TechCrunch Covers Offersby.Me & Yes They Own The .Com

TechCrunch just covered another .Me site, this time its Offersby.Me which is a group buying site.

Interestingly the company also owns the .com version of the domain name, but is sticking with the branding of the site using the .Me extension.

According to TechCrunch: “”Adam Goldberg did quite a bit of research before soft-launching last spring. The ex-Oracle, ex-Google entrepreneur and ClearSaleing co-founder knows a thing or two about ad analytics and has taken this experience with him in his latest startup called, which is now officially “launched” and recently popped up on my radar.

“What is It’s a new website/app offering discounts for goods and services. And although it is currently only serving up offers in the company’s hometown of Columbus, Ohio (expansion is planned) it has some cool features that set it apart from behemoths like Groupon or LivingSocial.”

For all us domainers it should be noted that the site is branded Offersby.Me even though they also own the domain

Many think this type of .Me domain would be owned only for defensive purposes.

Its good to see the .com now being used just for defensive purposes

    That is great to see! We’ve seen some strong sales with our one-word .ME domains this year, for branding it’s one of the best TLDs out there, but as usual, you have to have solid names. Anyone buying junk or even B-level names in the extension will find very little liquidity.

    This just reaffirms why I’ve chosen to invest in the .me extension as a second to .com. I love how the startup community recognizes the potential in the extension and are developing the heck out of it. Every .me developed will bring more brand awareness and make .me domains that much more valuable.
