ccTLDs, or domain extensions that represent specific countries, have been around and adopted for many years. What people don’t know is that there are now New Domains that reflect some of the major cities around the world. These are just a few of the options out there.
The .LONDON domain sets the city of London apart from the rest of the U.K. with a dedicated extension. A number of local brands have adopted this domain for their business, with URLs like yogarise.london, moa.london, and thevaults.london being used.
As one of the most prominent cities in Australia, it’s only natural for this trendy city to have its own domain. A Melbourne-based photographer shop that specializes in family portraiture uses the domain birth.melbourne to advertise its services, and a class that teaches sausage making uses sausage.melbourne.
New York City is an icon for Americans and a thriving tourist destination for international travelers. But the residents of the city have the unique opportunity to own their own .NYC domain. Online fashion periodical Fashionality uses the domain fashionality.nyc and marketing agency Lumina has adopted lumina.nyc.
Paris, France is a tourist hot spot, so it only makes sense that the city would adopt the .PARIS domain for many of their tourist resources and destinations. The Paris metro system uses—you guessed it—metro.paris, and you can arrange for a tour of one of the most well-known structures in the world via toureiffel.paris.
Not to be outdone by Melbourne, the city of Sydney has also adopted its own domain extension. .SYDNEY has been used by the iconic landmark Luna Park (via lunapark.sydney) and the Market City shopping center (marketcity.sydney).
This epicenter of culture has always been on the cutting edge when it comes to new trends—so it’s not surprise that Tokyo has a domain of its own. Japanese individuals and businesses have been quick to use the domain for themselves, with fundoshi.tokyo, pride.tokyo, madein.tokyo, and more already in use.
These New Domains are just the beginning of the list of cities that have their own unique domain extension. From .BARCELONA to .MIAMI, there are a number of city dwellers around the world that could have exclusive use to their city’s domain extension.
