One week from today, on October 8th, the brand new .NYC top-level domain (TLD) enters the general availability phase. At that point, anyone with a physical address in one of New York City’s five boroughs can register a brand new Web address for their website.
As one of the first city-specific top-level domains (TLD) to be launched, .NYC is poised to become one of the most popular domain extensions available, so businesses are encouraged to grab their desired domain name as soon as possible. Currently, 1&1 offers pre-registration for .NYC in anticipation of its official launch. Pre-registrations with 1&1 are on an exclusive first-come, first-served basis, which means no other 1&1 customers are able to pre-register a domain option that has been previously chosen by another party. On the official launch date, the allocation of domains is carried out by the registry.
