A Personal Start Page Service Launches on Start.ME Domain
Podgorica, Montenegro (PRWEB) June 12, 2014
The .ME Registry is proud to announce the launch of Start.ME, a startup focused on delivering personal start page experience. Start.ME allows users to create start pages and organize their favorite bookmarks and news feeds.
When Google shut down their iGoogle service in November 2013, millions of users around the world had to start looking for an alternative start page. With a user-friendly interface and over 100,000 registrations in just over couple of months Start.ME is on the right way to fill this gap. Their mission is to deliver a personalized start page service that offers minimal distractions and maximum control. Users can easily create whatever they want to see first when they launch a browser using a variety of widgets including bookmarks, RSS feeds, custom search engines, notes, weather information and Google services.
Michiel de Wit, the CTO of Start.ME commented on a .ME domain acquisition: “We wanted a short domain with a universal meaning that could put the emphasis on the the ability of our service to personalize the daily routine of receiving most important news and updates from the Web. Therefore, we are very happy that we secured the Start.ME domain. It is the perfect name for us."
“.ME premium domains help brands send a personal message to their customers and prompt them to take action. This is exactly what Start.ME had in mind when they applied for our .ME Premium Domain Program,” says Predrag Lesic, the CEO of the .ME Registry. “We would like to see more companies recognizing the importance of sending a call-to-action in the URL of their websites.”
