.scot Domain

.scot is a top-level domain for Scotland and Scottish culture, including the Gaelic and Scots languages.[1]

In 2008 dotCYMRU, dotEUS, dotSCOT and dotBZH formed ECLID. Later it was decided to allow almost any top-level domain for introduction some time in 2013, and a list of applications for these was published in June 2012; the domain .scot was included.[2]

On 27 January 2014, Dot Scot Registry announced that it had agreed terms to operate the .scot domain name, with plans to get it up and running later in summer of 2014.[3]

On 15 July 2014, .scot was officially launched.[4] The first .scot domain name to go live was calico.scot, registered by .scot pioneer hosting company Calico Internet Ltd.[5]

As of 12 September 2014, an alpha version of the Scottish Government's mygov.scot website was live.[6] On 17 February 2015, the Scottish Government migrated its website from scotland.gov.uk to gov.scot.[7][8] Likewise, the Scottish Parliament moved from scottish.parliament.gov.uk to parliament.scot in May 2016,[9] to coincide with the 2016 elections.[10]

The 2017 Global Amendment to the base New gTLD Registry Agreement is effective as of 31 July 2017.[11]

On 3 May 2018 the DotScot registry lifted registration restrictions on locality domains (based on towns, etc) and other premium names.[12]
