Can anyone give me examples of brands or big companies using .me.uk domains at all?
They're no allowed to, but they can be the registrant as a result of DRS wins.
There are many out there, not sure how many "big companies" though
Just a few examples
Hmm, so what is going on with the examples given in this thread?
.me.uk can be used for anything, they just have to be registered to an individual. In the cases above, if the first one was reported to Nominet they would contact the registrant and advise them they they need to transfer it/update it to an individual registrant.
.me.uk's are the unloved of the domaining world!
The reason why they are unloved is that they are allegedly harder to rank... however a great example is found if you type grand national into google.. ... grand-national.me.uk comes 3rd for me...
a hyphen and .me.uk!
If Nominet just revisited usage rules on its already existing stock of .uk, then we certainly wouldn't need the current .uk debacle!
I'm seeing more and more .me.uk's ranking now - guess the age factor (which takes apart in G's algo factors) are starting to give those .me.uk's some benefit
there's been a couple of quite high value .me sales which has probably help lift the perception of .me.uk in some circles, I don't value them unless you can make a 'personal' or clever/memorable pairing with the word.me.uk
I hold the webcam.me.uk (and one other). Which I suppose you could view as being suitable for both a personal and business sex website. But I would certainly advise using .Me as opposed to .me.uk if your going to develop it
http://www.show.me.uk/ - looks like a govt project.
.. registered to 24hr museum ltd..... Mmmm not really an individual!
... but does come up in first place on G for 'show me' ..
