IM can mean a lot of things. This September it means a $6.00 domain with .im domains on promo.
Originally delegated as the country-code TLD for the Isle of Man, if it hasn't necessarily had a tremendous market on its home island, .im has been keen to capitalize on its position as an especially useful couple of letters.
Besides the large number of words ending in im, IM also means "instant messenger" for those who remember the internet circa 2005. Not only that .im is the perfect TLD for when you do you. Nothing says, "I am what I am," like .im.
And this April, .im is on sale, from April 1 through April 30, for $6.00 for the first year and the usual $20.00 after that*.

It’s a topsy-turvy economic world and while we wish exchange rates would just stay the same forever (economic consequences of that aside), unfortunately that’s not the case.
Since Gandi does have to pay registries generally in the currency of the country they are located in, exchange rates are a factor in the pricing of our domains in any particular currency.
And due to recent fluctuations in currency exchange rates, we’ve had to make some adjustments to some of the rates of our TLDs. We wanted to let you know so you wouldn’t be surprised.
The good news is, most of the affected TLDs haven’t had any rate changes in the past three years.
In any case, starting 1 March 2016, most extensions registered by Centralnic will experience a price increase of 10% on prices IN EUROS (EUR) ONLY on all rate scales for all operations. The TLDs affected are the following:
Also on 1 March, .co, .hn, .ht, .je, .ms, .sx, .vc, .im, .tl, and .tc will be going up as well, also by 10% and on all operations and rate scales. This increase applies to EUROS (EUR) but also to TAIWAN DOLLARS (TWD) as well.
On 1 March, 2016, prices on .gg will increase by 5% on all operations at all rates in EUROS (EUR) ONLY.
