New York, NY (PRWEB) February 3, 2010
.music (DOT MUSIC) has surpassed 2 million global subscribers, friends, followers, fans and petitioners across social media platforms, including Twitter, MySpace and Facebook. It is a clear, powerful showing of support to the much-anticipated .music Top-Level Domain (TLD).
"The .music domain extension is about giving the global music community a unique identity and a highly visible home on the web that represents their brand name, their music and music-related products and services, “says Constantine Roussos, founder and CEO of .music. “The .music domain extension presents a compelling opportunity for artists and bands to monetize and protect their music, gain exposure, and participate in a global, collective movement to connect. Music is truly the universal, unifying language.”
.Music achieves this by providing a smart, multilingual registry solution, which incorporates secure-DNS technology. FightPiracy.org, one of the .music TLD ecosystem initiatives, addresses the need for innovation, creativity and new business models to fight piracy in the digital age.
"We are very pleased by the tremendous support that we have received from our fellow bands, artists and industry professionals within the music community for a .music TLD," added Paul Farkas, General Counsel and TLD Strategist of .music. “We are excited to be part of the Social Music event at Social Media Week to discuss the future of music, innovation and the significant impact of social media to all members of the music community.”
The .music (DOT MUSIC) registry (http://www.music.us), with offices in Los Angeles, New York, and Cyprus, Europe, was conceived in 2005. Its purpose is for ICANN delegation management of the .music Top-Level Domain (TLD), giving bands, artists, organizations and music industry professionals a unique identity and highly visible top-level domain on the web. The .music TLD utilizes a secure Domain Name System (DNS) platform and marketplace solution to enable artists and industry professionals to maximize the earning potential of their creative works and music-related products/services, connect directly with their fans, and increase their networking opportunities and global exposure.
