME!
The dot-ME top level domain replaced the dot-YU (Yugoslavia) domain previously used by Serbia and Montenegro. In addition to declaring .me independent of .yu, a new .rs domain is to be deployed for Serbian use. (Wikipedia, 2009)

1oasis is kickstarting 2010 with our 3-month promotion on .ME:
instant price drop of at least one-third (over 35%), or up to 50% compared to elsewhere, to just RM65 or US$18.99 for your full entry year.

Domain name theft made it on MaximumPC's Most Important Tech Event List at #99

New Jersey Resident First to Be Arrested for Domain Name Theft

On August 3, Daniel Goncalves, a 25-year-old computer technician, allegedly hacked an email account, stole login information, and falsified PayPal transaction records in an elaborate scheme to claim ownership of P2P.com, a domain valued at $160,000.

This arrest marks the first for domain theft, which has been difficult to prosecute because of the technical and legal complexities of the domain registrar system. Unfortunately for Goncalves, the owner of P2P.com was a former prosecutor for the Justice Department with a background in Internet payment processing.

China is coming...

We are glad to announce the launch of .CN - the most popular and fastest growing ccTLD in the world.

The .CN Domain extension has seen an exemplary growth since its launch throughout the world. Earlier this year, .CN crossed over 13 million registrations to become the second most registered Domain extension after .COM. (ahead of .NET!).

You can begin registering your desired .CN Domains from 18th August 2009 onwards. Furthermore, these domain extensions will be available at a special introductory price of RM50 on Registrations, Renewals as well as Transfer-Ins - compared to RM100-120 (more than TWICE) elsewhere!

*Prices checked as of 13 AUG 2009.

If you're wondering if .CN domains are being actively traded at all, here are a few recent aftermarket sales in a recent week (July 27 - Aug 2, 2009) - data from Sedo (see more news below):-
  1. Mascus.cn $4,830
  2. weinimport.cn $1,440
  3. bitdefender.cn $1,440
In the case of "bitdefender.cn", likely in reference to a popular antivirus software, it seems to be not bad at all for a less than 2-year domain domain to fetch nearly 100 times its original registration cost.

So, start planning now for that domain to take advantage of lucrative, fast-growing China market - world's most populous nation, with biggest number of Internet users to-date! While one may not be interested in doing business in China now, it could be wise to protect one's brand today, and SAVE, should the decision to expand/enter into China arise several years from now.

DOUBLE BONUS: Get 20% rebate (maximum RM52) for .CN domains and all other products throughout 1oasis.net store (for items not marked on sale), during Merdeka Mega Sale Month until 31 AUG 2009.


Also, in addition to recently made available Free DNS, Domain FORWARDING is also now FREE, so you can start using all domains immediately.

BTW, domains for other highly populous nations, .IN and .UK, as well as .MOBI and .INFO are still on sale - from just RM20!
