.NYC Case Study

Taking .nyc from 0 to 60.

From preparation to promotion to protection, we have the experience necessary to help a domain succeed. With the historic launch of .nyc, New York will become one of the first cities in the world to have its own top-level domain. The City of New York selected Neustar to operate the technical infrastructure, as well as support the domain with marketing efforts. Through .nyc, the City aims to establish New York as a digital leader, generate revenue, support local businesses and promote tourism. In addition to providing technical registry services and support, we work with our marketing partner, Pappas Group, to promote .nyc to its target audience. Together, we’re taking .nyc from three letters to a full-blown, branded TLD available to the public.

 

Like with any great opportunity, success is in the details.

With only a handful of TLDs active today, getting yours in during this first wave of new domains is a huge opportunity for your brand. Imagine if you’d been able to predict what the internet would become during the dawn of the .com era. This time, you’re ahead of the game. But you have to get it right.
