Past Events

.NYC Public Workshop
Monday, December 9, 2013 
6:00 - 8:00 pm
Feil Hall, 205 State Street, 22nd Floor

NYC Digital invites New Yorkers to a workshop and info session on .nyc, New York City's top-level domain.

A top-level domain (TLD) is what appears at the end of a domain name such as .com, .org or .edu. With the historic launch of .nyc, the City of New York will become the first city in the country with a top-level domain, creating new opportunities to support local businesses, organizations, and residents and establishing an unprecedented level of geographic authority to the digital sphere.

The meetup will begin with a presentation on .NYC by the City and experts, followed by group breakout sessions. Topics will include: what is a TLD, .NYC launch plans, why .NYC is important for your small business or nonprofit organization, how to apply for a .NYC domain, and more.

Co-sponsors:

Brooklyn Law School, Brooklyn Law Incubator & Policy (BLIP) Clinic, and the Center for Urban Business Entrepreneurship (CUBE)
