Hmm… do you Bob?
At 11 am EST, Go Daddy domain registrar opened their checking account to receive the low low price of $19.99/yr, so you can be the proud owner of “Web Site Title”.ME.
The flood gates opened, and Go Daddy experienced a tremendous number of domain purchases, but the system experienced unfortunate turbulence resulting in such problems as popular registrations like aweso.me being issued to as many as 9 registrants (as seen on Twitter.com).
Go Daddy has taken immediate action, but is unfortunately only offering those denied the mistakenly duplicate registrations a refund.
It will be interesting to see how much aweso.me auctions for, and how peeved the refunded customers will be.
I will not be purchasing ScottLClark.ME, but certainly you are more than welcome to borrow my name if you would like.
