    Did you know the “top food takeout app” in China operates on a .ME domain name? According to Seeking Alpha, the company,, raised money in May of last year at a valuation of “between $5.5 billion to $6 billion.” The company made news today when it was announced that Alibaba bought out Baidu and other investors that own the company. Crunchbase shows that the company raised over $3 billion in funding.

    As you are likely aware by now, the .ME domain name extension is the ccTLD for the country of Montenegro. Interestingly, it does not look like owns the typo domain name. It does own the ccTLD for the Chinese market, but surprisingly, the domain name does not seem to resolve. It looks like someone else owns, although the company’s branding always seems to include the domain name extension in it.
