Dot Scot will be a real asset to the worldwide family of Scots.
Glasgow, United Kingdom (PRWEB) September 23, 2014
Scotland’s new domain Dot Scot is now available to register for Scots living in the United States.
The .scot domain, which will give Scottish businesses and individuals across the world a unique Internet identity, has entered the General Availability phase and is now available from ICANN-accredited domain name registrar Easyspace.
According to census reports there are as many people of Scottish descent living in North America as there are in Scotland and a number of ex-pat organizations in the US have already become Dot Scot pioneers and plan to use the new domain for their websites.

Sarah Haran, managing director of Easyspace, said: “The new Dot Scot domain is now available on a first-come first-served basis to everyone. The huge engagement of the worldwide online community with the recent referendum debate in Scotland shows there is a definite clamour for a new national identity online and having a .scot web or email address can be part of that.”
Gavin McCutcheon, director of the DotScot Registry, said: "This is a fantastic day for Scotland online. I am confident that the .scot domain name will prove to be a real asset to the people of Scotland and to the worldwide family of Scots.”
