Great success of me-domains

(PresseBox) (Cologne , ) The Registry of me-domains has announced already in August 2008 it has registered more than 100,000 domain names. This milestone has come a little more than two weeks after opening for live, real-time registrations by the general public and less than four months after opening its doors.

“We believe the huge demand for .ME reflects the public’s interest in having a personal connection with the Web,” said Predrag Lesic, the registry’s executive director. “From interesting topics, to organization names, to brands, .ME sites give personality to the content on the Web sites associated with them.”

The me-domains have seen its greatest interest among English speaking countries including the United States (71%), the United Kingdom (6%), Canada (4%), and Australia (2%).


“The number of individuals participating in .ME auctions, combined with the high values of the sales indicates brand owners and investors clearly understand the domain’s potential,” added Lesic. “We are pleased by this success since proceeds from the auctions go to further Internet development in Montenegro.”

A newletter claims: "Since its launch in July, .me has become the domain darling. With high sales at auctions, and with the first closed .mE auction reaching over $2 million in sales, .me has been breaking world records for registrations. Over 1 million .me web pages have already been developed. And although major companies, which usually require more time to develop a web strategy, haven't launched their .me sites yet, netizens worldwide have developed their own .me sites."
