KENIC Offering .ME.KE December Domain Promo

KENIC will be promoting its least successful Second level Domain(SLD) in December. Offer runs from 9th December to 31st December and will involve users getting  a domain name, a email and a personal website all for Ksh.999. Personal branding is the latest fad on the web nowadays with many opting for Montenegro's .me domain to create personal online profiles. I already have my .me and!

KENIC created the in 2009 for Kenyans interested in creating online personal profiles in .ke namespace so it's about ME and Kenya! In other words "I'm Kenyan and this profile is about ME." did not really catch on and so far only 241 domains(as of today) have been registered in the last two or so years. So maybe this promotion will get things moving. I hope the website is not KBO :)

Here is the marketing release from KENIC:
