First dot Scot, now dot Wales

.scot provides individuals, organisations & businesses with the opportunity to illustrate their Scottish heritage via the World Wide Web. The much anticipated release of .scot was driven closely in line with the Scottish Independence Referendum.

.scot was released for general availability on the 23rd of September and 4,000 .scot domain names were registered by members of the public within an hour of the domain name becoming available. There were 1,500 .scot domain names snapped up in the first minute of the launch and these included: Labour.scot, Braveheart.scot, Cocacola.scot & Facebook.scot.

.scot is now available to register from HostLove at only £24.40 per annum – make a name for yourself today! Be quick!

News following the release of the .scot domain extension – .wales will soon be available to register also – businesses trading in Wales will be able to trade under the new domains in November however individuals will have to wait until March next year.

Baroness Rennie Fritchie, Chair of Nominet UK, the company behind .cymru and .wales, said: “After 25 years of the world wide web, Wales is making history by getting its own home online. We are proud to be part of the .cymru/.wales project, excited by the interest it’s generated, and look forward to seeing the Welsh community develop and grow online.”
