Three character domain in the spotlight.
Sedo’s monthly Great Domains auction ends tomorrow, and a three character domain in the auction is attracting a lot of attention.
MEC.com is up to $41,000 with its reserve met. Four different bidders are in on the action. There are a number of companies and acronyms for MEC, and the domain name appears to get substantial traffic. It was just parked on March 18, and Sedo’s stats show over 3,000 visitors to the domain name since then.
Other three character domain names that have met their reserves include bsh.com and lmd.com.
Ski.ch — a Switzerland country code domain name — has met its reserve at 15,500 EUR with 22 bids.
Keep an eye on Software.de. At 50,000 EUR, it’s below its reserve range of 100,000-250,000 EUR, but I expect some action on this domain.
Here are a few lower priced domain names that may be worth bidding on:
Trusting.com – currently $950 with reserve met
Granted.com – reserve is under $1,000
Points.org – reserve met and only $161 so far.
It’s a 3 letter rather than a 3 character in domain land.
“Mec” also means “guy/boyfriend” in French… would make a nice name for a general portal dedicated to men for instance.
I don’t think it plays a big role here but who knows, after all a big French company bought be.com some monthes ago to build a portal dedicated to women, as well as a print magazine called “BE”.

Remy, wasn't this the domain owned by Kevin Ham ?
Actually I don’t know who owned this domain before, but when I noticed that Lagardère launched a website under be.com, I was pretty sure they bought it on the secondary market. Although this was confirmed by their PR department, they wouldn’t tell anything about the seller nor the buying price.
Anyone here 100% sure this domain belonged to Dr Kevin Ham?
Yup, it was owned by Kevin Ham. Anybody want to guess the price? I would think 7 figures USD.
