The sudden death of .me.uk
With 2 million web pages indexed by Google, .me.uk, a British second level country code domain, only represents 0.3% of nearly 700 million .uk pages. Not a great success at all.
Considering 500+ million of .co.uk pages (British equivalent of .com), 109 million of gov.uk (government), 30 million of .org.uk, 25 million of ac.uk (British equivalent of .edu), nearly 6 million of .nhs.uk (National Health System), some 2 million .bl.uk (British Library) and 1.4 million .parliament.uk pages - .me.uk didn't become neither trendy nor very popular.
It has only outnumbered specific and even less famous sub-domains, name.ly: .sch.uk (Schools) with 980 thousand indexed pages, .police.uk with 630 thousand, .mod.uk (Ministry of Defence) with 400 thousand, .ltd.uk (Limited Liability Company) with 255 thousand, .nls.uk (National Library of Scotland) with 40 thousand, .net.uk with 40 thousand and .plc.uk (Public Listed Company) with 20 thousand pages.
The other 666 .uk pages not classified above can be Googled here.
New Montenegrin .me, topping now at 4 million index pages and growing, is leaving .me.uk far behind in the history. For any .me.uk owner serious.ly thinking about his or her online business it is high time to make a switch.
