Easyspace, one of the largest web hosting and domain name
providers in the UK, has added the highly anticipated .me domain
extension to its portfolio.
The rollout of the .me extension began back in March 2008, going
through its Sunrise and Land Rush periods from May onwards before being
officially launched for open registrations on Thursday 17th July on a
first come first serve basis.
While the .me domain has been assigned as a Country Code Top Level
Domain (ccTLD) for Montenegro, it's expected that its popularity will
stretch to include use on personal websites and as a popular extension
for marketing activities across the globe.
Easyspace is one of only a handful of UK based registrars already
selling .me domain names and, inline with the requirements of the .me
registry, domains can be registered for a minimum 2 year up to a
maximum 10 year period.
"We've had a number of new extension launches in the recent past,
including the likes of .mobi, and .eu, but most have come with some
registration restrictions, such as location for .eu. With .me being
open to absolutely everyone on a first come first serve, and with its
obvious potential for personal users and marketing campaigns, I expect
that its popularity will only grow in strength over the coming months."
commented Errol Vanderhorst, Sales and Marketing Director for Easyspace.
Easyspace currently offers all the popular domain extensions such as
.com, .co.uk, .info, .eu, org and .net and more through its website, as
well as an extensive selection of Country Code Domain names.
