Montenegro’s Domain .ME to Completely Replace Former Domain CG.YU

Sep 25 2009 - 16:15

As of September 30, 2009, Montenegro’s former domain CG.YU will no longer be in use. Before September 30th, all CG.YU users will need to change their e-mails and web-servers into .ME, the official country code assigned to Montenegro by the International Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). If current CG.YU domain users do not switch to .ME before the deadline, they will not be able to access their emails and web servers.

While the CG.YU days are numbered, the new Montenegrin domain .ME continues to grow rapidly. Currently, the domain has more than 270,000 applications, out of which 79 % are active websites.

In May 2009, .ME had 250,000 applications and was supposedly one of the fastest growing country code domains in the world, which was attributed to its great compatibility with English words.

With domain names such as Trust.ME, Teach.ME, Share.ME, Remind.ME, this country code domain attracted many businesses and advertisers because of its unique online marketing power.
