The de Blasio administration today announced the public availability of the City’s top-level domain, .nyc, for all businesses, organizations, and individuals with a physical address in New York City. New Yorkers can register their own personalized .nyc web addresses by visiting www.OwnIt.nyc and selecting an independent retailer of their choice. Domain names are available on a first come, first served basis.
For the past several months, individuals, businesses and nonprofit organizations had the opportunity to request .nyc domains during the Sunrise and Landrush periods. More than 10,000 New Yorkers—representing thousands of small businesses, organizations, and dozens of business improvement districts and cultural institutions across the five boroughs—successfully secured their own .nyc domain during this early registration phase.
