.me Domain Names

Once, it seemed like almost every website used a com domain name. Now, great alternatives like me and co are appearing everywhere. But what is this name?

In simple terms, it’s a name (or website address) that ends with me. We call this last part the domain extension or the top-level .

What is a Domain Extension?

As we’ve just seen, extensions form the final part of names. Our own website is, meaning our extension is ae.

Top-level names, such as com and net, don’t relate to a single country. This makes top-level names perfect for businesses that trade internationally.

Country Code Top Level

Country code top-level domains (cctld) are another extension. These relate to one country. For example, ae relates to the UAE, and uk relates to the UK. These extensions are great for businesses that focus mainly on one country or region.

What Does .me Stand for in a URL?

The .me is actually the country code top-level name for Montenegro – a small country in Southeast Europe. But it’s popular all over the world – and especially in the Middle East. Wikipedia’s article on me covers the set up and structure.

How to Use .me Domains

To understand how to use .me, you need to understand the 3 things they can represent.

The Personal Touch

First, the extension simply looks like the word ‘me’. This makes it perfect for businesses based around one person. It can also be a good choice if you sell products or services designed for individuals.

Popular in the Middle East

It is the country code top-level for Montenegro, me is very popular in the Middle East. In fact, many people believe .me is for a Middle East name! Because of this, Middle Eastern customers recognise .me domain names as being relevant to their region.

Domain Hacks

You can also use the me extension creatively to make a phrase. For example, would make a great name for a dating site because it looks like ‘date me’.

This is a good example of a hack. It can be a great way to get a memorable URL. Acting as a call to action without the user even entering the website.
