IDNs will enable .ME domains to be personal for people around the world.
The .ME registry is launching internationalized domain names (IDNs) on November 12.
While many registries offer IDNs, I think .ME offering them at this point is newsworthy given the registry’s size and because of how many people use .me domains. .Me is technically the country code domain name for Montenegro, but people use it for personal sites for obvious reasons.
A lot of people use (personal name).me for their website, and IDN .me addresses will open up a lot of new names.
Supported languages and scripts include:
