Funny .travel commercial – How Internet Savvy Are We?

.Travel fans have posted a funny ad “How Internet Savvy Are We?” on YouTube: Nice video indeed, but .travel is just too long to type and people hate long URLs (for details read our past marketing study). It would be nice to hear the answer for “What does .me stand for?” question. Mind, .me is […]

But who has time to read and remember them all? ReadItFor.Me does it for you. […]

Why .ME is Montenegrin?

A lot has been said about .ME domains, but why is it Montenegrin country-code Top Level Domain (ccTLD)? Wouldn’t it be more logical to assign .CG to the country, as it’s original name is Crna Gora (Black Mountain)? A bit of history: former Yugoslavia used .YU domain, which is now being phased out. Within Yugoslavia, […]

Web site for baby clothes branded as “Little me” is hosted at Littleme.com of course. But wouldn’t it look more prettier as Little.me? Now they have to joint-venture with Adam Eisner. Or maybe it is Adam who should leverage his domain into something bigger than a parked one: At Little Me®, a division of Mamiye […]

Verb.Me vs Noun.me etc

Important things first: this article does not talk in search engine optimisation language, but branding. Let us have a look on .Me from marketing prospective. Dutch.Me makes sense only in verb+me combination, e.g., Ontdek.Me (Discover.Me) and Reserveer.Me (Book.Me). Some of English Noun.Me are good, Coral.Me, Continent.Me, Ski.Me, Snow.Me, Sun.Me, … keep them. They will pop […]
