NYC One Of The First US Cities To Get Its Own gTLD

In The City That Never Sleeps

The internet is no exception to that.  And for New York businesses, a chance to have a domain with .nyc to follow it.  Other cities in the world, including London, Berlin and Paris have already had their city names become a gTLD (Generic Top Level Domain).  But in 2014-2015, there will be about 35 US cities getting their own TLD.

NYC-DomainsThe goal is to make it better for NYC businesses to promote tourism with having a .nyc in their domain.  Tens of millions of people visit the Big Apple every year and having .nyc is a perfect promotional tool to attract visitors to NYC businesses.

Do you have to dump your old .com?

Definitely not!  Lots of companies own their domain with .com, .net, .co to prevent other companies from piggy-backing off their established brands.  Adding .nyc is just another tool.

Where do you get a .nyc?

Get your .nyc at www.hostingdomainsweb.com and get your NYC pride on with your .nyc domain for

Be one of the first businesses in NYC to get your .nyc.

Can anyone get a .nyc?

Unfortunately only businesses, organizations and residents of NYC will be able to register a .nyc for their domain.  In order to possess one, you would have to have a physical address in NYC.


Working With A Web Designer

Like designing a new kitchen or bath, you want someone who understands your needs and goals. You may not want a trendy kitchen in an old Victorian home. Or maybe having two sinks in the bath is an essential. Building a website is no different. You want someone who will work with you and listen to your needs.

Waterviews Book

customer3In working with John Cardone on his website for his book, Waterviews. The look and feel of the website needed to match the look and feel of his book. Using the same color schemes and font styles help us achieve that goal.  As the brainstorming continued, we needed to add more pages to his site to accomplish the goal of having a list of his upcoming events.

John is in the process of writing a second book on Waterviews and we have already started to discuss website modifications to join both books into one site.  This site was written in HTML, CSS.

Smile Cube Photo Booth

customer4A great addition to any party, a photo booth is a fun idea to get people interacting at your party.  With this site, Paul (owner of Smile Cube) needed everything for this brand new business.  Together we went through many logo transformations before getting to the final project.

As for the site, Paul wanted an upbeat-kind-of-site that catches the attention of his visitors.  The site informs the visitors of its options as well let’s the visitors know what to expect from Smile Cube Photo Booth.  Linking to social media sites was important because pictures taken at events need to be online for previous guests to be able to find them.

Your Next Project
