Efforts to sell the domain with the name of the president of the republic, H.E. Ali Abdullah Saleh (, are underway at all levels. The CEO of the site, Sofia Janselme sent Yemen Times, along with several other Yemen-related websites , emails asking about who may be interested in buying the site with the president’s name, starting from $100,000.
She claims that she has been in contact with high ranking officials who are thinking of buying the name for more than this amount. “It would be a clever move by a businessman who wants to get closer to the president by constructing a website and using it for the president’s publicity and promotion of his achievements, personality, etc.”
