Protect Your Brand with a .SCOT Domain
If you're located in Scotland and already have a domain name on another top-level domain (TLD), now is your chance to get your domain name on .SCOT! Scotland has never had its own domain before, so you should make sure your website isn't left behind! Not only will you be protecting your brand online, but you'll be showing your Scottish pride. If .SCOT is your main website, you should also consider purchasing your domain name on other domain extensions that make sense such as .UK or .CO.UK.
International .SCOT Domains
.SCOT supports internationalized domain names (IDNs) in Latin! Use our IDN search to find and register the right Latin .SCOT domain name now!
To register a .SCOT domain, you must be an individual or a legal entity with a nexus to the .SCOT community. This nexus means that you must be linked to the community at the time of registration and thereafter on a linguistic, cultural, tourism, or business basis, or any other activity conducive to the welfare of the worldwide Scottish community.
In addition to the requirement that the .SCOT registrant is a bona-fide member of the Scottish community, the registrant's use of the registered domain name must be:
- Generally accepted as legitimate; and
- beneficial to the cause and the values of the .SCOT community; and
- commensurate with the role and importance of the registered domain name; and
- in good faith at the time of the registration and thereafter.
Registrants are required to state their intended use of the registered domain name. A false statement of intended use is an indication of bad faith and can be the basis for the suspension of the domain name.
About Scotland, Home of the .SCOT Domain
Scotland is a part of the United Kingdom (UK) and covers the northern part of the island of Great Britain. Since Scotland is a part of the UK and not its own country, it did not have its own domain until now, with the release of .SCOT! Scotland has a population of over 5 million as of 2013 and boasts a GDP of over $235 billion as of 2012. Although English is its official language, Scottish Gaelic is also spoken.
