Why is upload.mn getting so many bids? Am I missing something…

upload-mn

So I was looking at expiring domain names on Park.io and noticed that Upload.mn had 14 bids and was currently at $3,600. I did a double take – did I miss something? When did .MN become a hot extension?

Looking at NameBio I can  see records for six .MN sales:

While I’m sure there are more .MN sales out there, upload.mn could end up being the highest reported sale to-date…unless you know of some well known .MN sales that I’m missing. All this being said I have to say this is a bit of a head scratcher and I’m interested to see what Upload.mn ends up selling for.

What do you think? Why is there so much interest in upload.mn?

    Just another bidder that wants to waste money on park.io -_-

    I don’t know if there’s any more to it than Mongolia locals showing interest.

    I’m from Canada and you can bet that Upload.ca would have fetched much higher asking prices than $3600 this is currently sitting at. Not because .ca is “hot” but because there are 36+ million Canadians.

    Mongolia shows 3M population and 1M net connected. It just takes a few folks interested in a very strong keyword domain, in their own country’s extension to get the bidding going. (And then others jump in because they think it’s a small silver mine they just discovered).

    But I’d wager that the real interest just stems from Mongolia itself.

    In Hungary (I’m also Hungarian), upload.hu would also command comparable prices.

    I bought a .nu domain. Paid much more for it than this asking price — and worth much more to me than what I paid for it. 🙂

    2 reasons,
    1) strong keyword to the left of the dot
    2) its a cctld and not a worth less new gtld.

    Notice i said worth less and not worthless:)

    That’s a traffic domain but, yes, it definitely is overpriced!
