As of yesterday you could purchase a .me domain name. That might be just the start of a lot of domain names opening up for purchase. I recently wrote about a recommendation that ICANN, the organization that regulates domain names, open up new extensions as early as next year. This may or not be a good idea, depending on who is implementing the domains and how.
OrangeSoda’s Derek Miner and Chris Finken were interviewed for a story that was featured on KSL Radio (link goes to the MP3 file of the interview) and their site about domain names and Internet marketing. It talks about the expense of starting a new extension and when it might make sense. Generally speaking for most businesses, a .com is still the best way to go.
Have you registered a .me domain or do you plan to purchase a new creative domain extension? Let us know about it in the comments.
