In almost complete silence the extension .AMSTERDAM was launched last March. We believe this extension does deserve attention because it will be an important alternative to the .nl extension in the Netherlands. From June 1 to August 14 companies may register for a domain name.

If they are the only applicant the domain name will be granted. Should there be other applications there is a certain ranking to decide who gets the extension. This ranking is as follows: Governments go before companies and companies before people. Important in this is that everyone who is located in Amsterdam is ahead in the ranking. Should there be multiple entities with the same ranking an auction will be held. Many generic domain names have a special tariff. Starting August 15 anyone may register their domain name on a first come first served basis.
