.ME Domains Hit Quarter-Million Milestone

Posted by at 12:25 pm on May 20, 2009

The .ME Registry announced today its popular ccTLD extension has hit 250,000 domains registered. Montenegro’s .ME Registry has seen significant growth since it launched the domain extension worldwide just over one year ago. In fact, .ME is the fastest growing new ccTLD.

JamesCrocker.Me, registered through GoDaddy.com, was the name which pushed the Registry’s portfolio to the quarter-million milestone.

The .ME domain extension has proven to be incredibly popular worldwide. More than 48,000 applications were received to participate in the current online auction of .ME domains which ends in just a few days. The next online auction, hosted by NameJet.com, is scheduled to begin June 5.

Many in the online marketing community believe .ME’s popularity directly correlates to the domain’s branding power. “Dot-ME is extremely suitable for consumer brands,” notes Mark Kychma of Brands-and-Jingles, a marketing firm based in the United Kingdom, the Netherlands and Ukraine. His company owns hundreds of .ME domains. “Try to forget brands like Hotels4.Me, Pizza4.Me and Tickets4.Me-¦ there is a 99 percent chance you will not,” adds Kychma. “Tell your friends about Love.Me, Fancy.Me, Unlock.Me and they will remember them for ages.”
