Germany: Berlin first city with its own internet domain

Post by TLDaddict on Fri Mar 14, 2014 6:49 pm

Companies or individuals based in the German capital will be able to use .berlin at the end of their website addresses from 18 March, the dpa news agency reports. The suffix - technically known as a generic top-level domain (gTLD) - was created under an agreement between Berlin's local government and ICANN, the US-based organisation that co-ordinates global internet systems.

First City New gTLD To Goes Live Tomorrow .Berlin

Post by TLDaddict on Mon Mar 17, 2014 7:44 pm

Arguably it is the extension that kicked this whole new gTLD thing off.

On March 18, .BERLIN will launch into the General Availability phase. 777 years after the city was founded, any business, organization or individual can register Internet addresses under .BERLIN.
