I donât know about you, but I reckon if I turned up on Valentineâs Day with a domain name as a gift for a beloved, I would get short shrift and be shown the door! But the .ME Registry thinks otherwise and is trying to entice people to give their loved one âpersonalised gift cards for the purchase of .ME domain names.â
And if thatâs not enough to entice you, âthe registry will host a three-day, âcheesyâ Valentine Twitter contest. Ten participants will win a free .ME domain and the opportunity to be featured on the .ME blog.â
Explaining it further, the registry says âthis Valentineâs Day, the .ME Registry has partnered with ME-net, Montenegroâs leading registrar, to offer gift cards. The process is simple: shoppers can purchase digital gift cards from TheGiftOf.ME and email them to their loved ones. Recipients can then visit the site, select the .ME domain they want and start building their online presence.â
âTo celebrate this holiday, on 30 January, 6 February and 13 February, followers of the official .ME Twitter account will have the chance to participate in the #MyCheesyValentine Twitter contest by tweeting funny, witty and unconventional Valentineâs Day greetings. The .ME team will select ten winners, who will be awarded a free .ME domain name registration for one year. Complete rules are posted here.â
âWe love the sentiment behind this special day and are thrilled to be sharing love and laughs through our Twitter contest this Valentineâs Day,â said Predrag Lesic, CEO of the .ME Registry. âOur hope is to showcase the creativity of our wonderful community and give people the opportunity to surprise their loved ones with a gift as unique as the person they love â a dot-ME domain name.â
I think the gift is definitely unique! But would you really give a domain name to a loved one, unless they were, say, a domainer? Go on, prove me wrong!
