St. Louis Sites Become Scottish Pioneers

STL.Scot and MarkSutherland.Scot become first two online .Scot sites in the US

Scotland now has its own domain, that of .Scot, which allows Scots across Scotland and around the world to have a domain name that celebrates their homeland.

“The time is ripe for the worldwide family of Scots to have their own domain, reflecting an online community defined by a shared commitment to Scottish identity, culture and economic promotion,” Alex Salmond, Scotland’s First Minister, said.

50 organizations, companies and individuals were selected to represent this new global presence by becoming .Scot pioneers, ahead of the general launch of the .Scot domain in late September, including the Scottish Government, and the two Scottish Independence-related sites, Yes Scotland and Better Together. And two of those selected, and the only two US-based sites given this status, are located in St. Louis.
