London Teams Up With New York City in Global #BestDotCity Campaign

21 March Underground

Dot London has joined forces with .NYC, the official web address for New York City, for a special social media campaign to help drive awareness of city-based Top Level Domain names. The campaign will run globally with other key cities, including Sydney, Melbourne and Berlin, for five weeks across Twitter, from 21st March – 22nd April 2016.

Currently over 30 cities have their own domain name, such as Tokyo, Moscow, Quebec and Miami, with many more planning to go live. The city-based website extensions give businesses and individuals the chance to create a stronger link with their home city and tell the world where they do their business.

During the campaign each participating city will post unique facts about what makes their city great. Dot London are additionally be giving away weekly ‘London Experience’ prizes to some of the capital’s top attractions that have Dot London web addresses, including the Natural History Museum and London Duck Tours.

Dan Hill, Head of Dot London, said: “This is a great opportunity for us to work with the other global city domain names. The campaign has been created to not only highlight what makes our cities so great, but also show why people should be proud to be associated with them by having their own city-based web address, like Dot London.”
