Miami becomes third US city with Internet domain name

September 17, 2015

Officials say Miami will become the third U.S. city to have a dedicated Internet domain name.

Mayor Tomas Regalado and Commissioner Francis Suarez announced the .miami domain during a news conference Thursday. Starting Oct. 2, Miami will join New York, with .nyc, and Las Vegas, with .vegas, in offering its own domain name.

A news release says the .miami domain is operated by Minds + Machines, a leading domain name registry. A significant portion of the revenue generated will go to the city.

The new .miami top-level domain was established as a part of the historic expansion of the Internet naming system administered by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. More than 7 million have now been registered across several hundred new top-level domains.
