GoDaddy released the .me domain extension to purchase at 11am ET today. So far it has been a big fail for them. I was the proud owner of the.me for a total of 1 hour and 6 minutes before I got an email from GoDaddy letting me know that I am not the owner anymore. According to a Mashable post, on Twitter there are about 7 or 8 owners of aweso.me. It might be a while before this is all figured out, so it will be interesting to see what GoDaddy does instead of here is a refund, sorry. I already had a whole business plan in place.
I am all excited when I get this email:
One hour and six minutes later I am sad because I get this:
Did anyone else run into this? Have you received anymore information from GoDaddy about what is going on?
