Kevin Ham/Reinvent Not Involved in .CM any more

by Frank Michlick in Categories: ccTLDs

While many seem to bet on the potential traffic they may be able to get from .CM domains and the official .CM launch should be well underway today after being moved for several times, Kevin Ham and his company Reinvent have quietly retreated from the ccTLD and the wildcard causing all of the .CM domains to resolve has since been removed from the zonefiles.

Reinvent provided this official statement to DNN:

We are no longer involved in .CM wildcarding. There has been some suggestions that we could take advantage of the .CM wildcarding and register high traffic .CM domains. While we are in a position to take advantage of this, we have not registered one .CM domain. We no longer have any ties to Republic of Cameroon and .CM wildcarding. We wish both Cameroon and NETCOM the very best and much success.

Yes, .cm seems to be live. I have “won” (dubious?) my one domain. It shows in my control panel, but not in whois.

Bad sign?

Kevin’s original cm move was like putting gasoline on a fire. Leaving the entire domain industry and generic domain investors labeled as “cybersquatters”. :( I hope he has contributed a large part of that typo cash to ICA. Brilliant, but bad.
