Scotland wins .scot domain after deciding to remain in the UK


dotscot

Not separate Scotland from the UK, have voted in a referendum and have decided that they prefer (at least most) remain within the union, but it has gained its own domain: .scot

This domain has already been announced in July, but only now can be used freely in the country (so far only had access to it a few commercial establishments). Anyone based in Scotland can create a minombre.scot , replacing .com .uk, etc.

John Swinney, the finance secretary said that in this way the possibility to express their Scottish identity or affinity Internet, ensuring that http://www.gov.scot be one of the first projects undertaken by the Scottish Government opens.

Balloon comment that people who have already bought up to 20 addresses to the new domain, and a survey by Fasthosts noted that 71% of Scots say they feel more inclined to buy from a company that uses a web address with the domain “.scot”.
