.scot is the new generic top-level domain (gTLD) for Scotland and Scottish culture that became available to the public in 2014.
The extension gives organisations and businesses the opportunity to clearly identify themselves as Scottish. It offers a unique marketing tool for businesses and a clear cultural identifier for organisations to promote Scotland all over the world.
As well as being used to promote Scottish art, culture, businesses and education it is also used by individuals who want to highlight their Scottish connections or simply like having ‘.scot’ as part of their internet identity or to build an online presence.
