Now is the Time for .ME –– Landrush Underway
Public Able to Register for Personalized Web Space

PODGORICA, Montenegro--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The .ME Registry Landrush is underway, which means for the first time anyone can apply for names with the new .ME domain name extension. The Landrush process began Friday and is a 20-day period in which the public can "put a stake in the ground" for .ME names they want to register.

The registry has been accepting .ME applications since May for trademark registrations.

“We’ve seen tremendous interest in .ME from every corner of the globe,” said Predrag Lesic, the registry’s executive director. “The .ME extension clearly offers opportunities to develop catchy phrases and add personality to your Web presence – including personal sites as well as business applications associated with products, brands and services. Now is the time to get in on the ground floor with a great name.”

More than 70 registrars from all over the world are already offering .ME registration. Open Registration is slated for July 17, initiating on a first-come, first-served basis. Two-year minimums are required on all .ME domain names registered during the Landrush and initial Open Registration periods. Landrush domain names receiving more than one application will go to an auction process.

.ME schedule:

June 6 to June 26: Landrush. This is the first opportunity for the public at large to apply. Anyone who doesn’t have a trademark, but is interested in a specific .ME domain, can apply during this period. This is also when Sunrise challenges commence.
June 26 to July 15: Quiet Period. During this time, the registry is closed to registrars. Names for which there was only one application during the Landrush Period are allocated. Landrush auctions will begin for names that received multiple applications.
July 17: Open Registration. Domain names are registered on a first-come, first-served basis.
For more information, or to apply to be a .ME Registrar, visit: www.Domain.ME.

Actually I have tried to get some and will definitely try to get more.

I liked things like invent.me , walk.me, deliver.me.

All bradable and half the size of .asia. ;)

I find .me to be a good domain for domainers, it's short and sweet.

I'm going to wait til landrush is over and see what's left, I can't be bothered to compete! I think anything clever like the examples above will have lots of competition.

.ME for english speakers could end up being like .NU is for the Swedes.

We should. I will volunteer to be the hiring Manager.

Bob has GD girls so
Adam should have DNF girls.

If the wife asked just tell her it is strictly 'business'.

Just a shame it is so damn expensive and all the best names are creamed off !! I think that only way that this will NOT go same way as .eu is if price is reduced.
