  • Good morning, everyone! My name is Masa Djikanovic and I work for .ME – which is the company that manages the .ME domain name space. What do we do? Well, every .ME domain name in the world is registered through us, and before you battle it out, we’d like to tell you a little bit about why .ME could be a good match for YOU!
  • If you think about domain names in general, regardless of what we end up using them for, each and every one is originally designed to communicate a certain message. For instance, .com stands for a company, .org for organization, .mobi for mobile, and then there are country code domains  you use if you’re targeting only that country's market. [PAUSE] Despite being a ccTLD, .ME is used worldwide for all these reasons! 
  • Why? Because .ME communicates the most important message today – it’s PERSONAL . Think about it - with the emergence of social networks, micro-blogging, geo-location tools and soaring mobile usage, the Internet is becoming a very personal place, whether we like it or not. This is where .ME steps in, since it is the only extension in the market that sends a personal message directly in the URL . What .ME does is making personal "personalized".
  • And by this, I don’t refer only to individual hubs, websites or splash pages with yourname.me or yourfirstnamelastname.me as the URL address …
  • … though those are pretty cool, too.
  • I‘m talking about the call-to-action domains. The most common phrases used for call-to-action are click here, do this, check it out – basically, all those things your mother used to tell you when you were a kid. The .ME extension reinvents this concept of call-to-action by making it more memorable than ever . This can be easily achieved with the combination of English verbs and the ME word.
  • And when I say this, I mainly refer to domains like help.me, find.me, hire.me, fund.me and also j oin.me , connect.me, scan.me, oust.me .

  • What we’re also seeing being registered lately are made-up verbs that communicate call-to-action like blip.me , tungle.me, kiip.me, mobify.me and so on.

  • We’re also quite fond of nouns, and so is TI.ME and NEWS.ME, a great iPhone and iPad app that lets you gather stories shared by your friends.

  • Today we have over 630 000 domains in the Registry and a huge portion of them is call-to-action, because in the internet era over-saturated with information, businesses want you to remember them .
  • This guy seems to be going for the same thing, but we’d recommend getting a .ME domain instead, it’s way cheaper and much less painful, I’d imagine.
  • I do hope that for the service, or the next killer app you’ll develop, you’ll pick a memorable domain. You don’t have to pick .ME, but it should be something that we won't forget easily. If you do want to give the .me domain a shot, you can email me and get one for free. For more information about .ME, please visit www.domain.me and contact us, we’d be happy to help and answer any questions. Oh and if you want to find out more about me – the person, please visit my About.me page.
  • Have fun, play nice, and enjoy the beer and pizza – both are on .ME.
