NEW YORK & PODGORICA, Montenegro --(Business Wire)--

This holiday season, the .ME Registry, operator of the .ME domain extension, is offering the perfect, last-minute holiday present - gift cards for personalized .ME domain names.

In order to simplify the process of holiday shopping, the .ME Registry has partnered with ME-net, Montenegro's leading registrar, to offer gift cards for the ultimate holiday present - a personal .ME domain name. The way it works is very simple: at TheGiftOf.Me, shoppers can purchase digital gift cards to send to their friends and loved ones. These recipients can then obtain the exact .ME domain they want and start building their personal online presence.

Its inherent ability to personalize makes the .ME domain perfect for online branding and it is becoming increasingly used by the general public as well as by celebrities. The personal websites of Nick Cannon (, and Suggs McPherson ( are excellent examples of high-profile individuals using .ME domains.

"We are living in the digital age when an online presence is a must," said Predrag Lesic, CEO of the .ME Registry. "In the digital world, it is even more important to stand out from the crowd, have an address that people can easily remember, and send a powerful message. What makes a dot-ME domain a perfect gift is the ability to send such a message via a simple website URL."

A Unique Gift for the Holidays

A .ME domain is a wonderful gift for all sorts of individuals. Bloggers could use a .ME domain for a personal blog. A recent college graduate or job hunter could use a .ME domain to feature a resume. The same follows for artists and other individuals looking for a more personal way to showcase what they do online. For those concerned about SEO or online reputation, a .ME domain name can provide a powerful boost to search. It's also ideal for a parent who wants to lock down a domain name on behalf of a child. Having a .ME domain also enables people to make their family-related email addresses catchy and memorable - instead of a or, a Hoffmann family may opt for a more personal and create accounts for each family member.

"How many times has someone given you a personal piece of Web real estate for Christmas This is a gift that is not only unique, but it has personal and long-term value," said Lesic.
