World Wide Web: How the .scot domain is helping unite Scots around the globe
Dot Scot Registry director Harry McGrath explains the story behind the .scot domain,
and what the future holds
WHEN we got together almost seven years ago to form Dot Scot Registry, it didn’t strike us that dotscot (.scot) would be the only top level domain name in the world that rhymes, alliterates and assonates. That’s not to say we didn’t see poetry in it. A cultural and community domain for "the worldwide family of Scots" sounded poetic enough to us.
