.Cm auctions should finally start today at NameJet.
After many delays, NameJet will begin auctions today for .cm domain names.
NameJet General Manager Steve Brown informed Domain Name Wire this morning that the sunrise and single pre-order .cm domains have now been added to the zone. Therefore, NameJet will proceed as planned with the auctions that will begin later today and close between Monday August 31st and Monday September 14th.
General registrations for .cm continue to be delayed, much to the chagrin of a number of people lined up to register them.
.Cm is the country code domain name for Cameroon. The domain was made famous thanks to a deal struck by Kevin Ham and the government of Cameroon to “wildcard” any .cm domain that didn’t resolve and forward it to a parked page. This year Cameroon is opening .cm for general registration. The launch has been mired in controversy because .cm is a common typo of .com and due to technical problems at the .cm registry.
