The new TLD (Top Level Domain) .ME is now open for registering. It is typically $49.95 and there is a minimum 2 year registration period. A lot of registration companies are advertising it as meaning that the extension is for people referring to themselves as "me". It really stands for Montenegro. The country purchased the TLD and is now selling the domains. It will be interesting to see how much these domains will be worth. Some of the popular phrases that end with "me" are already registered. I took the gamble and registered http://ani.me/ (Anime). I will place some animations on it and try to generate some revenue. Anime is the short-term for animation. I may have waisted my time and money, but it is worth a try.
