On Sept 18th the Dot CM domains went live to the public. Right now anyone can register a DOT CM domain. Of course, they are costly at about $105 per year. I picked up two domains, one was just a personal thing. I got Dylan.CM because that is my first name.
Lots of people are picking these up for typos if you look at Facebook.cm or MySpace.cm they seem to go to some sort of CPA offer.
I think I’ll setup some email on Dylan.cm and forward it to my technologyinsanity address. When talking to people, it would be a lot easier to give out. Other than that, I might setup some kind of web page on it, but right now it just forwards to TechnologyInsanity. It’s kind of hard to get Dylan dot anything they seem to be going for over $1K for most other domains. I don’t know if Dylan dot cm is worth above $105, but it’s possible.
You might be able to still snag some good ones, mainly because people are afraid of buying this ccTLD, plus the registration fee is quite high.
However, there was quite a few dot cm domains that fetched a high price, check this out: Dot CM Auctions. (however, these prices are VERY low in comparison of what the dot com versions would go for.. I think Sex.com would go for millions.)
If you’re wondering why it is dot CM, it stands for the African country Cameroon.
