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 :-) )

That can be part of the agreement. This domain is too valuable to just โ€˜parkโ€™ it. I see no reason why this canโ€™t done.

I am with @Phares on this. I don’t think co.ke can be sold. If I bought it, I could then mess up all the .co.ke domains by just creating them as a subdomain of my co.ke domain – unless it is clearly stated that whoever buys co.ke is PROHIBITED from creating any subdomains on this domain.

Not really. (.co.ke) is what is currently in use. KeNIC introduced a second level system which is (.ke) and the rules are clear. You can own any domain with one or more letters before the (.ke).

So where I stand (or sit) ๐Ÿ™‚ the co.ke domain is fair game.. I think KeNIC just needs to explain to the community why they are hoarding this billion dollar domain. ๐Ÿ™‚

I don’t think co.ke could be sold; everything .co.ke would have to be a subdomain of whoever owns co.ke, if KE had started with .com.ke we may have been able to do this. Perhaps I’m misinformed but it would be a technical nightmare

No one uses co.ke, I would propose to @Abdalla to propose to sell the TLD (on condition that kenic manages it), and give the DNS / MX & some sub domains to Coca Cola for the domain. I bet they would be happy to spend a few dimes to boost KENIC.

I had to go in several times to confirm the number.. However, the proof of the pudding is in the eating.. Let’s see who plonks that kind of money..

Some interesting domains are hitting respectable numbers.. Ranging from 100k to 500k..This is real..

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!
