As a .nyc domain owner, was approached to be one of the faces of the new top-level domain’s marketing campaign. It’s pretty exciting, as our website will be promoted across New York City as a featured .nyc destination on the web.

What is .nyc?

In June of 2012, ICANN (the organization responsible for determining which top-level domains are available) decided to expand upon the offering of top-level domains, beyond the standard .com, .net, .org, etc. One of the new domains proposed was .nyc, a top-level domain exclusive to people and businesses located in New York City. The proposed TLD was approved, and made available in October of 2014.
