.ME Accounts


#1

Hello.

I’m not sure if this is the right place for this question, so apologies if it is not. (Hopefully, the admins can move it . . .)

Will DreamHost ever be able to register/host .me domains?

If no, why not?

Thanks!

quoting wikipedia:
".me is the Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for Montenegro."

Foreign domain names are controlled by registries controlled by there own countries.

Foreign policies vary. For example you can’t register .ca (canadian) domain names unless your Canadian. I believe the Brits are the same way with the .co.uk names.

The lovely folks in Tongo relaized the value of there top level domain .to and made a lot of money selling surf.to/subjectmatterword and go.to/subjectmatterword addresses that forwarded. Probably quite a nice revenue stream (mostly from the porn industry).

You can’t register it with DreamHost, but you can host it (in fact any domain) with DreamHost. You’ll have to find a registry where you can register the .me domain and then point the nameserver entries to the DreamHost nameservers. Then you add hosting for that domain to your account.
