Ni.ke hits the Kshs 1 billion (or $9.7m) mark in the premium domain auction of the .ke second level domain launch (Warning: This could be #FakeNews :-) )

It was more of the trade mark Nike

Is it a cyber squatter or nike that won the bid?

Regards,

Alex

Ni.ke hits the Kshs 1 billion (or $9.7m) mark in the premium domain auction of the .ke second level domain launch. This is probably an all time record of any ccTLD (Country Code Second Level Domain).

For a minute I thought this was an error. And it could still be.. ๐Ÿ™‚

auction.kenic.or.ke/item/19203406/nike

If this turns out to be true it would be a world record and focus the world alot more on Kenya.. Hold on! We are onto a wild ride! ๐Ÿ™‚

โ€‹At the very least this is great PR and a Marketing Coup.

@Abdalla and Team – Well done for putting KENIC on the map!
