One of the most eagerly awaited new domain name extension launches is .london. Of the 45 dot city top level domains dot london together with .paris, .berlin and .nyc are expected to become the most popular. To date we have seen 65.000 .london domain registrations. For local businesses .london is a great web address, which communicates so much better than a .com or .uk.
Your City. Your Domain. Dot London Testimonials
CentralNic and buydomains.london CEO Ben Crawford has this to say about .london: “Having your own .london website is not only the gateway to doing business globally,” Crawford added. “It’s also increasingly become the key to doing business locally, as London residents and visitors armed with smartphones and tablets now use the internet to look up a shop’s address, to find a tradesman, book a mini-cab or order a takeaway. Small businesses in London need their own websites just to keep their existing customers, and to have any prospect of winning new ones.” CentralNic has released a great video with interviews with .london registrants. Do check it and be inspired. I can see that my friend from halfhitch.london is also featured. You can also read about him in our post on 50+ websites which switched domain name to a new extension.
