.ME Premium Domain Names are highly valuable .ME domains often found in common language, such as keywords, abbreviations or call-to-action domains which naturally create a catchy marketing message. They are reserved for the most innovative ideas and businesses out there, and that just might be you!
Imagine buying a concert ticket for your all-time favorite music band. You’ll give your best to find a ticket for a fan-pit, rather than being stuck somewhere in the 100th row unable to see a thing. Yes, it will cost a little more compared to the regular ticket, but the possibility of shaking hands with frontman is priceless! Or, if you’re the biggest fan of them all, you’ll probably raise a loan to buy a VIP package so you can chill out with the band later. No judging here!
This analogy can be applied to the premium domain names. If you want to create a memorable marketing message, engage more people and build a unique brand YOU GO PREMIUM.
.ME Premium Names are highly valuable .ME domains, such as key-words and call-to-action domains which naturally create a catchy marketing message. Just try to forget a service called About.ME, Return.ME or Join.ME. Mission impossible!

Why Premium Domain Program?
Generally, companies may register available (unreserved) domains through their preferred registrar or, as is typically the case, a company may also offer to register a domain that is already registered and/or currently in use directly from its “owner”. However, if a company seeks a domain that is a common word or a keyword, this can be prohibitively expensive or lead to long, cumbersome URLs that are a vague variation on the name of the company, product or service. We created the Premium Domain Program to avoid this problem.
As premium domains can be rare and often inaccessible, we reserved many keyword and common term domain names for future use by creative companies, online communities, startups and entrepreneurs with great ideas and valuable services.
