Check Out These 5 Premium Domains
.ME is About to Release
.ME is an interesting domain extension because on its own it is a word: me. This has opened .ME up to clever uses such as About.me and Connect.me. This is obviously something that the .ME Registry is aware of because neither About.me nor Connect.me got their domain name by just registering it or buying it from someone else who had registered it. Instead, they both applied for their domains through the .ME Registry's Premium Domain Program.
According to .ME Registry CEO, Predraf Lesic, "The goal of the Premium Domain Program is to assign the very best premium domains to the best content. We are not interested in just selling the domain; we think the quality of service provided has a far better value for our company and for the end users. That's the main criteria we'll be looking for in our Premium Domain Program applicants."
As you can see the .ME Registry isn't just concerned with growing their domain; they're interested in growing the brand of their domain and you could be the next big .ME website to help them do just that. Starting May 10, 2013 you can apply for the following 5 premium .ME domains:
For.me Hire.me Around.me Fund.me Find.me
See something you like? All businesses, including start-ups, are eligible to apply. Applicants will be judged on their business plan, the quality of the service they will provide, and their references. All applications must be submitted by Saturday, June 15, 2013 at 5pm CET. You can find more information as well as the application on .ME's Premium Domain Program page.
