GoDaddy is building up to a major promotion of the new .ME domain.
According to its Web site, the domain should be available for registration over the summer, with an initial Sunrise Period for trademark holders.
Based on some of the feedback I’m getting here, this could be a very popular domain. The squatters will certainly be first in line.
UPDATE: I just got word from Montenegro with dates for the registration process. They are as follows:
May 6-20, 2008
Open to all trademark owners and will have an auction process similar to dotAsia
June 6-26, 2008
This period will also contain an auction for multiple applications
July 17, 2008
Open to anyone on a first-come first-served basis.
