For Immediate Release: November 4, 2021
DotMusic Limited, the Cyprus company formed to own and operate the new .MUSIC community-based top-level domain name (TLD), is to announce that the first .MUSIC domain is live on the Internet: www.nic.music
“It is with great pride and excitement to announce that the first .MUSIC domain address is on the Internet. Now, Internet users from all around the world can type in nic.music to take them to the .MUSIC registry’s network information center website — the first step in bringing .MUSIC to the world,” said Constantine Roussos, the Founder and CEO of .MUSIC. “This is a monumental milestone for the global music community and the beginning of bringing a truly verified digital identity on the Internet representing community, authenticity and trust. The .MUSIC team is thrilled to embark on the next chapter of its journey and prepare for the global launch of .MUSIC.”
Now that .MUSIC is live, we will be entering the next phase and will be working closely with Internet Regulator ICANN to prepare for the .MUSIC launch, which is expected to come into effect in 2022.
.MUSIC provides global music community members with an international music industry standard for their digital identity and their official website address: www.yourname.music.
The .MUSIC initiative is supported by a coalition of the most prominent and recognized music-related organizations with members representing over 95% of music consumed globally.
.MUSIC differentiates itself from generic domains, such as .COM, by providing the world’s first official identity dedicated to music, with enhanced community-tailored policies that ensure that musicians, bands, industry professionals and organizations are able to register a trusted, secureand verified .MUSIC domain, branded under their unique digital identity.
