Montenegro’s ccTLD Records 250,000 Registrations
Montenegro’s country code top-level domain (ccTLD) .ME reached quarter of a million registrations, announced representatives of the .ME registry on May 20, 2009.
Supposedly, .ME is one of the fastest growing new ccTLD in the world, with 48,000 applications submitted for an online auction of .ME domains in late May 2009. The next round of auctions began on June 5, 2009.
Interested buyers can bid for domains, such as Copy.Me, Publish.Me, Catch.Me, Share.Me, Beer.Me, Trust.Me, Network.Me, Live.Me, Kick.Me, Face.Me, David.Me, Invite.Me, Teach.Me, Remind.Me, Gallery.Me.
Online marketing community members believe that .ME’s popularity is directly linked with the domain’s branding power. Domains such as YouAnd.Me, Hotels4.Me, Pizza4.Me and Tickets4.Me are easy to remember, more personalized and provide more user-generated content, explained Steve Sikes, the founder of the popular dating site YouAnd.Me.
