This mission will enhance consumer choice by providing new availability in the second-level domain space, creating new layers of organization on the Internet, and signaling the kind of content available in the domain. Charleston Road Registry believes that registrants will find value in associating with this gTLD, which could have a vast array of meanings and purposes for businesses, organizations and individuals. Charleston Road Registry expects these uses may include but are not limited to applications such as discoverthis.meme, needtoknow.meme, or memename.meme. Charleston Road Registry believes that given its wide variety of uses, the .meme gTLD will best add value to the gTLD space by remaining totally open and unencumbered by registrant restrictions. There will, therefore, be no restrictions on second-level domain name registrations in the proposed gTLD, .meme. Charleston Road Registry will make access to Registry Services, including the shared registration system, available to all ICANN-accredited registrars. Domain names within the proposed gTLD will be available to the general public for registration and use. Charleston Road Registry is committed to implementing strong and integrated intellectual property rights protection mechanisms. Doing so is critical to Google’s goals of model Internet citizenship and fostering Internet development, especially in emerging regions. Accordingly, Charleston Road Registry intends to offer a suite of rights protection measures, which builds upon ICANNʹs required policies while fulfilling our commitment to encouraging innovation, competition and choice on the Internet."[http://gtldresult.icann.org/application-result/applicationstatus/applicationdetails/521 Application Download, gTLDresult.ICANN.org] Retrieved 20 Feb 2013 ==Contract Signed== On 30 January 2014 [[Google]] received a [[Registry Agreement]] signed by [[ICANN]] for .meme after passing all the required processes needed to become a [[Registry Operator]] for the string.[http://www.icann.org/en/about/agreements/registries-date Registry Agreements, ICANN.org] Retrieved 03 Feb 2014 ==Delegation== .meme was delegated to the [[Root Zone]] of the [[DNS]] on the 30th August, 2014, completing the successful application for the string.[http://newgtlds.icann.org/en/program-status/delegated-strings ICANN delegated strings] Retrieved 5th December 2014. ==References== {{reflist}} [[Category:TLD]] [[Category:Technology New gTLDs|meme]] [[Category:TLDs with Registry Agreements|meme]] __NOTOC__

Domain naming tips

3 basic tips when selecting the right domain name for your website.

Using a local top level domain

If it’s a local business and you want more customers, why not take a look at our domains which are given according to the location you require (.lt , .co.uk, .nyc, .berlin).

Avoid numbers

Avoid the usage of numbers because the people who hear about your website will be having a tough time figuring out if the website contains the number (2) or the number in words (two).

Avoid symbols

Hyphens and dashes will make things complicated and it doesn’t look professional.
