NYC begins rollout of '.nyc' web domain

NEW YORK (AP) - Businesses and organizations that want to show that New York City is their domain can start applying for a ".nyc" web address.

Mayor Bill de Blasio made the announcement Monday. It's the first phase in launching the new ".nyc" domain.

The city got initial approval for a ".nyc" domain in July. It means web addresses can end in ".nyc" instead of such common suffixes as ".com" or ".org."

As a start, registered trademark holders with a physical address in the city will be able to apply for a ".nyc" address. They can apply through one of over 30 authorized registrars.

Fees will be determined by the registrars. A portion will benefit the city.

City officials say the ".nyc" domain helps New York businesses set themselves apart from competitors elsewhere.

    Making New York City more energy efficient

    Making New York City more energy efficient

    More than half the population of New York City rides public transportation to work. No other metropolis in this country even approaches that percentage or the MTA's total number of riders. For that reason, New York likely ranks as the most energy-efficient city in the nation. But what would it take to make the city even more energy-efficient or even self-sufficient?
