    This is really superb. This post made me wondering about the days back in 2000 when I wondered how the websites are registered. Now after registering so many sites, it looks like this article is superb for everyone who want to register a new domain. From the first day I registered my .ME domain, I want to confess that whenever I want to register a new name or have in mind, I look to the .ME name before all others.

        Hey Ivy,
        I have been in touch with most of the .ME team. I have a very good experience with them as the gratitude they have shown towards ME and all other Internet users all around the world. It is not only the name ‘ME’ but they have personally developed relations with all. They have shown a definitive confident growth as a country and as an Internet Registry and have build a lot of confidence in ME to support them. All love to everyone at ME Registry from India…..:)
