Those interested in getting a .ME domain name can do so after ICANN opens up .ME domain registration. The registration for .ME domains began in May, where trademark owners were permitted to register their own names early. The landrush period began in June, in which any interested party can submit a domain application without restrictions.
According to the .ME Registry, more than 30,000 domains have been registered, and auctions for domains with multiple bids are now taking place. Successfully completed open registrations will enable domain owners to launch their .ME Web sites immediately after registration opens publicly tomorrow.
Auctions are expected for domains that will likely be considered high value, with Love.Me, Buy.Me, Contact.ME, Drive.ME, and Date.me, and other verbs you can conceivably do to “.me,” at the top of the list. The open registration period makes it possible for anyone to get any domain name on a first-come, first-served basis.
