HEXONET recently had the fortune and opportunity to connect with Mr. Predrag Lesic, CEO of dotME, whose insights on the dotME registry and where it may be heading are not only engaging, but also highly informative.
The .ME registry is quickly approaching the second anniversary of its “Go Live” this July 16, 2010, how many domains do you anticipate to have under management by then? Also, what main factor do you attribute to .ME’s success thus far?
Well, considering the number of daily registrations we are currently seeing, we should expect to have approx. 430,000 Domains under management on our second anniversary. The main success thus far for .ME, besides it being a memorable TLD, having multiple varied uses, and the registry having outstanding relationships with its registrars, is the fact that Internet users have the ability to recognize not only the value of a domain name, but the value of a message sent through the name. The Web is becoming more personal than ever, and the ability to create online content personalization is an integral part of .ME
