"The race for the first round of .nyc domain names was a pretty feisty one. More than 1,000 proposed domain extensions ending in .nyc received multiple applications, according to information from Web analytics company Neustar, which handles tech and registration issues for the city's domain. It's probably no surprise there are so many names facing stiff competition -- .nyc is the ninth most popular new top-level domain, or website suffix like .com, .org, or .net."
