According to their FAQ they've been live since July 2006.

Looking at the price they're charging I don't think I'll be bothering with this one either.

Best known is url shortening service tr.im, but you are right they seem pricey.

Hmmm...I reckon I was looking at their names more than 6-7+ years ago when I was thinking of moving there.

Understandably all the names I wanted were available however I never bothered plus, as noted, they are not the most cost effective!

I was suprised to see country names available. such as Iraq.im and ...

I searched several popular terms which almost all were available.

It shows how interested people are in this extension.;)

Well they've only about 7K .im domains registered and it is essentially a repurposed ccTLD. A lot of domainers who stumble across it seem to think that it has the capability to be the next big thing. However the ccTLD domaining world is far more cutthroat than the .com world that most are used to and if you don't do your research, you will lose a lot more money than with .com speculation.
