This new top level domain is for all things Scottish and related to Scotland. The vision of .scot is "to give people, organisations and businesses the opportunity to clearly identify themselves as Scottish. .scot websites offer a unique branding tool for businesses and a clear cultural identifier for people in Scotland and in the wider Scots diaspora".
Domains that end in .scot - for example bettertogether.scot and yesscotland.scot. These domains are intended for the greater Scottish community on the internet to brand and stablish themselves as part of the Scottish community.
Dot Scot Registry is in charge of the .scot domains. The registry will be run as a not for profit organisation putting any money raised back into digital skills training in Scotland.
Anyone in any country is free to register a .scot domain name. There are no restrictions regarding the geography of your website or whether you have a Scotland address.
Prices are determined by the register - Dot Scot Registry - and are currently £30.00 per year. The registry has hinted at possible lower prices in the future: "We aim to make .scot domain names as affordable as possible and fully expect the price to decrease with time. The price of .com and .co.uk domain names started out much more expensive than they are now and have decreased over the years."
In a world crowded with hosting companies, you need to be sure you're picking the very best.
