Until the end of this month they are designated for London based organisations and businesses only (.London, 2014) but will soon be opened up to others and can cost up to £50 a year or in the case of the most desired domains, will be put up for auction (BBC, 2014). This is following cities around the world such as .nyc for New York, .berlin in Germany and .wien in Austria (BBC, 2014). Other domains are following closely behind with .scot for Scotland ready for the Commonwealth Games next week and .wales/.cymru to be released for Wales in the near future.
