How’s your luck in registering the newest .my domain names? Did you miss out yesterday when the domain name registration was open to the public? Looks like there was such a huge rush to register .my domain names when it was opened, at 10am when I checked most good and short domain names were already taken.

These snapped like hot cake domain names include Ping.my which I actually intended to register. A quick check reveals this might be registered by those folks at Advertlets.com.

Ping

Advertlets.com’s logo is there. Perhaps they are planning to come up with a blog ping service or search engine. Sounds relevant to their core business right now which is blogs advertising.

One thing I have questions is. Is it worthwhile to spend the money to reserve those domain names if you do not have plan to develop them into a website? Two.my is already grabbed by someone, which Two.com.my is still available for registration. How come?

Let’s take a look at a list of the most expensive domain names. Sorry no .com.my and .my yet.

Sex.com
$11 – $14 million (disputed reports), January 19th 2006

Fund.com
$10 million, March 11 2008

Porn.com
$9.5 million, 2007

Business.com
$7.5 million, 1999

Diamond.com
$7.5 million

Beer.com
$7 million

AsSeenOnTv.com
$5.1 million, January 2000

Seo.com
$5 million

Shop.com
$3.5 million

Altavista.com
$3.3 million

Creditcheck.com
$3 million

Anyway, I also didn’t give up after learning that most good names were already taken up. I fast fast registered a couple of .my domain names… right now, still planning and will soon develop those sites. Stay tuned.

Josh Lim, how much do you wanna sell Ping.my to me? 🙂
