.ME is fun, personal and ABOUT YOU! Whether it is about launching a business or a personal website, word combinations with .ME domains make your brand or online identity truly unique. Launched in 2008, .ME is globally available, and its multiplicity of meaning and the fact that Google allows geo-targeting make this extension truly worldwide. So far, a number of high profile companies and startups including Facebook (fb.me), WordpPress (wp.me and jetpack.me), Time (ti.me), LogMein (join.me) are using .ME domains to personalize their online presence.
