Which Cities and Regions Are Applying for a dot City TLD?

Richard Florida, author of The Rise of the Creative Class, has written extensively about the “creative city” -- metropolitan regions with high concentrations of technology workers, among other creative groups. These technologically advanced environments, he notes, attract significant businesses and capital. One of the ways you can ensure your city or region is perceived – and acts – like a “creative city” is to use a city-specific TLD to identify your city or region.

Several cities have already applied for a dot City TLD, including:

  • Barcelona --.bcn
  • Berlin --.berlin
  • Hamburg --.hamburg
  • Cologne --.cologne
  • London --.london
  • New York --.nyc
  • Paris --.paris
  • Rome --.roma
  • Sydney --.sydney

If you are a city official, or advisor to a city, or simply an interested citizen, what will you do today to ensure that your city gets its own space on the Internet the next time the window opens to apply for a dot City domain?
