Domain hacks get their revenge day

As announced at Mike Berkens’s blog, the sales price of Meet.me wasn’t a surprise; what’s surprising is that a so-called “domain hack” wasn’t picked up from the Montenegrin registry at a higher price.

Domain hacks are combinations of keyword+TLD to form a word or even a phrase.

Some are obvious: Love.me, Fuck.it

Others require more creativity: Blo.gs, Doma.in, Poe.ms

Some others have a meaning in another language: Agapa.me (love me in Greek.)

Lastly, there are some that are outright confusing: Bit.ly

The $450k sale of Meet.me is revenge day for those that support the usefulness and value of domain hacks.
