The .ME Registry, operator of the .ME domain extension, has launched TheGiftOf.ME, to offer “the perfect present for Valentine’s Day – personalized gift cards for the purchase of .ME domain names”.
This is another great example of new and creative ways that registries will sell domain names and increase the usage of the extension.
In addition to the Giftcard site, the registry will host a three-day, “cheesy” Valentine Twitter contest.
Ten participants will win a free .ME domain and the opportunity to be featured on the .ME blog.
“This Valentine’s Day, the .ME Registry has partnered with ME-net, Montenegro’s leading registrar, to offer gift cards. “
“The process is simple: shoppers can purchase digital gift cards from TheGiftOf.ME and email them to their loved ones. Recipients can then visit the site, select the .ME domain they want and start building their online presence.
To celebrate this holiday, on Jan. 30, Feb. 6 and Feb. 13, followers of the official .ME Twitter account will have the chance to participate in the #MyCheesyValentine Twitter contest by tweeting funny, witty and unconventional Valentine’s Day greetings. “
“The .ME team will select ten winners, who will be awarded a free .ME domain name registration for one year. Complete rules are posted here”.

“A Truly Unique Gift, A .ME domain is a wonderful gift for all sorts of people”.
“Bloggers can use a .ME domain for a personal blog”.
“A recent college graduate or job hunter can use a .ME domain to feature a resume. The same is true for artists and individuals looking for a more personal way to showcase what they do online. For those concerned about SEO or online reputation, a .ME domain name can provide a powerful boost to online visibility. The extension is also ideal for a parent who wants to lock down a domain name on behalf of a child or secure a catchy, memorable family email address”.
