Itâ€™s Businessâ€¦ & Itâ€™s Personal with .ME
Popular ccTLD Helps Businesses Worldwide Make a Statement

PODGORICA, Montenegro--(BUSINESS WIRE)--It’s no wonder .ME has become so popular. The ccTLD – with the personal touch – is also a valuable call-to-action domain being leveraged by businesses and entrepreneurs worldwide.
Just this week, NameJet wrapped up an exclusive online auction of 15 premiere .ME domains. Names like Copy.Me, Remind.Me and Trust.Me showed tremendous popularity with bidders because of their tremendous call-to-action meanings. For instance, Teach.Me “sold” at $20,100, Invite.Me went for $12,000 and Publish.Me went for $11,100.
Online entrepreneurs like Tobin Harris agree. Harris created yUML.Me – a tool for business analysts, developers and bloggers.
"I love the dot-ME domain because it communicates a call to action,” said Harris, the Managing Director of Engine Room, the company that runs yUML.Me and which provides fast and simple ways to meet corporate objectives with software.
According to Harris, a call to action is just one of .ME’s selling points. “Dot-ME domains are also a seemingly untapped resource,” he said. “We found it quite easy to find attractive, short dot-ME domain names that can be posted in Twitter without needing a URL shortening service. As an added bonus, I think it's easy to remember, too."
This is exactly the kind of response to the extension that .ME Registry Executive Director Predrag Lesic loves to hear. “We are thrilled that companies like this one are finding multiple reasons to turn to dot-ME as an option for their businesses,” said Lesic. “For more than a year now, dot-ME has proven to be a phenomenal alternative to other TLDs which can be either more expensive or more difficult to obtain.”
The .ME domain is not just popular for the development of an online presence by traditional small businesses and progressive entrepreneurs; it is also a valuable home domain for the ever-growing blogger community.
According to a recent article on LaRioja.com, “Blogs are now a massive business…at their heart, they are all about the individual, all about me. Such an extension brings huge opportunities to continue getting the message across – that their site has something in it for the individual – rather than just a faceless name.”
