BOSTON, Sept. 25, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Hello.boston, a company specializing in domain name registrations, has opened pre-registrations for .BOSTON Internet domains ahead of their public availability on October 10. Any business or individual can apply for a .BOSTON domain name at www.hello.boston.com starting at $17.99 per domain.
The new .BOSTON domain is just like the traditional .COM, .NET, .ORG, etc…, but identifies the website as made in or about the city of Boston, such as www.hotels.Boston, www.education.Boston or www.restaurants.Boston. This new extension is part of a program developed by ICANN to increase the number of possible domains. Other major cities, including New York, London, and Berlin, have already launched their own domain extensions.
"If you own a business, work or live in Boston, it's imperative you acquire your .BOSTON domain," said Gerardo Aristizabal, director of Hello.boston. "Owning a piece of Boston's digital real estate offers tremendous branding and marketing opportunities. This is a good move for a global community like Boston with a burgeoning startup community, red-hot real estate market and always-thriving hospitality industry. We've seen a huge response for these city-focused domains elsewhere and expect the same excitement here in Boston."
The Hello.boston team has extensive experience introducing local domains having been actively involved in the launch of .NYC, the domain for the city of New York. The team supported the City Government registrations and the founders program for the first .NYC domains to go live, among other activities. Now they are working on getting .BOSTON domains to their rightful hands.
The pre-registration period, available through www.hello.boston, gives local businesses and entrepreneurs an early opportunity to acquire their brand domain names and be the first ones to own a piece of .BOSTON.
