1. General Registration Policies

Term: Domain names may be registered for a minimum of one (1) year, and a maximum of ten (10) years.
Autorenewal: Domains automatically renew at the end of their term (the expiration date). Please contact your registrar for details.
Domain name length: .Me domain names must be at least 1 character (second level) or 2 characters (third level), excluding the extension (.me, org.me, etc.) and a maximum 63 characters in length, excluding the extension (.me, org.me, etc.).
Allowable characters: Only the Latin alphabet letters a-z, digits, and hyphens are currently accepted in a domain name. Domain names cannot begin or end with hyphens. Internationalized domain names (IDNs) may be offered in the future, but in the meantime the registry does not currently accept letters with accent marks, Cyrillic characters, etc. Domain names with hyphens in the third and fourth positions are prohibited.
Contact information: Registrants must provide accurate contact information. The following contact types are required: Registrant, Administrative, Technical, Billing. The use of proxy registration data or proxy registration contacts is prohibited in Sunrise and Land Rush. The registry requires that registrars submit true and accurate data at the time of Sunrise and Land Rush applications, and in Sunrise the registrant data should reflect the trademark owners identity.
Transfers: Registrants are allowed to transfer their second-level domains to the registrar of their choice. Registrants should contact their registrar of choice to learn about transfer procedures. Registrar-to-registrar transfers are not allowed in the 60 days following the creation of a domain name. A registrar-to-registrar transfer adds one year to the term of the domain name, charged to the gaining registrar. Registrars may therefore charge the registrant for the domain year.
Grace periods: Certain grace periods exist to allow for the cancellation of transactions by registrars within certain time periods. Please contact your registrar for details.
Nameservers: To register a .Me domain, the registrant does not need to provide nameserver information. In order to appear in the zone file and resolve on the Internet, at least two (2) valid nameserver must be associated with the domain name.
The Registry reserves the right to adjust the allocated bandwidth and connections allotted to registrars.

2. Domain Name Abuse

Domain Name abuses should not be tolerated and doMEn and its Registrars will take appropriate actions based upon such investigations when made by doMEn or in compliance with competent legal authority.  Abusive practices include, but are not limited to, the following:
Spam: The use of electronic messaging systems to send unsolicited bulk messages, especially advertising, indiscriminately, such as instant messaging spam, Usenet newsgroup spam, Web search engine spam, spam in blogs, wiki spam, online classified ads spam, mobile phone messaging spam, Internet forum spam, junk fax transmissions, social networking spam, social spam, and file sharing spam.
Phishing: Posing as a legitimate company by defrauding an online account holder to provide sensitive, personal information such as user names, passwords, social security numbers, bank accounts, and credit card numbers.
Pharming: The fraudulent practice of directing Internet users to a bogus website that mimics the appearance of a legitimate one, in order to obtain personal information such as passwords, account numbers, etc.
Willful distribution of malware: Willful distribution of malware: The dissemination of software designed to infiltrate or damage a computer system without the owner’s informed consent. Examples include, without limitation, computer viruses, worms, keyloggers, and trojan horses;
Fast flux hosting: A DNS technique used by botnets to hide phishing and malware delivery sites behind an ever-changing network of compromised hosts acting as proxies. The basic idea behind Fast flux is to have numerous IP addresses associated with a single fully qualified domain name, where the IP addresses are swapped in and out with extremely high frequency, through changing DNS records.
Botnet command and control: Botnets run on a domain name and are collections of compromised hosts that attackers remotely control for their own malicious purposes. After connecting, a bot-controlled host can be controlled by an attacker and commanded to conduct malicious actions such as sending spam, scanning the Internet for other potentially controllable hosts, or launching denial-of-service attacks (DDoS) attacks.
Illegal Access to Other Computers or Networks: Illegally accessing computers, accounts, or via e-mail spam, instant messaging spam, mobile messaging spam, and the spamming of Web sites and Internet forums, phishing, pharming, willful distribution of malware, distribution of child pornography, and illegal access to other computers or networks.
Distribution of child pornography.
Gathering domains by misuse of WHOIS information.

In addition to any other rights of doMEn, doMEn reserves the right to deny or cancel the registration, renewal, or transfer of any .Me domain name, or to place any .Me domain name on registry lock, hold, or similar status, with respect to any such domain name that doMEn, upon reasonable belief, deems is being used in a manner that facilitates abusive behavior, including the above.
