So you're planning a trip to beautiful Montenegro, the home of the .ME domain. But where do you start? Well, at the beach of course! Montenegro features 293 km (182 miles) of coastline along the sapphire blue of the Adriatic Sea. There are over 120 beaches to choose from with varying styles from sand to pebbles. The Budva Riviera, in particular, has over 25 beaches and is a favorite tourist destination. In fact Sveti Stefan, a town on the Budva Riviera, was featured on the cover of National Geographic's 25th Anniversary Edition of Traveler Magazine. The magazine listed Montenegro among the "50 Places of a Lifetime."
But Montenegro is more than just beaches. The word "Montenegro" means "Black Mountain" in Montenegrin and much of the country features a mountainous terrain. Zabljak is the largest town on Durmitor Mountain and the center of Montenegro's winter tourism. The town itself is located 1,450 m (4,757 ft) above sea level and is close to Crno Jezero, or "Black Lake," the biggest (and said to be most beautiful) glacier lake on Durmitor Mountain.
A must see on your visit to Montenegro is the Tara River Canyon. The canyon is located in Durmitor National Park, a World Heritage Site, and the canyon itself is a tentative World Heritage Site. At its deepest, it is 1,300 m (4265 ft), making it the deepest river canyon in Europe and it's a great place to go river rafting if you're up for the adventure.
Montenegro has a lot to offer, but if you can't actually make it over there for travel, Montenegro can still offer you something that doesn't even require you to leave your computer chair: your own .ME domain name. After Montenegro was assigned the .ME domain in 2007, the government decided to open it up to the world because of it's potential appeal – after all .ME is all about YOU!
A .ME domain is the perfect extension for personal websites and blogs. Imagine youname.me as your home on the Internet. And unlike .COM, which surpassed 100 million registrations in 2011, .ME domains offer you a unique opportunity to get the domain you really want. Plus with a better domain name, your website will be easier for friends, family, and more to find.
But .ME domains aren't just for person use – they're great for businesses too! Registering your .ME domain will not only protect your brand (see our last post on "Things to Consider When You Register a New Domain Name"), but it also offers you a unique opportunity to personalize your brand. A .ME domain is a great compliment your main website.
Whether you're a business or an individual, you can have fun with your .ME domain name – by registering names like "make.me" or "try.me." You can make your .ME domain into a fun marketing tool with names like "chatwith.me" or "willyoudate.me." And you'll have even more fun because .ME domains are only $8.99 for 1 year registrations during our .ME domain sale! So what are you waiting for?
