GoDaddy is promoting the .me domain name as "a great domain for individuals or businesses looking to uniquely express themselves online with a podcast, blog, online photo album, or Web site dedicated to their interests." Go Daddy CEO and founder, Bob Parsons, said: "To the best of our knowledge, there have never been more registrations handled in one day during the ordinary course of business by any registrar in history."
The demand caused GoDaddy a few problems. It has admitted that "During the start of registration - requests for .me came in at such a rapid pace that it caused slowness to the GoDaddy.com Web site...As a result of the slowness, some GoDaddy customers registered domain names that were already taken or reserved by the .me registry before launch - for government use or to be released at a later date. Once the site stabilised, Go Daddy began notifying customers of the invalid registrations and started processing refunds."
Anyone who wants to register a .me domain can do so at GoDaddy.com. The full list of reserved .me names is available here.
