The west coast always comes first, which is why Los Angeles has had .la for a very long time. But now the East Coast is catching up, with .nyc!
There are, of course, a few obvious businesses that should definitely focus on getting a .nyc. Bagel makers, pizza joints, and the odd deli now have a unique opportunity to remind everybody who has the best stuff in the Big Apple.
.NYC is reserved to individuals, organizations and businesses having an address in one of the five boroughs of New York City (Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx and Staten Island), and it's entering GoLive today, Wednesday 8 October, 2014.
.nyc will cost $38.34 for a one-year registration at A rates.
We will reboot a storage unit on the Paris/FR datacenter tonight.

You will not need to reboot your server (IaaS) or instance (PaaS) during this maintenance.
Sorry for the inconvenience.
Update : end of the maintenance at 2AM CEST, sorry for the delay.
At the moment, .XYZ leads the pack of the new gTLDs, with over 500,000 sold since release.
That's why we can offer it at $4.00 instead of $13.63(at A rates) all October long. All .XYZ regular domain creations for a year at all rate levels are this price. See the .XYZ TLD info page for details.
Promotion valid through October 31st, 2014!
Note: This promotion is now over, but check back soon for more info!
The .nz namespace, previously restricted to third-level domains such as those ending in .co.nz, .net.nz, .org.nz, .ac.nz, etc, is being opened up to registrations of second-level .nz domains.
Holders of a third-level .nz domain name (e.g. a domain ending with .co.nz, .net.nz or .org.nz) have a Preferential Registration Eligibility (PRE), meaning you might be able to register the corresponding .nz domain name before anyone else. See below for details.
If there are no preexisting restrictions on a second level domain:
Names without corresponding co.nz, .net.nz or .org.nz names will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.
Holders of a third-level .nz domain name:
Depending on when your .nz domain name was registered, and if there are any other examples of your name in the .nz domain space, you'll be further classified as having either:
Preferential Registration or Reservation (PRR), which makes you eligible to register or reserve the shorter version of your domain name. This must be done within six months of the GoLive date. Reserving a domain name has no cost.
Conflicted status, which means your name has been registered in at least two second levels and so its registration at the second level needs to go through a conflict process. An example of this is one Registrant having example.org.nz and another, different Registrant having example.ac.nz.
For the moment, domains with such restrictions will appear as "not available" on our website, as we have not yet implemented the ability to register them. We're working on it and this option should be available soon (note, as mentioned above, that the domain will be reserved to you for six months).
You can check if priority restrictions exist on a given domain using the Registry's online tool at anyname.nz.
.nz domains will cost $24.00 for a one-year registration. For more information, see the Registry's FAQ.
