New .London Domain Name expected in 2014
It’s been announced that a new top level domain name of .London will be available in early 2014 following an agreement between ICANN (the organisation which is responsible for the coordination of the internet's naming systems) and Dot London Domains Limited, the registry which will operate the .London system.
It is thought that the .London domain name will be available in 2014, firstly to London based companies and individuals, before being rolled out in a second phase to trade mark owners to enable them to register their .London domains and then thirdly to everyone else.
It’s an exciting development for domain names as London is one of the first cities to have its own top level domain name.
