TechCrunch Covers Offersby.Me & Yes They Own The .Com
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 OffersBy.me 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 OffersBy.me, which is now officially “launched” and recently popped up on my radar.
“What is OffersBy.me? 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 OffersByMe.com
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
