About the .scot extension
The .scot extension was created in 2014. It is managed by dotScot Registry, a non-profit organisation. .scot is not the official extension of Scotland like .uk is, but it is a geographic top-level domain (GeoTLD). Today, however, lots of Scottish users have a .scot domain name for their websites. Recognised in Scotland, .scot helps promote Scotland's culture, language and all its unique charms.
Why choose a .scot extension?
As a geographical domain name extension, .scot is deeply connected to the Scottish community. If you want to set up a business in Scotland, a .scot domain name is the best way to grow. Whether you’re selling local specialities or promoting cultural landmarks, the .scot extension demonstrates your localness to internet users. This is a guarantee of reliability and, therefore, an excellent way to build up trust with Scottish visitors. The distinctiveness of this extension offers a wider choice of domain names than with a generic extension like .com.
