NEW YORK — New York City likes to think of itself as a domain like no other, and now it’s close to being able to boast as much on the web.

The city has gotten a key approval for a “.nyc” suffix online, Mayor Michael Bloomberg and City Council Speaker Christine Quinn announced Tuesday. That would mean web addresses could end in “.nyc” instead of such common suffixes as “.com” or “.org.”

“Having our own unique, top-level domain – .nyc – puts New York City at the forefront of the digital landscape and creates new opportunities for our small businesses,” Bloomberg said in a statement.

The city’s new virtual realm is one of hundreds of new suffixes worldwide that have passed what are called “initial evaluations” by the agency in charge of online addresses, the Internet Corporation of Assigned Names and Numbers. The list includes Istanbul, London and Paris, among other cities. Adapted From huffingtonpost.com
