Third-level registrations are available to Montenegrin individuals and entities only, in the following zones. Me-Net is the only registrar allowed to register third-level domains in the registry.


The University of Montenegro's Center of Information Systems (CIS) is responsible for subdomains beneath these domain names and should be contacted directly:


A list of Reserved Names (dotME_Reserved_Names.txt dotME_Reserved_and_Premium_Names.pdf) has been held back for government and registry use. These names are not available for registration by the public.
A list of Premium Names (dotME_Premium_Names.txt dotME_Reserved_and_Premium_Names.pdf) has been held back, and these names are not currently available for registration. The Registry plans to make these names available in manner(s) to be determined at a later time.


.ME Transfers are possible. A .ME Domain will automatically be renewed for one more year.

Transfer procedure

  • .ME Transfers can either be done through the RRPproxy WebInterface or API.

Transfer notes

  • A .ME Domain Transfer must be initiated with a so-called Authorisation Code, which can be obtained from the current registrar through the owner or Admin-C of the domain.
  • Ensure that your respective domain does not have a lock-status (REGISTRAR-LOCK or HOLD). This can be seen in the WHOIS. If the domain is locked, then the owner can demand that this be unlocked.

Transfer time

A transfer takes 5 days to complete.


Restores are possible in general. A restore can be requested via API command or via webinterface.

command = restoredomain
