I don’t know about you, but I reckon if I turned up on Valentine’s 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 “personalised gift cards for the purchase of .ME domain names.”
And if that’s not enough to entice you, “the registry will host a three-day, ‘cheesy’ Valentine Twitter contest. Ten participants will win a free .ME domain and the opportunity to be featured on the .ME blog.”
Explaining it further, the registry says “this Valentine’s Day, the .ME Registry has partnered with ME-net, Montenegro’s 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.”
“To 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 Valentine’s 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.”
“We love the sentiment behind this special day and are thrilled to be sharing love and laughs through our Twitter contest this Valentine’s Day,” said Predrag Lesic, CEO of the .ME Registry. “Our 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 – a dot-ME domain name.”
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!
