Pick .ME! The Perfect Domain for Your Blog!
If you are planning to start your own blog or if you already have, obtaining a domain name for your blog is essential. Finding the name you want in a .COM domain can be difficult, which is why we encourage you to look for your perfect blog domain name in a .ME! The .ME domain is great for bloggers because it's a more personal domain that is all about you. Another plus - you'll find a lot more options with .ME domain names, so you won't have to settle for a name that you don't really want. And best of all, .ME domains are on sale for just $8.99 for new 1 year registrations! Our $8.99 .ME domain sale ends 12/31/12 23:59 PDT, so get your .ME domain name today!
If you're just starting out with your blog, you'll need to think about what topics you want to focus on in your blog. This will help you come up with an appropriate domain name. If you don't see your first option available, get creative - even making slight variations to the words you're typing in can help you find a great available domain name. You can also use our suggestion tool, which will automatically show up at the bottom of our domain name search.
If you already have a blog started, you probably already have a specific name for it as well, which may or may not be available. Either way keep in mind the length of your domain - shorter tends to be better (though if you are already known by your longer name go for it). You may have to get creative here too, but a great alternative is always registering yourname.me or even yournamesblog.me.
Once you've got your perfect .ME domain name for your blog, you can set up domain forwarding or stealth forwarding to redirect your domain name to your blog. If you use Blogger, you can set up your domain with Blogger in an easy two step process and for WordPress, you can map your WordPress.com blog to your domain.
