By the end of this year a new domain will be available to the people of New York City!! It is .nyc unlike .com, .edu or .gov this new domain will give small businesses a boost and let customers know that they are located in NYC.
With .nyc, small businesses can better “identify their local roots,” City Councilwoman Gale Brewer said, identifying with what Bloomberg called “one of the world’s strongest and most prestigious brands.” -Eliza Fawcett, DNAinfo.com
The new domain name will generate millions of dollars in revenue for the city, because the city will receive 40 percent of the revenue generated by the sale of web addresses in the .nyc domain, officials said. -Eliza Fawcett, DNAinfo.com
