India is the world's largest democracy as well as the world's second most populated country. That means that websites on .IN can reach over 17% of the world's population! Unlike .CA, .IN domains are not restricted to those living in India, which means anyone can buy .IN. This is good news because the .IN domain extension is a great option for fun domain hacks such as get.in, log.in, and countme.in. Get .IN now for just $5.99 during our sale!
Then, get in to India with Lonely Planet's list of top things to do in India (including, of course, visiting the beautiful Taj Mahal pictured above).
.ME - Montenegro's ccTLD
Montenegro is a picturesque country with a beautiful coastline along the Adriatic Sea. The country is still relatively new, having been part of Yugoslavia before it was dissolved. After Montenegro became independent in 2006 it went from .YU to .ME, which is its current ccTLD. Luckily, Montenegro recognized the versatility of the .ME domain extension and opened it up to the global market, making it one of the best places to create your personal online space. .ME domain hacks are also popular, especially among start-ups including Spring.me and Scan.me. In addition, .ME domains can be used for custom short links - even we use dyna.me as ours! Whether you're looking for a fun domain name for your personal website or your business website, pick .ME! It's on sale for just $8.99 now!

.US - United States' ccTLD
The good ol' U.S. of A. is home to the Big Apple (New York City), the Windy City (Chicago), the state where "everything is bigger" (Texas), and even the late and great Frank Sinatra. It's one of the youngest world powers out there and includes 50 states, 1 capitol district, 6 territories and lots to see (check out our 50 reasons to visit the US)! The US is the home base of Dynadot, and .US is the online home base of United States websites, persons, organizations, and entities that wish to connect through the online world.
