NYC Digital (http://www.nyc.gov/html/digital/html/home/home.shtml) invites New Yorkers to a workshop and info session on .nyc (http://www.mydotnyc.com), New York City’s Top-Level Domain. A top-level domain (TLD) is what is at the end of a domain name such as .com, .org or .edu.
With the historic launch of .nyc, the City of New York will become one of the first cities in the world with a top-level domain, creating new opportunities to support local businesses, organizations, and communities and establishing an unprecedented level of geographic authority in the digital sphere.
The meetup will begin with a presentation on .NYC by government and industry experts, followed by group breakout sessions. Topics will include: what is a TLD, .NYC launch plans, what .NYC means for your business or nonprofit organization, how to apply for a .NYC domain, and more.
Please join us in this open forum to collaboratively share your insights, ideas and questions around the launch of .NYC. Visit http://www.mydotnyc.com for more information.
Space is limited to 175 people. RSVPs are required through http://www.meetup.com/nycgov .
