Scottish government switches to '.scot'
13 Mars 2015World Trademark Review
The Dot Scot Registry opened the ‘.scot’ new generic top-level domain (gTLD) for general availability on September 23 2014 and, on its first day, there were over 4,000 ‘.scot’ domain names registered, with around 1,500 of those being secured in the first 60 seconds alone. Currently, there are more than 8,000 domain names registered under the ‘.scot’ extension. The adoption of ‘www.gov.scot’ by the Scottish government is the latest sign that the ‘.scot’ gTLD is growing in popularity as the gTLD for Scotland.
